Man City drop points in West Brom draw


Ruben Dias’ own goal was the first goal Manchester City had conceded in all competitions in 608 minutes.

Manchester City endured a frustrating night as they were held to a home draw by Premier League strugglers West Brom.

City would have moved to within a point of the top four with an expected victory, but were kept at bay by some brilliant Sam Johnstone saves.

Ilkay Gundogan steered in Raheem Sterling’s pass to put the hosts ahead.

But defender Semi Ajayi saw his shot deflect in off Ruben Dias to give Slaven Bilic’s side a vital point in their fight for survival.

Ex-Manchester United keeper Johnstone saved superbly from Gundogan and Sterling in added time to secure the result.
