City made a flying start, racing into a two-goal lead inside 15 minutes thanks to a wonderful 46-pass team move finished with style by Phil Foden and Erling Haaland's subsequent eighth goal of the season.
City could and perhaps should have further extended our lead before the game then turned on its head immediately after the restart when Rodrigo was shown a straight red card for violent conduct after a tangle with Morgan Gibbs-White.
It meant Pep Guardiola's side had to dig deep in the face of a numerical disadvantage.
But City stood tall showing great character and determination in what was a feisty encounter, as we maintained our 100 per cent start to the season.
Enjoy the best of the action from what was City's 300th Premier League home win...
