Raheem Sterling wants to keep fans singing at the Etihad

He said: "It is finished, the period where a striker says, "OK, the ball is going to come, I am going to score and then take a coffee when the opponent has the ball".

The champions were at their sumptuous best at times today, opening up a 3-0 lead within just 18 minutes of the kickoff. "It is great times at the moment".

Southampton had the minor consolation of becoming the first team in 630 minutes to score against City but the leaders' form is ominous for the rest of the division.

That's the question no doubt circulating around anxious dressing rooms as Manchester City continue to set a rampant pace atop the Premier League ladder.

Southampton have won just once in the league this season but have drawn their last two games 0-0.

Sterling reached 50 goals for the club after scoring a brace that helped City to a dominant triumph, with Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Leroy Sane also among the goals.

It was proving a nightmare return for Southampton manager Mark Hughes, who was in charge at City between 2008-09, as his side conceded a third goal when Sterling supplied a cross and David Silva lashed the ball home.

Sterling struck again to make it 5-1, drilling into the bottom corner after being slipped in by the unselfish Aguero and Sane completed the rout in stoppage time.

"It was always like this, I don't want to be arrogant, but with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, we were always the team with less [goals] conceded", he said.

"He's a guy who gave us a lot, but he's still a young player, he can improve, he can be more calm inside the box, but he has desire and that's why he's extended his contract here for many years".

Palace, beaten in its previous five league matches, levelled early in the second half when James McArthur sent Andros Townsend racing clear and he slammed a ferocious right-foot shot into the net.

Jesus ruthlessly dispatched the penalty but will perhaps blame his failure to convert a glorious one-on-one opportunity soon after on a sudden pang of sympathy for the visitors.

Chelsea grabbed three points of their own as they joined City and Liverpool unbeaten after 11 matches.

"In the first 15 minutes of the second half we were not compact".
