These two sides may look very different the next time they are in Premier League action but this game enjoyed a familiar scenario and the usual happy ending for the home side.

With four new faces either on the bench or on their way to Manchester in the next ten days or so and seemingly half a bus load heading for Loftus Road, Roberto Mancini and Mark Hughes will both soon have selection decisions to make.

The big difference of course is that, after the international break, Mancini will be going through the gears in pursuit of a second successive domestic title and training his sites on Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid in the interim. His City predecessor Mark Hughes will have less lofty ambitions.

Mancini will be plotting with seven points from a possible nine – a perfectly acceptable haul from the opening three games of the season.
