As David Silva cuts open Chelsea's exhausted, helpless, crumbling defence with a trademark reverse through ball that most players wouldn't have even entertained, we're all left thinking 'surely not another'. Manchester City's left-back for the day, Oleksandr Zinchenko, latches onto the ball right on the byline and plays it perfectly weighted across the face of goal to the arriving Raheem Sterling, who finds himself unchallenged by the penalty spot, able to effortlessly stroke the ball past Kepa Arrizabalaga to make it six of the best for the Cityzens at the Etihad.
Sterling's left-footed effort ten minutes from time completed the rout that he had started 76 minutes earlier, cementing City's stance at the top of the Premier League ahead of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool on goal difference. City were once again outstanding throughout the whole of yesterday's encounter; Sergio Aguero bagged his 11th Premier League hat-trick, while the supporting cast of Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan proved way too much for their helpless opponents to handle.
Impossible to break down and typically ruthless in attack, Pep Guardiola's title favourites very much got revenge on Sarri's Chelsea side who had inflicted a 2-0 defeat on them just three months ago. The Sky Blues have now put themselves back into pole position to obtain back-to-back league titles come May, with their recent blip against Newcastle nothing but a distant memory. City now look as though they're back to their best, however Chelsea's performance yesterday was an embarrassment, with manager Maurizio Sarri's future at the Bridge now looking incredibly uncertain.
