Pep Guardiola warned Manchester City's Premier League rivals that Sergio Aguero is in the best condition of his Premier League career.

Proud Manchester City manager, Pep Giardiola, has has explained the force behind the Premier League champions' ruthless 6-1 mauling of Huddersfield Town at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

"The pass was outstanding, the control by Sergio Aguero". Six minutes later Jesus scored neatly after Benjamin Mendy's bustling run before Aguero pounced on Hamer's poor handling for a third.

The visitors made a half-time change, bringing on Laurent Depoitre for Abdelhamid Sabiri, but within three minutes of the restart they were 4-1 down as David Silva curled an exquisite free kick high into the net.

City had 14 shots on target during the 90 minutes, and hat-trick hero Aguero had four of those, and it was to be Aguero's ninth Premier League hat-trick, and he is now only two behind Alan Shearer, who holds the record on 11.

Aguero came off moments later to be replaced by Leroy Sane, the substitute's blocked shot drawing an unlucky own goal from Terence Kongolo, while home-grown midfielder Phil Foden got a late cameo as he replaced Gundogan.

Though consistently prolific, City's all-time top scorer has not always been a Guardiola favourite and started just 22 league matches last term.

Such is City's strength in depth, Guardiola was able to leave Kyle Walker, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling on the bench.

David Silva had set the tone with a majestic opening half-hour, torturing the Huddersfield defence and allowing the City supporters to forget about the absence of De Bruyne.

Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring his hat-trick and Manchester City's fifth. Aguero and Jesus dropped deep to pull Huddersfield apart, John Stones and Aymeric Laporte spent more time in the opposition third than their own while both Silva stars picked and probed all afternoon.

After a frustrating opening 25 minutes Aguero commenced the scoring with a sumptuous chip which opened the floodgates.

With eight goals in two games, City looks ready to have another incredible season.

Philip Billing's long throw-in was helped on by Steve Mounie and Jon Gorenc Stankovic responded quickly, forcing the ball in from six yards.
