Manchester City's 'incredible desire' reminds Guardiola of Barcelona teams

Sarri Technically Manchester City have the world's best midfield

Sergio Aguero scored a landmark hat-trick as Manchester City stormed back to the top of the table courtesy of a thumping 6-0 victory over Chelsea at Etihad Stadium.

"I know what he wants to do", he said.

The Argentine striker's afternoon got much better soon after, however, curving home a sublime 25-yard effort before poaching a third to become City's all-time leading league scorer. The Manchester City forward proved that with the team's second goal in the opening 15 minutes, an absolute beauty curling in from outside the area.

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho at Manchester United in December, it appeared Chelsea were in a straight tussle with Arsenal for fourth spot, with Sarri's side three points ahead of their London rivals and 11 above United.

"Sometimes lately I don't play Kevin, Sergio, it's what I believe, I see the opponents, it's hard".

"We are top of the league but we have to wait to see when Liverpool go to Old Trafford now as we have played one more game", he said.

"So now we need only to understand the reason why at the moment it isn't working".

The Blues were at our bewitching best against the Londoners with Sergio Aguero claiming a hat-trick, Raheem Sterling scoring twice and Ilkay Gundogan also on the scoresheet.

Who are the best team of the last decade - is Guardiola right?

Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from close range.

City's average positions showed just how high up the pitch Sterling played, allowing him to get in behind Azpilicueta while Aguero exploited the space between around Rudiger. Aguero was lurking in the six-yard box and punished the former Everton midfielder with a sharp turn and shot.

Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard did threaten at times, but they could do nothing to prevent Chelsea's humiliation. In the Sky Sports studio, Jamie Carragher described it as "criminal" negligence from Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso.

There seemed to be no let-up from City with De Bruyne firing a free kick at Arrizabalaga and Aguero shooting into the side-netting.

The Merseysiders' game in hand is away to a rejuvenated Manchester United on February 24 - the same day City face Chelsea in the League Cup final.

Kieran Trippier's corner was played short to Eriksen, who floated in an inviting cross for Davison Sanchez to power home a diving head for his first Tottenham goal in the 33rd minute.
