Mario Balotelli's stoppage time penalty gave Manchester City a priceless 3-2 Barclays Premier League win over Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium.

The visitors had battled back from two goals down, with Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale levelling efforts from Samir Nasri and Joleon Lescott.

But, after he got away with catching Scott Parker in the face with his boot, Balotelli kept his cool to find the net after he had been fouled by Ledley King.
