Manchester City trash Cardiff City by 5 goals to nil as Sergio Aguero scores on his 300th appearance for the club.
Man City bounced back from their midweek Champions League defeat in the hands of Lyon as Aguero, Gundogan, Bernado Silva were on the scoresheet including a brace for Riyad Mahrez who scores his first goal for Man City today.
The club’s all-time leading goalscorer, who signed a contract extension this week that will keep him at the club until 2021, opened the scoring after 32 minutes.
So often the star of the show, Aguero shared the spotlight on a rainy afternoon in South Wales with Bernardo Silva, who doubled City’s lead three minutes later, and Ilkay Gundogan, who capped a fine performance with a brilliant solo effort.
Substitute Riyad Mahrez scored his first goals for the club with a brace to put the result beyond doubt, and the manner of the victory will have delighted Guardiola after a below-par showing in a 2-1 defeat to Lyon in midweek.

Cool and composed during a scrappy opening half an hour, Gundogan started the move that led to the opener, feeding Silva who squared to Aguero and the striker beat his marker to apply a first-time finish.
