Samir Nasri claimed an 86th winner as City closed the gap on Manchester United to a point, with Carlos Tevez making a substitute appearance for the home side, with the Argentine having now patched up his differences with Roberto Mancini.
Meanwhile, there was also lots of drama at Loftus Road where Liverpool went into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Sebastian Coates and Dirk Kuyt, although Queens Park Rangers rallied to pull off an amazing 3-2 victory.
Shaun Derry started the comeback in the 77th minute and Djibril Cisse scored against his former club to level the scoreline, while Jamie Mackie was in the right place to score a 90th minute winner which could just mark a crucial turning point for QPR.
Tottenham Hotspur’s poor run of form continued and they needed a late Rafael Van der Vaart goal to land a point at home to Stoke City, while Thomas Vermaelen scored the only goal of the game to ensure Arsenal continued their excellent recent form.
Wednesday night scores
