Owen Hargreaves scored on his Manchester City debut as the Blues beat holders Birmingham 2-0 to claim a place in the Carling Cup fourth round.

The midfielder drove home from 25 yards after only 18 minutes, netting for the first time since April 2008 after virtually three full seasons on the sidelines.

Mario Balotelli added another before the break to get off the mark for the season, with Kolo Toure, returning from a drugs ban, clearing the visitors' best chance, a Curtis Davies overhead kick, off the line.
