Wigan 0 - 2 Manchester City.

Summary: Carlos Tevez inspired Manchester City to shrug off their sluggish start to the season with a win over Wigan.

Carlos Tevez inspired Manchester City to shrug off their sluggish start to the season as Roberto Mancini's men were helped on their way by a pair of glaring defensive errors.

Superb Tevez struck City's opener out of nothing in the 43rd minute after Wigan defender Mohamed Diame back-headed a long goal kick from Joe Hart into his path.

And he set up Yaya Toure's first City goal after 73 minutes when he seized on a weak defensive header by Maynor Figueroa to cross for the Ivory Coast star to prod home.

Wigan keeper Ali Al Habsi had been a virtual spectator until Tevez hit his opener and the result was hard on Roberto Martinez's men who matched their opponents for long periods.

While their own chances were few and far between the same could be said for City who - Tevez apart - carried precious little threat in the final third of the field.
