  • Full-time. That's the end of the game. A strange one as City dominated for long periods but only settled the match in stoppage time. A 3-1 win for the defending champions.

  • Goal! Late pressure from City and the ball comes to Dzeko in the right channel. He tries a shot with the outside of his boot and gets it very wrong... but it bounces off Tevez's outstretched foot and into the net! Game over.

    90+3
  • Kolarov crosses but the visitors clear.

    90+2
  • There will be five minutes of added time.

    90+1
  • Dzeko is fouled on the edge of the QPR area.

    90+1
  • Nasri is off and he is replaced by Razak.

    90
  • Johnson crosses from the left but Lescott clears.

    88
  • Hart hits it long for Dzeko but his header goes through to Green. City not closing this one out well.

    87
  • Milner tries to cut the ball back for Tevez but the pass is intercepted.

    86
  • Cisse on for Granero.

    85
  • Zamora booked for trying to pull down Tevez.

    85
  • The City crowd are surprisingly nervy. Maybe it's the players who are worrying them. They're trying to slow things down now.

    84
  • Bosingwa gives the ball away to Tevez and the ball comes out to Milner on the right. He has Dzeko free but his cross is poor and only finds Green.

    83
  • Mancini is trying to stop that. On comes Milner for Silva.

    82
  • Granero really enjoying the extra space in midfield as the game opens up more and more.

    82
  • More good pressure from QPR as Park and Zamora attempt a one-two inside the area. It comes out to Fabio but he wastes the ball. City players look tired now.

    80
  • Granero crosses and puts the ball between Lescott and Hart. It's close to Nelsen again but he cannot get there. Warning signs for the champions.

    78
  • Kompany has committed a foul just outside the left-edge of the area and it is another chance for QPR.

    78
  • Dzeko finds Tevez on the edge of the box but he is crowded out and QPR break.

    77
  • Granero crosses and finds Onuoha at the far post. He heads back across to Nelsen who tries to volley in but it is just wide. Great chance and if it had fallen to anyone else...
