Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva scored as City opened the defence of their title with a 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium.

City, who last season became the first team to reach 100 points in the league, continued their recent dominance of Arsenal and extended their run of winning every Premier League opener since 2008.

Sterling struck first, scoring in the 14th minute after taking possession on the edge of the area, dribbling back across the D and turning and firing through Arsenal’s defence to beat Petr Cech to his left.Raheem Sterling

Although Cech stopped Sergio Aguero, who had half the pitch to himself in the 63rd minute after Guendouzi misplayed a high ball, Silva doubled the lead one minute later, scoring when Benjamin Mendy ran up the left and pulled it back as Silva drifted to the spot to finish left-footed.
