Manchester City Defeated Fulham
Supersub Dzeko spares City blushes
Edin Dzeko came off the bench to secure Manchester City a last-gasp comeback 2-1 victory at Fulham and save his manager Roberto Mancini's blushes.
The Italian revealed his side would overcome an indifferent start and secure the title they won in such incredible circumstances back in May.
Such fighting talk came after a poor run of form that looked as if it would be extended in west London as Fulham maintained parity heading into the closing stages.
Mancini's side fell behind to a Mladen Petric penalty after 10 minutes but levelled two minutes before break through Sergio Aguero.
The Argentina international tucked home after a superb save by Mark Schwarzer, who would be beaten again at the death by Dzeko.
The Bosnia international had been on the pitch for less than two minutes when he capitalised on a poor clearing header by John Arne Riise and lashed home to secure victory.
