Going by Twitter it's probably safe to say that having eased to a 3-0 win over the Potters, 'The Hoff' made the greater impression on the City team.
Joining the players in the dressing rooms after the match, Sergio Aguero tweeted a picture of himself with the former Baywatch star captioned: "At the Etihad Stadium with @DavidHasselhoff".
'The Hoff' himself tweeted a photo with Pablo Zabaleta and indicated he was at least partially aware of what had gone on during the game with "Great goal great to meet you!" Zabaleta responded with "@DavidHasselhoff it was great to have met you too! Thanks for coming to the match and supporting @MCFC!!".
Meanwhile in the biggest upset of 2013 so far, Harry Redknapp's QPR grabbed all three points at Stamford Bridge thanks to a rare Shaun Wright-Philips strike. Wayne Routledge dared suggest it could be the start of a miraculous recovery for the R's tweeting "Wow, could the great escape be on... #QPR".
On loan Ranger Joey Barton tweeted his support from afar with "Well done to all at QPR. Made up for SWP, he's come in for a lot of stick lately. Maybe, it's not as cut and dried as we all thought."
He added "To a man they stuck together and battled hard. Polar opposite from the game I saw against Liverpool a few days ago. Well done. Buzzing 4'em".
And seemingly just to prove his Twitter account hadn't been hijacked by an image consultant, Barton signed off for the evening with: "Off to bed to read another book about Genghis Khan. Almost sure I was him in a previous life..."
