MANCHESTER CITY PUT in a commanding performance to down Milan 5-1 in Pittsburgh tonight.

A Stevan Jovetic brace, along with goals from Scott Sinclair, Jesus Navas and Kelechi Iheanacho saw the Premier League champions to a comfortable victory at Heinz Field in the International Champions Cup.

City were two goals to the good after just 14 minutes courtesy of goals from Jovetic and Sinclair.

Things got worse for new Milan coach Filippo Inzaghi courtesy of two more quick-fire goals from Navas and Iheanacho before the half-hour mark.

A ragged Milan side were able to pull a goal back before the interval through Sulley Muntari before heavy rain and thunderstorms delayed the start of the second half.

After the break, Jovetic doubled his tally for the match in the 58th minute to cap a fine performance.

The result made it two defeats from as many games for Milan in the International Champions Cup, while Italy’s three clubs involved in the United States-based tournament have registered three defeats and one win from four fixtures.
