Manchester claws back to beat QPR

MANCHESTER City had to cope with the unique experience of falling behind at Loftus Road before they battled back to defeat QPR 3-2.

They had that familiar winning feeling as Yaya Toure's winner kept them five points ahead of Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League title race.

Coming off worst in a five-goal thriller will be scant consolation for QPR.

They became the first team to take the lead against City in the Barclays Premier League this season, courtesy of Jay Bothroyd's fine header.

And they had the spirit to respond through Heidar Helguson after Edin Dzeko and David Silva turned the match on its head either side of the break.
