Dries Mertens used a deft touch to spring Insigne on Ederson, and the diminutive Italian pushed the ball beyond the keeper’s reach to make it 1-0.
Man City leveled with 15 minutes, as Otamendi leapt higher than a trio of his teammates to head Ilkay Gundogan’s cross home from the back post.
City took its first lead early in the second half, with Leroy Sane’s cross meeting John Stones’ noggin. The bar-down attempt just crossed the line, and the visitors were in the driver’s seat.
Jorginho leveled with a penalty, which Sane conceded with a foul on Raul Albiol.
But City would rebound well, with Aguero finishing a second half chance before Sterling put the cherry on top via a Kevin De Bruyne feed.
