Fantastic.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 17, 2019There were just 20 minutes on the clock when he breached the Tottenham backline.He has made a habit of drifting in at the far post to be in the right place at the right time.That was the case once again against Spurs, with Kevin De Bruyne spotting his clever run.There was still much to do when the ball arrived at Sterling, but he guided a cushioned header back across Hugo Lloris and into the bottom corner.City’s advantage was to last less than three minutes, with Erik Lamela restoring parity after being given far too much space on the edge of the box.Pep Guardiola’s reigning Premier League champions are rarely rattled for long, though, and hit back themselves before half-time.The predatory Sergio Aguero added to his club-record collection of goals as he guided home a low cross from De Bruyne.
