"I'm really happy personally because the goals are helping the team to win and obviously that's very important", Aguero said.

The most important thing from my point of view is he is so calm.

It did not take the home side long to establish an advantage, Sterling tapping in from close range following an exquisite De Bruyne cross between Schmeichel and his defenders.

That took his spending for the blue half of Manchester to over £400 million in under two years at the club and despite all of the unbelievable football City are playing week in, week out, fans still believe City are buying the title.

Leicester City are sitting eighth on 35 points, but could up to seventh and replace Burnley of The Clarets fail to beat Swansea City in their game.

The Englishman has now scored more goals against Guardiola's City ahead of Lionel Messi (four) and Eden Hazard (three).

De Bruyne was the inspiration yet again, playing an intricate pass into the area and Aguero fired past Schmeichel, despite the goalkeeper getting a hand to it.

Players like Kevin de Bruyne, Sterling and Sergio Aguero have played virtually non-stop for weeks on end now and that may start to tell when it comes to making a vital sprint or putting in a big effort late in the game. De Bruyne curled in a risky low ball behind the defense and Sterling turned it home.

Adding to Mahrez's anger is that other heroes of Leicester's title-winning triumph - N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater - have been allowed to leave the club and join Chelsea with far less resistance.

De Bruyne had a hat-trick of assists, including the pass of the match in the second half. The visibly inspired Aguero then directed the global traffic onto himself with a potential goal of the season to register his fourth of the game and the Citizen's fifth in total.

The quadruple also brought the Argentine level on goals with Mohamed Salah on 21 in the race for the Premier League golden boot, two behind Harry Kane.

It is still doubtful whether Mahrez will feature in this weekend's clash at the Etihad though it goes without say, that having Mahrez back must be a sigh of relief for many Leicester fans. For us, we've got a massive game to look forward to now, we have to get back on track, get a win soon, so for us that's got to be our focus.
