Yaya Toure put City on the verge of title glory with a brace at Newcastle in the legendary 2011/12 campaign.

The Ivorian, famous for his pivotal role in the Blues' recent silverware successes, played a key part as Roberto Mancini's men clinched a crucial 2-0 win at St James' Park to move to within one victory of a first Premier League title.

Toure had already opened the scoring with a sumptuous curled finish from outside the area before securing the triumph late on.

On the hunt for a last-gasp leveller, the Magpies were on the attack but City broke clear.

Eventually, Gael Clichy rolled through to Toure, who controlled before clipping the ball past Tim Krul, sparking scenes of delirium in the lofty away end.

And we all know what happened next...
