Champions League: Manchester City eyeing to open their account

Jose Mourinho is under pressure at Manchester United

Manchester United is in turmoil entering Tuesday's UEFA Champions League game against Valencia.

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

It was then Silva who managed to break the deadlock as a awful defensive error from Posch allowed the Spanish midfielder to pounce as he nicked the ball away from the young defender before burying his effort into the back of the net.

However, City got off to a disastrous start at the Rhein-Neckar Arena as Hoffenheim shocked the English side by taking the lead after just 44 seconds.

"Losing at home (to Lyon) made things tough and conceding so early (at Hoffenheim) was hard, but we fought against everything today", said Guardiola. The Citizens ran away with the Premier League title last season but were very disappointing against the French club. "I want to be on the bench with my players in the next game - on the bench". "Prediction is Hoffenheim 0-3 Manchester City".

Normal service was quickly resumed, though, when a fine ball from Silva found Leroy Sane, outstanding on his return to Germany, who picked out Aguero to bundle home his eighth goal in 10 matches in all competitions this season.




Hoffenheim started the second half just as they had the first - at full throttle.

Raheem Sterling, after a lightning end-to-end break, and Aguero went close to putting City ahead as they piled on the pressure.

It may be a stretch to say the loss to Lyon had derailed City's bid for the most sought-after trophy in European football, but it certainly cast further doubts over their pedigree in this tournament.

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.

"There are things it is hard for me to say, I do not want to attract any more criticism for being too open", he said.

Guardiola heaped praise on match-winner Silva, 32.
