Manchester city has not lost all friendly games this preseason. They lost only in Asia trophy after being beaten by Wolverhampton wanderers. 

Manchester City ended pre-season with victory as goals from Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Lukas Nmecha gave them a 3-1 win over Yokohama Marinos.

The Premier League champions dominated the opening exchanges at the Nissan Stadium and were rewarded with a strike from Kevin De Bruyne after 19 minutes, the Belgian lashing home from the edge of the area after a long clearance from Claudio Bravo had released Bernardo Silva.

City's opener was quickly cancelled out as Yokohama responded immediately; Bravo twice saved as the hosts broke into the City box but the Chilean could do nothing about the second rebound as Keita Endo turned in from close range.

The second was not long in coming, however, with Sterling racing onto a fine through-ball from De Bruyne and finishing coolly, making it 2-1 at the break.

Nmecha rounded off a decent pre-season by bundling home a late third from Adrian Bernabe's low cross from the right.
