Carlos Tevez scored a stunning goal to give Manchester City three points
Manchester City stuttered to an unconvincing single-goal win over battling Swansea City as the champions move into second in the Premier League.
Carlos Tevez's stunner rescued Roberto Mancini's team as they followed up their midweek European disappointment with another lacklustre display.
Keeper Joe Hart had kept the hosts in the game with two saves from Michu and Pablo Hernandez also wasted a chance, reports the BBC.
But Tevez's 30-yard wonder strike on the hour saved Man City blushes.
Both managers, however, will be concerned as each had a star player carried off on a stretcher as Swans goalkeeper Michel Vorm and Blues defender Micah Richards suffered worrying injuries.
