The result looks convincing but for some of the game the performance wasn’t. City took a 2-0 lead but were pegged back to 2-2, with the help of a Joe Hart error, but City managed to take control in the last 15 minutes and ran away with it. Daniele De Rossi also scored his first league goal for Manchester City. With this win, City also guaranteed their Champions League qualification for next season and assured they can only finish 2nd or 3rd.
Final Score – Queens Park Rangers 2 (Cisse 48, Zamora 57) Manchester City 5 (Aguero 32, De Rossi 38, Bale 61, Sinclair 81, 90+3)
