Match Highlights View More Below

City’s title aspirations took a severe blow as substitute Luke Moore scored a late winner to give Swansea a 1-0 win and all three points - despite Joe Hart saving an early penalty.

Micah Richards also had a late goal controversially disallowed for offside on a day the Blues, far from their best, will want to forget in a hurry.

City have now dropped behind neighbours United in the race to win the Premier League, though hopefully there are plenty of twists and turns to come - and the fact remains that if the Blues were to win their remaining matches, the title would be coming back to the Etihad Stadium.

City arrived in South Wales on the back of four successive Premier League wins on the bounce but were up against one of the meanest home defences in the top-flight with Swansea the next best after the Blues having conceded just ten goals in 13 home games.
