Samir Nasri scores and Sunderland are falling apart

It appeared that an upset was brewing at Wembley. Like last year's FA Cup final, Manchester City lacked the invention and fire of a relegation battler and looked well on their way to getting upset in another final. But the League Cup final has been turned on its head, and City now lead Sunderland, 2-1. Yaya Toure struck first with an incredible goal of the year candidate and Samir Nasri nearly matched him just two minutes later.

For a while, Sunderland looked very much in control. Now they have to figure out how to mount a comeback. Is there any way back for the Black Cats?
