Match Highlights View More Below

City’s preparations for the new season continued in fine style when they beat Inter Milan in Dublin on Sunday afternoon.

Goals just either side of half time  from Balotelli and Dzeko put City ahead, and Adam Johnson added a third at the death, but David Silva pulled the strings with a superb display. The win also gave City the Dublin Super Cup

Roberto Mancini’s team selection indicated a serious approach to the game, with more than one eye on being in the right place for next week’s Community Shield derby at Wembley. Not surprisingly it was a completely different starting eleven to the one that had walked out to face the Airtricity Irish XI just over 24 hours earlier.

There was a welcome return for Yaya Toure after the worrying ankle injury that had blighted his North American tour, but Gael Clichy missed out because of the after-effects of the blow to the head he took in LA and there was to be no role for Sergio Aguero.
