Shakhtar had a right to feel aggrieved by the penalty decision but they were otherwise outplayed for a second time in two weeks by City, and Paulo Fonseca made no excuses for his side.

It's important to note that Sterling didn't dive, nor did he claim it was a penalty, while the reaction of his manager Pep Guardiola was just priceless.

"It is hard to speak about a penalty after a result like that - but it's ridiculous, that's all I can say", he said.

"Everyone saw it, but it is not because of the penalty we lost the game".

"We realised it wasn't a penalty".

"I need a couple of days now", said Sterling.

There was no player challenging him, let alone any contact, yet the experienced Kassai pointed to the spot. "The referees said a long time ago there must be help, because they want to make a good performance, they don't want to make mistakes", he said. Fernandinho was again outstanding in central midfield, Riyad Mahrez and David Silva were a joy to watch, the 21-year-old Gabriel Jesus looked every inch the long-term successor to Sergio Agüero while Raheem Sterling scored a magnificent goal.

"But today the game is quick, it's fast".

"In the end there must be help, because it takes three, four seconds or 10 seconds for someone to say it's no penalty, carry on, go".

Silva was clearly felled by Taras Stepanenko and Jesus fired into the top corner.
