Manchester City ease to 3-0 win over Stoke

Manchester City 3 – Stoke 0 (Premier League, January 1, 2013) (High quality highlights & MOTD highlights.) City broke the deadlock just before the break when Pablo Zabaleta sidefooted home from 8-yards after a Milner’s pull-back fell into his path. City doubled their advantage in the 57th minute through red-hot Edin Dzeko, however the Bosnian’s moment was spoiled when he was booked for revealing a ‘Happy New Year’ t-shirt. City won a 73rd minute penalty when Silva was tripped by N’Zonzi and Sergio Aguero scored from the spot.
