EPL 2018 Sergio Aguero hat-trick steers Manchester City to thumping win

Kyle Walker wants to win more and more at Manchester City

"We have neighbours who, for 15 or 20 years, have always won".

David Silva curled home a stunning free kick shortly after the interval, while Aguero completing his third hat-trick of the calendar year with 15 minutes remaining.

Sergio Aguero netted his 13th hat-trick for Manchester City as the champions made light of the absence of the injured Kevin De Bruyne to thrash Huddersfield 6-1 and move joint top of the English Premier League.

The Terriers held City to a goalless draw in Manchester in May, but this time around the Citizens had no problems in front of goal.

Jesus and David Silva also scored with a late Terence Kongolo own goal meaning Huddersfield have now shipped nine goals in two games.

"Since he came back, I saw it from the first second, from the first minute, wow, he came back flawless", Guardiola told Sky Sports.

Costing £5.5m, Fraser is perhaps a more expensive option to other creative players at lower-end Premier League sides to consider but he certainly has the form to make his outlay worthwhile - as he has been directly involved in six goals in his last six matches at the Vitality Stadium (four goals, two assists).

No matter - City restored a three-goal advantage just three minutes into the second half with a wonderful free-kick from 20 yards from David Silva that left Hamer flat-footed - the ideal way to mark his 250th Premier League appearance. "I never saw him like this since I was here, he is in an incredible condition with the ball and without the ball", Guardiola said.

But Huddersfield gained a foothold in the game as the quarter of an hour approached, seeing a bit more of the ball before another City attack brought a Jesus header that was comfortably handled by Hamer.

"He is one of the best, best, best strikers in the world without a doubt", Giardiola hailed.

Eric Bailly was particularly exposed and, having conceded a needless corner that led to Duffy's first EPL goal he blundered in to foul Pascal Gross, who put away the penalty via David de Gea's leg on the stroke of halftime.

"We made mistakes we shouldn't make".

"(I'm pleased) with the three points, the way we played", Guardiola said. Burnley equalized three minutes later when James Tarkowski headed in from close range.

Watford beat Brighton 2-0 in its first league game.
