Fightback not good enough for City

Published Add your comment

Manchester City dropped two potentially vital points in the Barclays Premier League title race despite a rousing late fightback saw them claim a 3-3 draw against Sunderland.

Mario Balotelli's second goal of the afternoon and a powerful Aleksandar Kolarov strike inside the last five minutes at the Etihad Stadium earned City a draw but it was not enough to take them back top.

Sunderland had powered into a 3-1 lead with two goals from Sebastian Larsson and a fine header from Nicklas Bendtner.
