Sergio Aguero hits treble as sublime City put six past Chelsea

Chelsea: So is this Chelsea more like the team we saw lose 4-0 to Bournemouth, the one that beat Huddersfield 5-0 or somewhere in between?

Man-of-the-match Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick, curling a superb shot into the top corner in the 13th minute before poaching his second and City's third six minutes later.

Aguero is now the joint top scorer in the Premier League with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and quickly brushed off the miss.

Raheem Sterling started and ended the scoring and Ilkay Gundogan also netted in the first quarter of the game as City ended what could have been a testing week with a trip to Everton in between the visits of Arsenal and Chelsea with maximum points.

Chelsea was un-picked after only four minutes at the Etihad Stadium.

Maurizio Sarri has taken a not-so-subtle swipe at Roman Abramovich amid suggestions his future at Chelsea could be under threat following Sunday's 6-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Wright, 26, was averaging 6.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in a depth role with the Raptors this season. He had surgery after suffering a dislocated left thumb on December 12 and has not played since.

Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from close range.

Guardiola pointed to Aguero's 40th-minute opener in last month's 2-1 win over fellow title challengers Liverpool as the flawless example to illustrate his point.

The last time Chelsea conceded four goals in a half was in 1999 against Sunderland. City hosts Chelsea in the game of the week.

Aguero was inches away from completing his 15th City hat-trick when he headed against the woodwork from a De Bruyne cross.

Well, we didn't have to wait long to find out the answer. Aguero stepped up and sent Kepa Arrizabalaga the wrong way from the spot.

And Silva's pass opened the visitors up again for the sixth as he picked out Oleksandr Zinchenko who crossed for Sterling to tap home. Chelsea's manager went straight down the tunnel at the end.
