    Time:90'
    • Malaysia All-Stars
    • Manchester City
    • 90' FULL TIME. City win 3-1 in Kuala Lumpur, but they'll be disappointed to concede to what was Malaysia All-Stars only attack of purpose in the match. But it's another good display by City.
    • 88' That's the first time City have conceded in four games.
    • 86' Not Zabaleta's finest moment, as that goal raised the roof in Kuala Lumpur.
    • 85' GOAL! Akil scores for Malaysia All-Stars! The hosts have a consolation as Akil motors past Zabaleta and drills a low effort past Johansen.
    • 83' Lopes makes a very strong run forward and has the fearful Malaysia defence backing off. Lopes opts to thread the ball through to Suarez - but overhits it. Should have shot.
    • 80' City far more disjointed now, but a chance falls to Johnson, who cuts in from the right and fires a few feet over. Some real venom on that shot, but Johnson had options.
    • 78' Safiq has not dazzled for Malaysia as he did against Arsenal. Started well, but overrun in midfield.
    • 77' City have now used all six of their substitutes.
    • 75' Triple City change: Johansen, Boyata & Mancini ON, Pantilimon, Kolo Toure & Tevez OFF.
    • 73' George Evans has been impressive since coming on for City. His passing range is excellent.
    • 71' The game has certainly lost some of it's rhythm since the host of second-half changes.
    • 69' City sub: Lopes ON, Aguero OFF.
    • 67' Almost a fourth for Cityb as Tevez bursts down the right and fires a low cross into the six-yard area towards Aguero - but Malaysia somewhat desperately hack it clear.
    • 65' City sub: Evans ON, Razak OFF.
    • 63' All a bit flat in Kuala Lumpur, as Malaysia are engaged in a damage limitation exercise. They have never threatened tonight.
    • 61' Tevez tries to thread the ball through the Malaysia defence to Johnson, but the hosts have enough bodies on the edge of their box to intercept it.
    • 59' Malaysia make a rare foray forward, but the move goes flat as Baddrol fires wide.
    • 57' City sub: Scapuzzi ON, Yaya Toure OFF.
    • 56' Tevez uses Johnson's run as a decoy to create space 12 yards out, but he fires wide.
    • 54' There's the potential for a demolition here tonight. City look like scoring every time they go forward (which is every time they get the ball).
    • 53' City absolutely cruising here.
    • 52' GOAL! Johnson makes it 3-0! Aguero the architect yet again as he lifts the ball over the defence to Johnson, who takes a touch and fires low into the corner.
    • 50' Malaysia seeing far more of the ball at the moment, but City have been ruthless on the counter-attack tonight.
    • 49' Malaysia didn't want to start the half like that, but 2-0 is no more than City deserve at this stage.
    • 48' GOAL! Tevez makes it 2-0! Oh so simple for City as Aguero puts Tevez clean through with a perfect pass, and Tevez finishes first time with his left foot into the far corner.
    • 46' SECOND HALF. Malaysia get the second half underway.
    • HT Interestingly, Roberto Mancini is playing a back three for the second consecutive game tonight. Could that suggest he testing out a new formation to accommodate Daniele De Rossi, who has been linked with City? Let me know on Twitter
    • HT It was a moment of pure inspiration from Sergio Aguero that gives City their lead, with he and Carlos Tevez linking superbly well throughout.
    • 45' HALF TIME. It's Malaysia All-Stars 0-1 Manchester City at the break - but that scoreline doesn't reflect what has been a half of pure dominance by City.
    • 45' All-Stars sub: Jasuli ON, Azmi OFF.
    • 44' City are almost playing at walking pace at the moment. Very little pressure being put on them by the hosts, who look a little ragged.
    • 43' Yaya at the heart of everything at the moment. This time he sets up Tevez, who swivels quickly but drags his shot wide.
    • 41' Yaya Toure lets fly from 30 yards - but his effort is charged down at source and ricochets over the bar.
    • 39' City are looking very good on the counter-attack today. Yaya leads the break this time, but just puts a bit too much on his pass to Aguero and the chance is gone.
