Raheem Sterling has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, with the champions winning 6-1 at Southampton on Sunday, to return to the top of the Premier League.
Sergio Aguero, 150th in the league, David Silva and Leroy Sane are also included in the line-up, with Pep Guardiola's side continuing to advance to the top of the table.
"We played well, especially the ball," Guardiola told the BBC, saying there was a lot of interest from England international Sterling.
"He is now a teenager since he was the first time I met with the club … he is 23 and he can be a better player."
Southampton have little motivation to become the first team to score 630 goals in City, but the form of leaders is unmatched by the rest of the team.
City have scored the least goals they made during the tournament, scoring 106 goals last season, and have started a bad start to the Etihad this season in just 18 minutes.
In the 5th minute, Aguero fired the Southampton defender, and David Siva picked up a Sane, who sacked Saints and Wesley Hoedt.
After three minutes, City gave Bernard Silva the lead after Sterling struck, while the England striker struck a shot by Aguero.
It was the Argentine's 150th goal for City, the first goal for Michael Owen in the 8th place in the Premier League.
It seemed that City had the ability to score, and did three minutes on the 18th.
Once again, Sterling was heavily involved, accepting Bernardo Silva's record and playing for Sane, but David Silva joined the game.
Southampton boss Mark Hughes, whose future has been a long-awaited success since winning four of his last 19 league games, has been frustrated over his side's defense.
"I was poor during the opening, and you're going to have to return to a big City," said Hughes. "We are small and simple and do not deal with one-on-one situations."
Southampton, however, the goal back after half an hour, and he became the first English goal past Newcastle City since the beginning of September at the Etihad.
It was a rare mistake by goalkeeper Ederson, who led the Saints to a goal, but Brazil were rarely the feet of Danny Ings and turned to the attacker, who had shot seriously at the home.
Nevertheless, it's not surprising that Southampton might be showing the same thing, and City finished in the first half.
David Silva appeared to be out of the game, but Aguero was fantastic to return to Sterling, before sacking, but Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is from six yards.
Southampton had been better off at the start of the second half, with James Ward-Prowse and Ings pushing Fernandinho, leaving Edison in charge of suspension.
But City continued to be threatening, with a figure of about five that had a left foot left-hand side on the side of the area which hit the bar a few hours later.
Sterling scored in the 67th minute for Aguero, who netted his second goal.
Sane presented an amazing individual and group performance during his lifetime as he left the left foot of the left leg at 18 meters after receiving help from Sterling.
