Raheem Sterling scored a perfect hat-trick as Manchester City beat Norwich City 4-0 to extend their lead to 12 points.
Bernardo Silva hit a post during an open start at Carrow Road, before Grant Hanley’s header also struck the woodwork at the other end.
Sterling broke the deadlock just after the half-hour, curling in his eighth league goal of the season with his right foot.
It was 2-0 three minutes into the second half as Phil Foden scrambled the ball over the line at the second attempt.
Milot Rashica worked Ederson on the counter as Norwich looked for a way back before Ruben Dias teed up Sterling to head in with 20 minutes remaining.
The winger claimed his fifth Premier League hat-trick by tapping in from close range with his left foot after his initial penalty had been saved by Angus Gunn in the final minute.
City are 15 league matches without defeat on 63 points.
Norwich stay 18th, one point adrift of Newcastle United and safety, having played two matches more.
