Brilliant, fluent, irresistible and back to winning ways.

City dragged themselves off the floor following their derby despair to serve notice that the title race is a long way from over.

Yes there was some brittleness and vulnerability at St James’ Park but this was an excellent Blues performance. In short they did what champions do!

After weathering an early storm Sergio Aguero and Javi Garcia put Roberto Mancini’s men two up at the break. Ba pulled one back before Yaya Toure – again thriving in the North East air as he did last season – made the points safe.
