On this day: THREE hat-tricks sees City hit TEN!

Events, games and memorbale moments on this day in our history...


2012: A late Sergio Aguero goal saw City defeat Porto 2-1 at the Estadio do Drageo in the first leg of our Round of 32 Europa League tie.


Silvestre Varela gave the hosts the lead midway through the first half, however a second half own goal from Alvaro Peirera and a strike from super sub, Aguero five minutes from time ensured Roberto Mancini's side held the advantage heading back to Manchester.

2019: A brace from Phil Foden and strikes from Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez saw City run out 4-1 winners away at Newport County in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

After a frustrating first half in tough conditions, Sane finally broke the deadlock five minutes after the restart. Foden then added our second before the hosts hit back with a goal with two minutes of normal time remaining, to give the League 2 side a glimmer of hope.

This hope however quickly vanished as Foden and Mahrez added our third and fourth goals of the evening, to secure a place in the quarter-finals on the way to our first FA Cup triumph in eight years.

2020: City's Women booked a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup in sensational style, as we defeated Ipswich Town 10-0 at the Academy Stadium.

Hat-tricks for Jess Park, Georgia Stanway and Pauline Bremer, plus a goal from Laura Coombs saw City brush aside the Tractor Girls in emphatic fashion.


It was Coombs who opened the scoring 20 minutes in, before Bremer and Park got their names on the score sheet to give us a three-goal advantage at the break.

A magnificent second half followed, as Bremer, Park and Stanway all completed their hat-tricks to cap off a clinical display against the spirited fourth tier side.

We would then go on to defeat Leicester City and Arsenal, before seeing off Everton at Wembley as Gareth Taylor's side clinched FA Cup glory.
