Having won their second league title in three years, Manchester City have started the season with two wins.

But there’s more to their performance than just goals this time round.

Manchester City: Champions off and runningAfter a long summer of celebration, relaxation, barbecues and a World Cup; Premier League champions Manchester City have started this new campaign in the exact same manner as they finished the last… and that is winning and doing it in style.

After powering past Newcastle in a tricky opening fixture on Tyneside, City showed they don’t necessarily have to play sexy football in order to be efficient but their most recent triumph against league-rivals Liverpool proved otherwise.

Although Pellegrini’s men got off to a rather slow and sloppy start they showed just why they are champions for the second time in three seasons by easing past Liverpool and sealing a comfortable 3-1 victory. The somewhat ‘ghost striker’ Stevan Jovetic hit a double for City and continued his impressive form from pre-season and star-man Sergio Aguero put his miseries of Brazil behind him to net a third despite only being on the pitch for a matter of seconds.

No doubt the biggest positive for City boss Manuel Pellegrini would be the performance of Montenegro striker Stevan Jovetic. After signing for the club last summer, Jovetic endured countless injuries and struggled to get any game-time with the outstanding form of Aguero, Dzeko and Negredo but with the latter out for another couple of months and Aguero also being injury-prone Jovetic now has the chance to prove himself to the Premier League and what better way to start than by hitting a two-goal brace past Liverpool on Monday.

The first of his two goals was a real poacher’s effort, pouncing on a loose header by Dejan Lovren and smashing it home past Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. Jovetic’s second for City showed the other side to his game where he started and finished a brilliant City move which saw him convert Samir Nasri’s cross left-footed past Mignolet once again. With two league goals to his name already, Jovetic has already forgotten last season where he only managed 3 league goals in the entire campaign.

City have made a flying start to this new Premier League campaign and they find themselves sitting third and their next match will see them host Stoke on Saturday followed by a big clash at the Emirates Stadium to Arsenal on September 13th. See you there.
