Johnny On The Spot: Well, well. The Champions are back. And how. This was a breathtaking, mighty show of force from Manchester City. The Blues steamrollered Sunderland into submission with a solid, robust and hungry performance fuelled with a scintillating quick pass and move that reduced The Black Cats to paper kites in a wind tunnel such was the tenacity of City's approach...Martin O'Neill could have had no complaints had The Citizens clocked up double figures in the Manchester sunshine...Roberto Mancini's men have answered their myriad early season critics with an almighty, perfect riposte... Mancio's Ferrari is purring again. It's not easy to single out individuals for praise but Micah Richards, Aleksander Kolarov and Jimmy Milner enjoyed one of their finest one and half hours in Blue to date...We're back to not wanting a City game to end. West Brom, YOU are next.

Top performance! We looked very close to our best at times with Kolarov, Milner, Silva and Micah all putting in class performances. Micah is like a new signing - I was always looking forward to his return and he didn't disappoint

Roberto Mancini: "I think in the first half, we missed two or three chances like other games but we had a good performance. I think also in London against Fulham we did very well and against Stoke. Every game is difficult in this moment. I am happy because we got a clean sheet, scored three but also because of our performance. I hope that Kolarov can continue to score. I am happy with all players. You can only beat Sunderland if you play well, they have a strong squad. Mario worked a lot, he had a chance, I am happy with Mario. Mario played a good game, I think he can do better."

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill: "Eventually over the piece Man City deserved to win. When it was 1-0 we had a chance and just after the break we had an attacking threat, but overall they were much better and deserved to win the game. Citywere electric. They are fine players, champions of this country and playing big Champions League games. It was always the possibility if they got the second goal, they would cause havoc and that happened. If another 10 minutes went by they might get a bit nervy. You just have to take it, wait for international players came back and then prepare ourselves for Newcastle."
