An early goal from Raheem Sterling proved decisive as we lost at home to the Premier League leaders.
Manchester City made a flying start and Sterling found space in the box to direct a header past Bernd Leno following good work from Riyad Mahrez.
We struggled in the early stages but grew into the game and put City under pressure with a string of crosses from Kieran Tierney.
Bukayo Saka and Mohamed Elneny had half-chances but we couldn’t break down an obdurate City defence.
