Fancy dress, fancy football, fancy that! 2013 kicked off in Champagne style at the Etihad Stadium.

A full house for the first home game of the New Year was treated to flashes of the vibrant and brilliant Manchester City that enjoyed such a stellar 2012.

This was a Blues side with purpose in its stride and intent in its attacks as they pounded the Potters goal from first to last.

Stoke didn’t manage an attempt on goal in the opening half though their stubborn resistance did last until the 42nd minute before Pablo Zabaleta eased home the opener after Asmir Begovic parried James Milner’s low shot.
