Sergio Aguero becomes Manchester City's all-time record league goalscorer

"If they are going to win the league they need to maintain that standard every week because they can't afford to make mistakes".

And this was their worst loss in any competition since 1991 after failing to recover from Raheem Sterling's fourth-minute opener.

In the past week City have beaten Arsenal at home and Everton away before taking Maurizio Sarri's side to pieces with four goals in the opening 25 minutes.

And Sarri completing his first season in charge is now far from certain.

"Something is changing. At the moment I am not able to see the reason but I have to work for this because my target is to play my football, not to change another football because at the moment we are playing another football".

While there is no doubting our chief football writer that this display was one of the most impressive, the line got us thinking about just what was the best outing from the top flight.

"It is hard to describe our performance, it's hard also to understand".

City boss Pep Guardiola, though, urged the Chelsea hierarchy not to be trigger happy with Sarri. People think if you buy players you can immediately come in and win, but you need time. "I don't know why".

"I'm surprised because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home so I don't know what has happened but at the moment we are in trouble", Sarri added.

It also saw him become City's leading scorer in league football with 160 goals, extending his overall tally for the club to 222 in the process.

Guardiola fell to the floor in exasperation when Aguero somehow side-footed wide with his easiest chance of the game moments later. But of course as usually I will go to say hello to him later, as usual.

And Gundogan's shot from the edge of the area then had too much power for the world's most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to compound Chelsea's woes.

But Dean, being Dean, opted to have a little fun, hiding the ball up the back of his shirt out of sight of Aguero, whose 11th hat-trick puts him level with Alan Shearer for the most in Premier League history.

And Silva's pass opened the visitors up again for the sixth as he picked out Oleksandr Zinchenko who crossed for Sterling to round off the scoring 10 minutes from time.
