Burnley 1-2 Manchester City

Sergio Aguero scored twice as City recovered from an early blow to beat Burnley 2-1 at Turf Moor.

Burnley took a surprise lead with Dean Marney’s 25 yards volley, when City defender Nicolas Otamendi could only head a clearance straight to the Clarets midfielder.

City struggled for fluency but Aguero equalised when he poked in a shot at the far post from a deflected corner.

The visitors controlled the game after the break and took the lead when a Fernandinho cross hit Aguero and went in after some sloppy Burnley defending.
