Last season's two best sides met to try and get an early advantage over the other in the first meeting between the clubs this campaign.
It was to be a nervy, attritional first 45 minutes with neither side wanting to give the other the advantage.
And in a game of few chances at either end, it was perhaps inevitable that when a goal did come, it would have more than a fair chunk of luck associated with it.
That was enough to win a game where City were nowhere near their scintillating best.
