Winger scores one goal and sets up another as champions go top after Brighton beaten for fifth consecutive win

Raheem Sterling scored one goal and assisted another as Manchester City made it four consecutive Premier League wins, beating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0, to go top.

After Sergio Aguero had an overhead kick blocked on four minutes, Sterling opened the scoring just before the half-hour.

The winger finished off Leroy Sane's cross after a quick counter-attack. 

Aguero got his fifth PL goal of the season net with 25 minutes remaining, after a brilliant one-two with Sterling. 

The result sent Man City top on 19 points, after Chelsea and Liverpool drew 1-1 later in the day.

Brighton slip to 14th with five points.
