MAN CITY TOOK full advantage of rivals United’s loss by beating Burnley 3-0, with Sergio Aguero equalling Eric Brook’s all-time club scoring record of 177 goals.

Defending champions Chelsea closed to within four points of second-place United by beating Watford 4-2 while Tottenham Hotspur can draw level with Mourinho’s men if they beat Liverpool on Sunday.

Guardiola’s City have won their last seven league games, scoring 20 goals in their last four home games.

Argentina striker Aguero netted from the spot on the half hour after Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope was contentiously adjudged to have fouled Bernardo Silva.

Second-half goals from Nicolas Otamendi and Leroy Sane completed victory.

Leicester City began life after Craig Shakespeare with a 2-1 win at Swansea City.

Caretaker manager Michael Appleton saw Leicester go 2-0 up through a Federico Fernandez own goal and a Shinji Okazaki effort before Alfie Mawson replied for Swansea.

Junior Stanislas teed up Andrew Surman and scored a penalty to give Bournemouth a 2-1 victory at Stoke City, who reduced the deficit through Mame Biram Diouf.

Mikel Merino’s late header earned Newcastle United a 1-0 home win over bottom club Crystal Palace, who stunned Chelsea 2-1 last weekend.

Southampton host West Bromwich Albion in the late game.
