Six minutes later, Argentine striker Sergio Aguero doubled the score, notching his 150th Premier League goal, while Spanish midfielder David Silva added the third goal in the 18th minute, reports Efe news.

City have plenty of momentum on their side thanks to a run of nine matches without defeat, and just one loss in 16 outings all term, which will come in handy as they have another busy week ahead.

In the other Sunday game, Chelsea thumped Crystal Palace 3-1 in the London Derby at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea.

The home side quickly won a corner and the Chelsea stopper had to be alert to keep out Stanislaw Drahun's header, but the two chances resulted in Chelsea becoming more assured on the ball. Pedro found compatriot Alvaro Morata who took the touch before smashing a powerful effort past Wayne Hennessey.

Signing Loftus-Cheek could seriously help West Ham break into the top half this season, which would be a great first campaign for Pellgrini. The only negative of their campaign to date, in fact, has been their profligate nature in front of goal.

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has been included in the squad for Thursday's Europa League match at BATE Borisov.

Manchester City thump Southampton to return to top of Premier League
Two assists, a key role for Silva's goal and two strikes of his own - there is not much more Sterling could have done. Social media was full of love for Aguero and what he has meant to the Premier League since his arrival in Manchester.

BATE had no such difficulty at the other end and the home side nearly went ahead in the 12th minute through Dzmitry Baha, but the midfielder's 25-yard strike hit the post with Kepa Arrizabalaga beaten.

Demarai Gray scored the only goal of the game and was then booked for removing his shirt to show a message for the man who inspired Leicester's title win two seasons ago.

Morata would have been happier to have taken the matchball home and he was visibly annoyed after Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey read his attempted lob when through on goal in stoppage time at the weekend.

The win moved Chelsea above Liverpool into second place courtesy of a superior goal difference.

Chelsea's evolution under the auspices of enigmatic Italian Maurizio Sarri has been seamless.
