Top 10 comebacks of all time: 8 - Tottenham 3-4 Manchester City
Published : 27 Sep 2012 12:06:44
Ten-man Manchester City pulled of arguably the greatest FA Cup comeback of all-time at White Hart Lane in 2004. Goals from defender Ledley King, Irishman Robbie Keane and a Chrstian Ziege free-kick put Spurs 3-0 up after 43 minutes.
Midfield enforcer Joey Barton was then sent-off just before half-time and coach Kevin Keagan would have been thinking about damage limitation as he headed to the dressing room. City amazingly managed to level the scores with a fight-back of epic proportions, before forgotten man John Macken headed in a looping 90th minute winner.
A blown away Keegan said after the game:
“They'll talk about this game long after we've all gone.”
