City’s first outing since being crowned Premier League champions two months ago fell flat in the mountains of Austria.

In the shadows of the imposing Alps that surround the pristine and pretty Tivoli Neu in Innsbruck, the Blues, who used 24 players during the game, tumbled to defeat to top Saudi Side Al Hilal.

Roberto Mancini sprinkled some stardust on the occasion by picking Carlos Tevez, Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Aleks Kolarov and Adam Johnson – recovered from a virus that kept him in bed for the previous 24 hours – in his starting eleven.

Israeli triallist Nir Biton and teenager Marco Lopes were also included.
