Man City finally returned to winning ways last night with an emphatic return to their best by smashing Burnley 4-1.
Failure to win could have put an end to the title race before new year, but City bounced back from the disappointment of last week's results to hammer the Clarets.
City dominated from start to finish but were only one goal ahead at half-time, courtesy of Gabriel Jesus' stunning curled strike.
The Blues' dominance continued in the second-half, however, and another goal from Jesus as well as a thunderous strike from distance by Rodri and a fine solo effort by Riyad Mahrez rounded off the win, before Robbie Brady added a late consolation.
Man City are considering Inter striker Lautaro Martinez as Sergio Aguero’s replacement, according to reports.
The highly rated Argentine is enjoying a brilliant season at the San Siro and his goals have helped fire Inter to the top of Serie A.
Martinez has bagged 13 goals in 19 games in the league and Champions League, including strikes against Barcelona, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund.
His form has earned him admirers from many of Europe’s big clubs and City are the latest according to Sky Italy, cited by the Daily Mail.
It’s claimed the 22-year-old is seen as ‘the ideal man’ to to take over from the legendary Aguero, whose contract expires in 2021.
Liverpool's lead over City has been cut to eight points but they can extend it again if they win the Merseyside derby tonight.
