Paul Scholes - Jose Mourinho 'embarrasing' for Manchester United

Liverpool are fancied to get a draw in Napoli

Liverpool are fancied to get a draw in Napoli

City suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Lyon in their first Group F game while Hoffenheim drew 2-2 at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Seven of the last 8 of the matches involving Hoffenheim has seen over 2.5 goals and in all 8 of those matches, we saw both teams find the back of the net.

The Spanish forward struck from a narrow angle with three minutes remaining after pouncing on a loose ball ahead of 21-year-old defender Stefan Posch.

City fell behind to a goal from Ishak Belfodil inside 60 seconds at the Rheine-Neckar-Arena and while Sergio Agüero soon equalised they had to wait until the 87th minute for Silva's finish to claim victory.

"It's too early to be defining but it certainly has the feeling that a lot more is at play than the three points".

This is Turkey's fourth defeat in the last five Euro bidding races and they had been hoping to mark the republic's 100th anniversary in 2024 by staging their first major global football tournament.

"He's one of the best players I've trained".

Ian Livermore, 65, from south Gloucestershire said the speech was "superb" and showed why Johnson should be leader. Satirist Kaya Marr holds a painting mocking MP Boris Johnson outside the conference in Birmingham on Tuesday.

City also made an uncertain start to the second half as Florian Grillitsch's long-range effort flew just over and they survived another scare when Ederson missed a header attempting to clear a long ball from Baumann.

In Hoffenheim's only previous meeting with English opponents, they lost 6-3 on aggregate to Liverpool in the 2017-18 Champions League qualifying play-off round.

It may be a stretch to say the loss to Lyon had derailed City's bid for the most sought-after trophy in European football, but it certainly cast further doubts over their pedigree in this tournament.

The visitors pushed for a victor, with Aguero and Raheem Sterling both thwarted by Oliver Baumann in the Hoffenheim goal.

The second half started in the same fashion as the first, and United had to wait until the 60th minute for a sight at goal when Paul Pogba forced Neto into save with a free-kick from distance.

"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.

However, Silva popped up with the victor to delight City's travelling fans.
