Unstoppable Man City trounces Chelsea 6-0, regains Premier League lead

Manchester, England, Feb 10 (efe-epa).- Manchester City reclaimed the Premier League's top spot with its 6-0 rout of Chelsea in a matchday 26 contest held at Etihad stadium on Sunday.

Argentine striker Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick for the City, while England winger Raheem Sterling netted a brace and German midfielder Ilkay Gundogan scored once in the defending champion's win.

With the victory, Man City regained the PL lead with 65 points, ahead of Liverpool, who has game in hand, on goal differential, while Chelsea fell to the sixth place in the table with 50 points, just behind Arsenal on goal differential also.

Sterling opened the scoring for Manchester City with a close-range right-footed finish just four minutes into the play following a cross by teammate Bernardo Silva who was unmarked inside the area.

Aguero then fired a remarkable long-range shot for his first personal goal, making it 2-0 for the City in minute 13, assisted by Ukrainian midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko.

After seven minutes, Aguero struck again for the 3-0 goal with a left-footed half-volley shot from inside the box that got past Chelsea goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga, following a bad clearance from Ross Barkley at the edge of the area.

Gundogan secured City's first-half 4-0 lead in the 25th minute, with a right-footed shot from outside the box, sending the ball into the lower-right corner of the net.

After the intermission, Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta fouled Sterling inside the area, paving the way for Aguero to seal his 11th PL hat-trick after successfully delivering from the 12-yard spot in minute 56, tying with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah of Egypt as PL top scorers with 17 goals each.

Furthermore, the Argentine forward has scored as many PL hat-tricks as record holder and former England, Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers striker, Alan Shearer.

Sterling then sealed the City's 6-0 rout of Chelsea with a close-range left-footed finish, 10 minutes before second-half stoppage time, following a low cross by teammate David Silva.

Manchester City, thus, has become the first PL side to score more than once in 15 consecutive home matches in the top English soccer league, pulling equal to Tottenham Hotspur who achieved the feat in December 1965.

The start of this run dates back to the City's 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the last home game of the 2017-2018 season on May 9, 2018.
