Gallery: Rampant City hit Chelsea for six

As Sergio Aguero made his way towards referee Mike Dean to collect the match ball for his hat-trick, as is tradition, Dean hid it up his jumper, as is not tradition.

Aguero should even have had more, having missed a sitter in the early stages and headed against bar on a dismal afternoon for Chelsea, whose manager Maurizio Sarri headed straight down the tunnel at full-time.

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick against Chelsea.

Chelsea had no time to settle before Raheem Sterling fired City ahead in the fourth minute with a side-foot finish after a quick free-kick from Kevin De Bruyne caught the visiting defence napping.

Chelsea's César Azpilicueta is one of the best and most adaptable defenders in the Premier League.

He said: "I don't know, you have to ask the club".

Asked if the thrashing showed his style of play simply will not work in England, he said: "No, because today I didn't see my football".

Silverware could still be collected in two weeks.

"If you said at the start of the season, Chelsea challenging for top-four and in the other competitions and in the League Cup final, you'd have snapped your hand off".

Guardiola fell to the floor in exasperation when Aguero somehow side-footed wide with his easiest chance of the game moments later.

Pep Guardiola believes the key to Manchester City's relentlessness lies in suffocating his own players with expectation. After that we worked, moved forward.

Chelsea was un-picked after only four minutes at the Etihad Stadium.

Eden Hazard went to sleep from Kevin de Bruyne's quickly taken free-kick and Bernardo Silva had acres of space to cross for the England global to fire home. "I don't know", he replied. "I told him not to do it again, but I think reaction was a little better".

Aguero should have doubled the lead nearly immediately but remarkably missed from two yards.

It was Chelsea's third consecutive away loss in the league, following a 2-0 collapse at Arsenal and 4-0 humiliation against Bournemouth.

Lawrenson added: "The stories about Eden Hazard going to Real Madrid just seem to get stronger and stronger every week, but as long as he keeps performing then that is not an issue".

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.

Pochettino's side took the lead through Davinson Sanchez's first goal for the club, but they were indebted to Hugo Lloris for saving Jamie Vardy's spot-kick after the interval at Wembley.
