Aguero grabs four in big City win

Sergio Aguero's four-goal second-half haul saw Manchester City demolish Leicester City 5-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League.  Raheem Sterling put the hosts ahead after barely two minutes from Kevin De Bruyne's delightful cross, but their dominance counted for little once Jamie Vardy intercepted Nicolas Otamendi's wayward pass and slotted in an equaliser.  The second half began just like the first when Aguero struck from close-range within three minutes and soon added another, both from De Bruyne deliveries, before sealing his hat-trick from a Kasper Schmeichel error and blasting in a late fourth off the crossbar.  Man City's 16-point end-of-day lead at the top of the Premier League is the largest of any side since April 2013, while Leicester have now gone five games without a win and are only a point ahead of ninth-placed Everton
