Resilience has become a byword for this City side and it was there for all to see in Norfolk.

For an amazing tenth time in succession after losing a Premier League match the Blues bounced back with a three point haul. Roberto Mancini’s side now hasn’t lost two on the trot in the main domestic competition since October 2010.

There were many waiting to write off the champions title defence after they marked the half-way point of the season with a less than appetising Boxing Day reverse to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

But the Blues keep showing the steely determination that vaulted them over United and into the crown last May and it was never more evident than in this crazy contest in which they went two up inside five minutes, had a man sent off, three times conceded a goal at set-pieces and still won the match.
