Match Highlights View More Below

City were handed a crushing defeat with the very last kick of the game as Ji Dong-Won gave Sunderland a dramatic 1-0 win at the Stadium of Light deep into injury time.

The Blues dominated the match from start to finish and struck the bar twice, but just couldn’t find a way through the packed home defence to complete a miserable holiday period for the Premier League leaders who have now gone almost four hours without a goal.

Though City stay top, the chance to go three points clear went against a team who have now beaten the Blues twice in successive seasons with injury time goals on their own patch.

With a home game against Liverpool just 48 hours away Roberto Mancini made six changes to the side so frustratingly held at West Brom on Boxing Day.
