Although it is unclear where it came from, the referee could be seen handing a hip flask to the fourth official after complaints from both sets of players.

City took the lead in the first half after Raheem Sterling tapped home from close range after his penalty was saved by Rui Patricio.

The England international was a relieved man after being forced to re-take the spot-kick following encroachment by both sets of players.

His first attempt was saved by Patricio but, after saving the second effort, the Portugal international could do nothing to stop Sterling tapping in from mere metres.

The returning Sergio Aguero was the fall guy, coming off for number two Claudio Bravo.
