Match Highlights

Classic highlights: City 1-0 Leicester

Cometh the hour, cometh the captain!

When the pressure is on, Champions step up - teams pull together, leaders shine and the great ones weave their magical moments.

The stakes could not have been higher for Pep Guardiola's men when Leicester City visited the Etihad Stadium on this day in 2019.

Nothing less than a victory would suffice, as City chased a second successive Premier League crown.

With the score locked at 0-0 with 20 minutes to go, you could cut the tension with a knife... It was time for something special - but no-one could have predicted what happened next!

Of all people, it was Vincent Kompany who decided to take matters into his own hands. Though he'd scored 'big game' goals before, this one was straight out of the top drawer...

Picking the ball up 30 yards from goal, our beloved skipper opted to try his luck and unleashed an absolute thunderbolt past Kasper Schmeichel and into the top corner.

It was a truly sensational strike, which any striker or midfielder would have been proud of - never mind a centre-back! - and it deservedly proved to be the matchwinner, gaining the pivotal three points needed to put one hand on the trophy!
