Match Highlights View More Below

Frank Lampard climbed off the bench to ensure City made a winning start to 2015 after Sunderland had come from two goals down to level the scores late on.

After a dour first-half, the match exploded into life after the break with Yaya Toure and Stevan Jovetic appearing to have sealed the points – only for ex-Blues Jack Rodwell and Adam Johnson to score twice in three minutes.

But super sub Lampard had the last laugh with a rare headed goal on 73 minutes to give the hosts a precious 3-2 win and begin the New Year with three points.
