WIGAN, England(AP) Edin Dzeko ended Manchester City's two-month wait for an away win in the Premier League on Monday, scoring the only goal in a dour 1-0 victory at Wigan to go three points clear at the top.

The Bosnian striker brought an 11-match goal drought to an end in the first half, heading David Silva's free kick into the net.

He had not scored since Nov. 5 at Queens Park Rangers, which was City's last away win in the league before four successive setbacks.

City is three points clear of Manchester United and a further two ahead of Sunday's opponent, Tottenham.
