Winning Premier League title will be special for Manchester City - Pep Guardiola

Since the beginning of the transfer window we took the decision at the club to protect the team. Under U.S. law, 20 percent of the vote is from the athletes' council while the professional, adult and youth councils have 25.8 percent each. "Congratulations to him because it's not easy to score four goals", added Guardiola.

However, shortly before the half-hour mark the visitors equalised when City were punished by a goal which owed much to the dogged persistence of Vardy.

Jamie Redknapp has praised Kevin de Bruyne's "imagination, guile and genius" after the midfielder gave yet another scintillating performance in Manchester City's 5-1 demolition of Leicester City.

Former Liverpool captain Redknapp described the Belgian's quality as "unique" and feels he is a superior ball-player to midfielders past and present such as Cesc Fabregas, Frank Lampard and Ryan Giggs.

"There is still a lot to play, I don't know what is going to happen".

"Now it is about time to move on together and of course we are stronger with him".

Broke down attacks, won the ball back, disrupted Leicester midway through the game and made some good attacking forays through the centre.

Stoke City drew 1-1 with Brighton and Hove Albion after Xherdan Shaqiri cancelled out Jose Izquierdo's brilliant opener for the visitors.

It is difficult to determine which would be sweeter for City supporters.

But Pep Guardiola's men stepped things up a notch after the break, with De Bruyne setting up a quick-fire Aguero double to effectively end Leicester's chances, with the Argentinian scoring for the seventh successive game at the Etihad across all competitions.

"The great players buy themselves time, the game looks like it stands still when they've got the ball and De Bruyne has that capacity".

Aguero then doubled his personal tally three minutes later before rounding off his hatrick with a dink over the statuesque Kasper in goal.

Harry Kane proved Arsenal's nemesis again as his bullet header earned Tottenham a deserved 1-0 victory in the north London derby. On came Mahrez and Iheanacho for Diabaté and Chilwell.

"It was difficult to play them in the first half with them playing a 4-5-1, but in the second half we found more space with the wingers", Guardiola said in his post-match interview.
