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.
