Manchester City won the first trophy of the Pep Guardiola era on Sunday, brushing Arsenal aside 3-0 in the League Cup final with the help of an old-fashioned route-one goal from Sergio Aguero.

City opened the scoring in the 18th minute when a long punt up field from goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was controlled by Aguero, who coolly lifted the ball over a helpless David Ospina in the Arsenal goal.

Captain Vincent Kompany doubled the lead in the second half with just over half an hour to go and David Silva put the game out of the reach of Arsenal.

But Arsenal went closest to taking the lead within the first 10 minutes, with new signing Pierre-Emerick seeing his scuffed shot saved by a sprawling Bravo.
