City were most football fans' favourites for the title before the season started and they're showing exactly why that was the case.

A different type of challenge awaits today and one that should not be underestimated.

Manchester City continued their surging run in the English Premier League with a 7-2 hammering of Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium.

According to Pep Guardiola, Man City put in their best performance since he arrived at the club on Saturday against Stoke. He loves to be here.

Gabriel Jesus grabbed a brace, while Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Fernandinho, David Silva and Bernardo Silva all got themselves on the scoresheet.

The good news for Pep Guardiola is that star striker Sergio Aguero is back in training after suffering a rib injury in a car crash.

"I am very happy to have the opportunity to play this kind of game".

Unsurprisingly, many praised Palace manager Roy Hodgson after the final whistle.

Leaving Sane to finish from the corner of the six yard box. They started from the back and literally passed their way to scoring.

Guardiola is reluctant however to burden De Bruyne, 26, with comparisons with Messi, who has won the Ballon d'Or four times.

He said: "Kevin didn't score but he is so dynamic and understands the game".

"I would have City 10 points clear of everyone at the end of the season", Cascarino told the Weekend Spots Breakfast.

"He's intelligent, he's a fighter, he's a competitor, he's a winner, he's a guy who has the quality to keep the ball, to play".

There was a similarity between them in the sense that both owed much to De Bruyne's hunger and determination to win the ball in the first place.

Bernardo Silva is full of high praise for his Manchester City teammate, Kevin De Bruyne, who he has hailed as one of the best in the world. Guardiola knows how important his No.17 will be in the Champions League clash with Napoli here on Tuesday, and wisely decided to give him a rest.
