Premier League champions Manchester City beat Arsenal 2-0 in a pre-season friendly in Beijing on Friday afternoon.
In a fairly evenly contested first half, Andre Santos, Theo Walcott and Sergio Aguero went close before City took the lead just five minutes before the break when Zabaleta was on hand to fire home from 10 yards out after good work from Y. Toure.
Roberto Mancini’s side made it 2-0 just minutes later when Toure tapped home from close range after some slack Arsenal defending.
Despite the Gunners dominating the second half and creating several good opportunities, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho both going close, the Londoners couldn’t find a way past Pantilimon and City held on for a 2-0 win.
