  • GOAL - SPORTING 0-1 MAN CITY - Mahrez's goal stands, and the Algerian could not miss from inside the box. Foden's shot had been parried by Adan, only for De Bruyne to pounce immediately. The Belgian turned on a sixpence in the box, squaring the ball to Mahrez, who did the rest.

  • GOAAALLLLLL - SPORTING 0-2 MAN CITY - Bernardo Silva, that is world-class!!! Sporting failed to clear the danger, and none of their defenders could react in time as the City midfielder charged into the box. The Portugal international met the ball on the volley and drilled his shot off the crossbar and into the net. Stunning strike and City lead by two.

  • GOAAAALLL - SPORTING 0-3 MAN CITY - Guardiola's side are quite simply too good. Mahrez's work on the right-hand side causes problems for the Sporting defence, and his cross falls to Foden in the box. The England international took the ball into his stride, paused for a second, and then slotted the ball into the net. Magnificient from the Premier League champions!

  • GOAAAALLL - SPORTING 0-4 MAN CITY. Bernardo gets his second of the night, but this one takes a wicked deflection on its way past Adan. Cancelo's crossfield pass picked out Sterling, who cut the ball back for Bernardo. The City midfielder aimed his shot towards the near post, but the deflection helped beat the Sporting keeper, and Guardiola's side are cruising.

  • GOAAAALLLL - SPORTING 0-5 MAN CITY - Oh my word. Sterling scores City's fifth of the night, and that is the pick of them, so far. The Sporting defence stood off him for a split second, and before they could react, Sterling whipped his shot into the far corner, leaving Adan with no chance in goal. If there was a ball-shaped hole in the net, Sterling's effort would have found it. Ludicrously good from the City forward.
