  1. After a record-breaking amount of added time in the Premier League, Man City pick up an unconvincing 1-0 win over Swansea. Tevez's goal won the game for the defending champions, who looked nervous. Swansea lost goalkeeper Vorm to what looks like a serious injury while Man City had Richards stretchered off for a similarly bad-looking injury. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction and quotes.

  2. 90 + 13


  3. 90 + 12

    Yaya Toure leads a Man City break up field before passing to Balotelli. The striker drives towards the penalty area before shooting over the crossbar. That should be the last action of the game.

  4. 90 + 11

    Graham does well to knock down a long ball on the edge of his box but no Swansea team-mate is able to get on to the lay-off.

  5. 90 + 10

    Hart and Graham have a joke together after the former lets the ball roll as deep into his penalty area as possible before smothering it. That was an attempt to run down the clock by Hart.

  6. 90 + 9

    Corner to Man City. Tevez takes it short to Barry before getting the ball back and crossing. Swansea are able to head clear before they then get a goal-kick.

  7. 90 + 8

    Yaya Toure again gives the ball away when Man City were on the attack. The midfielder has not been at the races today.

  8. 90 + 7

    It looks as if the introduction has sent Nastasic out to left-back. Sung-Yueng sends a 25-yard effort rocketing over the crossbar after a poor clearance from Man City.

  9. 90 + 6

    Lescott comes on in place of Aguero as Mancini looks to shut up shop for the remaining six minutes of added time.

  10. 90 + 5

    Man City are preparing to send on Lescott.

  11. 90 + 4

    Laudrup shows he has not lost any of skills from his playing days as, when the ball goes out for a Swansea throw-in, he scoops it up with his right foot to one of his players.

  12. 90 + 3

    Dyer and Rangel play a couple of passes down the right wing. But then Dyer sends a cross/shot flying behind for a goal-kick.

  13. 90 + 2

    A few Man City fans have already left and there are even more empty seats than there were earlier in the game.

  14. 90 + 1

    Swansea will be very happy with that amount of time. Man City fans, on the other hand, let out gasps when the fourth official raised the board.

  15. 90

    ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of 12 (TWELVE) minutes added on before the final whistle.

  16. 89

    Man City are a perfect case of a team who are lacking a bit of confidence. The important thing, in the Premier League at least, is that they are still picking up points.

  17. 88

    Swansea briefly have a three-on-three situation from a long ball. But Routledge's touch down to Michu allows Man City the chance to get back and the ball eventually goes out of play for a goal-kick.

  18. 87

    If it stays like this, Swansea are going to rue Michu's misses when it was still 0-0. But they could still have time as there are going to be quite a few extra minutes.

  19. 86

    Both teams have suffered today from the injuries, both in terms of personnel and in that the breaks in play have prevented them from building any momentum. It has not been a classic match.

  20. 85

    Play is back under way and Clichy runs with the ball down the left. He is challenged from behind by Dyer, who gives away a foul and is booked.
