City struck inches wide on two occasions in a goalless first half through Gabriel Jesus and David Silva, but within seconds of the restart, Raheem Sterling had slotted home his sixth goal in four games for club and country (46).

David Silva then got the slightest touch on Kevin De Bruyne’s cross for a controversial second after a VAR review for a potential Sterling offside (65), but there was nothing contentious about Ilkay Gundogan’s half-volley for 3-0 (70).
