Pittsburgh, USA: English Premier League champions Manchester City cruised to a 5-1 triumph over Italy's AC Milan on Sunday in a weather-hit friendly at Heinz Field, home of the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers.

Manuel Pellegrini's men stormed into an early 2-0 lead thanks to strikes from Stevan Jovetic in the 11th minute and Scott Sinclair in the 14th, the two making the most of a Milan defense that struggled with Manchester City's pace down the right flank.

City continued to dominate and added a third as Jesus Navas's acrobatic effort from outside the area was deflected past helpless Milan goalkeeper Michael Agazzi in the 23rd minute. (Also read: City land five-year sponsor deal with Nissan)
