Pep Guardiola’s first win in the Premier League came against Sunderland through goals from Aguero and an own goal from McNair. City went on to win 2-1, with J. Defoe netting the equalizer for the Black Cats.
Aguero continued his fine run of form the following weekend, scoring a brace as City bulldozed past Stoke with a 4-1 victory at the Britannia stadium.
Guardiola’s side registered their third successive victory in the Premier League with a 3-1 stamping of visiting West Ham, but it was their 2-1 win at Old Trafford that underlined their title aspirations.
De Bruyne and K. Iheanacho scored for City while Z. Ibrahimovic got the consolation goal for the hosts.
Free scoring escapades against Bournemouth and Swansea saw City close September at the peak of the Premier League standings.
Tottenham however threw the former champions a curveball, handing them a 2-0 defeat in what was quite frankly a stroke of genius by Mauricio Pochettino.
1-1 draws at home to Everton and Southampton further dented their title ambitions, but the Citizens were back to winning ways with a 4-0 victory at the Hawthorns.
A 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough and 2-1 away victories over Crystal Palace and Burnley had the Manchester side tied with Liverpool on 30 points, but in third place by virtue of goal difference at the time of writing.
Chelsea currently lead the log.
