UEFA Champions League Report: Manchester United v Valencia 02 October 2018

United turned out another desperately dire performance with a goalless draw in their Champions League clash with Valencia on Tuesday evening with many fans booing at full-time.

However, the lead was short-lived as Sergio Aguero leveled scores for Man City, six minutes later to make it 1-1.

Silva poached the victor on 87 minutes when he reacted quickest to nick the ball off Hoffenheim defender Stefan Posch on the penalty spot and fire home. "A win in Germany is always so complicated and we will learn so it's a good three points because we fought against a lot of things", he said, before admitting City were tentative before the break.

Sunday's fixture will also be each side's last chance to stake their claim for top spot before heading into the worldwide break.

The English club suffered a surprising 3-1 loss to West Ham in Premier League play over the weekend, and there also is speculation over the futures of manager Jose Mourinho and superstar midfielder Paul Pogba.

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.


Raheem Sterling was denied by Oliver Baumann at the end of a strong run and Aguero volleyed over on the stretch after excellent trickery from Sane, with City piling on the pressure.

But that stung the visitors into life and when Silva deftly picked out Leroy Sane, the former Schalke star squared for Aguero - who overcame a foot injury to retain his place - to tap home.

"I don't want to talk about the officials, I want to be on the bench, with my players in the next game", he said.

Guardiola - only just back from a touchline ban - was spoken to by Skomina for protesting when Silva was prevented from taking a quick throw.

Manchester City boss Guardiola never faced Nagelsmann during his time in the Bundesliga, with the latter taking over at Hoffenheim in February 2016 - just a couple of weeks after Bayern Munich had beaten them at the Allianz Arena.
