Match Highlights

Classic highlights: Newcastle 0-2 City, 2012

A day that will live long in the memory...

When City visited Newcastle in May 2012, the stakes could not have been higher...

Roberto Mancini's men made the trip to the Toon in the penultimate game of a rollercoaster season, ready to make one final push for what would be a first Premier League crown.

Two more wins would secure it.


Having clawed our way back into a thrilling title race, closing the gap on leaders Manchester United with a superb run of late form and an unforgettable Manchester Derby win the week before, there was simply no margin for error at St James' Park.

It was a day born for 'big game' players and the man who had already made history on the big stage in sky blue delivered again: the one and only Yaya Toure.

The immense Ivorian, who had famously struck the winning goal of our FA Cup success the previous year, powered City to victory once more with a brilliant brace, moving Mancini's men one step closer to glory.
