City were in exuberant mood and added a third before the break when the excellent Gabriel Jesus latched on to Aguero's cute pass to stroke home in the 38th minute.

Manchester City thumped Watford 6-0 to move top of the Premier League on Saturday as Crystal Palace suffered their fifth successive loss in a 1-0 defeat by Southampton.

Aguero's early double put City in control.

The 29-year-old has 175 goals since joining City in 2011, with Eric Brook holding the club record of 177 goals. "It will be soon", he said. We can't make mistakes. That's good for him. "He has this power to do this and we need his goals".

Raheem Sterling added a sixth from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Christian Kabasele late on.

"In the career of an athlete, there are maybe only 10 per cent or 15 per cent of the happiest moments, and 85 per cent of other moments, so you lose more than you win". Four of the players mentioned so far are the big reason why this the squad is scoring in droves: Aguero, Jesus, Silva and De Bruyne. A late goal by Sevilla last Wednesday kept the Reds from taking home three points in the Champions League.

City have 13 points from five games - three more than rivals Manchester United who play Everton on Sunday but City now have a superior goal difference on their Manchester rivals. The Reds took 35 shots (nine on goal) in the draw, a whopping 30 more than Burnley attempted.

"I will show my players their mistakes and how to learn from them. It is clear that the referee made mistakes", he said.
