New Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini enjoyed the perfect Premier League start as City trashed a very average Newcastle United team.

Goals from David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri crowned a perfect start for the Chilean boss, who replaced Roberto Mancini in the summer.

“I’m very happy, not only because we won but the way we played – that was the most important thing,” he told the Press conference.
“We played as an aggressive team without the ball and that’s important if we want to be an offensive team.”

The new boss has spent £86.9m already on players Jesus Navas, Fernandinho, Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic.

“Jesus Navas played very wide, he is very dangerous with his crosses inside the area and Fernandinho played for 90 minutes with and without the ball. I am very happy with both of them.

“Negredo, you will see what a great player both he and Stevan Jovetic, It’s a pity that Dzeko didn’t score, he had some clear chances but I think the same thing about my team; he worked hard with and without the ball and I’m sure he will score a lot of goals this season.”

Bosnian Dzeko said:

“The new manager brings something different to us, especially to me. He gives me confidence and that’s what I needed.”
