Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez struck as a dominant but wasteful Manchester City narrowly saw off QPR 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium once again.
Sixteen weeks after the dramatic season finale that saw City crowned Barclays Premier League champions at the same ground, the hosts survived another scare against the side managed by their former boss, Mark Hughes.
Despite creating a multitude of chances, City needed a quick response from Dzeko after Bobby Zamora cancelled out Toure's effort but Tevez made the scoreline more convincing in injury time.
