MANCHESTER, England(AP) Manchester City maintained its dominant start to the Premier League season with a 5-1 rout of Norwich on Saturday.

Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri and Yaya Toure had put City comfortably ahead 3-0 by the 68th minute, before Steve Morison pulled one back with 10 minutes remaining.

Mario Balotelli and Adam Johnson then added goals in the final minutes as Roberto Mancini's recorded its 12th victory in 14 league matches.

The visitors' resistance was broken when Aguero prodded in his 11th goal in 13 league starts with just over half an hour gone.

Nasri produced one of his best performances since joining City from Arsenal in the offseason and added the second when Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy somehow allowed the Frenchman's free kick to beat him.
