West Brom 0-3 Man City
Yaya Toure inspired Manchester City to a stunning away victory at West Brom as £49m summer signing Raheem Sterling made his debut. Yaya Toures shot seemed to be deflected off team-mate David Silva and go through defender Craig Dawson’s legs before rolling over the line. Man City moved 2-0 up when Toure curled a delicious shot into the top corner.
Vincent Kompany then headed in a corner as City delivered an early statement to rival title contenders.
West Brom had a rare chance for a consolation goal when Chris Brunt crossed for James Morrison, who headed straight at goalkeeper Joe Hart. Man City host Chelsea next Sunday in a big game for both teams.
