Manchester City was trailing QPR after 90 minutes of play, but was able to score two goals in the five minutes of additional time added on by the game referee.
Edin Dzeko scored in the second minute of stoppage time to tie the score at two. Then Kun Aguero scored from the right side of the penalty area with a rocket that beat the QPR’s goaltender.
With the win, Manchester City tied in overall points with Manchester United. However, City won on goal difference and took home their first silverware in over four decades. The game started with Pablo Zabeleta scoring in the 39th minute to put the home team up by one.
