Late Silva victor gets Man City back on track in Europe

Late Silva victor gets Man City back on track in Europe

Gundogan revealed after the game that the match against the Reds is the most important game of the season so far.

But the broader question concerns how Pep Guardiola's men will bounce back from their shock 2-1 home defeat to Lyon in their Group F opener.

Upon the resumption of the second half, Pep Guardiola's directed proceedings, with Riyadh Mahrez coming in for misfiring Raheem Sterling in the 70th minute in a tactical substitution.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home to RB Leipzig on Saturday, a result that leaves them 10th in the Bundesliga standings. Hoffenheim drew 2-2 with Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine. "You can not make the next steps if you don't suffer or live this kind of experience, where you have to fight against everything".

Sergio Aguero has been in fine goalscoring form this season and I expect the Argentine to continue his record in the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Guardiola was unhappy at Leroy Sané being denied a penalty when Oliver Baumann appeared to pull him down in the second half but the City manager - who was serving a touchline ban when City lost to Lyon at the Etihad - refused to discuss this afterwards.

However, not longer after the sketch aired, she revealed that she was now in on the joke. "Am I angry? Your damn right". Ronan "Sinatra" (it's been rumored that Frank Sinatra is Ronan Farrow's biological father).

At 31, Nagelsmann is the youngest coach in Champions League history, and he is relishing the opportunity to test himself against Guardiola.

His side kept their patience, though, and David Silva's quick thinking, robbing central defender Stefan Posch in the box and shooting home a sharp left-footed victor, secured them the three points.

"I've never seen so many Man Utd players, who I'd normally hang my hat on, give the ball away so much", he said.

The Old Lady will lock horns with Manchester United in their next Group H encounter, while Ronaldo is also expected to return. "Now it's in our hands unlike before and, of course, we can not make the mistake we did against Lyon", said Guardiola.

The domestic form has been good enough but not spectacular and they must transform that winning mentality for this game against Hoffenheim.
