City win in comfortable fashion thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden.

David Luiz was sent off after fouling Riyad Mahrez and giving away the penalty which led to the second goal.

Also worth remembering that City defender Eric Garcia was stretchered off after colliding with keeper Ederson.

Not the best day’s action, but the Premier League is BACK!

90+5 min: City zip up the other end on the break and Aguero should score as he is fed in front of goal, only for the Argentine to slice his shot wide.

This could be seven or eight now.

GOAL! Foden makes it 3-0 as City cut through Arsenal at will.
