Manchester City were in rare form as the champions crushed Chelsea 6-0 to return to the top of the Premier League.

With phenomenal displays all over the pitch, Sergio Aguero just about edged player of the match honours with his 15th City hat-trick, but not far behind was the sensational Raheem Sterling who nabbed a brace and the tireless Bernardo Silva.

It was the best display of Pep Guardiola’s tenure in my humble opinion.

On to the reaction:

Pep Guardiola Reaction

“The desire to want to do the best is incredible and similar,” Pep stated. “For us to get 100 points, break all records and continue to push them and push them.

“These guys work a lot. The only way I know is the more you win more you have to work.

“The only way we can maintain the level and compete against Tottenham and Liverpool. Liverpool have a bigger trophy room than us, so to be there (at the top of the Premier League table means a lot!”

“Yes. We played good, the first four times we arrived we scored. Sergio made an incredible goal, but it wasn’t easy, we defended deeper like never before,” said Guardiola.

“They had one chance but they caused problems and found the space.

“(Scoring) Six goals against Chelsea is not easy. Not just for today, but for Arsenal and Everton too. Now we can have two days rest and start preparing for Newport (in the FA Cup next Saturday).

Sergio Aguero Reaction

“I think it might be one of the best performances of this team so it was a great game and an even better result.”

Aguero’s hat-trick against Chelsea was his 15th in all competitions for City and his 11th in the Premier League putting him joint top of the Premier League hat-trick records charts with Alan Shearer.

”I am very happy for the hat-tricks and for breaking records, both in the Premier League and for the club.

”I try to keep those good memories and especially thanks to my team-mates for helping me in the game and what matters most in the end is us winning.

”What matters most to me is to try and finish the season in the best way and try to win some silverware.”
