Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has praised his team for winning their Premier League opener away at Newcastle United this afternoon.

Goals either side of half-time, from David Silva (38th minute) and Sergio Aguero (90th minute) put Alan Pardew's men to the sword at St. James' Park.

In a game which saw both sides enjoy chances, Manchester City were clinical, grabbing the three points in the process.

And Dzeko was pleased to see the Citizens get the defence of their title off to a winning start.


"It's always good and important to start with a win. We knew this was going to be tough and we gave everything from the first minute and playing aggressively", he told Sky Sports.


"In the end it was a well-deserved win. First games can be tough but we did it. We have our first three points and we have to look game to game."

Manchester City, who lost the Community Shield to Arsenal 3-0 last weekend, next face Liverpool on 25th August.
