Edin Dzeko’s 50th City goal propelled the Blues to the top of the Premier League for the first time this season.

His 66th minute strike added lustre to a perfect domestic home record under boss Manual Pellegrini and inched the Blues closer to the record for scoring in consecutive EPL matches on their home ground.

The powerfully hit winner ended more than an hour of frustration at the Etihad during which Joe Hart was the busier – and more bruised – of the goalkeepers. He was named man of the match and justifiably so.

Dzeko slotted home with authority and precision after Damien Delaney had headed Samir Nasri’s cross straight to Jesus Navas. The Spain winger picked out the Bosnian with unerring accuracy.
