Sergio Aguero's exquisite solo strike and late goals by Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho earned Manchester City a 3-0 win over Chelsea in the first heavyweight showdown in the Premier League, compounding the defending champions' early-season problems.

Aguero made amends for a slew of early misses by exchanging passes with Yaya Toure, twisting inside his marker and placing a pinpoint shot inside the far post in the 32nd minute.

Kompany headed in David Silva's corner in the 79th minute and Fernandinho drove in a third six minutes later for a victory that could have a big psychological effect in the title race.
