Man City 5-1 Leicester player ratings, stats and reaction: Aguero hits quadruple as Man City increase gap over Man United to 16 points

Manchester City had Sergio Aguero to thank this evening, as the Argentine scored four in his side’s 5-1 win over Leicester to help them go 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Sterling opened the scoring in the third minute following a brilliant cross from Kevin De Bruyne, before Jamie Vardy equalised for the away side.

Aguero then bagged his first just after half time, with the former Atletico Madrid ace scoring his second just a few minutes later to put the home side in full control.

The Argentina international then collected his hat-trick in 77th minute, before firing home his fourth in added time to complete the rout for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Following the result, City are now a massive 16 points clear of their rivals Man United at the top of the Premier League.
