Manchester City took early hold of the contest through the first of David Silva's two goals. But the outcome was in doubt until Silva's second tally in the 69th minute allowed a frigid crowd at the Etihad to sigh in relief.

City had a number of chances to add to their goal differential, but insufficient efforts from Edin Dzeko (who struggled, in the main) and Sergio Aguero (back from injury for a ten-minute cameo) ultimately left City with its 2-0 win.
