Manchester City manager hails Sergio Aguero after four second-half goals against Leicester City

Pep Guardiola has hailed Sergio Aguero as an "authentic legend" of Manchester City after his four second-half goals continued the club's emphatic march towards the Premier League title with a 5-1 thrashing of Leicester. Guardiola believes the win was “one of the best” performances his players have produced since he took over at City but urged them not to let their intensity drop.

Raheem Sterling had given Manchester City an early lead yesterday but Leicester went into the break on level terms thanks to Jamie Vardy's equalizer. However, Aguero took centre stage with a finishing masterclass to take his tally in Manchester City's last seven home games to 14 goals as Guardiola's side moved 16 points clear.
