Champions League: City make statement with PSG fightback

Manchester City's 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday almost felt like a sideshow.

Behind to a goal from in-form Kylian Mbappe early in the second half, City hit back with efforts from Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus to nail down top spot in Group A.

The well-beaten Parisians headed for the airport with tails between their legs, while Pochettino was left to fend off yet more questions about his future, the one crumb of comfort they could collectively cling to from a dispiriting night being that they too got through to the last 16.

Poch's PSG future still uncertain

Pochettino will presumably be in charge for their group-stage sign-off at home to Club Brugge on December 7th, through whether the ex-Spurs chief will be in the French capital for the first leg of the knockout phase is very much up in the air.

Pep Guardiola's side had been outstanding even minus the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden, utterly upstaging the famed Mbappe-Neymar-Messi frontline, the French giants' holy trinity, who carried a sporadic threat at best.

It means that all four Premier League teams are through to the round of 16, City, Manchester United and Liverpool as group winners, while Chelsea will be confident of emulating the feat of their English rivals going into their last game.
