WATCH: Raheem Sterling Embarrasses Michael Vorm With Clever Finish
Manchester City's impressive tour of the United States came to a close with a convincing 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Nashville, last night.
Fresh off a 4-1 thumping of Real Madrid three days ago, Pep Guardiola's men were in fine form once again, this time at the expense of Mauricio Pochettino's team.
New arrivals Ederson, Kyle Walker and Danilo all started against Spurs, with Walker coming face-to-face with his former employers for the first time since his £50 million move from North London to Manchester, earlier this month.
It took City just 10 minutes to open the scoring, with John Stones finding the back of the net and, before the first-half was through, City could have easily put the game to bed, with Gabriel Jesus skying a sitter from six yards out when it was harder to miss.

Finally, City did extend their lead thanks to Sterling, who owed a debt of gratitude to Samir Nasri for the much maligned Frenchman's inch perfect through ball, which sent the former Liverpool youngster clear of a static Spurs defence, before finishing with a delightfully impudent rolled finish past a flat footed Michael Vorm.

Youngster Brahim Diaz added to his pre-season tally, following his strike against Real earlier this week, with the third and final goal, to hand City a perfect finale to their US tour.
Sterling, meanwhile, will be hoping he can hit the ground running this season in the same manner as he did last term, when he received the Premier League Player of The Month award for August.
Pep Guardiola will himself be hoping for Sterling to display the same form as a year ago, but will want to see it maintained over the course of an entire season, with Sterling failing to maintain consistency for the remainder of the 2016/17 campaign as City struggled to a third placed finish in the Premier League.
