Aguero hits four goals as ruthless city massacre Leicester

Riyad Mahrez put in a transfer request to try to force through a transfer to the Etihad Stadium but after City refused to meet Leicester's valuation, the Algerian global spent a week away from the training ground.

Manchester City extended their top-of-the-table lead to 16 points, with Manchester United and Liverpool both yet to play on Sunday.

"With that spirit and with a lot of problems - today we had three guys from the second team on the bench because we have a lot of problems". A one-two with Sterling gave him space to cross, but he still had to find a way through the Leicester defence who had now switched to a back four.

De Bruyne's second assist, this time for Aguero, was perhaps even more impressive than his first, a wonderfully weighted, outswinging pass that left Leicester's defenders little choice but to watch Aguero tap in at the back post.

After Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy exchanged first-half goals, Aguero took over and effectively ended the game with two strikes within eight minutes after the break. I think what he's saying, if it infiltrates down that general message of how football and how successful football can be played that will be a great thing for English football. "If we are able to win the title it will be something special for us".

And Puel claimed both he and the Algeria worldwide will not focus their efforts on the rest of the season without any issues.

"He has maintained good fitness to come back quickly".

"My example is words; the players' examples are the facts and one of the best players we have is the guy who runs the most and fights the most". Since the beginning of the transfer window we took the decision at the club to protect the team.

"Now it is about time to move on together and of course we are stronger with him".

The tempo of the game was frantic from the very beginning, but City managed to control the possession well with their slick passing moves and intelligent off the ball running.
