London: Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo suffered an injury scare as the Premier League champions won 2-1 in a friendly against Hearts on Friday.

Manuel Pellegrini's side were beaten by Dundee on Monday, but they secured the first win of their pre-season campaign thanks to Aleksandar Kolarov's late penalty at Tynecastle.

However, the result was overshadowed by an as yet unspecified injury to Negredo that forced the Spanish striker to limp off before half-time.
