  1. Manchester City wIn the Asia Trophy as Dzeko's spectacular strike earns a 1-0 victory over Premier League rivals Sunderland. Stay with us for the full match report and reaction from players and managers.

  2. 90


  3. 89

    Sessegnon is the man to come off for Mandron.

  4. 88

    Navas does superbly well down the right and shows his speed before crossing to Dzeko but the Bosnian cannot quite prod a finish.

  5. 86

    Sunderland are ready to send on Mandron for the final minutes.

  6. 84

    Larsson takes the free-kick low and past the wall but Pantilimon is alert and dives down to his right to palm the ball away.

  7. 83

    It is a chance for Sunderland as Lescott gives away a free-kick on the edge of the City box in a central position.

  8. 81

    The game is now limping towards its conclusion. City look happy with what they have got and the pitch means Sunderland are struggling to build any attacks.

  9. 79

    Negredo's game is over as he heads off to be replaced by Barry.

  10. 77

    Gardner to the rescue for Sunderland as he clears off the line from Navas after the City new boy had rolled the ball past Westwood. Good, covering defending from Gardner.

  11. 76

    Sunderland make another change as McClean comes on for Giaccherini.

  12. 75

    Nastasic is being stretchered off and replaced by Lescott. Nastasic looks like he has a serious problem and he could be another injury victim of this poor pitch.

  13. 72

    Sunderland have a claim for their own penalty when Kolarov challenges Giaccherini. But replays show Kolarov clearly got the ball.

  14. 70

    Sunderland win another corner in quick succession. Moberg Karlsson's delivery is deep to the far post and Pantilimon eventually claims. The goalkeeper did push Sessegnon a little bit.

  15. 69

    After being let off at the penalty, Sunderland now have a chance to equalise as Wickham bursts into the box. But Kolarov just sticks out a leg to poke the ball behind for a corner. City defend the set-piece.

  16. 67

    Dzeko is looking down at the pitch after his wretched penalty. The pitch cannot be completely blamed for that terrible effort.

  17. 66

    Dzeko has the chance to double his and City's goal tally for the game as he steps up for the penalty. But it is a shocking miss as he scoops the spot-kick high and woefully wide.

  18. Fernandinho flicked the ball up inside the box and Ba clearly handled it inside the area to give City the spot-kick.

  19. 64


  20. 62

    Fernandinho replaces Toure while Kolarov comes on for Clichy.
