Sergio Aguero will be the last player in that side to leave the club.

Sergio Aguero, who is to leave Manchester City at the end of the season, has scored a record 257 goals for the club – one of which will be remembered more than all the others.

That was his dramatic last-gasp winner against QPR that clinched the Premier League title in the final game of the season in 2012.

Here, the PA news agency looks at what happened to the team from that day.
