Match Highlights View More Below

City have set a Premier League record and sent a powerful message to all their rivals.

Late goals from Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri reduced the gap at the summit between Roberto Mancini’s men and neighbours United to a single point.

Amazingly this was a 20th consecutive home win for the Blues. It is the first time that any Premier League side has achieved that feat and City become only the fourth side in top-flight history to achieve it following Liverpool in 1972, Newcastle in 1906-07and Preston North End in 1891-92.

And it proved, if proof were needed, that the men in Blue will not bottle this title race.
