Man City's Sergio Aguero will 'die scoring goals' - Pep Guardiola

"The ball-boy was slow, everybody was slow", Guardiola said. Manchester City's 5-0 win wasn't their biggest scoreline of the season, but it did equal the second largest the team have tallied thus far.

It is a very different story for lowly Palace, who became the first side in English Football League history to lose their first six games of the season without scoring.

"Like Gabriel Jesus, we believe he can improve, but we are so happy with him". But I'm not telling the people not to be excited.

Palace remain pointless and goalless in the league and there is a real possibility of that run stretching to eight games, with a trip to the other side of Manchester next week, before Chelsea visit Selhurst Park after the global break.

Palace had frustrated City for much of the first half until Leroy Sane broke the deadlock in the 44th minute.

By the time substitute Fabian Delph curled home a fifth late on, the fact the game had so almost been goalless at half-time seemed ridiculous.

The German had put two goals past West Bromwich Albion in the Carabao Cup just days earlier, and Pep Guardiola allowed the 21-year-old to continue his good form by starting him again versus Roy Hodgson's side.

"We have to accept we've been given a headache, and now we have to find the aspirins to ease the headache". Palace are missing a number of important players, including Wilfried Zaha.

"Not well, we think it's a form of ligament damage", Hodgson said when asked about Benteke's injury in his post-match press conference.

The only blot on City's day was left-back Benjamin Mendy limping off in the 29th minute with a knee injury that will be fully assessed on Sunday.

However, we are backing Leroy Sane as our prediction at the best odds of 7/4 at Paddypower.

"After the break Sterling soon had his fourth of the season after great work from Sane to lay the ball across for the England forward, before netting another shortly after, Aguero this time providing the assist".

The highlight of Sane's display was arguably his powerful, whipped left-wing cross for Aguero's 176th City goal, leaving the striker one goal behind Eric Brook's all-time record. "Always the right tempo and moment".

"This is the Premier League", he said. Against Southampton though, they already looked slightly less toothless, although they have now gone five games without scoring.

Raheem Sterling scored twice as Sky Bet's odds-on title favourites Manchester City maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a comfortable 5-0 victory over struggling Crystal Palace.
