On this day: Stokes signs and Sergio strikes late
Events, games and moments on this day in our history....


2008: A goal either side of half time from Elano and Gelson Fernandes secured City a 2-0 win over Newcastle United at St James' Park. The win moved Sven-Goran Eriksson's side into 4th in the Premier League table.

2010: Roberto Mancini's City booked a place in the FA Cup fourth round as a single goal from Benjani saw us defeat Championship side, Middlesbrough at the Riverside.

2015: City announced the signing of England international, Demi Stokes from South Florida Bulls on a three-year deal. Stokes would go on to play an integral part in City's successes, winning three Continental Cups, three Women's FA Cups and one FA Women's Super League title.

2016: Two late goals from Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero gave City a dramatic 2-1 win over Watford at Vicarage Road.

After a freak Ben Watson corner gave the Hornets the lead, Manuel Pellegrini's side levelled things up through a stunning Toure volley eight minutes from time.

Two minutes later Aguero added a second to secure all three points and City's first win on the road in seven away games.

2017: City began 2017 with a victory as we ran out 2-1 winners over Burnley at the Etihad Stadium, despite playing the majority of the game with 10 men.

Fernandinho was the man to see red as Lee Mason gave the Brazilian his marching orders 30 minutes in.

Despite the disadvantage, Pep Guardiola's side came out fighting in the second half and two quick fire goals from Gael Clichy and Sergio Aguero put us 2-0 up.

Former City Academy graduate, Ben Mee pulled one back for the Clarets, however it wasn't enough as City held on for the win.

2018: City began what would turn out to be a record breaking 2018 in style, defeating Watford 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero and a Christian Kabasele own goal.

It took Guardiola's side a little over 30 seconds to open the scoring as Sterling tapped in a Leroy Sane cross for our first. Kabasele then converted a Kevin De Bruyne cross into his own net to put City two ahead at the break. 

Aguero added a third in the second half, and whilst the visitors did grab a late goal through Andre Gray it only proved to be a consolation, as we extended our lead at the top of the Premier League table to 15 points.
