Explosive, stylish, inventive, mesmeric… the superlatives could go on as City started the new season with a breath-taking 4-0 win over ten-man Newcastle United to climb to the summit of the Premier League (albeit after one game!)

It wasn’t so much the visitors were swept away, more caught in the eye of a hurricane for long periods as Manuel Pellegrini’s marauding Blues attacked at will and tore open the visitors’ defence with a hunger that suggests this could be a thrilling campaign.

It’s no exaggeration to say that City could have racked up double figures against a Newcastle side who simply could not live with the pace and movement of Pellegrini’s men.
