    Carlos Tevez inspired Manchester City to a 3-1 over Queens Park Rangers Saturday to mark manager Roberto Mancini's 100th English Premier League match in charge of the reigning champions.
    Bobby Zamora's second half equalizer for QPR briefly put the visitors on course for an unlikely point at the Etihad Stadium until Tevez quickly intervened.
    The Argentina star, his relationship with Mancini now on a firm footing after last season's problems, crossed for Edin Dzeko to put City 2-1 ahead.
    Tevez, who has been in fine form at the start of the EPL season, then rounded off the scoring when he deflected in a Dzeko shot which was going wide.
    Yaya Toure had given the home side a 16th minute lead as he scored following a corner, but QPR, managed by former City boss Mark Hughes, hit back when England goalkeeper Joe Hart could only fend away an Andy Johnson shot and Zamora headed home.
