Sergio Aguero struck as Manchester City ended a four-match run without a Premier League win by beating Hull City 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

City continued to create chances, with Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure both threatening goal on a couple of occasions, but the breakthrough came from a Hull defender when Ahmed Elmohamady found his own net.

Fabian Delph hammered in City's third before Andrea Ranocchia pulled one back late on.

Meanwhile, Hull boss Marco Silva - whose side remain two points above the relegation zone thanks to Swansea City's defeat to West Ham, still has confidence that the Tigers will beat the drop. With Marco Silva's words still ringing in their ears from the half time break, they were powerless to stop Manchester City doubling their lead and killing the game. Two good chances for City but Jakupovic denies them twice, blocking Silva's effort after Aguero had slipped him through and then reacting with great speed to deny Sane on the rebound.

Guardiola has vowed to improve in 2017-18 but admits he is hugely frustrated that he failed to act on concerns he spotted in the 6-0 aggregate win over Steaua in the Champions League play-off round.

Guardiola said: "I promise you he was so happy". The Foxes have already tasted victory at Goodison Park this season, in the FA Cup, when the team was struggling under Claudio Ranieri, and won there last season so it is an entirely realistic prospect.

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.

"I worked very hard for that one opportunity and within the conditions that we available to me".

"The next six games we must keep our goal in our hands", Silva said.

Stoke City play host to Liverpool at the Bet365 Stadium this afternoon looking to reclaim a place in the top half of the Premier League table after four matches without success.

Champions League winners Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola are the only managers to win their first six Premier League matches.

Spurs has combined its faultless home form with away victories in recent weeks and has stretched its advantage over fifth-placed rival Arsenal to 14 points.
