Red hot Aguero's latest hat-trick moves him closer to Messi

Red hot Aguero's latest hat-trick moves him closer to Messi

Pep Guardiola's side blew Chelsea away in an extraordinary game at the Etihad Stadium, with Sergio Aguero scoring a hat-trick, Raheem Sterling netting twice and Ilkay Gundogan also finding the net. You go one goal down, and suddenly you're four down, and you don't know how. At the beginning we were playing better at home than away and now we are better away than at home.

It was also the first time Chelsea conceded four goals or more in consecutive top-flight matches since December 1990 after they lost 4-0 to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on January 30.

"I didn't see my football [against City]".

Manchester City made sure they returned to the top of the Premier League table in style by absolutely putting the visiting Chelsea to the sword. At the beginning it worked, so now we need to understand the reason why at the moment it isn't working. Not a bad 65-minute run out for the in-form forward, who took his tally to 23 for the season and made it nine goals in his last six outings.

Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from two yards. Silva had weaved through the area to set up a gilt-edged opportunity but the Argentinian uncharacteristically poked wide. Aguero was lurking in the six-yard box and punished the former Everton midfielder with a sharp turn and shot.

Aguero's hat-trick equalled Alan Shearer's competition record of 11 and was also his 15th in City colours. In the Sky Sports studio, Jamie Carragher described it as "criminal" negligence from Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso.

With the match over, it was Dean's time to shine when in the second half Cesar Azpilicueta fouled Sterling in the box.

Sterling wrapped up a brilliant afternoon's work after substitute David Silva opened up the Chelsea defense yet again and Zinchenko picked out the winger to tap in from close range.

Maurizio Sarri insisted he would be happy if Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich calls him in the wake of Sunday's humiliating 6-0 defeat against Manchester City and challenged the club to provide clarity on his future.

Kieran Trippier's corner was played short to Eriksen, who floated in an inviting cross for Davison Sanchez to power home a diving head for his first Tottenham goal in the 33rd minute.

"He played the last two games and was key".
