Manchester City sorry for playing Chelsea anthem after Etihad Stadium thrashing

Man City using past glory in title race – Silva

City were helped by the vulnerable nature of Chelsea's defence but in truth few teams would have been able to survive the speed, precision and directness they produced.

Chelsea hardly had time to take stock before the visitors conceded again, with Gundogan slotting home in the 25th with a neat shot from the edge after a poor clearance from Antonio Rudiger.

Pep Guardiola's side returned to the top of the table in style yesterday as they swept Chelsea aside in a stunning 6-0 win.

They will then return to league action at the end of the month with another tricky game against Tottenham, who sit just five points behind City and Liverpool, at Stamford Bridge. "But I don't know what to expect; people keep asking me what I think about the situation, but I think that's a question which needs to be put to the club".

"They beat us at Stamford Bridge and against his Napoli last season it was tight - they were better at moments".

With Raheem Sterling weighing in with a brace and Ilkay Gundogan also scoring, the victory capped a momentous week for the Blues following league wins over Arsenal and Everton.

Eden Hazard went to sleep from Kevin de Bruyne's quickly taken free-kick and Bernardo Silva had acres of space to cross for the England worldwide to fire home.

The Argentine striker's afternoon got much better soon after, however, curving home a sublime 25-yard effort before poaching a third to become City's all-time leading league scorer.

The Blues weathered the storm for a while, but Agüero's penalty saw him earn a hat-trick early in the second half, before Sterling's late tap-in completed the 6-0 hammering. Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley inexplicably headed a clearance back toward danger and Aguero pounced by shooting on the turn.

With that hat hatrick, AGUERO has now rqualled Alan SBEARER's record of 11 Premier League hat tricks. We had to defend deeper in the last part of the first half. Sterling was brought down in the box by Cesar Azpilicueta and Aguero stepped up and sent Kepa Arrizabalaga the wrong way from the spot.

Even after Aguero went off to a standing ovation, City's strength in depth shone through as Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez and David Silva came off the bench. Just as Leicester pressed for an equalizer, Son Heung-min scored a breakaway goal in the first minute of stoppage time.
