SUNDERLAND, England(AP) Ji Dong-Won scored a stoppage-time winner as Sunderland beat Manchester City 1-0 on Sunday to condemn the Premier League leaders to only their second defeat of the season.

The South Korea striker ran on to Stephane Sessegnon's pass and rounded City goalkeeper Joe Hart to tap into an empty net in the third and final minute of injury time.

City, which stays top on goal difference from Manchester United, will count itself unfortunate after dominating the match at the Stadium of Light, with Edin Dzeko wasting many of the visitors' chances.

Substitute Micah Richards did find a way past inspired Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet in the 88th minute but the right back's downward header struck the bar and was cleared to safety.
