City the comeback kings of Manchester

Manchester City are not just intent on preserving their status as Premier League top-dogs at Manchester United's expense, it seems they want to claim the title as comeback kings as well.

Less than 24 hours after United recovered from two goals down to win at Aston Villa, City battled back to a 2-1 win over Tottenham. And just as Javier Hernandez has become United's super-sub, so Edin Dzeko has done the same for City, scoring an 88th-minute winner after Sergio Aguero had levelled Steven Caulker's opener.

City coach David Platt is anxious for Dzeko not to get labelled super-sub, but admitted: "We can only pick 11 players. We have a lot of players who would play in almost any other Premier League team. Edin is one of those players."
