Manchester City's Out of the Gate Quickly
No style points in this one.
But all that counts are the three gained in the table.
Manchester City faced off against those relegation zone escape specialists from Sunderland and eked out a 2-1 victory.
Pep Guardiola may be new to the Premiership but not to winning ways.

Not at the start, though. City couldn't have asked for a better one, as Sunderland slid them a penalty in the fourth minute.
'Waaaay too much free space for this classy Cat.
But, alas, chaos may have created the universe, but it's not such a positive influence in a team's back four.
Ask Paddy Mcnair. Dude gave Guardiola's crew quite a gift three minutes from time.
And there goes a precious road point for the club that lets too many of them slip away, year after year.
