He scored City's only goal and was a threat all afternoon - every touch of Sergio Aguero's showing against Middlesbrough.
After a frustrating first half in which City dominated much of the play, Aguero finally found the back of the net to give City the lead.
Middlesbrough goalkeeper Victor Valdes had made several excellent saves by this point but was powerless to stop Aguero’s effort after the Argentinian latched on to an exquisite Kevin De Bruyne cross.
Despite City’s dominance, Aguero’s strike was the only goal they could muster and Marten De Roon’s late header meant the sides left with a share of the points.
That means City’s last three Premier League home matches have now ended 1-1 after the recent draws with Everton and Southampton.
