Carlos Tevez scored his first Manchester City goal on as the big-spending Premier League side defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 in the second round of the English League Cup.

Joleon Lescott also made his City debut after his move from Everton, but City struggled to impose themselves on Championship side Palace in the first half.

Shaun Wright-Phillips settled City's nerves with the opening goal on 50 minutes before Tevez struck 20 minutes later to seal City's passage into the third round of the competition they last won in 1976 - their last major trophy.
