Platt says Man City management satisfied with victory over Stoke

Manchester City assistant coach David Platt says they were satisfied with their 3-0 win over Stoke City.

City dominated from the outset at the Etihad Stadium and although they were made to wait until the 43rd minute for Pablo Zabaleta's opener, the result was rarely in doubt.

Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero, from the penalty spot, wrapped up the routine success after the break.

Platt, the first-team coach, said: "We're happy with the result and performance.

"I think the goal just before half-time was more than deserved.

"But it doesn't make the second half any easier - you've still got to go out and play, but it just settles you down a bit without the clock running against you.

"They have shown all season it is hard to score goals against them."
