Man City drops top spot

12 March 2012, 11:23

Swansea - Manchester City lost their top spot in the Premier League to rivals Manchester United after a shock 1-0 defeat at Swansea on Sunday.

Luke Moore scored with a powerful close-range header for the Welsh side in the 83rd minute as City, unbeaten in the league at home, lost their fourth away match this season.

Manchester United beat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 to move first - one point ahead of City.

City's Micah Richards had a goal called back for offside in the dying minutes of the game at the Liberty Stadium.

Joe Hart saved a penalty from Scott Sinclair in the 7th minute after the England goalkeeper was judged to have brought down Wayne Routledge.

Yaya Toure was caught in possession by Gylfi Sigurdsson and Swansea coolly put Routledge down the right to deliver a cross that Moore headed beyond Hart's despairing dive.The goal triggered all-out attack from City and Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm made an acrobatic save to deny a Kolo Toure effort.

City thought they had salvaged a point when Richards headed in as Vorm came and failed to reach a cross, but the fullback was ruled offside.

Sinclair almost added a second in added time as Swansea broke after Hart had gone up for a corner, but his strike from halfway came up short of the line as the keeper recovered.
