John Stones was delighted to open his Man City goalscoring account in the FA Cup.
Reflecting on the triumph and his effort, the England man laughed: "It’s been a long time coming to be honest!
"I should have scored a few in previous games and it’s nice to get one in a special cup."
"I thought we moved the ball well, first and foremost, and that got us the chances," the defender declared.
"We changed our system a bit, playing as a diamond with the front three. The overall performance was really good."
The defender was of course, also pleased to have denied West Ham a route back into the game.
"To get a clean sheet for us defenders, which we haven’t had too many of, we’re thrilled," he added.
