Manchester City made it 10 wins out of 10 under Pep Guardiola with a 3-1 victory over Swansea City.
Sergio Aguero returned from a three-match domestic suspension to score either side of Fernando Llorente’s maiden Swansea goal, as the hosts posed plenty of questions for the Premier League leaders in a display that should offer encouragement to under-fire boss Francesco Guidolin.
Aguero’s second of the game and 11th in six appearances this season came from the penalty spot in the 65th minute of a pulsating contest, which Raheem Sterling settled decisively with a breakaway goal 13 minutes from time.
Guardiola’s team are now four points ahead of Tottenham at the summit, who they face at White Hart Lane next week on the back of a Champions League trip to Celtic, though the sight of Kevin De Bruyne hobbling off late on put a dampener on the Spaniard’s afternoon.
