Manchester City maintained their 100 per cent start to their Champions League campaign with a dominant 3-0 win at Marseille.

Summer-signing Ferran Torres gave City the lead from close range after some slack Marseille passing (18), before Oleksandr Zinchenko hit the outside of the post with a low effort.

Marseille waited to up the ante in the second half, but City doubled their lead before the hosts could truly threaten, as Ilkay Gundogan swept home from 10 yards following Raheem Sterling's header across goal (76).

As the 21-year-old Canadian driver of the Formula 1 racing team Racing Point announced in the social networks, he had already started his journey home on Sunday after his stomach problems on the Saturday of the race weekend in the Eifel and had a test done in the evening.

Sterling then turned scorer, tapping home the third from a trademark Kevin De Bruyne delivery (81), meaning City top Group C by three points following Porto's win over Olympiakos, while Marseille are bottom, and without a Champions League win in 11.

How City put Marseille to bed with ease

Marseille boss Andre Villas-Boas set his side up with a five-man defence for the first time this season, leaving Dimitri Payet on the bench, and their conservative approach was evident as they showed City too much respect in the first half.

After a few early half chances, City took the lead through Torres, slotting home at close range from De Bruyne's centre after Valentin Rongier's loose pass ran across Duje Caleta-Car and into the Belgian's path on the right of the box.

It was Torres' second goal in two Champions League games for City, and De Bruyne's 87th assist in all competitions for the club, 18 more than any other Premier League player since his debut in September 2015.

Zinchenko came close to a second after some more sloppy Marseille defending; Leonardo Balerdi gave the ball away in the box, but the left-back's low effort from 15 yards hit the outside of Steve Mandanda's right-hand post.

Florian Thauvin hit the outside of the post with a speculative long-range effort in the second half, but in truth Ederson had it covered, and that was as close as the hosts came as an intense City got their second before the French side could make for a nervy ending.

Phil Foden did well on the left before lifting a cross for Sterling at the back post, and his header back across goal brushed off Torres and fell perfectly for Gundogan to convert under Mandanda.

And it was soon 3-0 as the brilliant De Bruyne was found behind the defence on the right by sub Riyad Mahrez, and Sterling converted his low centre from close range.

This was City's most dominant and disciplined performance of an inconsistent season so far, but Pep Guardiola's side may not have it easier in this year's competition as they chase that elusive Champions League.

What the manager said...

City boss Pep Guardiola on BT Sport: "We played really well, we didn't concede much, we were under control, patient, aggressive without the ball, I am so satisified for the performance, the victory, because winning away is difficult and we did it.

"Kevin [De Bruyne] always plays good. There's always something special, I am so happy he's back from two weeks injured. He played relaly well again. Ruben [Dias] and Aymeric [Laporte] were good, Kyle [Walker] is in the best form since we've been together in Manchester.

"We have to accept the criticism. We play every three days, when you win it's good but if you don't people want to destroy everything. But it's about the chairman and everyone else understanding.

"Part of the criticism was right, but you've got to accept it. It's part of our job. It's about where we've come from in the last month, with lack of preparation, injuries and covid, but the Champions League is in a good place now. I'm sure we're going to have a good season."
