MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini hailed his team's "complete" performance that resulted in a 5-1 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Wednesday. The result saw City leapfrog Arsenal into first place in the Premier League for the first time this season.

"We defended well and the performance from the team was complete,” Pellegrini said. “We are not thinking about the title because we have another 15 games to play. We must continue to play the same way we played here.” He added: “It was probably the best we have played away because we played a very good team who were also in a very good moment.” As for being top of the table, the Chilean said, "It is good to be top because it then depends on what we do. We have still to fight for 45 points more."

The only blight on the emphatic away victory was the hamstring injury to Sergio Aguero. "He has injured his hamstring. Now we must wait and see how serious it is,” Pellegrini said. "We have tried not to depend on one player but we will always miss Sergio because he's a top player and we hope to have him again as soon as possible." Aguero, who scored the opener in the first-half on Wednesday, will likely miss the visit of third-place Chelsea at the Etihad next Monday. Read the original story...
