Edin Dzeko’s first goal for two months earned Manchester City a hard-fought 1-0 win at Wigan on Monday which sent Roberto Mancini’s side three points clear at top of the Premier League.
The 25-year-old Bosnian’s sublime 22nd minute header proved enough to sink the bottom club after Wigna ‘keeper Ali Al Habsi had threatened to frustrate the leaders.
Al Habsi produced a string of excellent saves both before and after Dzeko had netted his 14th goal for City this season.
David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Dzeko were all denied by the Oman international but City pulled clear of nearest rivals Manchester United.
London: Thierry Henry has apologised for swearing at an Arsenal fan following his side’s 3-2 Premier League defeat at Swansea City on Sunday.
Henry, playing in his second match since rejoining Arsenal on loan earlier this month, admitted losing his temper when an Arsenal supporter insulted him at Liberty Stadium.
“I was really shocked and disappointed on Sunday, and not just at the result,” Henry told Britain’s Sun newspaper.
“When I arrived in front of our own fans, I couldn’t understand the abuse the team were getting from one of them.
“I wanted to tell the fan in question that we need their support not abuse. The sentiment was right but in hindsight could have been better expressed.”
