Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick in Manchester City's win over Arsenal

The Argentinean has not stopped scoring in the Premier League since arriving from Atletico Madrid back in 2011 and his stunning performance today against Arsenal was further proof, if it were needed, that he remains at the very top of his game.

Manchester City host Arsenal in a crucial fixture that is significant in the title race as well as the top four, as both sides look to collect three points.

Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne believes that the Premier League champions are not on the same level that they were a year ago as they continue to fight Liverpool in a fierce title race.

Yet there is a feeling Guardiola doesn't know his best defence - his experimental team selection was evidence of that.

In midfield, Guardiola is now able to call upon Kevin De Bruyne after his return to fitness, and the defeat to Newcastle was the first time this season he's been able to field his first-choice trio of De Bruyne, David Silva and Fernandinho - not that it helped. I think for him it's easy to adapt with us.

According to him, the North London side might have secured just addition in this winter window, work is still ongoing by the club to endure that more deals are sealed in the coming summer window.

After hosting Arsenal, they travel to Everton on Wednesday before playing Chelsea at home four days later.

The result leaves Arsenal sixth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

During the same course, they have played these teams a combined total of twenty-three times, drawing seven, and losing sixteen! But getting a positive result at City on his own terms would be something else entirely. We will go for it with all we have.

"But after the 2-1, in the second half they showed their superiority". But the pressure got to Jurgen Klopp's men, who could only manage a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Anfield. "That is what we tried a year ago". If City keep close within the last five games, I think they will win it.

Emery did let on more, saying: "Usually we want to have more possession than the opposition but, against City, maybe it is not possible because they impose usually the possession first and the positioning".

"But this detail is a big detail!"
