Match Commentary

- "[There was] no pressure, I was calm. It was a penalty" - Mario Balotelli, post-match.
- "This a massive win. We knew it'd be a tough game and they're a very exciting team" - James Milner, post-match.
- There's no doubt about it - that's the sort of incident and result that can win a side the league title, and City now look more than likely than ever to do so.
