Robinho was in devastating form as he helped himself to a hat-trick when Stoke City visited the Etihad Stadium in October 2008.
The Brazilian forward inspired Mark Hughes’ side to a 3-0 victory over the Potters and we relive his third and final strike here.
Tenacity and a precise ball from Stephen Ireland set Shaun Wright-Philips free before Daniel Sturridge selflessly teed up Robinho for the simplest of finishes and he made no mistake from inside the box.
It was a welcome result and performance from the Blues’ No.10, with his man of the match showing helping City to a first Premier League win in four games.
Watch the video above to relive one of the Brazilian’s finer performances in the sky blue shirt.
