Man City 7-1 Barnsley
Manchester City romped to their biggest win under Kevin Keegan after scoring five goals in the first half.

Joey Barton smashed home from 20 yards and Shaun Wright-Phillips set up Jon Macken and Willo Flood before delightfully chipping in himself.

Antoine Sibierski quickly restored the five-goal margin and sealed the rout after another Wright-Phillips pass.
