Reuters: Striker Sergio Aguero scored twice to lead Manchester City to a comfortable 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday that boosted their hopes of regaining the Premier League title.

Midfielder Fabian Delph put City ahead after 22 minutes, his speculative effort squirming under keeper Wayne Hennessey.

Aguero doubled the lead just before halftime when his shot from 30 metres hit defender Scott Dann’s head and flew past the helpless Hennessey.

The Argentine struck again from close range after 68 minutes following a fine one-touch passing move and a perfect cross from Kevin De Bruyne before David Silva completed the rout.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was pleased with his players after they briefly went back to the summit before Leicester City reclaimed top spot by one point with a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa in the late game.
