The match featured of close match between 1st place Manchester City and relegation favorites QPR. City went into the match feeling quite confident, but as QPR began to strike City began to lose hope. The first half favored City as defender Pablo Zabaleta struck a shot into the back of the net past goalkeeper Paddy Kenny. Th second-half started badly for City as a mistake from Joleon Lescott gave Djbril Cisse an open shot at goal. The game came back to City when Joey Barton did a rash challenge on City man Carlos Tevez and was sent off. But City were unable to take advantage when substitute Armand Traore crossed the ball into Jamie Mackie to make the score 2-1 in QPR's favor. As the title was slipping away, Edin Dzeko made the score level, but that would not be enough to the league, but thanks to a last gasp shot by Sergio Aguero, City were able to lift the trophy for a first time in 44 years.[1][2]
