Manchester, England (SportsNetwork.com) – Jesus Navas scored 13 seconds into
the match for Manchester City and the team never looked back as the Citizens
rolled to a 6-0 win over Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Navas also scored just before the final whistle, while Sergio Aguero tallied
two goals, Alvaro Negredo found the net once and Sandro scored an own goal in
between to doom Tottenham to its worst league defeat since 1996.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had to take a big share of the blame for the
terrible start as his poor clearance handed the ball straight to Aguero.
Lloris was able to parry the effort from the forward, but the ball fell to
Navas and he scored from a tight angle with a well-placed shot inside the far
post.

The second goal arrived in the 34th minute after Tottenham enjoyed a large
spell of possession.

Aguero had a shot saved by Lloris but Negredo put the rebound attempt on goal,
where the ball deflected off of Younes Kaboul and struck Sandro before ending
up in the net for an own goal.

Navas set up Aguero’s first goal shortly before the break with a low cross
that the Argentina international redirected expertly inside the left post.

Yaya Toure then played provider for another Aguero goal 10 minutes after the
restart, leaving Tottenham four goals adrift.

Negredo scored on a nice turn at the edge of the penalty area to make it 5-0
and Navas capped off the day in stoppage time, moving City to within six
points of leaders Arsenal.

Cardiff City 2, Manchester United 2

Cardiff, Wales – Kim Bo-Kyung came off the bench to score the equalizer in
stoppage time for Cardiff City as the club earned a 2-2 draw in Wales against
Manchester United.

Wayne Rooney’s deflected shot on the turn put United in front after 14
minutes, while Cardiff answered in the 32nd through Fraizer Campbell after he
scored on a first-time shot following a nice through ball from Jordon Mutch.

United regained the lead just before halftime when Patrice Evra headed home
Rooney’s corner kick, while Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall kept his side
within a goal after making a fine stop on United’s Marouane Fellaini early in
the second half.

Campbell nearly scored again for Cardiff with a clever chip that struck the
crossbar, but the home side made the most of a late free kick.

Peter Whittingham whipped the ball into the six-yard box from the left wing
and Kim turned a header past goalkeeper David De Gea to earn his side a point.
