Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.

Saturday 12th September 2009

City beat Arsenal 4-2 in a thrilling match at the City of Manchester Stadium. Micah Richards opens the scoring for the Blues and Craig Bellamy, Emmanuel Adebayor and Shaun Wright-Phillips score three more in the space of ten minutes in the latter stages of the game.

Of course the match is best remembered for Aderbayor's goal celebration, which saw him run the length of the pitch before sliding on his knees in front of his former supporters.
