Whenever we think of greatest Manchester City comebacks, the first thing that pops up into our mind is Sergio Aguero celebrating his title-winning goal against QPR, but it was not the first time when City made such a comeback. In this article we will have a look at some other Manchester City comebacks too.
Here are the top 6 greatest Manchester City comebacks –
6. Bayern Munich 2-3 Manchester City [Dec 2013] UCL Group Stages
Manchester City staged a superb comeback to end Bayern Munich’s record run of 10 consecutive Champions League wins. Two goals down to a rampant Bayern Munich and in danger of being overrun, City cleared their heads and fought back to claim a famous victory.
David Silva pulled a goal back from close range from Jesus Navas’s cross. Aleksandar Kolarov then equalised with a penalty after James Milner was tripped before Milner’s fine finish won it. It seems even more impressive with the fact that City had put their second string on the field keeping the upcoming Premier League game against leaders Arsenal in mind.
5. Tottenham 3-4 Manchester City [Feb 2004] FA Cup 4th Round
10-men City came back from 3 goals down to beat Spurs 3-4 at White Hart Lane. Tottenham led 3-0 at half-time after Ledley King,Robbie Keane and Christian Ziege scored a goal each.
Joey Barton’s sending off for a second yellow at half time made the matter even worse for City. However, soon after the restart, Sylvain Distin got a goal back and Paul Bosvelt gave them hope with a deflected shot. Shaun Wright-Phillips soon equalised for the blues.
The travelling fans were then sent into delirium in the final minute of normal time, as Jon Macken nodded in brilliantly to win it.
