Man of the match: Edin Dzeko

After a thoroughly dominating performance against Newcastle, here are some of the highlights from the post-game interviews with our players and manager.

From Sergio Aguero (via his twitter account @aguerosergiokun):

"I really wanted to play again and doing it like this, with the team winning, a goal, and so much support from @MCFC people even better!"

"And I want to dedicate the goal to the national squad and @MCFC medical team that made everything possible for recovering from my injury."

Here's some of the immediate react from our new manager.

On Edin Dzeko:

"I trust Edin Dzeko, it was a pity he didn't score because he had a lot of chances and he played very well. We knew with the ball that he's a very good player but I think he played very well without the ball tonight. He had some important chances and deserved to score today. I spoke to him when I first arrived and I told him that he will do very well for us. I am sure we are now going to see the Edin Dzeko that City bought from Wolfsburg two years ago."

On the match:

"The most pleasing aspect was the way the team played for 90 minutes, from the beginning the attitude was aggressive and we continued to play that way for the whole match. It's a very good start, but I was very confident that the team would play well, we worked very hard during pre-season, we were trying another style of football and maybe we must continue to improve but for the first match, it was good."

New signings:

"We are also very happy with both of the new players. Navas and Fernandinho played very well - Navas is always running and trying to make important passes inside the area. Fernandinho does a lot of work without the ball and he did well - I'm sure when Jovetic and Negredo come in and play 90 minutes they will do very well too."

Kompany's injury:

"We will see what happens with Vincent tomorrow - the doctors will look and then we will find out how many days he may miss. I can't tell you exactly what happened. It may be a serious injury, it may be nothing - I don't know."
