City surrendered their unbeaten away record and ground in the title race as Sunderland got the better of them at the Stadium of Light.

It was the second time in succession in the Premier League that Roberto Mancini’s men have lost 1-0 on Wearside.

And it was old boy Adam Johnson who struck the killer blow squeezing a long range shot under Joe Hart eight minutes after the break.

The goal had more than a touch of controversy about it as it appeared that Pablo Zabaleta was fouled in the build-up by Craig Gardner.  Referee Friend proved no pal of the champions as he waved play on.
