- City have scored five or more goals in a single Premier League game for the 12th time under Pep Guardiola - no other team has done so more than six times since the Spaniard's arrival.

Raheem Sterling declared Manchester City's 6-1 Premier League victory over Southampton an important one after "brilliant" title rivals Liverpool drew with Arsenal a day earlier.

"Last year was hard for me for many things".

City scored a fourth in first-half stoppage time after Aguero had robbed Cedric Soares as the Southampton defender was attempting to usher the ball out for a corner.

City won 32 of their 38 games last season, scoring a record 106 goals and amassing a record 100 points.

Sergio Aguero doubled their lead six minutes later before David Silva made it three with yet another six minute interval.

It appeared City were capable of scoring nearly at will and a slick move saw them make it three in the 18th minute. First Sterling, then Sane, then Silva and then Aguero beat three men each in a game of keep-ball before it fell to Kyle Walker, whose effort is wide of the post.

The win saw them move into second place above Liverpool and just behind Manchester City on the Premier League log.

"We played with the ball so good but not without 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 did in the 67th minute when he latched onto Aguero's perfectly-weighted pass to score his second goal of the afternoon.
