Sergio AGUERO misses penalty, retakes it, scores for Manchester City

Manuel Pellegrini: West Ham squad is stronger than last season

Fabianski saved Sergio Aguero's weakly hit penalty kick, before Declan Rice came in and cleared the ball.

"In the first half we were sloppy in our passing".

But Pellegrini smashed the club's record transfer by bringing in French forward Sebastien Haller for £40million, and on deadline day completed his front line with the capture of Switzerland worldwide Albian Ajeti.

Here's hoping we can translate our superiority into a first win and start our title defence strongly. "You think at 3-0 the game is nearly over but at 2-0, the game is completely different".

Kevin de Bruyne set up Sterling to score through Lukasz Fabianski's legs in the 51st, minutes before Jesus had a well-worked team effort ruled out through VAR for offside.

Aguero made amends for the miss at the second time of asking after firing into the bottom left corner, but had once again prevented Sterling from taking home the match ball.

A 5G phone from OnePlus is coming to Sprint
This new OnePlus device will be Sprint's third 5G-capable smartphone, joining the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and LG V50. But the carrier isn't stopping there, as it's just announced that it will launch a OnePlus 5G smartphone on its network.

In the end it didn't matter as City were easy winners, making it five in injury time as Sterling slotted in his hat-trick to make it five. The doctor - I don't think he was from the national team - didn't send the necessary [paperwork], that was the only reason why [he didn't play]", Goal.com quoted Guardiola as saying."We didn't have it at the right moment. Nothing will be comparable to that. After 3-0 the game is nearly over, but at 2-0, 10 minutes later Ederson had to make an incredible save, and we'd have played the last 15 minutes at 2-1. So you have to be 100 per cent ready, always be focused.

New summer signing Sebastien Haller will lead the line for West Ham with Michel Antonio and Manuel Lanzini for support. Luckily for him, the London Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for City, who have won their four visits 5-0, 4-0 4-1 and 4-0.

This will be the Irons' second season under Manuel Pellegrini, who will be looking to build on last seasons 10th place finish.

On 25 minutes, City made the breakthrough and it was a familiar goal that West Ham have been conceding all pre-seaso.

"In the beginning we spoke about mentality; why should I doubt them after what they've done?"

It is not the first time City have been accused of such a tactic.
