Goal of the Day: Tarnat v Blackburn

More to watch

Queue MY QUEUE (0)

A jaw-dropping thunderbolt of a freekick from the German fullback set City on their way to three points at Ewood Park.

A memorable game against Blackburn back n 2003 where Nicolas Anelka's late winner put Man City top of the Premiership.

Michael Tarnat and Joey Barton had put the Blues in front twice only for Rovers to level with sloppy goals from corners.

Winger Trevor Sinclair headed into his own net after a mix-up with David Seaman before defender Lorenzo Amoruso nodded home.

But just as it looked as though the home side would escape with at least a point, Anelka stabbed the ball through Brad Freidel's legs from a very tight angle.

City line-up that day:

Seaman, Jihai, Sommeil, Distin, Tarnat, Wright-Phillips, Bosvelt, Barton, Sinclair, Sibierski, Anelka.

Subs:

Macken, Berkovic, Tiatto, Dunne, Weaver.
