City were brought crashing back down to earth with a second-half defensive horror show against Cardiff.

The hosts recovered from going a goal down after the break to score three times - two coming from corners - as the Blues had their wings clipped by the Bluebirds.

Edin Dzeko's stunning goal after 52 minutes ultimately counted for nothing as Aron Gunnarrson and Frazier Campbell (2) exposed some slack marking by Manuel Pellegrini's men who will surely spend the majority of next week working on defending set-pieces.

Alvaro Negredo pulled a consolation goal back in added time, but the damage had already been done. What a difference a week makes.
