Manchester City remain unbeaten against Sheffield United in the Premier League

REPORT, RATINGS, HIGHLIGHTS – AGUERO, KDB SEAL CITY WIN

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne saw Manchester City get back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United at the Etihad Stadium.

It was not all straight forward for the hosts though as United, who caused City plenty of problems in the first half, thought they had taken the lead in the 29th minute through Lys Mousset, but his effort was ruled out by VAR for offside.

After the break, City showed their clinical side as Aguero (52) and De Bruyne (82) produced emphatic finishes to end Chris Wilder’s side’s strong resistance and seal Pep Guardiola’s 100th Premier League win.
