Liverpool strolled to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Bournemouth which saw them return to the top of the Premier League and open up a three-point lead over Manchester City.

Sunday's 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea followed a midweek win at Everton which had seen Guardiola's side go top for the first time since 15 December.

"One week ago we played Newcastle, you remember?"

Pep Guardiola's side struck four times inside the opening 25 minutes and continued to attack a beleaguered Chelsea throughout as Maurizio Sarri's humiliated team shipped six goals in a Premier League match for the first time in their history. "But pressure is society stuff, there are many, many troubles around the world to think you have pressure".

Talk about Carragher killing two birds with one stone!

"After three games in a week - tough games against Arsenal and at Goodison Park - playing the way we played with this intensity and patience to find spaces in the right moments, the players were outstanding. I said thank you to them for what they have done".

The Argentinian could have even had more - hitting the crossbar and missing a golden opportunity from two yards early on that had his manager on his knees in frustration.

Man-of-the-match Aguero, speaking about a glaring first-half miss, told Sky Sports: "I don't know, sometimes it happens".

The Argentine striker's afternoon got much better soon after, however, curving home a sublime 25-yard effort before poaching a third to become City's all-time leading league scorer.

On equalling Alan Shearer's record of 11 Premier League hat-tricks, he added: "I have to continue the same way, but it's important to win".
