Agüero at the double for four-goal City

Sergio Agüero introduced himself to English football with two goals as Manchester City FC got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start with a 4-0 defeat of Swansea City FC.

Sergio Agüero scored twice on his debut in English football as Manchester City FC got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start with four unanswered second-half goals against Swansea City FC.

Roberto Mancini's charges passed up numerous chances to score in the first half, with goalkeeper Michal Vorm impressing with a string of saves for the newly promoted side but Edin Džeko, David Silva and Agüero were all on target in the second period.

Silva and Gareth Barry had also both hit the crossbar before the breakthrough arrived on 57 minutes when Vorm made his first mistake of the night palming Adam Johnson's curling effort into the path of Džeko, who tapped in. Agüero was introduced from the bench on the hour-mark and within eight minutes had produced his first goal for his new club, popping up at the far post to finish off a move down the right involving Yaya Touré and Micah Richards.

The Argentinian international was also involved in the third goal, three minutes later, when he lobbed the advancing Vorm before acrobatically keeping the ball in play with a dextrous cutback for Silva to finish neatly. But the pick off the goals came in added time when Agüero unleashed an unstoppable drive from 25 metres. City join Bolton Wanderers FC at the top of the table with three points and four goals scored.
