Goals from Raheem Sterling (2), Aymeric Laporte, Rodrigo and Phil Foden inspired City back to the top of the Premier League table.

City ran out 5-0 winners at the Etihad Stadium in a superb display of attacking football.

Pep Guardiola's men made a fast start and were rewarded after 19 minutes, with Sterling calmly heading in a fine move involving Ilkay Gundodan and Joao Cancelo, taking his league tally to 11 for the season.

With just over five minutes remaining until the interval, we doubled the lead through Laporte, who stroked into an empty net from close range after Gundogan and Ruben Dias were both denied by Martin Dubravka.

Just seconds after the hour mark, City added a third as Rodrigo powerfully headed in from Kevin de Bruyne's corner, the Spaniard's third goal in his last three league appearances.

The visitors almost pulled one back with ten minutes to go, but Callum Wilson was superbly denied by Ederson.

With the clock ticking into added time at the end of the match, substitute Foden superbly directed Oleksandr Zinchenko's cross into the bottom corner.

Two minutes later, Sterling added his second and City's fifth of the afternoon to put the icing on the cake and propel us back to the top of the Premier League table.
