It seems the best way to foil any defensive plan is to do something a little different, so when the visitors saw the ball at Ederson's feet, there seemed little to worry about - but one pinpoint 70-yard pass later and City were about to strike.

Sergio Aguero scored his 13th hat trick for Manchester City as the Premier League champions brushed Huddersfield aside in a 6-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Six minutes later Jesus scored neatly after Benjamin Mendy's bustling run before Aguero pounced on Hamer's poor handling for a third. Understandably, much of the news this week has focused on Kevin De Bruyne who will be ruled out for three months with a knee injury.

Silva curled home a majestic free kick with his left foot to mark his 250th appearance for City in style.

The Argentina star - City's all-time leading scorer - joins former Liverpool forward Robbie Fowler on nine Premier League hat-tricks. It's a tough opening round of games for David Wagner's team but will draw some confidence from last seasons 0-0 draw at the Etihad against the Citizens.

Pep Guardiola acted by resting Aguero for the closing stages of the game, while Phil Foden was also provided with another opportunity from the bench in the absence of Kevin De Bruyne. We decided today, we would play with two strikers.

He said it was the fourth time in three years the Mossad has assassinated an enemy weapons engineer in a foreign country. The Britain-based watchdog group said the man had close ties with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Iran.

It was his ninth treble in the Premier League - a tally second only to Alan Shearer - and came just a fortnight after a decisive brace in the Community Shield win over Chelsea.

The intensity of the game had been dropping, but City were still able to add a sixth goal before the full-time whistle when Kongolo diverted the ball into his own net after Hamer had saved Leroy Sane's close-range effort.

A delighted Guardiola told Sky Sports: 'Last season Huddersfield played five at the back.

The news of Kevin De Bruyne's knee injury has sent shockwaves across FPL, with 16.8% of players still having the Belgium global in their squad.

Guardiola's ability to bring the best out of intelligent players even when moving them into new, unaccustomed positions makes his City side perhaps the most flexible the Premier League has seen.

"Mendy is Mendy. Sometimes we want to kill him and sometimes you think, wow, what a player we have", Guardiola said.
