Sizzling City put seven past Stoke

Manchester City were in red-hot form as they thrashed Stoke 7-2 at the Etihad Stadium to go two points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

There were six different goalscorers for the hosts, with Gabriel Jesus the only player to score twice, and his 17th-minute opener was swiftly followed by Raheem Sterling's strike (19) before David Silva netted in the 27th minute to see Man City race into a 3-0 lead.

Stoke fought back with two goals either side of half-time as Mame Biram Diouf (44) scored ahead of the break, and the striker was involved again as a Kyle Walker own goal (47) made it 3-2 shortly after the restart.  But that brief blip stirred Manchester City back into action as they netted their next three goals in just six minutes, Jesus adding his second (56) before Fernandinho (60) and Leroy Sane (62) got their names on the scoresheet, with Bernardo Silva (79) completing the rout.
