  • GOAL! MANCHESTER CITY 3-2 RB LEIPZIG! City switch off at the back and get punished. It's Nkunku with the header again as he drifts into the box unmarked to get on the end of Olmo's cross. City have De Bruyne down near the centre circle but that's no excuse for the lapse in concentration.

  • GOAL! MANCHESTER CITY 4-2 RB LEIPZIG! Grealish restores City's two-goal advantage with a lovely strike! The Englishman drives inside from the left flank and curls past Gulacsi with a swish of his right foot. Leipzig knew it was coming but could do nothing about it.

  • GOAL! MANCHESTER CITY 5-3 RB LEIPZIG! This is the game that keeps on giving! Cancelo receives a pass from Gundogan and lets rip from outside the box. It's a swerving effort that finds the bottom left corner, and another candidate for goal of the game.

  • GOAL! MANCHESTER CITY 6-3 RB LEIPZIG! Jesus gets in on the act for City, smashing the ball into the top left corner as Leipzig fail to clear a corner and Mahrez's shot from outside the box. Gulacsi had made a decent stop from Mahrez to concede the corner. VAR checks the goal for offside against Dias who'd touched the ball in the build-up, but the goal stands.
