Edin Dzeko completed Manchester City's comeback against Tottenham on Sunday to win 2-1 and keep the pressure on Premier League leader Manchester United .
Having stumbled once again in the Champions League in midweek against Ajax, the out-of-sorts reigning Premier League champions fell behind to Steven Caulker's first-half header.
But Sergio Aguero hauled them level before substitute Edin Dzeko hooked in the winner two minutes from time. There was a fright for City's defence early on when Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor threatened and worse was soon to follow.
Caulker was allowed space to stoop and head Tom Huddlestone's free-kick past the scrambling Joe Hart from six yards.
At the other end, City appealed in vain for a penalty for a handball by Willam Gallas before Huddlestone's low thump whistled past the post.
Aleksandar Kolarov's dink floated wide of the far post while Huddlestone's unpunished penalty-box bodycheck on Pablo Zabaleta further incensed the home support.
