Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said striker Sergio Aguero "deserves all the credit" for his side's 5-1 win over Leicester after scoring four second-half goals.
The Argentina international took his tally to 13 in 10 games in 2018 with another display of deadly finishing, aided by a brilliant performance by Kevin de Bruyne, who set up his side's first three goals
Guardiola, who saw his side win their 13th home game of the season to move 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, said: "Sergio fought hard and he is so important to us.
"We played quite similar to the way we played in our draw against Burnley last week, but the difference here was we took our chances."
Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez, who almost joined Manchester City at the end of January, received an ovation from both sets of fans as he returned from his self-imposed exile to make an appearance as a second-half substitute.
Whether Mahrez's move to Etihad Stadium is resurrected in the summer remains to be seen, but this display from Pep Guardiola's side showed that they can cope pretty well without him - especially with De Bruyne and Aguero in this form.
