Manchester City made it 6 out of 6 after a comfortable 3-1 win against Swansea. 
Aguero opened the scoring on his return with a fine finish past Fabianski. Swansea fought back strongly though and drew level courtesy a stunning strike from summer signing Fernando Llorente. 
With the sides level at the break, an upset was on the cards until a brain fade from Van der Hoorn resulted in a penalty for the Citizens which Aguero converted with ease.
A Raheem Sterling strike late on added icing to the cake.
Pep Guardiola's men remain comfortably placed at the top of the table, 4 points clear of second placed Spurs

...

Final whistle blows!! Swansea 1-3 Manchester City

...

91' Ouch!!
Kyle Naughton goes in hard on Sterling who crumples to the floor in pain

...

We will have 4 minutes of added time

...

89' Great defending by Zabaleta

Borja receives the ball on the right flank and drills it flat and low across the face of the City goal. Zabaleta though is there to mop up and clears it away with ease

...

87' Yellow card for Kolarov
Poor challenge by the left back as he goes in late on Ki. Definitely worthy of a card

...

86' Chance for City

Sterling finds some space in the box but takes too much time on the ball and it is cleared away but straight to Silva who fires a shot wide of the goal

...

85' City now cruising as Swansea heads have dropped

...

80' HOW DID FERNANDINHO NOT SCORE!! Silva finds the Brazilian without much to do but after getting the part of beating his man right he just stumbles over the ball and it runs out for a goal-kick! 

...

77' It was a 3 on 1 situation on the break as De Bruyne gives it to Sterling on the break and the Winger steps over the defender and slots it calmly past Fabianski!

...

76' STERLING SCORESSS! IT'S ALL OVER!!! 3-1 to CITY!!

...

74' WHAT A SAVE FROM FABIANSKI!! Silva's shot deflects wickedly as it loops over Fabianski but the keeper just tips it over in time! Great save, and then Fernandinho heads the resulting corner wide

...

73' Ki Sung-Yung has come on for Jack Cork! An attacking change from the manager

...

70' Fernandinho with an effort from just outside the area goes high! HE should have hit the target with his ability from that range!

...

68' Fernando comes on for Gundogan to add more protection and help City see this out

...

66' That was ridiculous defending from the Dutch defender, now Swansea have to go in search of another equalizer

...


AGUERO MAKES IT 2-1 with a LOVELY CHIP DOWN THE MIDDLE!

...

64' PENALTY TO CITY!!! Van Der Hoom with  an elbow on De Bruyne!

...

63' Angel Rangel with a long ranger, but straight into the comfortable grasp fo Bravo

...

60' SIDE NETTING FROM STERLING! De Bruyne plays him in behind the defence and instead of trying to dink it over the onrushing Fabianski, he goes around him and makes the angle too tight! Again it was the wrong option!

...

59' OVERPLAYING FROM CITY!! Aguero sets up De Bruyne fo the shot and he has loads of time but he waits for the run of Sterling and tees him up instead but his finish is very poor! Why didn't De Bruyne just shoot?

...

58' Leroy Sane has been told to warm up by Pep!

...

57' WHAT BLOCK FROM AMAT! Silva finds Aguero in the middle and he looked favourite to score from a close range but Amat slides in to block it brilliantly!!

...

54' HIGH FROM SIGURDSSON!! Routledge lobs a ball above the City defence and the Icelandic international volleys his shot over the bar when it looked easier to keep it on target!

...

52' RISKY FROM BRAVO! Despite being closed down by Llorente he beats his man to try and keep with the passing methodology!

...

50' Pep has not changed his tactics in the second half as Swansea are threatening on the break

...

49' Great pressure from Swansea. Llorente forces Bravo into a botched clearance

...

48' Corner for City!!

Silva whips it in but Stones powers it way wide off the target

...

47' Chance for Swansea

Routledge receives the ball on the right and fires a ball across the box. There is no one to meet it though and It sneaks just wide of the far post

...

46' Silva receives the ball at the edge of the box and lays it off to Aguero. The Argentine feeds De Bruyne but it is taken off his feet by Sigurrdson

...

We are back for the second half

...

46' HALF-TIME Swansea 1-1 City

...

44' CHANCE!! De Bruyne delivers free-kick, Kolarov pings it in with his head into the middle of the box as Otamendi comes in but Van Der Hoom makes a crucial interception!

...

43' CITY CLOSE AGAIN! De Bruyne and Silva combine down the left-hand side as the Belgian tries to take a shot from the Spaniard's lay off , but the defenders crowd him out forcing to go out to Gundogan who blasts way wide! 

...

41' Swansea are not making it easy for City! Another cross is swung in as Llorente wins the physical battle but can't get his header on target!

...

39' ALMOST FOR CITY! Silva tries to play Gundogan in between two defenders, but his touch is too heavy and it gives the defence the chance to clear!

...

37' Sigurdsson wastes a chance from a set piece as he tries one from 36 yards out but it's a comfortable save for Claudio Bravo

...

34' DE BRUYNE A WHISKER AWAY! Lovely one-touch stuff between Sterling and Silva as they put De Bruyne through on goal and his passing effort is just wide of the post! Swansea playing with fire, with their risky passing

...

33' CLOSE FROM SWANSEA! Aguero loses the ball in a defensive position , as Sigurdsson finds Van Der Hoom's header just lands over the bar!

...

29' AGUERO FINDS THE ROOF OF THE NET...ABOVE THE BAR! That was too close for comfort!  A classic curling effort from the striker!
