STOKE, Aug 20: Sergio Aguero rediscovered his accuracy from the penalty spot in scoring one of his two goals for Manchester City in a 4-1 win at Stoke in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Argentina striker failed to score from two penalties in a Champions League playoff match on Tuesday, but converted a 27th-minute effort to set City on its way to a second straight league victory to open the season.

Aguero then headed in a whipped free kick by Kevin De Bruyne in the 36th for 2-0, making it six goals in the season already for City's star striker.

Bojan Krkic pulled a goal back for Stoke from the penalty spot in the 49th, and City fought to preserve its lead in the second half playing against the wind before substitute Nolito scored two late tap-ins.
