Swansea v City: Five memorable moments

Iheanacho Yaya Toure

Looking back at some key goals and saves from meetings between the Blues & the Swans in recent years.

1. Aguero’s memorable debut 15/8/11

Sergio Aguero started his City career in fine style, scoring twice on his debut for the club.

The Argentine striker had only been on the pitch for around eight minutes as a substitute when he slid in at the far post for an easy opening to his City account. He added a second shortly afterwards as Roberto Mancini’s began what would turn out to be a title-winning campaign with a 4-0 win.

2. Tevez reaches 50 27/10/12

Carlos Tevez reached 50 Premier League goals for City with a brilliant long-range effort, the only goal of the game as City edged out the battling Welsh club 1-0 at Etihad Stadium.

3. Hart’s world-class save 17/05/15

With the match nicely poised at 3-2 to City, Federico Fernandez and most of the Liberty Stadium thought the defender’s header would level the scores.

England’s number one had other ideas, pulling off an almost unbelievable one-handed save high to his left to underline his credentials as one of the best in the business.

4. Bony's return 17/05/15

Wilfried Bony had scored three times against the Blues while with Swansea, so it seemed inevitable that he would hit the net against his old club the first time he played them.

The Ivorian struck late on to seal a 4-2 win for City, but stuck to the script by not celebrating against his previous employers in the way that has bafflingly become the norm in modern football.

5. Iheanacho's late-late show 12/12/15

Bafetimbi Gomis looked to have given Swansea a point with a late equaliser at Etihad Stadium last December, but Yaya Toure and Kelechi Iheanacho ensured City still came away with a win.

Toure’s shot took a wicked deflection off the young striker to loop past Lukasz Fabianski deep into injury time for a late, late winner.
