Carlos Tevez played a role in all three goals as defending champion Manchester City beat Queens Park Rangers 3-1 on Saturday in the Premier League. Yaya Toure opened the scoring in the 16th minute with a strong left-foot strike after Tevez' angled shot was blocked. QPR equalized in the 59th against the run of play after City goalkeeper Joe Hart saved a powerful drive from Andy Johnson but Bobby Zamora reacted far quicker than the City defense to head in the ball from close range. Argentina international Tevez helped put City ahead again in less than three minutes, with Edin Dzeko heading in a pinpoint cross. Dzeko returned the favor in stoppage time when the Bosnian striker's shot, which was going wide, was deflected in by Tevez.
