Manchester City will play their first home game of the 2018/2019 season, against a resolute Huddersfield side who will be looking to frustrate the reigning league champions.

The Etihad Stadium will welcome back the Champions of England, Manchester City, this afternoon for their first home game of the season against Huddersfield Town.

Huddersfield did manage to hold City at bay for 25 minutes but were undone when goalkeeper Ederson superbly picked out Aguero with a pinpoint pass and the striker drew out Terriers keeper Ben Hamer before lifting the ball into the net.

Speaking at a press conference, the City boss said: "We want to help the Premier League".

The Gunners opened their season with a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City last season.

On his 250th appearance in the Premier League, Silva, with less hair than little Mateo, flighted a fourth into the visiting rigging with an unstoppable free-kick from distance on 48 minutes before departing to a standing ovation 16 minutes later.

David Silva! 4-1! Surely it's all over now!

Huddersfield worked miracles staying in the Premier League last season, but it might be an even greater surprise if they are to stay out of the bottom three a second year.

Aguero then went inches away from grabbing a hat trick as he hit the inside of the post from outside of the box and then smashed wide.

De Bruyne's expected three-month absence is a blow but City once again proved they are far from a one-man team.

A Terence Kongolo own goal completed the rout as City eased to a 6-1 win without the likes of the injured Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling.

Five minutes later, Aguero had his third - and his 31st league game in which he has scored multiple goals.

"I never saw him like this since I was here", said Guardiola, praising Aguero after pairing him with Gabriel Jesus up front.

"Nobody pushed him, he chose to finish his global career so he could rest a little bit more with his wife, family and his little boy while continuing to play with us".

He was superb in the Community Shield win over Chelsea and opening league victory at Arsenal, with his performance in the Wembley curtain-raiser hailed as a "masterpiece" by Guardiola.
