Manchester City thump Southampton to return to top of Premier League

It was the Argentine's 150th league goal for City, a landmark that moved him level with Michael Owen in eighth place on the Premier League's all-time goalscoring list.

Manchester City's Leroy Sane celebrates scoring their sixth goal with Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden.

Aguero doubled City's lead in just the 13th minute as Pep Guardiola's ran riot at the Etihad Stadium.

Despite turning 33 earlier this year, Fernandinho has started all of City's 14 Premier and Champions League matches this season, while the more creative talents of David Silva, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling have had to live with Guardiola's rotation policy.

They settled for six goals in the end - the fourth time in 11 Premier League games that they have scored at least five times in a game - and might easily have scored more had the occasion demanded more ruthlessness.

Social media was full of love for Aguero and what he has meant to the Premier League since his arrival in Manchester.

Chelsea reacted by bringing on dangerman Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic for Willian and Ross Barkley, and within minutes the home team was back in front in the London derby.

"I know people say we have a lot of money, that's true, but despite of that it's incredible the people I'm working with and I'm a lucky guy to be here".

Two assists, a key role for Silva's goal and two strikes of his own - there is not much more Sterling could have done.

Put in a solid shift for the Terriers as they recorded their first win of the season in a 1-0 victory against fellow strugglers Fulham last night. I like to have that feeling that we won 6-1 and are top but at the same time we have to improve in many situations to be a more stable team. The Agrentine then sent in a low cross for Sterling, who tucked the ball home with his second attempt.

The hosts were guilty of taking their foot off the gas in the second half, and it could have been game on again as James Ward-Prowse and Ings both had attempts kept out by Ederson - the latter nodding a corner downward to force the Brazilian into a fine stop down low.

The goal takes AGUERO joint top scorer on the league with seven goals. He then added a fifth after the break and Sane made it six in stoppage time.
