Man City boss Guardiola: Sterling future could be central

City manager Pep Guardiola said of the decision: "David Silva will be our captain", he affirmed.

Spurs' record signing Tanguy Ndombele also netted on his debut as Mauricio Pochettino's side was forced to dig deep after conceding an early goal in the late match.

Elsewhere, there were big wins for Burnley and Brighton.

"Only what I wish is that VAR doesn't make mistakes please", said Guardiola, who felt that his side's disallowed goal should have stood.

City watched last season's runner-up Liverpool romp to a 4-1 win over Norwich City on Friday and answered with an emphatic triumph of its own.

But in a worrying sign for those trying to stop Guardiola's men romping to a third straight league crown, City cruised to victory despite being far from their best before half-time.

Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring in the 25th, and Kevin de Bruyne set up Sterling in the 51st, before Jesus had a well-worked team effort ruled out by VAR for offside.

Aguero then denied the England global the chance to seal his hat-trick from the spot, before the 24-year-old eventually grabbed his third goal of the game in stoppage time. "In terms of the result, yes".

The interior minister, who is also deputy prime minister, said cabinet meetings were dogged by disputes. A snap election would be only be called if it proves impossible to form a new government without it.

"I can not deny it, I'm delighted to win 5-0 away from home in the first game", said Guardiola, who felt his side had been sloppy in the first half at the London Stadium.

Tottenham's Harry Kane celebrates with teammates after scoring his side's third goal during the English Premier League soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium in London, Saturday, Aug. 10, 2019.

John McGinn's ninth-minute goal for the visitors seemed set to mark the occasion in style as Champions League finalists Spurs - playing without the benched Christian Eriksen for over an hour - struggled to create chances.

"We came out in the second half with a high tempo, pressed well", said Kane.

"It's the first game but it's always nice to win, at home as well", added the England captain.

The England worldwide was unlucky as he was judged to have been in an offside position when he provided the assist for Gabriel Jesus to sweep home the first goal in Premier League history to be ruled out by VAR. "It's down to us players to perform on the pitch".

The former Brentford striker followed fellow substitute Florin Andone by netting in the second half, Abdoulaye Doucoure's terrible own goal after 28 minutes having set Graham Potter's new side on its way. Ashley Barnes scored twice as Burnley launched its campaign with a 3-0 victory against Southampton, and substitute Billy Sharp scored a late equalizer to help promoted Sheffield United draw 1-1 at Bournemouth.
