Manchester City moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table thanks to a 6-0 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur at Etihad Stadium.

Jesus Navas broke the deadlock inside 14 seconds, before Sandro put the ball into his own net and Sergio Agüero made it 3-0 before the break.

The Argentina international then bagged his 10th goal of the season shortly after half-time, before Alvaro Negredo and Navas polished off the victory.

The thrashing inevitably prompted a flurry of activity on Twitter – and here are our favourite updates, in chronological order.

Wigan midfielder James Mcarthur (‏@jamesmcarthur16) has been impressed by City’s Argentina international: “Aguero is unplayable at times #joytowatch”

QPR’s Joey Barton (‏@Joey7Barton) lays into Lewis Holtby as City go 2-0 up: “What is Holtby doing, seriously? Watch his movement when Dawson closes ball down. What’s is he doing? Game over.”

And so does former Liverpool man Dietmar Hamann ‏@DietmarHamann): “What was Holtby doing for Citys 2nd goal?”

Blackpool winger Thomas Ince (‏@RealThomasInce) is getting news of the thrashing: “Wow what am I hearing…. City 3-0 up…. Aguero causing havoc”

Ex-Arsenal striker Ian Wright (@IanWright0) chimes in after City go 3-0 up: “Uh oh !!!”

Lord Sugar ‏(@Lord_Sugar) tries to see the funny side of the half-time scoreline: “Adebayor warming up. ok we are safe? Can’t wait for Ray Winston to get us the odds of Spurs win 4-3 in the ad break”

Former Arsenal man John Hartson ‏(@JohnHartson10) is shocked by Spurs’ poor performance: “How much did AVB spend in the summer, was it over £100 million waw.. His team look absolutely toothless here..”

Hamann ‏(@DietmarHamann) feels City could soon take a grip on the Premier League table: “Another demolition job at the Etihad. If they start playing half as well away from home they could still run away with the league.”

Striker Sergio Aguero (‏@aguerosergiokun) calls on the Citizens to reproduce similar displays on their travels: “Very happy for the victory, and even more for the great teamwork. This is the way to go! Now let’s do the same away from home!”
