Stoke 1-4 Manchester City: Sergio Aguero and Nolito at the double to maintain Pep Guardiola’s perfect start

20 Aug

Sergio Aguero and Nolito both scored twice as Manchester City romped past Stoke on Saturday lunchtime to extend their winning start to the season.


Aguero hit a first-half double at the Bet365 Stadium – his fifth and sixth goals in just three games – to put City 2-0 ahead at half-time.

Bojan reduced the deficit for Stoke shortly after the break, but substitute Nolito netted in quick succession late on to put the match out of sight.

It is a third win for City in all competitions under Pep Guardiola, who again left Joe Hart out of his starting line-up.

Having faced Sunderland at home in their Premier League opener and Steaua Bucharest in a Champions League qualifier in midweek, this represented the toughest test of Guardiola’s City career to date.

But they came through it with flying colours, with Aguero continuing his red-hot start to the campaign.
