On This Day – May 14: City suffer heartbreaking FA Cup final defeat to Spurs (1981)

On May 14 in City history…

1977: Manchester City win away at Coventry City courtesy of a Jim Conway strike. The three points ensured that City finished in second place, agonisingly just one point behind champions Liverpool.

1981: City lose a pulsating FA Cup final to Tottenham Hotspur, with Ricky Villa scoring one of the greatest FA Cup goals. It was heartbreaking for City who actually led 2-1, before Spurs hit back to win the trophy.
