Sergio Aguero scored four times as Manchester City extended their Premier League lead to 16 points with a 5-1 demolition of Leicester at the Etihad Stadium.

City were in front after only three minutes when Kevin De Bruyne’s fine cross was turned in at the far post by Raheem Sterling, but Jamie Vardy levelled after 24 minutes.

Aguero struck three minutes into the second half when De Bruyne set him up, and after 53 minutes the Belgium star made it a hat trick of assists when his sharp pass to Aguero inside the area was thumped home.

After 77 minutes Aguero completed his hat trick in style, chipping home after intercepting Schmeichel’s disastrous attempt to pass the ball out of his own area, and blasted home his fourth and City’s fifth from the edge of the box in the final seconds.

Swansea 1-0 Burnley: Ki continues Swans revival

A late strike from Ki Sung-yueng ensured Swansea City continued their excellent form at the expense of Burnley.

Swansea City continued their outstanding recent run with a 1-0 win over out-of-form Burnley at the Liberty Stadium.

Burnley started brightly and, with less than 10 minutes today, put together a threatening move that ended when Johann Gudmundsson set up Jeff Hendrick for a strike that was well blocked and then smacked a half-volley over.

Swansea brought on Andre Ayew to begin his second spell of the club but the second period followed the same cagey pattern as the first — until Ki Sung-Yeung drilled home a low strike as the game entered the final 10 minutes.
