Sergio Aguero made his 300th Manchester City appearance with his 205th goal for the club as the Premier League champions beaten Cardiff City 5-0.
Fresh from signing a one-year contract extension, Aguero tucked in City’s opener 32′ after he was picked out by Bernardo Silva, who scored with a looping header three minutes later.
Ilkay Gundogan curled in an unstoppable effort 44′ and was then lucky to escape injury before the break when Joe Ralls caught the German just below the knee with a challenge that saw the Cardiff midfielder receive a booking.
In the second half, Riyad Mahrez tapped in his first City goal 67′ before scoring his second late on 89′
Mahrez has had limited game-time since City broke their club transfer record in July by signing him from Leicester for £60m.
The Algeria international claimed his first City goals on Saturday as a second-half brace helped the Premier League champions beat Cardiff 5-0.
Liverpool kept their perfect start to the season as they returned to the top of the Premier League table with a comfortable 3-0 win over Southampton.
Wesley Hoedt own goal 10′ set them on their way before Joel Matip’s header 21′ and Mohamed Salah’s close-range strike 45+3′ had the game wrapped up by half-time.
There was a mild concern for Liverpool after the break as Virgil van Dijk went off with what appeared to be a rib injury but, despite that, they cruised through the remainder of Jurgen Klopp’s 600th league game as a manager.
Harry Kane helped Tottenham to earn a much-needed 2-1 win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
After four games without scoring for club and country, Kane gave Spurs the lead from the penalty spot 42′ after Glenn Murray had handled while blocking a free-kick.

Joao Moutinho’s second-half equalizer denied Manchester United a fourth successive win in all competitions as Wolves earned a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Wonderfully set up by Paul Pogba in the 18′, Wolves did not let United’s opener unsettle them, though, as they remained a real threat and engineered a deserved equalizer for Moutinho in the 53rd minute.
After a disappointing afternoon for Mancherster United, that means they have dropped six points from seven Premier Leagues games at Old Trafford against newly-promoted opposition under Jose Mourinho.
Alexandre Lacazette’s outstanding second-half strike helped Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Everton in the Premier League at The Emirates on Super Sunday.
The impressive Petr Cech kept Arsenal level in the first half with several fine stops, before a curling stunner from Lacazette 56′ and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s close-range finish (59) gave the hosts a cushion, despite the latter looking offside.
The result means Arsenal have won their last five on the bounce having lost their opening two, and sit in sixth place with Everton back in 12th.
West Ham United stopped Chelsea’s winning streak in a 0-0 draw on Premier League on Sunday.
After winning their first five games under Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea’s quality in the final third was severely lacking as Eden Hazard was suffocated by the Hammers’ midfield.
West Ham created clear chances but missed the ruthlessness of Marko Arnautovic, who was absent with a knee injury.
The standout opportunity fell to Andriy Yarmolenko late on but he headed wide from six yards out.
