Pablo Zabaleta, Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero struck as Manchester City claimed a 3-0 win against Stoke.

The Barclays Premier League champions were rarely troubled as they eased to a convincing victory at the Etihad Stadium after Zabaleta opened the scoring late in the first half.

Dzeko tapped in for a second just before the hour and the lively Aguero added a third from the penalty spot 16 minutes from time.
