City goalkeeper Joe Hart felt a draw was a fair result after a "brilliant" game against West Ham.
Manuel Pellegrini's side were behind in the first minute when Enner Valencia volleyed in, before Sergio Aguero's penalty levelled the scores.
Hart pulled off one of the saves of the season from Dimitri Payet's top corner-bound free-kick before Valencia restored the Hammers' advantage.
Aguero levelled again with a clinical finish under pressure, to ensure deserved point apiece according to Hart.
"That save did feel good from Dimitri Payet," the England stopper said.
"I had to move my feet quickly. It was a great game of football. I thought it was a brilliant game. They played football. It was great the way Enner Valencia was attacking.
"Sergio Aguero is a killer - even though he is not at the standard he says is his best, he's still scoring. We've come from behind. A draw was a fair result, a West Ham win would not have been unfair. A City win would have been unfair."
Take us to Wembley
In the big games, our fans can make a difference.
That will certainly be the case when Everton visit the Etihad Stadium for the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi- final on Wednesday 27 January, kick off 7.45pm.
It’s set to be a thrilling night of cup football and we’re hoping the roar of the City crowd can take us to Wembley and one step closer to a first piece of silverware this season.
