Man City's title hopes fade
Manchester - Manchester City's Premier League title hopes were dealt a blow on Sunday after Fulham rallied to a 1-1 draw.
Mario Balotelli put City in front with his ninth goal of the season in the 26th minute but Damien Duff equalized shortly after the interval at Eastlands.
Third-placed City now trails league leader and archrival Manchester United by 10 points, having played a game more.
City manager Roberto Mancini did not appear to look at Manchester City's coach Mark Hughes at the post-match handshake, leading to Hughes - fired as City manager 14 months ago - pulling his hand away.
