Manchester City were on fire again on Saturday as they made yet another step towards the Premier League title by beating Leicester City 5-1.
City’s opening goal, coming from Raheem Sterling in the third minute, set the tone and from there Pep Guardiola’s men were simply unstoppable.
Netting City’s second in the 48th minute after Jamie Vardy had levelled proceedings, Sergio Aguero simply stole the show with three more second-half goals to kill off the game.
His first came from some neat play down the left, which led to a precision cross into the six-yard box from where Aguero made no mistake.
His second goal was a reward for his own hard work, closing down Kasper Schmeichel and forcing the keeper into a mistake before Kevin De Bruyne threaded a perfect pass in behind for Aguero to latch onto.
The former Atletico Madrid man’s hat-trick goal came from a bit of opportunism when Schmeichel misplaced a pass, allowing the striker to lift the ball over him and into the net.
Aguero’s fourth and final goal in the 90th minute was, however, the pick of the lot.
With the Argentina international being urged to shoot he duly answered the crowd’s cries and smashed an edge-of-the-box strike in off the crossbar.
This result now puts City a mammoth 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester United ahead of their clash away to Newcastle on Sunday.
Next up for the Citizens is the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie away to Basel on Tuesday night. All we can say is good luck to the Swiss giants.
