Raheem Sterling is no longer scared - Man City boss Pep Guardiola

Raheem Sterling is no longer scared - Man City boss Pep Guardiola

The Argentine keeps scoring for City and the one he netted against Southampton was his 150th Premier League goal for Manchester City.

Southampton, who had kept back-to-back clean sheets prior to today, were given a route back into the match half an hour in as Ederson raced off his line and wiped out Liverpool loanee Ings, leaving referee Lee Mason with no choice but to point to the penalty spot.

It may be harsh to single out one Southampton defender given they were all dire, but Hoedt arguably endured the most hard outing, haplessly giving City the lead.

Sterling, 23, has now been directly involved in 39 Premier League goals since the start of last season, only Mohamed Salah (50) has been involved in more.

"I always enjoy myself".

Sergio AGUERO scored in Manchester City's 6-1 win against Southampton.

"I don't think we were confronted with lots of goal chances and we kept them at bay pretty well, but they were clinical".

In the other Sunday game, Chelsea thumped Crystal Palace 3-1 in the London Derby at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea.

Southampton, who have won only once in the Premier League all season, were overwhelmed.

Five minutes had gone when Aguero orchestrated an attack on the edge of the Southampton area, David Siva then moving the ball on to the overlapping Sane, whose cross was turned into his own goal by Saints' Wesley Hoedt.

Guardiola was asked if Sterling can now be considered amongst the world's best players, but replied that the England worldwide still has work to do to be ranked as such.

While numerous bottom sides could be considered the "usual suspects", the sight of Sean Dyche's Burnley - who finished seventh with 54 points last season - is a little surprising.

Roy Hodgson's Palace, beaten in its previous five league games, equalised early in the second half when James McArthur sent Andros Townsend racing clear and he slammed a ferocious right-foot shot into the net.

Chelsea reacted by bringing on dangerman Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic, and within minutes, were back in front.

"We played with the ball so good but not without the ball".
