It took a while for both sides to get settled, with the pair struggling to create any chances in the opening half-an-hour.

Sergio Aguero was presented with the best chance of the half in the 31st minute but the Argentine dragged his effort wide of the target.

However, the game changed in the final five minutes of the first half, with Loic Remy tapping in from close range, after being picked out by Eden Hazard.

Before City leveled matters moments later, as David Silva diverted Sergio Aguero's shot, after Thibaut Courtois failed deal with Jesus Navas' cross.

The second half proved to be worse than the opening 45 minutes, as chances were hard to come by for both sides.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini brought on the likes of Frank Lampard and Edin Dzeko in the hope of bagging a winner, while Jose Mourinho was quite content with a draw and brought on Gary Cahill in the closing stages.

Neither side managed to break the deadlock in the closing stages and were forced to settle for a point, as they did in the reverse fixture at the Etihad.
