Beaten black and blue by Aguero & Co

The New Indian Express - - SPORT - AFP

SER­GIO Aguero grabbed a hat-trick as Manch­ester City scored four times in­side 25 min­utes to thrash Chelsea 6-0 and leapfrog Liver­pool again to top spot in the Premier League on goal dif­fer­ence on Sun­day. Aguero should have had even more than three as the Ar­gen­tine missed a glo­ri­ous early chance and hit the bar in the sec­ond-half in a hu­mil­i­at­ing af­ter­noon for Mau­r­izio Sarri’s men. 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. Jur­gen Klopp’s men main­tain the ad­van­tage of a game in hand. City look de­ter­mined to be­come the first side in a decade to re­tain the Premier League. Chelsea slipped to sixth. Re­sults: Man City 6 Chelsea 0; Tot­ten­ham 3 Le­ices­ter 1.
