Guardiola wins debut game with city

Manchester City’s new manager, Pep Guardiola needed a late Paddy McNair own goal to make a winning start (2-1) in the English Premier League as David Moyes lost his first game as Sunderland manager.

Sergio Aguero’s penalty in the fourth minute, after Raheem Sterling was fouled by Patrick van Aanholt, gave City an early lead at Etihad Stadium.

But Guardiola, who left England keeper Joe Hart out of his starting XI, saw his new side concede to Jermain Defoe in the 71st minute.

City made few chances, but snatched an 87th-minute winner when debutant McNair put into his own net.
