Having come to the boil nicely in North America and Dublin then looked undercooked at Wembley there may have been some concern about City’s opening day menu at the Etihad Stadium.

The fact that so many of the Premier League home sides made a dog’s dinner of their curtain raiser hardly helped settle any nerves and indeed this was a slow burner.

Then the Blues burst into life and scored three in 14 minutes. To continue the culinary theme (if paraphrasing Masterchef counts!) -football doesn’t get much better than this!

All the ingredients were there for a night of passion and intrigue on a rain slicked pitch that suited both sides’ passing games.
