  • Man City 2 Tottenham 1. Spurs took the lead at the Etihad, but were unable to hang on to that advantage. Dzeko the hero for City again as he steps off the bench to net the winner.

  • City prepared to hammer the ball towards the corner flag, forcing Friedel to chase. He goes long with a goal kick, but the ball won't drop for Spurs. Naughton then has a tug at Clichy and that should be that.

  • Dempsey collects a loose ball, but can't bring the ball down or send it wide to Bale. City surge forward, with Toure still full of energy. He helps the Blues to win a corner. More time taken off the clock.

  • Dawson slips as he goes to clear. He's fortunate Kolarov wasn't closer to him. Clichy then plays a risky back-pass to Hart, but he puts his foot through the ball and finds touch.

  • Spurs need to hurry things up, but aren't helped by the fact they try to take a throw-in from the wrong place. Vertonghen with a hopeful punt down field.

  • Aguero trudges from the field to be replaced by Javi Garcia. Standing ovation for the Argentine striker, who takes an age to get off the pitch.

  • Five minutes of stoppage time to be played.

  • Defoe thinks he has won a corner off Clichy, but a goal kick is given. Hart in no rush to get the game restarted. City now prepared to run down the lock. Frustration for Villas-Boas on the sidelines. Defoe then tumbles under a Clichy challenge inside the biox, but gets nothing.

  • Dzeko with his sixth league goal of the season. He may not like the super sub tag, but he seems to suit him. Mancini won't want to change things if he keeps on scoring off the bench.

  • GOAL MAN CITY - DZEKO. Surely City have stolen all three points. Dezeko allowed to drift across the field and find Silva. He dinks the ball over the Spurs defence and Dezeko hooks a volley past Friedel.

  • Assistant has his flag in the air again, againsty Kolarov this time. Spurs change on the way, with Naughton sebnt on in place of Lennon.

  • Maicon with a decent cross from the right that Dawson has to nod clear. Aguero with another smart turn to find Silva. He in turn feeds Maicon, who drifts in field. A cross-shot comes to nothing.

  • Smart defending from Dawson, as he slams the door in Dzeko's face. He has no option, though, but to lump clear. Spurs win the ball back, with Vertonghen pushing well forward. Cluichy has all day to clear, but almost makes a mess of things.

  • Rapid counter from Bale, who pegs City back in their own half by winning a corner. Set-piece is played short. Spurs work the ball across the field to Sandro, but he sends a pass intended for Lennon out of play.

  • Lennon lets the ball run past him, and then slips. City back in possession. Maicon off and running down their right, but Caulker covers. Dzeko then with a clever flick to Aguero. His snap shot is beaten away by Friedel.

  • Better from Kolarov as he picks out Maicon from the corner. His glancing header is collected by Silva. Bale then forced to hack into the stands. Aguero somehow forces the ball into the path of Silva and he pokes an effort inches past the post.

  • Maicon skips past Vertonghen, but stands on the ball. He is good enough to go and get it back. City looking sharper. Aguero runs across the edge of the box, before finding Kolarov. His effort flicks off Gallas and into the side-netting.

  • Adebayor has run his race. Boos from the home support as he is replaced by Defoe.

  • Gallas has slotted in at right-back for Spurs, with Dawson alongside Caulker in the centre. First touch for Dawson sees him knock the ball behind. Silva ghosted in unnoticed and almost collected a Maicon cross. From the resutling corner, Dzeko glances narrowly wide.

  • Sandro chases back with Barry and wins a goal kick. Great play again from the Brazilian midfielder. Another change on the way as Dawson comes on in place of Walker.
