Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden netted two goals each and David Silva the other as Manchester City strengthened their grip on second spot with a 5-0 win against Burnley at the Etihad Stadium.
Foden fired Man City ahead on 22 minutes with a shot from the edge of the area.
A quick-fire brace from Mahrez before half-time put the hosts firmly in control.
The Algerian made the score 2-0 with a clinical angled finish before adding his second from the penalty spot in first-half added time after Ben Mee was adjudged to have fouled Sergio Aguero.
It was 4-0 on 51 minutes when Foden’s reverse pass played in Bernardo Silva who crossed for David Silva to fire home from close-range.
And Foden was perfectly placed to take advantage of Gabriel Jesus’s scuffed shot as the ball fell kindly to the midfielder who slotted past Pope for goal number five.
The win puts Man City on 63 points, nine ahead of Leicester in third. Burnley are 11th on 39 points.
