Sergio Aguero was the hat-trick hero

But after a frantic ten minutes, the Gunners were level as Laurent Koscielny replicated Aguero’s opener with a diving header of his own.

And just as the visitors began to grow into the game, Aguero rounded off a beautiful City move on the stroke of half-time to give his side the lead.

He completed his treble of tap-ins with a rather fortuitous third – Leno palmed the ball into his midriff and watched in agony as the ball just trickled over the line.

The comfortable victory moves Peo Guardiola’s men to within two points of Liverpool ahead of the Reds’ tricky trip to West Ham on Monday night.
