On This Day – April 24: Bore draw at the Emirates (2010)

On April 24 in City history…

1971: City lose 2-0 at home to Stoke City, with the away side putting in a hugely impressive performance. Despite plenty of quality in the Manchester City side, Stoke controlled the game, and left Maine Road as worthy winners.

2010: City draw away at the Emirates Stadium in what was a dull affair against Arsenal. Despite the hosts having a number of players out, City failed to create many chances and Tottenham were able to widen the gap in the race for 4th. Shay Given was stretchered off during the game, leaving City with a goalkeeping crisis that led to a loan deal for the late Márton Fülöp.

Happy Birthday: Stuart Pearce (54), Jack Byrne (20)
