Assistant boss David Platt felt Manchester City had produced an emphatic response to their recent difficulties after crushing Sunderland 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

The Barclays Premier League champions were overrun in the latter stages of their midweek Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund but clung on to snatch a 1-1 draw. Coming after a series of less-than-convincing performances in domestic competition, and having failed to keep a clean sheet, that raised questions over City's durability.

But Platt felt all that had been banished as Aleksandar Kolarov, Sergio Aguero and James Milner struck in a one-sided win which ended the Black Cats unbeaten record, and he said: "Games go for us and against us and whenever on the back of a bad result, we always get a reaction from top players and that's what we got."
