A late goal by Wilfried Bony was not enough to deny Manchester City three points at the Liberty Stadium, as the visitors claimed a 3-2 win against Swansea City.

Second-half goals from Yaya Toure and Aleksandar Kolarov saw them beat Swansea 3-2 to record a fifth-straight Premier League win.

Fernandinho had fired City into an early lead, only for Wilfried Bony to head Swansea level in first-half stoppage time.

But Toure put the visitors back in front with his 12th goal of the season and Kolarov got their third with an excellent solo effort.

Bony got his second in time added on to give Swansea hope, but City held on.

City's previous visits to Swansea had ended in a defeat and a draw but, after a difficult period either side of the break, they recovered to claim victory on this occasion.
