Man City back on top after frantic finish
City, protecting the best home record in the league, joined Leicester on 32 points.
LONDON - Manchester City clambered back to the top of the Premier League on Saturday after late drama at the Etihad Stadium and a deflected Yaya Toure shot earned them a stoppage-time winner in a 2-1 victory over Swansea City.
Managerless Swansea, playing above themselves, had equalised deservedly in the last minute through Bafetimbi Gomis after Wilfried Bony's first half headed goal against his old side had put City ahead.
Yet just when it seemed City had blown the chance to overhaul Leicester City on goal difference at the top of the table, a 92nd-minute left-footed strike from Toure took a cruel deflection off the back of his team mate Kelechi Iheanacho to give them victory.
City, protecting the best home record in the league, joined Leicester on 32 points, although Claudio Ranieri's men have the chance to regain the lead in Monday's game with Chelsea.
Crystal Palace continued their best start to a Premier League season with Yohan Cabaye's goal earning them a 1-0 win over Southampton and elevating them to sixth in the table, just six points off the lead.
Odion Ighalo's 10th goal of the campaign for Watford consigned Sunderland to yet another defeat, a 1-0 home loss leaving the north-east club still languishing in penultimate place on 12 points.
Romelu Lukaku is another marksman in rampant form, Everton's Belgian striker scoring for a sixth successive league game to give the Merseysiders an early lead in a 1-1 draw at Norwich City. Wes Hoolahan equalised for the struggling Canaries.
West Ham United, eighth, and Stoke City, 11th, missed the chance to close in on the leaders as they fought out a dull goalless draw at Upton Park.
