But the champions were patient and when the opening goal came, it wasn't either Silva (David or Bernardo) who made it - it was Ederson.
Jon-Gorenc Stankovic scored the only goal for Huddersfield - a goal which turned out to be scant consolation.
An Aguero hat-trick looked inevitable - he had already hit the post and narrowly missed the target by the time he flicked in Mendy's glorious delivery 15 minutes from time.

Watts said: "When I got home yesterday, it was like a ghost town". "I'm just hoping right now that she's somewhere safe." he said. Authorities are expected to file charges against Mr Watts, who was sacked from his job on Wednesday, the day he was arrested.

They have had a far harder pair of opening fixtures this time around against possibly the two most attack-minded teams in the Premier League, Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea and now City.
Jesus also played really well, especially when it came down to quick interplay in the final third. He also completed 48 passes with an accuracy of 94% - which is an excellent tally for a player playing around the half-spaces for the most part of the game. He responded by getting even fitter and sharper and has proved to Pep Guardiola why he should still be City's main man.
