Another win, another avalanche of goals, their lead at the top of the Premier League stretched to a scarcely believable 16 points and another show stopping turn from that serial slaughterer of defenders. When Sergio Aguero received the ball from Phil Foden just outside the penalty area as the clock hit 90 minutes, the young Manchester City midfielder was screaming for it back.

Aguero, though, had only one thing in mind at that point and crashed a thunderous strike in off the underside of the crossbar for his fourth goal of an arresting afternoon. The Argentina striker is now just three goals short of a double century for Manchester City and just six shy of bettering his season best goals tally for the club of 33.

It is only early February and Aguero already has 28 goals in 32 appearances, half of which have come in his last seven games at the Etihad. Do not let anyone tell you this man is past his best. “When one guy is able to score four goals, he deserves all the credit,” Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager, said.

Guardiola’s side now have 72 points and are unbeaten at the Etihad since December 2016. Seven more wins will guarantee the title. The Premier League is widely as the most competitive in Europe but Guardiola is in danger of turning it into a one horse show like Scotland and could become the first to smash the 100 point barrier.

When it was put to Guardiola he was making it look easy, he replied: “So far, yeah. I would like to take that question after 38 games. So far we have 72 points in February so it is a lot. We’ve enjoyed the last six or seven months but to be admired and loved we have to win the title.”
