Champions Manchester City (Man City) came from behind to beat Luton 2-1 and end a four-match winless run in the Premier League.
Man City were without injured Erling Haaland as Pep Guardiola’s side were facing back-to-back league defeats for the first time since December 2019 when Elijah Adebayo gave Luton the lead in first-half stoppage time, rising highest at the back post to head in Andros Townsend’s cross.
But Bernardo Silva latched on to a loose ball in the penalty area and equalised for the visitors with a fine curling effort.
Three minutes later, City completed the turnaround when Jack Grealish converted Julian Alvarez’s low cross.
Victory means Man City remained fourth, four points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool, while third-from-bottom Luton are now four points off safety following Everton’s win over Chelsea.
City came into Sunday’s fixture on the back of their joint-longest run without a win under Guardiola.
Despite their lowly position, Luton has been a tough proposition at home on their return to the top flight after a 31-year absence.
They drew 1-1 with Liverpool, who needed a late equaliser to avoid defeat, and came within seconds of a point against Arsenal before losing 4-3 on Tuesday.
