Match Highlights View More Below

City equalled the Premier League record for successive home wins with a 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium.

A goal in each half from Gael Clichy and Mario Balotelli was enough to end the visitors’ stubborn resistance and gave the Blues a nineteenth home victory on the bounce.

The Blues also struck the woodwork twice and missed numerous chances as they once again went five points clear ahead of the Spurs v United clash on Sunday.

Roberto Mancini chose to leave out David Silva and Sergio Aguero from the starting line-up and Nigel de Jong was rested with the midweek trip to Sporting Lisbon to take into consideration. Micah Richards was the only absentee with injury.
