London: Edin Dzeko ensured that Manchester City kept pace with Manchester United at the top of the Premier League with a late winner in a 2-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

As was the case with United's win at Aston Villa the day before, City had to come from behind to secure a late win and stay within two points of the leaders after Sergio Aguero cancelled out Steven Caulker's opener for Tottenham.

The result extended City's remarkable unbeaten home record in the Premier League to 35 games -- a sequence dating back nearly two years.
