On this day: Tevez bags the Goal of the Season!

Looking back at this day – good or bad – in City’s history…

17 May


City fall to a 3-1 friendly defeat to a Thai League All-Star XI in a post-season tour.

Felipe Caicedo opens the scoring on 22 minutes but goals from Oliviera, Tawan Sripan and Tana Chanabut turned the game on its head at the Rajamangala National Stadium, Bangkok.


City defeat Stoke for the second time in three days, as the pair meet in the Premier League following the weekend’s FA Cup Final exertions.

Carlos Tevez bags a brace – one a stunning free-kick from 30 yards, which would later be voted Goal of the Season – and Joleon Lescott adds another in a 3-0 win at the Etihad Stadium.

The three points move Roberto Mancini’s men into third spot and an automatic Champions League qualification place with one game remaining...


Wilfried Bony scores against his former club, as City triumph 4-2 over Swansea in a topsy-turvy penultimate game of the campaign.

Goals from Yaya Toure (his 50th Premier League strike) and James Milner put Manuel Pellegrini's men in control but the Swans fight back through Gylfi Sigurðsson and Bafétimbi Gomis.

Toure restores the visitors' lead with just over 15 minutes to go and Bony seals the victory in injury time, securing a top-three finish.
