Sarri rejects Guardiola's handshake after Chelsea's big defeat at Manchester City

Ilkay Gundogan added the fourth from 20 yards on 25 minutes before Aguero claimed his 11th top-flight treble for City from the spot, to equal Alan Shearer's Premier League record.

Salah's second half goal was teed up by Roberto Firmino, who eschewed a close range shot, electing to give Salah a simpler chance.

Guardiola fell to the floor in exasperation when Aguero somehow side-footed wide with his easiest chance of the game moments later.

"We can not forget Chelsea demand a lot of our pressing as they have a lot of quality, and Sergio sometimes was a little bit exhausted to do that, but of course in front of goal he is a special player".

"One week ago we played Newcastle, you remember?"

"I have said many times, Sergio scores every single season a lot of goals", said Guardiola.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hailed striker Sergio Aguero's ability to consistently deliver on the biggest occasions. Manchester City play fantastic football and I saw an extraordinary team.

That was after City had scored an opening goal inside the first five minutes of the game for the third Premier League game in their last four, having done the same against both Newcastle United and Arsenal. Arsenal at home and Chelsea at home and Everton away is a tough, tough week and we did incredibly.

But the Argentine atoned in brilliant fashion, unleashing a right-footed strike from 30 yards out which flew past keeper Kepa and into the top corner of the net.

Aguero gets his hat-trick.

Man-of-the-match Aguero, speaking about a glaring first-half miss, told Sky Sports: "I don't know, sometimes it happens".

"The important thing after that is to keep the ball but more important is to win".
