City welcome local rivals Manchester United to the Etihad in the Premier League on Sunday and will do so having netted a frightening 21 goals for the concession of just one in their last five home matches in all competitions.

Aguero was booked after handling the ball and then bizarrely smashing it into the crowd in frustration and Sterling had a penalty claim dismissed but the flow was only briefly interrupted.

Pep Guardiola said Raheem Sterling can achieve "whatever he wants" in football but stopped short of placing him among the world's best players after he scored his 50th goal for Manchester City. "It is great times at the moment".

Sterling laid on the second for Aguero six minutes later and it wasn't long before it was 3-0, Sterling chipping over a cross and the ball falling invitingly for Silva to lash home.

Sterling unselfishly squared for Sane in second-half stoppage time to allow the Germany worldwide to score City's sixth, and he said the winger often does the same in return.

Guardiola, whose champion side host Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday, believes that good attacks are built when the whole team defends well. We were ruthless and took our chances. The game was not over. We were creating a lot of chances but when Southampton won a lot of second balls.

Palace, beaten in its previous five league matches, levelled early in the second half when James McArthur sent Andros Townsend racing clear and he slammed a ferocious right-foot shot into the net.

Sterling did not dive or call for a penalty, but thanks to Kassai, Gabriel Jesus was able to convert from the spot and put City two goals to the good.

Pedro added the third goal from a left-wing cross by another Spaniard, Marcos Alonso, in the 72nd as Chelsea moved on to the same points tally as Liverpool, two behind City.
