Manchester City thump Southampton to return to top of Premier League

"I can score a hat-trick so it was not the ideal day but we will take the three points", said Morata.

Morata has now scored four in his last four Premier League games after just two goals in his previous 20 domestic matches, and his return to form could be the final ingredient Sarri's side need to mount a serious title challenge.

"When you have a bad period, it takes long to recover".

When Manchester City's attack is humming, the side is almost impossible the take down. It's scary to think that Sterling may just be scratching the surface of his ability.

Pep Guardiola said managing in England is a "dream come true" as he was honoured by the Football Writers' Association fresh from a 6-1 Premier League victory against Southampton.

Raheem Sterling hopes to give Manchester City fans plenty more reason to chant his name after starring in Sunday's demolition of Southampton.

"I have the feeling he is now enjoying scoring goals and making assists".

City restored their three-goal advantage before the interval, however, thanks to Sterling's simple finish past McCarthy after Aguero kept the ball in play and squared it to his teammate, though the Englishman required a couple of bites of the cherry after miscuing his initial shot.

Chelsea, one of three unbeaten sides, have 27 points from 11 games - two fewer than leaders Manchester City - and lead Liverpool in third on goal difference.

Sane, Sterling, Silva and Aguero can be seen passing the ball amongst themselves inside the Southampton area before, eventually, losing it.

It probably says more about Southampton's defending than it does about City's attack, though, to be fair.

In truth, one of them probably should have just had a shot but you can't blame them for wanting to score the ideal goal.

"The first season, when the ball arrived in the box he was scared, he was looking, who is the guy I am going to pass the ball?"

Southampton improved at the start of the second half, with James Ward-Prowse and Ings - via wicked deflection off Fernandinho - forcing Ederson to make fine stops.

Sterling struck twice either side of the break and then passed up a hat-trick chance by teeing up Sane's late sixth.
