Manchester City fullback Gael Clichy feels they turned on the style to defeat Newcastle United.

The Frenchman was part of the 4-0 rout.

Clichy said: "When you play for a team like City you always want the three points.

"The ideal game is to play attractive football, score goals and create chances but at the end of the day the most important thing is three points.

"On Monday night we did that, with the way we played as well. We can be happy with the result.

"It was a good performance defensively and offensively and hopefully we can carry on like this. It was a great game. Away from home it will be more difficult but it is a good way of starting the season.

"We are going to play like this (in approach) from today to the last game."
