THIS INTRIGUING PREMIER League title run-in took yet another twist tonight with Manchester City dropping points at home to relegation-threatened Sunderland.

Beaten 3-2 at Liverpool on Sunday, City were bidding to close to within four points of Brendan Rodgers’s side in the first of their two games in hand.

It could have been even worse for Manuel Pellegrini’s side however. They took the lead at Eastlands through Fernandinho in the first half but fell behind to a Connor Wickham brace.

However, with two minutes to go Vito Mannone spilled Samir Nasri’s shot into the net.

The result left City six points below Liverpool in third place and although Manuel Pellegrini’s side still have a game in hand, the title is inching ever closer to Anfield.
