City recorded their first pre-season victory with a 1-0 win over South China in Hong Kong.

Despite an appalling playing surface due to incessant rain, Edin Dzeko headed home James Milner’s superb cross on 21 minutes to settle the second Barclays Asia Trophy semi-final and the Blues will now face Sunderland in Saturday’s final.

There was an impressive second-half cameo from Alvaro Negredo, too, with the Spain international almost scoring with a spectacular scissor kick before playing an excellent ball through to Dzeko during an impressive 25 minutes.

The former Sevilla man looks made for the Premier League with his pace and power adding a new dimension to the Blues attack.
