Man City care taker Brian Kidd lauded his side as they began their US friendly tour by coming down from three goals to nil to soar over their rivals Chelsea 4-3 on Thursday at St Louis.

City fell behind to Demba Ba, César Azpilicueta and Oscar goals despite dominating the first half but Javi Garcia began the fightback, Edin Dzeko struck twice and Micah Richards grabbed a late winner.

The two teams are in end of season international friendlies in the United States.

Kidd is temporarily in charge after Roberto Mancini who was fired one season after winning the English League title. Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini is the anticipated replacement while on the other side Jose Mourinho appears headed back for a stint as manager for Chelsea after failing out with Real Madrid.

There will be a second match between the two at New York's Yankee Stadium
