Sparkling Silva earns Manchester City precious victory

Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann celebrates with Leonardo Bittencourt

Pep Guardiola described Manchester City's 2-1 win at Hoffenheim on Tuesday as one of his happiest days at the club and he believes key lessons learned from the away win will bring his side future Champions League success. "I want to be on the bench with my players in the next game - on the bench".

But Guardiola, who was banned from the touchline for the defeat to Lyon after confronting the referee at half-time of City's exit to Liverpool in last season's quarterfinals, decided against any criticism.

Guardiola met Hoffenheim six times whilst manager of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

However, City got off to a disastrous start at the Rhein-Neckar Arena as Hoffenheim shocked the English side by taking the lead after just 44 seconds.

After defeat to Lyon a fortnight ago, it had looked like being another frustrating night for City in Group F until Silva pounced on a defensive mistake three minutes from time. He won five and lost none of those meetings (D1), scoring two or more goals on each occasion.

City, with Aymeric Laporte at left-back, were rocked in the first minute. "This is one of the happiest days I have had at this club as it will help us going forward".

Raheem Sterling, after a lightning end-to-end break, and Aguero, who was a livewire all evening, went close to putting City ahead as they piled on the pressure.

When central midfielder Kerem Demirbay spotted a hole in the City defence, his pass put Ishak Belfodil clear to fire past goalkeeper Ederson to the delight of the home fans.

This will be the first ever meeting in any competition between Hoffenheim and Manchester City. They were going forward, looking risky but just not creating the chances. "Prediction is Hoffenheim 0-3 Manchester City".

The Spanish playmaker nipped in sharply to dispossess Hoffenheim's Stefan Posch, before rifling the ball into the back of the net to secure all three points for the Premier League champions.
