Manchester: Manchester City returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a resounding bang on Saturday by demolishing strugglers Norwich City 7-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

City fell 2-1 at Chelsea last weekend, but they blew off the cobwebs with an unrelenting onslaught that catapulted the 2012 champions into the top four ahead of Tuesday's visit of CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

An unfortunate own goal by Bradley Johnson got the ball rolling in the 16th minute, with further goals from David Silva, Matija Nastasic and Alvaro Negredo putting City 4-0 up by the 36th minute.
