City sank the Yellow Submarine and re-floated their own Uefa Champions League ambitions on a night of high winds and high drama.

After securing just one point from the opening two matches in Group A, the Blues finally chalked up a win in the competition and at the same time left Villarreal scraping bottom of the table and seemingly fatally holed.

But it took a disputed injury time winner - the Spaniards protested long and loud that it was offisde - from Sergio Aguero to seal a first ever win in Europe’s premier club competition.

Indeed it wasn’t plain sailing from the off for the Blues who fell behind to Ruben Cani’s prodded fourth minute goal after an initial shot was beaten away by Joe Hart.
