Shakhtar beats Man City to reach Champions League last 16

Manchester City claim dramatic late win against West Ham to equal Premier League record Manchester City

City face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, but having already secured top spot in their group, there is little riding on the game.

Jose Mourinho aimed a thinly-veiled dig at rivals Pep Guardiola and Arséne Wenger while offering an update on injuries after Manchester United's 2-1 Champions League win over CSKA Moscow.

The Kaptain was rested against West Ham on Sunday, and I don't think Pep wants to start him at Old Trafford having not played for 10 days.

"If we lost two out of three and they win everything, they are there".

Manchester City restored their eight-point gap over Manchester United on Sunday thanks to David Silva's late victor against West Ham United. They spent a lot of money, like a lot of the big teams.

United sealed progression to the competition's last 16 for the first time in four seasons after goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford cancelled out Alan Dzagoev's opener. I thought his decision making, when to come out and when to hold his position, he identifies it, releases himself and just tidies up nicely.

A grim 0-0 draw left both teams locked in a battle for fourth place as Antonio Conte's Chelsea streaked towards glory.

Seven months on City look nearly transcendent, their sublime and devastatingly effective possession football reminiscent of Guardiola's great Barcelona team.

Recent results, however, give United reason for optimism. Against Manchester City, when it goes in those midfield areas, if they beat your pressing midfield. then you're going to be in trouble.

Angelo Ogbonna's opener for West Ham came directly from a corner, as did the goal that City conceded against Huddersfield last week, while Southampton troubled them from set pieces during the week.

But, despite that sour taste, City remain in good shape ahead of their biggest game of the season so far.

"But you have ups and downs - what is important is that in the second half it was outstanding the way we played".

David Silva runs off in celebration after scoring the victor yesterday.
