  • Man City news Pep Guardiola and Riyad Mahrez

City, who are favourites to win this season's competition with some bookmakers, fell further behind before half-time - Lyon captain Fekir finding the net from 25 yards after Fernandinho gave the ball away inside his own half.

Manchester City assistant coach Mikel Arteta believes the Premier League champions have the best players in the world but that holders Real Madrid are favourites to win the Champions League again this season.

With the suspended City manager Pep Guardiola forced to watch from the stands, Fekir the made it 2-0 to the French side in the 43rd minute with a sweetly struck drive after being set-up by Memphis Depay.

"We started slow and we were not consistent in the way we were trying to play". We respect the decision.

"You wouldn't choose this situation but this is what is happening". "I can't really explain why we began so slowly, but sometimes in a new competition it takes a while to get on track", he said.

Once it's shut down for good, you'll need to head to this new gaming portal on the main YouTube site in order to browse content. But the most important reason behind the decision to retire this app is YouTube's desire to minimize user confusion.

Last season, City averaged 48,050 at the Etihad in the Champions League as they reached the quarter-finals.

"We didn't feel the flow around the team", said Arteta. "We would have taken 2-2 before the match but given the way the game went we'd have been disappointed not to leave with the three points".

Arteta, the former Everton and Arsenal midfielder, has established a good reputation as a coach and was heavily linked with the manager's post at Arsenal in the summer. "You all know some things that happened, the reality is I'm here and I'm very happy". He was a terrific player and he spends a lot of time with us. "I see them every day in training and I wouldn't change them for any others because they are fantastic".

City will come up against a side that includes a rejuvenated Memphis Depay, who endured a miserable 19-month spell at Manchester United before leaving Old Trafford in January previous year.

Striker Sergio Aguero and defender Benjamin Mendy will both be assessed.
