Manchester City ran riot during their first home game of the season after easily dispatching Huddersfield 6-1 thanks to strikes from Gabriel Jesus, David Silva, an own goal and a hat-trick from Sergio Aguero.
The prolific Argentine striker broke the deadlock with a delightful chip after a superb 70-yard long ball from Ederson set up the quick counter to allow Aguero through. City had the second goal soon after when Gabriel Jesus’ early strike beat Ben Hamer in the Terriers’ net. The hosts made it 3-0 10 minutes before half-time when a costly mistake saw Hamer spill the ball into the path of Aguero who managed to get his second and City’ third with a tap-in.
The Terriers got one back minutes before the break after Jon Stankovic caught John Stones napping from a throw-in. David Silva restored City’s three-goal cushion with a superb free kick shortly before Aguero finally got his hat-trick to wrap up a comfortable win for the reigning Premier League champions.
