The English forward was at the top of his game providing two assists and scoring two goals on an incredible night for the current title holders.

Despite turning 33 earlier this year, Fernandinho has started all of City's 14 Premier and Champions League matches this season, while the more creative talents of David Silva, Leroy Sane, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling have had to live with Guardiola's rotation policy.

He said: 'I get tight calves with my age.

Kyle Walker has denied Manchester City's players are affected by the supporters' inability to warm to the Champions League even though he admits it is far tougher for them to play in more hostile atmospheres away from home than it is for visiting teams to the Etihad.

It was Max Meyer who had the visitors' best chance, but the German worldwide, who is still looking for his first Palace goal since a summer move from Schalke, fired over when well-placed on the edge of the area.

Manchester City have a chance to put one foot in the last 16 of the Champions League with a win over Shakhtar Donetsk.

Speaking after the game, the German winger said that "the whole team was really strong" in what was the biggest scoreline of the current Premier League season. "We spoke about that in training and said try to score goals".

Sterling laid on the second for Aguero six minutes later and it wasn't long before it was 3-0, Sterling chipping over a cross and the ball falling invitingly for Silva to lash home.

It was the Argentine's 150th league goal for City, a landmark that moved him level with Michael Owen in eighth place on the Premier League's all-time goalscoring list.

Guardiola's players punished nearly every mistake made in the opening stages by a beleaguered Southampton side as they led 3-0 after just 18 minutes. Junior Moraes, who has 14 goals this term, should lead the line.

Guardiola's side have now won eight of their past nine matches across all competitions, although Ings' penalty was the first league goal they have conceded in six games.

Belgium global De Bruyne was ruled out with another knee injury, but that had little impact as City blew poor Saints away, Aguero taking his tally to 150 goals in 217 league appearances, while the excellent Sterling got himself a brace. A factor which could've hurt them, especially with James Ward-Prowse on set-piece duty.

Sane completed the rout with a sixth in the closing minutes, picking out the bottom-left corner from the edge of the box after being found on the break by Sterling.
