Tottenham Hotspur seemed unable to stop the City onslaught as they helplessly saw goal after goal slip past their defences at the Etihad stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini was ecstatic with the display against AVB’s side and labelled it as a ‘perfect performance’.
"It is impossible to play better than we did today," he told reporters after the comprehensive victory. "Except for 15 minutes in the first half when Tottenham had possession of the ball and were defending well.
"After that I think we finished the first half very well and the second was incredible.
"We have very good strikers but it's the whole team not just Aguero and Negredo."
Jesus Navas opened accounts for the home side, and Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo adding to their already impressive tally with impressive goals during the match. Tottenham Hotspur’s own Sandro added to the goal tally with a fumble that saw him slip the ball past his own keeper.
This win takes City to a total of 26 goals this season and within six points of table leaders Arsenal.
