Put the biggest stars on the grandest stages and they seldom fluff their lines and football’s English champions are no exception – even if there was the odd stutter.

City’s defence of their title eventually got off to the start that wider public opinion expected and that a packed Etihad Stadium had demanded.

There was not the raw emotion of that glorious day in May when the title was clinched in storybook fashion but there was plenty of drama not least in the opening quarter when the home side lost Sergio Aguero to a knee injury and then missed a penalty.
