It was Gabriel Jesus who opened the scoring at London Stadium with a tidy finish at the near post following an outstanding run from Kyle Walker, but it was Sterling who took centre stage with three goals, while substitute Sergio Agüero also netted a late penalty.

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba was the last player to accomplish the feat in 2010.
