And he heaps plaudits on hat-trick hero, Sergio Aguero.

"Demolished" would be the right term to use as Manchester City registered a thumping 6:1 win over Huddersfield Town to continue their stunning early-season form.

City added a second six minutes later through Jesus, who was perfectly placed to drill a shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards after Benjamin Mendy had been prevented from entering the penalty area.

The sight - three months later - of a healthy looking baby boy in a City kit was too much for some people on social media.

But City had to wait for a devastating 10-minute spell midway through the first half with three superbly taken goals.

Even though Aguero bagged a well-deserved hat-trick, it was David Silva who stole the spotlight with a magnificent performance against the Premier League minnows.

Aguero got the ball rolling on 25 minutes, scoring a delightful chip via an assist from his goalkeeper, Ederson. The second episode of the eight-part series focuses on City's victory against United at Old Trafford last season.

Detroit Tigers incorporated Aretha Franklin's song titles into their game notes
According to TMZ , she was too emotional to hit the stage, but Questlove convinced her she was fit for the job. Foster Siggers said Franklin was "magnificent on screen" but "really low-key" in her personal life.

Franklin's music also helped serve as a springboard for a number of young guitarists who later became legends themselves. Anthony said her footprint really started during the civil rights movement. "She will forever be our Queen of Soul ".

Jose Mourinho confirms several absentees for Leicester City opener
Mourinho's assessment that United were in for a "difficult season" if he did not get his way proffers an image of an unhappy club. Maybe next season we will go to the transfer window a little more active.

Pep Guardiola acted by resting Aguero for the closing stages of the game, while Phil Foden was also provided with another opportunity from the bench in the absence of Kevin De Bruyne.

Yet Guardiola's enthusiasm for two more of his midfield maestros suggests that despite the cloud that the loss of the brilliant De Bruyne has left hanging over the Etihad, he can see a "Silva lining".

Mourinho went on to offer up his most pointed criticism yet of the English media, in a week when one leading newspaper suggested he had a big training ground bust-up with his World Cup winning midfielder Paul Pogba. "They will decide the best for the Premier League, Tottenham and us".

"When you look at [Dominic] Solanke, maybe they say he won't make it at Chelsea, but Liverpool can finish higher than Chelsea by taking that player, because Klopp likes that type of player. I never pushed him but he decide to that and he can rest a little bit more".

Two wins from two at a canter for Guardiola's boys.

The sparkling David Silva was replaced by Riyad Mahrez moments later as Pep Guardiola made his first change, and then Huddersfield defender Christoph Schindler was shown a yellow card for a hack on Jesus.
