Manchester City crushed hopeless Crystal Palace, 5-0, on Saturday afternoon as the team won their fourth straight match. Palace are still the only English Premier League team not to score a goal this term and the Eagles are pointless through six matches. Manchester City’s 5-0 win wasn’t their biggest scoreline of the season, but it did equal the second largest the team have tallied thus far.
Manchester City have outscored their opponents 18-1 in their last four Premier League matches, and the team have scored five or more goals in each of their last three fixtures.
Raheem Sterling scored twice for Manchester City as Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Fabian Delph also found themselves on the score sheet.
Following the game supporters, Manchester City players and pundits took to Twitter to comment on the 5-0 scoreline.

Pep’s City are the first side to score 5+ goals in 3 consecutive top-flight games in the same season since Blackburn in 58-59. [Opta] #Pep

Is it too early to say Pep Guardiola has finally unlocked Man City? Yeah, you'd be reminded about last season's excellent Aug+Sept run.

Manchester City will play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Pep Guardiola’s side will face their toughest test yet as they play last season’s champions.
