Raheem Sterling acknowledged that Manchester City benefited from the return of Sergio Aguero as they ground out a 1-0 win against Arsenal to get their season back on track.

Sterling has had to play as a false nine this season with Aguero and Gabriel Jesus missing but the Argentine’s first action since injuring his knee in June gave City a better shape and allowed Sterling to play deeper where he filled in for Kevin De Bruyne, who had a muscular problem.

‘At times in the first half, me and Sergio got in the pockets well. It was an important result for us. We have dropped -points early on and needed a win to kickstart our season.’

Sterling managed to break forward to score the only goal after 23 minutes and smiled: ‘I like to be in the box for the goal.’

The win was a relief for Pep Guardiola who had seen his side beaten 5-2 by Leicester in their last home game and couldn’t pick Aymeric Laporte and Benjamin Mendy due to injury besides De Bruyne and Jesus.
