A couple of hours after leader Liverpool lost 2-0 against Chelsea at home, City cut its deficit to the Reds to three points, with one game in hand. If they win their three remaining matches and keep their superior goal difference, City's players will be crowned champions. (Chelsea halt Liverpool's title surge)

Having recovered from a thigh problem, Toure made a spectacular return to competition, setting up Dzeko's opener in the fourth minute with a precise cross that the striker headed home. The powerful midfielder then started and concluded a superb collective move two minutes before halftime with a curling effort.
