City cruise past Hull

City cruise past Hull

That and a late consolation for Andrea Ranocchia were the bright points on an afternoon when Hull's record of never having won at either Maine Road or the Etihad continued.

Raheem Sterling (Manchester City): Against opposition who were content to try and frustrate them, Man City needed some individual magic and it was Sterling who provided that for the crucial second goal.

It's widely expected that City will spend significantly this summer to further strengthen their squad and ensure that Guardiola has the personnel and group in place to fully implement his ideas and style of play.

In the Spaniard's defence, the squad he has taken on at City does not have the spread of world-class talent that he worked with at Barcelona and in Munich, but there have been many signs that the competitive nature of the Premier League has taken him by surprise.

"We tried to change some things at half-time to prepare our team to press a little bit more, but they scored in the first minutes of the second half".

Short of the injured Harry Maguire, Hull were carved open inside five minutes - David Silva unable to mark his 300th City appearance with an early goal as Jakupovic reacted instinctively to make a fine save.

But Jakupovic could do nothing to prevent City's fortunate opener. Subs: Hernandez 5, Maloney 6, Henriksen 5.

"We missed two penalties and an amount of chances". Hull manager Marco Silva, meanwhile, was a constant presence on the touchline but kept his cool - even when Elmohamady directed the ball into his own net.

"Manchester City controlled the rest of the game". Sterling looks to be contained on the edge of the box but he drops the shoulder and goes past three Hull defenders and crossing low for Aguero to finish.

The Tigers, who lost 3-1 at Manchester City on Saturday, have six games remaining to secure their top-flight status.

The Blues lost their first game in nearly three months last weekend, falling to a surprise 2-1 defeat against Sam Allardyce's Crystal Palace.

Silva has achieved 17 points in 11 Premier League fixtures, and finally got the club out of the relegation zone after a 4-2 win over Middlesbrough on Wednesday.

Manchester City have won six of the last seven meetings between these two, with the other a draw.
