Champions League
Not the most pulsating game I have ever seen as City sealed top spot of their group with their fifth win on the trot in the Champions League - for the first time. With the game looking like it was going to end goalless Sterling scored an excellent goal just a minute or so before full time to give us something to cheer about. City had made quite a few changes as we had expected and did not play with quite same tempo as usual. Had we scored earlier I am sure we would have seen more of Foden and Diaz. It was certainly good to see Phil Foden have a few minutes and as a 17 year old he fitted in very well making his professional debut. With the injury to Stones I was not surprised to see Ederson in goal as he will have to get used to Mangala and Otamendi - who had a good game - in front of him. Both Aguero and De Bruyne were slightly off the boil so we did not create too many chances.
I was surprised to see so many fans from Rotterdam already in the stadium which alas had too many empty seats
