An miss by Raheem Sterling proved the turning point as Burnley recovered to snatch a draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City 1-1 on Saturday. Pep Guardiola's team, leading from Danilo's first half goal, looked in control but Sterling's blunder 20 minutes from time offered a lifeline and renewed belief to the home side.

And eight minutes from time, Matt Lowton's deep cross from the right allowed Johann Berg Gudmundsson to ghost past the City backline and score with a left-foot volley from six yards. It is just the fourth time City have dropped points in the Premier League this season, but they still enjoy a commanding lead over Manchester United. A draw extends Burnley's winless run to nine league games.
