Derbyday in Manchester and they were singing Blue Moon at the end of 90′ when City won the early season matchup between the two expected title contenders. The absence of RVP was evident throughout as City controlled without much resistance. Kun Agüero’s volley-ful brace kickstarted the route. Rooney nailed a beautiful free kick curler, but it was too late with the match already decided.
Paulinho’s clever back heel in the 93′ from a Lamela cross showed why Spurs shelled out £47m for the duo this past summer. North London newbies Christian Eriksen and Roberto Soldado also created chances, but only the Brazilian midfielder was able to break through for the late-game winner.
