Welcome to your quick recap.

Manchester City win a hugely important match as the team was just in excellent form. City with Pep at the helm had nearly a perfect game. One that saw Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland play a really what match.

What can you say about the team? The defenders especially had a ridiculously great game. From blocks, awareness, 1v1 defending and more they were all spectacular.

A match that had a similar feel to most City matches, yet resulted in some great play for the team as the intensity was there early. The second half was more dominant for City especially after the Silva goal.

One where City was in control with possession and chances created. They played a really great match and this time kept the pressure on that led to a win and makes the trip to Germany a but less intimidating. It means a win was the correct result.

City had so many players who played well and this seems to be a much needed boost as the club feels ‘back’ to its good form and the team of old.

Two others of note who did play well and were lively were Ederson and Bernardo Silva who showed up well.

The story of the night is that City get a win and are a step closer to the semi finals of the UCL.

The stakes have risen and it will make for a fun close of season.
