Manchester City earned a third straight win to start the Premier League season with a 2-0 victory over Everton on Sunday, thanks to second-half goals by Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri.

Kolarov put City ahead in the 60th minute when he charged up from left back, ran onto Raheem Sterling's pass and beat American goalkeeper Tim Howard at his near post with a shot from an acute angle.

Nasri came on as a substitute and scored the second by chipping Howard after playing a one-two with Yaya Toure.
