(Video) Man City 1-1 Hull City Premier League Highlights: James Milner Equalizes At The Death, Is The Title Race Still Alive?

James Milner equalizes at the death to give City some hope in the title race.

James Milner scored a late equaliser to rescue Manchester City from the brink of defeat against Hull City and prevent opening up an eight point deficit to league leaders Chelsea.

Hull looked on course for an incredible in after David Meyler put the Tigers ahead in the first half due to some shocking City defending.

City had a wake-up call early in the first half as Elmohamady hit the cross bar with a header within 15 minutes.

Pellegrini’s men were adamant they should have had a penalty for this challenge on David Silva in the second half.

And they looked to be consigned to defeat after Sergio Aguero struck the crossbar with just two minutes left on the clock.

But England midfielder James Milner hit a powerful and curling free kick in the second minute of injury time to ensure Manuel Pellegrini’s side got at least something from the game and preventing a shock three points for Steve Bruce’s side.

The result leaves City now seven points behind first placed Chelsea who managed a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa with a late winner from Branislav Ivanovic.
