EPL: Aguero nets four in Man City rout

His three assists in City's 5-1 trouncing of Leicester on Saturday brought his tally for the season in all competitions to a staggering 18 while he's also popped up eleven goals this term. He said last season that Messi "is on a table on his own" and De Bruyne could sit by the "table beside". "It's not one game it's all season, every three days playing that way". In Premier League, on the other hand, there are several top clubs able to win the title.

Guardiola believes the win was "one of the best" performances his players have produced since he took over at City but urged them not to let their intensity drop.

Champions-elect Man City looked strangely out of sorts during the first 45 minutes of their English Premier League clash with Leicester at the Etihad, reported Reuters, but the Foxes were no match for their hosts once Aguero found his groove.

"You have to be there in the latter stages. Without the latter stages you will not be nominated".

Liverpool will be hoping to see the former AS Roma man build on Sunday's outing against FC Porto in the Champions League and carry momentum towards the concluding part of the season.

Aguero is the fourth player after Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Harry Kane, to score 20-plus goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns. There's a realistic chance the two Spanish clubs might not even make it out of the last 16, with struggling Madrid taking on PSG and Barcelona meeting Chelsea over two legs.

"I am so happy to win", Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

"If the 10 minutes that happened at Anfield happen in the Champions League we are out".

For Kevin De Bruyne, it was perhaps the ultimate compliment.

"To be fair, when I am busy playing football I don't care".

West Ham United climbed five points above the relegation zone and ended a run of three league games without victory with a 2-0 win over Watford thanks to goals from Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic.

"It is not easy because they had five guys at the back, four in front - there are nearly no spaces".

With a League Cup final date against Arsenal looming at the end of the month, Aguero says City are focused on silverware rather than individual plaudits.
