Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for the hosts before Jermain Defoe levelled as the Spaniard took three points from his opening game and left goalkeeper Joe Hart on the bench


Manchester City gave new manager Pep Guardiola a winning start to his Premier League career with a 2-1 victory over Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium.

Jermain Defoe cancelled out an early Sergio Aguero penalty, but David Moyes’ side were denied a share of the spoils as debutant Paddy McNair turned into his own net with just three minutes to play.

Guardiola, in his first competitive match in charge, had just four minutes to wait for the opening goal, as Aguero converted a penalty following Patrick van Aanholt’s rash challenge on Raheem Sterling.

City, who handed debuts to Nolito and John Stones, enjoyed close to 75 per cent possession in the first half but were unable to capitalise on their dominance, and only a smart save from Willy Caballero – starting ahead of Joe Hart – denied Defoe an equaliser four minutes before the break.
