Robbie Keane’s spectacular strike into the top corner gave Spurs the lead.

But City got a deserved equaliser when Elano headed towards goal and Ireland, who appeared to be offside, hooked the ball into the net from five yards.

Onuoha got the winner when he rose unchallenged to head a corner past a statuesque Paul Robinson.

Manchester City, so imperious at Eastlands at the start of the season, had not won at home in the league since their 4-2 win over Bolton.

And manager Sven-Goran Eriksson will be pleased with the way his side fought back from a goal down.

Both teams made a lackadaisical start, with the final ball often disappointing, but the game sprung into action in the 30th minute.

City appealed for handball as Michael Dawson appeared to stop Michael Johnson’s close-range shot with his hand. Elano then reacted the quickest to the rebound, but the alert Dawson blocked the Brazilian’s 25-yard effort.

Tottenham’s response was immediate when Pascal Chimbonda and Keane combined for the Republic of Ireland striker’s first goal in seven games.
