Manchester City taught 'best lesson' by Hoffenheim in UCL - Pep Guardiola

Sergio Aguero and Pep Guardiola

Hoffenheim have only played two games against clubs from England, losing to Liverpool in Champions League playoff qualifying last sesason.

City won 2-1 in Germany in the Champions League on Tuesday, with Silva grabbing the victor in the 87th minute.

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.

It wasn't the best of starts for Pep GUARDIOLA's City as they let in a goal in the first minute.

Sergio Aguero's equaliser seven minutes later seemed to have set them back on course as they dominated most of the match but the Bundesliga side, set up in an attacking 4-3-3 mode and unsafe on the break, held firm until Silva cashed in on a late defensive error. The side finished fourth in the Bundesliga last season.

The second goal arrived midway through the first half, with Dybala firing home from close range after Blaise Matuidi's initial effort was saved.

Impressive numbers for AGUERO this season.

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez contacted by FBI- lawyer
President Donald Trump ordered the additional FBI investigation Friday at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee . Rather, it was a specific sound she heard from Kavanaugh and the other boy she says was in the room, Mark Judge .

While Manchester City and Liverpool sail into a new week in confident mood, Tottenham are still yet to entirely convince while Manchester United's crisis shows no signs of abating.

Their passing and movement, especially in the first half, was painfully slow for most of the game, with nobody looking like they had the composure to bury a chance.

But that stung the visitors into life and when Silva deftly picked out Leroy Sane, the former Schalke star squared for Aguero - who overcame a foot injury to retain his place - to tap home.

"He's coming out in press conferences constantly having a go at players, having at go at people above him because he's not getting what he wants", said Scholes.

Belfodil again found space in the City defence, but fired wide as did midfielder Florian Grillitsch moments later in an explosive opening from the hosts.

Guardiola - only just back from a touchline ban - was spoken to by Skomina for protesting when Silva was prevented from taking a quick throw.
