Manchester City's find of the season, Kelechi Iheanacho, finished comfortably from close range in the fifth minute to put Manchester City ahead and the former champions were more than a little guilty of not making the most of the chances that came their way with Iheanacho in particular guilty of missing plenty of gilt edged opportunities that you would expect a player of his quality to comfortably tuck away.

Laurent Koscielny just about completed the clearance to prevent Manchester City from scoring as Arsenal made a mess of the kick-off.

It will be an all Madrid final for the second time in three years in the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid squeezing past English giants Manchester City 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu to join local rivals Atletico in the Final of Europe's showpiece event later this month in Milan.

The match was decided by a cruel deflection as Gareth Bale's attempted cross into the box took a nick off Fernando, who was doing his defensive duty to charge the ball down, and the ball flicked his foot and that took it over Joe Hart and into the back of the net via the inside of the post.

Manchester United fans, look away right now! The Red Devils may have been hot on the trail of Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte for quite a while now; however, reports in The Guardian state that their bitter rivals Man City are now the favourites to land the Frenchman after agreeing to splash out €50m to meet his release clause!

The Citizens’ sporting director Txiki Begiristain was spotted in the Basque country last month, with reports in the press revealing that he was there to broker a deal for Laporte at the ‘specific request’ of incoming boss Pep Guardiola.
