On this day: Bremer bags a hat-trick and goals galore at the Etihad!
Events, games and moments on this day in our history...


2005: Kevin Keegan's City ran out winners with a 3-1 victory at home to Crystal Palace.


Two goals from Shaun Wright-Phillips and a strike from Robbie Fowler proved enough for the win in a year that saw City finish eighth, as we agonisingly missing out on European football on the final day of the season. 

2011: A brace each from Carlos Tevez and Yaya Toure earned City a thrilling 4-3 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Despite Nenad Milijas giving the visitors the lead, a goal either side of half time from Toure and Tevez put us ahead five minutes into the second half. 

Moments later Toure added his second and City's third, before Tevez completed his double to round off a superb turnaround from Roberto Mancini's team. 

Kevin Doyle and Ronald Zubar clawed Wolves back into it, however City held out to pick up the points in the seven-goal thriller.

2014: City thrashed Blackburn Rovers 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium to book a place in the FA Cup fourth round.

After drawing 1-1 in the initial fixture at Ewood Park, City returned home for the replay in style, as braces from Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko and a goal from Sergio Aguero just a minute after coming on secured a resounding win, setting up a home tie with Watford in the next round.

2020: A superb hat-trick from Pauline Bremer and a strike from Laura Coombs gave Nick Cushing's City a convincing win away at Sheffield United in the Continental Cup quarter-final.

Bremer got the ball rolling with two late second half goals, six minutes apart to give Cushing's side a comfortable lead at the break.

We got our third with 20 minutes to go as Coombs curled in from 10 yards to put City out of sight.

In the final moments Bremer then completed her hat-trick as she nodded in to round off a brilliant quarter-final performance.


Happy Birthday to Chloe Kelly who turns 23 and former winger, Martin Petrov who is 42 today!
