Video highlights: Manchester City leave the Sunderland fearing the drop

Manchester City 1 – Sunderland 0 (Premier League, March 22, 2009) (MOTD highlights here.) City should have taken the lead at Eastlands when SWP went clean through only to put his effort wide. Sunderland were then reduced to 10-men when George McCartney was send off on the call on the linesman and it looked dire for the Black Cats when the Citizens then won a penalty, only for Fulop to save Robinho’s horror spot kick. (First half highlights here.) In the second half City finally took the lead with Micah Richards (who had an excellent match) heading home an Elano free-kick.
