Manchester City cruised to a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in International Champions Cup tie ahead of the new season.

City opened the scoring when Kevin De Bruyne’s free-kick flicked off the wall and fell to the feet of Stones, who made no mistake from close range and gave them 1-0 after just 10 minutes.

Sterling then doubled their lead with 16 minutes to full time when he blazed through an almost static Tottenham defence and turned the ball past goalkeepr Michel Vorm.
Victory was wrapped up in stoppage time when Tottenham failed to clear their lines after a series of shots were blocked and Diaz popped up to make it two goals from two games with a simple tap in.
Tottenham simply could not live with the speed and ingenuity of City and that will worry Mauricio Pochettino during a tour to end with two defeats.
Spurs need new blood before the transfer window shuts and will recruit eventually, Pochettino has promised as much, and this performance by a full-strength side was a disappointment. For Guardiola, largely encouragement ahead of Friday’s final friendly against West Ham in Iceland.