    • 37' Malaysia win a free-kick on the left, 25 yards out, but Safiq can only find the one-man wall.
    • 35' Johnson swings in City's first corner of the game - but Farizal takes it well under pressure from Yaya.
    • 34' Yaya Toure goes for goal from a long way out - but it's tame in the end.
    • 33' Robbat picks up a yellow for a foul on Suarez.
    • 31' Tevez is booked for a late tackle.
    • 30' City have a penalty shout. Aguero cushions a beautiful pass into Kolarov's path - and the Serbian goes down.
    • 28' Tevez gets into a good position but Bunyamin comes across to deal with the danger - but Tevez fouls him.
    • 26' Big chance for City and it's Aguero and Tevez combining again. This time Aguero clips a beautiful ball over the Malaysia defence to Tevez, whose left-foot volley flies just wide.
    • 24' Malaysia seeing a bit more of the ball at the moment, but the move ends as Safiq clips a hopeful cross straight into Pantilimon's arms.
    • 23' Suarez gives the ball away in his own half, but sprints back to attone for his error.
    • 21' City have enjoyed a remarkable 70% possession so far.
    • 19' Kolarov motors down the left and cuts the ball back to Johnson, who evades a challenge on the edge of the box before firing just a few inches over.
    • 18' That goal has looked likely since the first whistle - and City are already pushing for a second.
    • 16' GOAL! What a goal by Aguero! City work the ball infield from the left via Kolarov and Tevez. Aguero eventually receives it on the edge of the box and skips past one, two and then a third challenge before lifting the ball over the advancing goalkeeper with the outside of his right foot. Stunning goal.
    • 15' Aguero cuts in from the left and manages to get his shot away - but Farizal palms the ball away.
    • 13' Johnson skips in from the right and finds Tevez, who plays it back to Johnson. The England man then tries to beat his man, rather than deliver and early cross for Aguero - and the chance is gone.
    • 12' Razak catches Safee late - and play stops while he receives treatment.
    • 11' Suarez drives down the right and plays it infield to Tevez, who plays it straight back to Suarez - but the young Spaniard just drags his shot wide of the far post.
    • 9' Wave after wave of City attack here. Malaysia struggling to tread water.
    • 8' Aguero hits the bar! Yaya makes a lovely run and slides in Tevez, who rounds the keeper. Aguero takes over but strikes it against the bar with the goal gaping. Aguero should score.
    • 7' Malaysia give the ball away on the edge of the box, but Aguero strikes it straight at Farizal.
    • 6' City put the ball into the net, but it's flagged offside. Suarez slips in Aguero - but the Argentine is off.
    • 5' The resulting free-kick is drilled under the City wall, but gathered well by Pantilimon.
    • 4' No further punishment for Pantilimon, who would have been at least booked in a competitive fixture.
    • 3' A long ball forward by the All-Stars is spotted by Pantilimon, but the keeper handles it outside of his box - and the All-Stars have a free kick 20 yards from goal.
    • 2' City, who haven't conceded a goal in their last three pre-season games, are shooting from left to right - and it's the Premier League champions that have started strongest here.
    • 1' KICK OFF. City, in maroon, get us underway.
    • 14.44 Can the All-Stars stun City? Or will City run out easy winners? Let me know on Twitter
    • 14.43 Malaysia All-Stars XI: Farizal, Subramaniam, Aidil, Bunyamin, Azmi, Baddrol, Gary, Safiq, Kunanlan, Norshahrul, Safee /// Manchester City XI: Pantilimon, Kolarov, Zabaleta, Savic, Kolo, Yaya (c), Johnson, Suarez, Razak, Tevez, Aguero.
    • 14.37 The All-Stars have been busy recently, facing Arsenal last week and almost securing a famous win. But two late goals - from Eisfeld and Aneke - earned the Gunners a 2-1 win.
    • 14.35 Hello everyone. Welcome to live coverage of this exhibition game between the Malaysia All-Stars and Manchester City.
