Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City are matching the hunger of his great Barcelona teams after moving back top of the Premier League. This was an instant riposte to Liverpool's victory over Bournemouth on Saturday, a performance simply underlining City's intense desire to retain their title.

"We can not forget Chelsea demand a lot of our pressing as they have a lot of quality, and Sergio sometimes was a little bit exhausted to do that, but of course in front of goal he is a special player".

'To be honest, I don't know what to expect'.

A brace from Sergio Aguero gave City a 3-0 lead after just 20 minutes and Ilkay Gundogan soon made it 4-0.

Loftus-Cheek gives his team some extra quality going forward when he plays and could be unsafe on the counter attack.

Talk about Carragher killing two birds with one stone! Football is better if you stay calm. "We are lucky to score three from the first four actions". At half-time, I told the lads that if we were able to react, we'd come back stronger than ever'.

Although Aguero headed against the crossbar early in the second half, he only had to wait until the 56th to seal his 15th City hat trick - and a record-equaling 11th in the Premier League with Alan Shearer.

"I think that is right".

"Then, as I always do, I went to salute him afterwards".

The meeting of the last two champions was a complete mismatch as Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick for the second successive weekend. The ex-Napoli boss said the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva are among the most technically gifted players in Europe, but contended that his team would still be able to play their natural game if linchpin Jorginho was once again nullified by the opposition.
