Bukayo Saka danced through the City backline to force a stop from Ederson as Arsenal sought a swift response, although Leno had to be alert to thwart Mahrez at his near post before the half hour and denied Foden after his defence played into trouble.
It was a game to busy both goalkeepers, with Ederson springing into action when Saka and then Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang burst into the City box.
Guardiola sent on Ilkay Gundogan, returning after a positive coronavirus test, in place of Aguero in an attempt to shore up midfield with Arsenal in the ascendancy after the break.
Nevertheless, free-kicks from David Luiz and Nicolas Pepe that did not trouble Ederson were the closest they came. On an increasingly rare foray forward, City wing-back Joao Cancelo almost forced David Luiz to prod into his own net.
In the end, Sterling's solitary strike would prove enough. Without his best centre-back and midfielder in Aymeric Laporte and Kevin De Bruyne, Guardiola had to seek creative solutions within a hybrid Kyle Walker, on the right of the back three, gave such close attention to Aubameyang before half-time that Arsenal's star forward was moved in-field from his usual berth on the left.
A dazzling array of attacking angles were created in the period either side of Sterling's goal, although the bookings accrued with varying degrees of desperation by Cancelo, Rodri, Nathan Ake and Ruben Dias showed City also had to get their hands dirty.
Our captain missed a glorious chance when he was put through by David Luiz, but made amends a few minutes later with a brilliantly-executed half-volley to steer Nicolas Pepe's cross past Ederson and in off the post.
That was the conclusion of a move that comprised 18 passes and 10 of our players. A true collective effort in keeping with the overall display.
Aubameyang was ruthless again with his only clear chance of the second half, racing onto a fine through-ball from the outstanding Kieran Tierney to finish confidently.
Shkodran Mustafi went close for us with a powerful header that Ederson tipped over but, as expected, City had most of the ball and more of the opportunities.
They dominated the first 15 minutes and we needed a string of vital blocks and clearances to keep Pep Guardiola's side at bay - with Granit Xhaka, David Luiz and Tierney to the fore.
City posed even more questions in the second half with Kevin De Bruyne doing plenty of damage after moving from the centre of midfield to the right.
