On This Day – April 8: Aguero wonder-goal sinks United at Old Trafford

On April 8 in City history…

2012: Manchester City’s title hopes are left in tatters after a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Mario Balotelli was sent off as City slumped to an eight point deficit in the title race. All seemed lost after this result, but then something quite magical happened…

2013: Despite seemingly being out of the title race, City upset the party at Old Trafford, beating United 2-1. A wonder goal from Sergio Aguero gave the visitors the points, with the marvellous Argentine weaving through the United defence before smashing the ball into the top corner.

Happy Birthday: Joe Royle (67)
