Sergio Aguero scored another hat-trick as Manchester City emphatically defeated Chelsea 6-0 at Etihad Stadium to return to the top of the Premier League table.
Raheem Sterling fired into the roof of the net after only four minutes before Aguero hit a quickfire double, curling a superb shot into the top corner after 13 minutes before poaching his second and City’s third six minutes later.
Ilkay Gundogan made the score 4-0 after 25 minutes while Aguero’s penalty 11 minutes after half-time put him level with Alan Shearer’s PL record of 11 hat-tricks.
Sterling added a sixth 10 minutes from time after a neat move down the left.
City are top on goal difference, level with Liverpool on 60 points having played a match more.
Chelsea drop to sixth on 50 points, behind Arsenal on goal difference.
