City hit four without reply against Brighton and Hove Albion to continue our unbeaten start to the new Premier League campaign.
Victory was inspired by Sergio Aguero who grabbed a brace and provided an assist for Bernardo Silva’s late goal after Kevin De Bruyne had opened the scoring as early as the second minute at the Etihad Stadium.

There was plenty to celebrate for the champions, who temporarily returned to the top of the league ahead of Liverpool’s game at Burnley, but this was a win that came at a cost.
Aymeric Laporte was stretchered off with what looked to be a knee injury, with Fernandinho replacing him for his first appearance of the season.
It was a keenly-contested game, in which Brighton more than played their part and you can watch nine minutes of the best action in the video above.
