Manchester City's Pep Guardiola as he talks with Southampton's Nathan Redmond after the match

Bernard and Ismaily were on target at the Metalist Stadium to send Shakhtar through to the last 16 and boss Paulo Fonseca kept his promise post-match, having said he would dress up as Zorro - a fictional masked vigilante - if the Ukrainian giants progressed to the knockout round.

City now turn their attention to Sunday's crucial Manchester derby in which a victory against United would extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 11 points.

"It hurts. It is never nice to lose a game".

"We hoped we wouldn't lose any game this season".

"We know Man United have a very good team as well but we will play our game and try to control the match, to be better than them and bring the three points back home". Unfortunately, in football, it is very complicated to win all the games.

"We came here to win".

Ismaily nearly made it 3-0 in the 40th minute after being gifted space to turn and shoot on the edge of the box but his strike sailed over the bar.

City came up against a Shakhtar side fully motivated, needing to avoid defeat to join City in the last 16.

City were awarded a penalty in stoppage time that was converted by Aguero, but it was too little too late to save their ideal record. It will be good for the club, for all of us.

"I'm so pleased for Tosin (Adarabioyo), Phil (Foden) and Brahim (Diaz) and how well they played", he told BT Sport. We tried. People can not say we didn't come to try to win the game.

Pep Guardiola opted to rest a number first team regulars, as Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker were named among the substitutes, while David Silva was left out completely. Now we have to recover.
