BLAST FROM THE PAST: Swans v Manchester City

23rd September 2016

Swansea City 1-0 Manchester City
Premier League - Sunday, March 11, 2012
Luke Moore's late header knocked Man City off the top of the table for the first time in five months.
The Swans were handed the perfect opportunity to take the lead inside the opening five minutes, but Scott Sinclair's penalty was well saved by Joe Hart.
Nevertheless, the home side were on top for the majority of the contest and scored what proved to be the winner seven minutes from time.
Moore had only entered the action four minutes earlier and he arrived unmarked in the area to head home Wayne Routledge's pinpoint cross.
City fought for the equaliser with the offside flag denying Micah Richards, but the hosts held on to take another huge three points in their Premier League debut season.

Swans: Vorm, Rangel, Caulker, Williams, Taylor, Routledge (Monk, 87), Britton, Allen, Sinclair, Sigurdsson, Graham (Moore, 79).

Man City:
Hart, Richards, K. Toure, Savic, Clichy, De Jong (Johnson, 84), Barry (Aguero, 37), Nasri, Y. Toure, Silva (Dzeko, 87), Balotelli.

Premier League - Saturday, May 4, 2013
The Swans shared the spoils with Manchester City in an even contest at the Liberty Stadium.
The first half was the far livelier of the contest, with Pablo Hernandez, Michu and Wayne Routledge going close while the Swans had a very strong case for a penalty after Matija Nastasic clattered Michu in the box, but the appeals were turned down.
Ashley Williams and then Michel Vorm denied David Silva from close range before the break, while in the second half sub Edin Dzeko missed a glorious chance from six yards out.
This point moved Michael Laudrup's side onto 43 points with three games remaining as they continue their target of a top-half finish.

Swansea City 1-1 Manchester City
Premier League - Sunday, May 15, 2016
The Swans came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw with Manchester City as the curtain came down on the 2015-16 Barclays Premier League season.
After Kelechi Iheanacho had given the visitors an early lead at the Liberty Stadium, Andre Ayew equalised on the cusp of half-time through a deflected free-kick.
Iheanacho put Manuel Pellegrini's side in front inside five minutes when he tapped home from close range after Sergio Aguero's initial effort was parried by Kristoffer Nordfeldt.
The Citizens paid the price for missed chances when Ayew levelled the scores on the brink of half-time when his free-kick from 25 yards took a big deflection off Fernando before nestling into the corner of the net.
The hard-earned point meant the Swans finished the season in 12th position with 47 points.

Swans: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Angel Rangel, Federico Fernandez, Jordi Amat, Stephen Kingsley, Leon Britton (capt), Jack Cork, Leroy Fer, Wayne Routledge, Jefferson Montero, Andre Ayew.

Subs: Josh Vickers, Kyle Naughton, Jay Fulton, Kenji Gorre, Modou Barrow, Marvin Emnes, Bafe Gomis.
