Sunderland striker Darren Bent made Carlos Tevez pay for a glaring miss as his injury-time penalty saw off big-spending Manchester City in a 1-0 victory.

Bent scored his fourth goal of the season from the penalty spot four minutes into stoppage time after being brought down by Micah Richards.

But City should really have been ahead when Tevez skied over an open goal after being played in by Yaya Toure with just 16 minutes gone.
