Stoke City 1-1 Manchester City – Highlights

Peter Crouch scored with the aid of his hand to help Stoke City hold Premier League champions Manchester City 1-1 at the Britannia Stadium.

The former England striker managed to give City central defenders Joleon Lescott and Vicent Kompany the slip on 15 minutes before planting the ball beyond Joe Hart for the opening goal on 15 minutes.

Replays showed Crouch had clearly handled the ball to control it with referee Mark Clatternburg apparently unsighted.

Roberto Mancini’s side were the better side for long periods of the first half and deserved equalised when Javi Garcia popped up unmarked in the home area to head from Carlos Tevez’s free-kick on 35 minutes .

It was his first goal in a City shirt since his move from Benfica during the transfer window.
