Riyad Mahrez returns to training with Leicester

Riyad Mahrez returns to training with Leicester

Sergio Aguero scored an incredible four goals, Raheem Sterling put his terrible miss against Burnley last week behind him to score and Pep Guardiola's team went 16 points clear with 11 games to play.

With the pair ably backed by a sensational supporting cast, including Leroy Sane, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, City have scored 20 more goals than the next-best attacking side, Liverpool, and amassed 16 points more than city rivals United, in second place.

They are winless in their last 13 Premier League away games against the current top six (D4, L9).

Manchester United have joined Manchester City in the race to sign Leicester City defender, Harry Maguire according to reports this morning.

"What happens today, it is a game we couldn't afford to lose", Wenger said.

Kun Aguero then completed his hat-trick after a horrific error by Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel lost control of the ball and presented the ball to the City frontman, who delightfully dinked the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper to seal an emphatic 4-1 lead for Pep Guardiola's side.

Sergio Aguero won the Man of the Match award after scoring four goals but both of them were simply sensational. He hit four for City for the third time in his career and is now closing in on Kane at the top of the Premier League goal charts. Under-fire Sam Allardyce's side have dramatically tailed off, winning just one of their last eight games, while Roy Hodgson has inspired the Eagles to resurgence since being parachuted in.


Another game at the Etihad, another goal (or four) for Sergio Aguero.

But they weren't level for long as De Bruyne worked his magic yet again, this time from the left wing. He fought, he played good, scored goals and that's why he's so important to us.

The 24-year-old only moved to Leicester last summer, moving from relegated Hull City in a £17m transfer on a five-year deal that runs until 2022.

Claude Puel's decision to change Leicester's formation at half-time was made to appear all the more freakish when City scored twice early in the second period.

A neat exchange between Sterling and De Bruyne on the right flank allowed the latter to tease a low cross to gift Aguero a tap-in.

Despite their slack second half display, Alexandre Lacazette missed a glorious chance in stoppage time when he was clean through but slotted wide of Hugo Lloris' far post and given Spurs' wastefulness you got the sense Arsenal were going to nick a point.
