Manchester City outclassed Newcastle United to an impressive 4-0 victory.
Carlos Tevez opened the scoring four minutes before half-time with a well taken goal.
City scored their second in first-half injury-time, when David Silva finished well past Elliot after a good ball from Nasri.
But City hit the all-important third goal on 56 minutes when Vincent Kompany scored on his return to the side after a two-month injury lay-off.
City completed the scoring in the 69th minute when Yaya Toure tanked his way past three men on the right-hand side of the box, and his shot deflected off James Perch and beat Elliot at the near post.
