Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant finish from the edge of the area proved enough to ensure his team bag all three points in the heavyweight encounter.

City were much the better team as they dominated the game from the start of the game.

In his words, “Absolutely [City deserved to win]. The way we played, everything we have done, we cannot forget against which team we played. European champions, you realise how incredible they are. You try to find the spaces but there are not. They defend well, they wait for the transition to punish us. We won from one transition. How good they defend we create enough chances to win, especially the intention to win from minute one. After 1-0 they make a step up, we lose some transitions, with Mount, Werner, Hudon-Odoi, Lukaku. We were brilliant.”
