Despite wrapping that game up with another goal, City didn't quite look a team that would have opposing sides quaking in the tunnel before the first whistle.
Despite their stirring displays though, I couldn't help but feel that there are still chinks in the armour.
Arsene Wenger may well be the happier manager, particularly with his side having played on Thursday night in the Europa League and had less time to prepare for the clash (Chelsea played on Tuesday in the Champions League).
Though it's still early days into the season, but both Manchester clubs have started the season on fire and the highly anticipated title race between Jose and Pep seems to have dawned on the Premier League at last. They have not yet reached the heights that City have, but it's a fine line, and neither team has had a real test yet.
Mourinho's side will make the long trip to Southampton in their next Premier League game on Saturday afternoon. Pep Guardiola's Manchester City kicked off the season with a routine 2-0 win against a plucky Brighton side that put up some stubborn resistance for 70 odd minutes at the Amex before a horrendous mistake by Dale Stephens allowed Aguero to pounce and dink past Matthew Ryan in goal. "There's hope there for City". However, rivals Manchester United strolled to a comfortable 4-0 victory against Ronald Koeman's Everton and are levelled on points at the summit of the Premier League table.
Jose Mourinho's men are quoted at 4/7 (1.57) to succumb first, which is not a surprise given their run of challenging fixtures in the coming weeks. They are obligated to win something.
You have to go back to the 2014/15 season to find a start to the season worse than the current crop's. They have more obligation than us. "I don't think they've really been tested, apart from Everton at the start of the second half".
