In form Raheem Sterling restored City’s lead in the 57th minute before Gundogan put the icing on the cake in the 79th minute.

Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola described the Victory as a good one after their 2-2 draw against Lyon in the Champions league

“It was a good win. After the Champions League it is always tough. People think it’s easy for us but that is not the truth, so I like to win in this way.

“We were flat but after we were more aggressive and we changed the game. I asked them for more at half-time but the first five minutes was no good, they didn’t listen. But one action from Raheem Sterling changed the game.
