A well taken goal from Edin Dzeko moments from time ensured Manchester City would keep pace in the title race with a 2-1 win over Tottenham.
Manchester City were lacklustre in the first half, Tottenham took the lead as City poorly defended a set piece, an unmarked Steven Caulker headed it past a Hart. It came in a similar style to what both Ajax goals did, again poor picking up from Manchester City on zonal defence. Despite Tottenham taking the lead in the first half, Manchester City did dominate for some part, however they were ineffective in front of goal.
With the threat of losing their unbeaten home record stretching back to 2010, City came out all guns blazing with Aguero, Tevez and Silva trying to cause problems for Spurs defence that began to shake. Eventually City got level, Aguero slipped it past Friedel for his first goal in over a month in the Premier League. As the second half wore noise levels in the Etihad rose and the more Tottenham were becoming rushed. Friedel made some fantastic saves to keep the scores level, while Tottenham only real strike on goal was a power-driver over by Gareth Bale.
The break finally came with three minutes to go till the ninety, Edin Dzeko kept onside and kept his composure lifting the shot past Friedel who could only watch as it hit the back of the net. The win ensured City would carry on their unbeaten home record, while Tottenham have suffered back to back defeats.
