On This Day – April 25: Fernandinho breaks Villa hearts with late winner (2015)

On April 25 in City history…

2006: Darius Vassell scores the only goal as Manchester City snatch all three points away at Villa Park. In a tense affair, the former Villa man popped up with the winner for Stuart Pearce’s side.

2015: City break Villa hearts after a last minute winner by Fernandinho. The Birmingham side had fought their way back from 2-0 down to draw level at the Etihad, before Fernandinho fired in from close range to secure all three points for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Happy Birthday: Alan Kernaghan (49)
