Manchester City showed no mercy on beleaguered West Ham by romping to a 3-0 victory in the second leg of their League Cup semifinal on Tuesday, completing a 9-0 aggregate thrashing.

Alvaro Negredo scored twice and Sergio Aguero added another goal to ensure City will contest its first League Cup final since 1976, against either Sunderland or Manchester United at Wembley Stadium on March 2.

Having grabbed a hat trick in City's 6-0 win in the first leg two weeks ago, Negredo ensured there would be no miracle turnaround by heading in the opening goal at Upton Park after less than three minutes.

Aguero clipped home a deft finish in the 24th and Negredo wrapped up the scoring in the 59th.

Sunderland leads its semifinal 2-1 after the first leg.
