What happened?

City beat Burnley 2-1 in a feisty Lancashire derby at the Etihad that saw the Blues reduced to 10 men in the first half.

The Blues lost skipper Fernandinho on 32 minutes but fought back to score twice after the break in a hotly-contested affair.

The Blues climb back into third spot but are now only two points adrift of Liverpool who surprisingly drew 2-2 at Sunderland – at least for 24 hours with Arsenal and Spurs in action tomorrow.

Liverpool’s point keeps them second with Chelsea away to Tottenham on Tuesday evening – for now, the gap to the leaders is back to seven points.
