Premier League: Stoke City Vs Manchester City 1 – 4 (RESULT)

Sergio Aguero and Nolito scored twice as Manchester City resisted Stoke’s second-half comeback to continue their winning start under Pep Guardiola.

City led when Aguero converted from the spot – despite missing two penalties on Tuesday – with his second deftly nodded in from Kevin de Bruyne’s free-kick.

Bojan lifted the hosts with the game’s second penalty – both awarded for tugging in the box.

But Nolito came on to score two late goals and seal City’s win.

The Spanish forward tucked in fellow sub Kelechi Iheanacho’s cut-back from close range with four minutes to play, before punishing Stoke again in the fifth minute of stoppage time when played through by Raheem Sterling.

It was a deserved victory for the away side, who were totally dominant in the first half and rarely seriously threatened after the break.
