City saw a two-goal lead slip against Manchester United in the Community Shield to lose 3-2 in a gut-wrenching derby at Wembley.

Goals from Joleon Lescott and Edin Dzeko had put the Blues in command against the Reds, but Chris Smalling and Nani had levelled the scores before the hour-mark as both sides served up a Sunday afternoon treat for the watching millions around the world.

But it was an uncharacteristic mistake from skipper Vincent Kompany let in Nani deep into injury time as a penalty shoot-out had loomed.

Starting the new season with a Manchester derby at Wembley is a new experience, but one every Blue could get used to, though obviously with a different outcome next time around.
