Manchester City secured an important three points away from home at West Brom courtesy of a 3-2 win, surviving a late comeback by Steve Clarke’s men.

Micah was among the substitutes as City looked to improve on their relatively poor away form so far this term, and ignoring the last 5 minutes they were in control for most of the game.

Pablo Zabaleta teed up compatriot Sergio Aguero with a low cross that the in-form striker lashed in to make it 1-0, and a fine team effort eventually saw Yaya Toure open his body and side-foot home to make it 2-0 with 25 minutes on the clock.

Aleks Kolarov was brought down midway through the second-half and Toure stepped up to convert the spot-kick, seemingly securing an impressive away win for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

However, an unfortunate own goal by Costel Pantmillon and Victor Anichebe’s fine turn and goal had the travelling supporters nervous for the dying minutes, but City held on to record an important victory.
