Manchester City recovered from going behind early on to beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Saturday in the English Premier League.

Stephane Sessegnon gave West Brom the lead in the sixth minute with a powerful near-post finish. In the 19th, however, Sessegnon turned from hero to villain as he brought down Alexander Kolarov inside the penalty area, gifting Sergio Aguero a goal from a well-taken penalty kick.

The winner came in the 66th, Samir Nasri poking in from close range after a scramble in the penalty area.

City's slim title hopes remain alive for now. It remains in 4th place, provisionally 4 points clear of 5th-place Man United, which visits second-place Tottenham on Sunday. West Brom is 13th.
