Manchester City again splashed the cash on transfer deadline day but it was old hands Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez who secured a 3-1 Premier League victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Tevez played a role in all three goals albeit perhaps accidentally in the third one.

Ivorian Toure fired City, who memorably needed two stoppage-time goals on the final day of the season against Rangers in May to win the top-flight title for the first time since 1968, ahead at Eastlands.

QPR equalised in the 59th against the run of play after City goalkeeper Joe Hart saved a powerful drive from Andy Johnson but Bobby Zamora reacted far quicker than the City defense to head in the ball from close range.

The hosts needed Dzeko's header on 61 minutes, which quickly cancelled out Zamora's equaliser, to restore control.

Tevez sealed the points in stoppage time when Dzeko shot wide and the ball bumped off the Argentinean to sink a new-look Rangers.

Abu Dhabi-owned City, the world's richest club, spent more than $58.77 million in the final 24 hours ofthe transfer window, bringing in Javi Garcia, Matija Nastasic, Scott Sinclair and Maicon on Thursday and Friday.

None of the quartet figured on Saturday as Roberto Mancini's side moved up to fourth in the table.
