When Manchester City's attack is humming, the side is almost impossible the take down.
Belgium worldwide De Bruyne was ruled out with another knee injury, but that had little impact as City blew poor Saints away, Aguero taking his tally to 150 goals in 217 league appearances, while the excellent Sterling got himself a brace.
"It's a big strength for us that anyone can score the goals, and we have that hunger".
Sterling's comments could be seen as a further sign of encouragement that he is close to agreeing a new contract with the defending champions, who are two points clear of Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.More news: Priyanka Chopra Celebrates Bachelorette Party in Amsterdam!
"Last year was hard for me for many things".
"I don't think we were confronted with lots of goal chances and we kept them at bay pretty well, but they were clinical". I have the feeling he is now enjoying scoring goals and making assists and be important in winning games.
Ings's penalty - after Ederson hauled him down - saw Saints pull one back, but Sterling restored the three-goal cushion just before the interval, slotting home after tireless work from Aguero.
He now has contributed to the joint-most goals in the league this season, having scored six goals and assisted five, giving him 11 goal contributions in total.

That goal set the tone for the Saints, who were totally outclassed throughout.
"The first season, when the ball arrived in the box he was scared, he was looking, who is the guy I am going to pass the ball?"
Sane was one of five different goalscorers for City on Sunday, and he has now scored three times in just four starts.
Sterling bagged his second of the game on 67 minutes to cap a fine individual display from the England attacker.
Sterling struck again to make it 5-1, drilling into the bottom corner after being slipped in by the unselfish Aguero and Sane completed the rout in stoppage time.More news: Girl Scouts CEO says hearts 'broken' over crash
