Pep Guardiola's side romped to a 5-1 win against Leicester at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday with Aguero scoring four times in the second half, but De Bruyne took numerous plaudits for pulling the strings in midfield and setting up City's first three goals.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel is thrilled with Riyad Mahrez's fitness despite training just once ahead of their English Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Aguero is the fourth player - after Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Harry Kane - to score 20-plus goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns.

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

Leicester did incredibly well to head into the half-time break level with the champions elect, and they caused City a lot of problems in the first half, especially through the pace of Jamie Vardy.

Pep Guardiola's side didn't give their opponents any chance of mounting an attack during what was a commanding second half display.

"The first half was good, but when we conceded the goal it was a bad time for us, it changed the game".

On 77 minutes, it was back to business for City and Aguero, who completed his hat-trick after a howler from Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring in the third minute, latching onto a brilliant Kevin De Bruyne delivery. "We can try and do absolutely everything", Guardiola told the BBC. Congratulations to him because it's not easy to score four goals. "If we are able to win the title it will be something special for us". "Now it's important to look forward, and put this behind us, with the next games coming up". Riyad came back. He perhaps made a mistake but it's important to have our best players with us.

Manchester City were linked to the 24-year old in the January transfer window, but they chose to buy Athletic Bilbao's Aymeric Laporte instead for a record £57.1 million.
