BACKPAGES: Manchester City draw 2-2 with Sunderland at the Etihad and the talk is of City’s crisis. What about’s Sunderland’s inability to hang on and win at the ground where not to long ago the talk was of a 100% home record?

Didn’t Sunderland blow it? Just seven minutes from time, the league’s bottom side were 2-1 up.

City were for large parts CATatonic. But a win could have been a CATalyst for Sunderland to achieve unlikely Premier League survival. It was CATastrophe not for City but for Sunderland.

Surely for two-goal Connor Wickham, it all went right? Well, nearly all – the Black Cats were just seven minutes away from a great win.

And City are not rock bottom. hey are third. It is Sunderland who are rock bottom.

Only the Telegraph looks at the match from Sunderland’s viewpoint. But his goals were not about City; they were about getting Sunderland off the bottom.
