It was a tale of two penalties yet again for Manchester City as they continued their positive start to the season with a 4-1 victory away to Stoke City. 

After his midweek hat-trick against Steaua Bucharest, Sergio Aguero was amongst the goals once more as he netted a first-half brace. 

And despite missing two penalties in Romania, the Argentine frontman didn't shy away when Ryan Shawcross fouled Nicolas Otamendi inside the area, and he confidently dispatched the resulting spot-kick to give his side the lead at the Britannia.

Soon after the Citizens went two goals ahead as Aguero headed Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick into the bottom left corner to put the visitors in control before half-time. 

Stoke started the second half brightly and managed to get back into the game as Bojan converted from the spot after Raheem Sterling was adjudged to have impeded Shawcross. 

The Potters could count themselves rather fortunate to have been awarded a penalty as replays showed Sterling's contact was minimal.

The hosts continued to push for an equaliser but Man City substitutes Kelechi Iheanacho and Nolito combined to make it 3-1 to the visitors. 

Nolito then grabbed his second of the afternoon as he turned Sterling's square ball into an empty net to cap off an impressive performance from Pep Guardiola's side.
