Manchester City scored twice in the last six minutes to draw 3-3 with Sunderland and keep its 15-month unbeaten home record in the English Premier League on Saturday.

City wanted to put pressure on leader Manchester United and get payback for January's last-minute defeat against Sunderland but Sebastian Larsson put the visitors ahead in the 31st.

Mario Balotelli leveled the scores with a disputed 43rd-minute penalty but Nicklas Bendtner restored Sunderland's lead two minutes later and Larsson's second goal made it 3-1 in the 55th.

Balotelli scored again in the 85th and Aleksandar Kolarov equalized a minute later.

City has not lost at Etihad Stadium since December 2010's 2-1 defeat to Everton but its 20-game winning streak there is over.
