  • Simple win for City then and Pellegrini couldn't have wished for a better start. Silva, Aguero, Toure & Nasri helped themselves to goals but it was Aguero and Dzeko up front who created real problems for Newcastle. Alan Pardew's men looked poor at most stages, which could be a worry for Geordies everywhere.

  • 3 minutes stoppage time at the Etihad, it's been so comfortable for City.

  • A corner creates all manner of havoc in the Newcastle penalty area and a great save from a header simply leaves the ball to rebound to Negredo who sweeps home. However, he's incorrectly called offside.

  • On comes Alvaro Negredo for his City debut, replacing David Silva.

  • The one blotch on City's night has possibly been the lack of goals for Dzeko. He's definitely deserved one, but another header goes just over.

  • A Dzeko dummy really shouldn't have found Nasri first, but it did. The Frenchman was a couple of yards behind the defender but he snares the ball in front of him and finishes well past Krul.

  • Stunning ball from Navas to Dzeko but unfortunately it bounces just out of the striker's stride and Debuchy recovers well.

  • The Belgian comes off to a rousing applause and is replaced by Javi Garcia in defence.

  • Worrying signs for City as Kompany tumbles over, looks like a possible groin problem.

  • The resulting corner finds the head of Dzeko, but he jumps a little too late and misjudges the header.

  • Navas is going to be trouble for a lot of defenders this season it seems. His run is marked by Silva but the cross is deflected out for another corner.

  • Final change for Newcastle as Sammy Ameobi will replace Hatem Ben Arfa.

  • A powerful low strike from Dzeko is well-saved by Krul. You've got to feel for the Dutchman out there, he's had a great game.

  • Absolutely comical defending from Newcastle as Fernandinho flicks an over-the-top ball into the area and four City players are onto it, with no defenders in sight. Somehow though, the strikers all endeavour to waste the opportunity.

  • Nasri replaces the excellent Aguero. Great shift from the striker.

  • The ball falls loose in Newcastle's penalty area and Gael Clichy is first onto it. The defender gears up to strike but it's defended well and out for a corner.

  • Navas looks dangerous down the right-hand side and his lightning turn of pace is creating huge problems for Newcastle, another cross goes just begging.

  • A lofted pass goes over the head of Newcastle's defence, unbeknownst to them a little Spaniard is on the end of it. Silva brings the ball down expertly but runs out of space.

  • And Toure takes it, curling it perfectly into the top corner. No chance for Krul and it's 3-0 City.

  • In the moments afterwards a free-kick was awarded to City about 20 yards out. Silva and Toure stood over it...
