With just five minutes on the clock, the Pep Guardiola side took the lead when Rodri sends a diagonal pass wide to Sterling, whose volley back inside bounces before De Bruyne arrives to smash it past Pope and into the net.

Sterling had a brilliant touch in anticipating where De Bruyne would be as City sliced through the hosts like a hot knife through butter.

City doubled their lead after 20 minutes. After a brilliant one-two between De Bruyne and Sterling, the latter sped down the right flank, cutting the ball back to Gundogan, whose half-volley caught Pope off guard and rolled into the net.

Sterling gets the assist once more, this time from a right-wing cut-back into the same area of the box as De Bruyne scored.
