  • Manchester City went back to the top of the Premier League with an efficient 3-2 victory at Swansea. The visitors scored at key moments in the game but were never able to totally subdue the challenge of a determined Swans side. While Manchester City's home record this season is formidable, on the road they have been vulnerable but they are now unbeaten in their last four away games - winning three of them - and that is bad news for their title rivals.

  • Manchester City substitute James Milner is booked for a foul.

  • Bony picks the ball up from Lamah and with very little backlift sends a swerving shot from 20 yards past the depairing Hart and into the bottom corner.

  • GOAL! Bony rifles in his second goal to give the Swans a lifeline.

  • We will have a minimum of three minutes added time.

  • Milner gets to the by-line and pulls the ball back but no visiting player can get on the end of it.

  • The rain has nmever let up in this second half so credit for both sides for not allowing the tricky conditions to be an issue.

  • Jack Rodwell replaces Jesus Navas as Manchester City make their final change.

  • Good work by Milner sees him get in a cross but Swansea clear the danger.

  • City once more are content to knock the ball around as the clock ticks down.

  • No need at all for Zabaleta to have even made the tackle, let alone it being so late with the ball already out of play.

  • Zabaleta is booked for a needless foul on Lamah.

  • Hart has to be quick off his line to clear the ball ahead of Routledge.

  • Home fans are beginning to head for the exits as they obviously feel their side are not going to get back into this.

  • Pellegrini ignores the torrential rain to patrol his technical area and he must be delighted with this display.

  • Swansea make a change with Shelvey replaced by Alejandro Pozuelo.

  • Toure protests his innocence after being penalised for a foul on Flores and once more the atmosphere is very subdued.

  • The visitors are obviously content with what they have got and are keeping possession with plenty of confidence as you would expect from a side about to go back top of the Premier League.

  • Dzeko creates a shooting opportunity on the edge of the box but his shot is again blocked by Williams.

  • The impressive Kolarov has been much tighter on Routledge after the break, following the home winger's lively first half.
