Manchester sets a worst Champions record

Manchester City suffered a disappointing defeat to begin their 2018/19 Champions League campaign, with French side Lyon springing a shock at the Etihad.

Goals from Maxwel Cornet and Nabil Fekir sunk Pep Guardiola’s men, with Bernado Silva pulling one back in a 2-1 defeat. Guardiola was forced to watch on from the stands after being handed a touchline ban during City’s Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool last season.

He cut a miserable figure, undoubtedly frustrated that he was unable to pass on his message from the touchline.

And his team have now set a very unwanted record. City became the first English team in the history of the Champions League to lose four consecutive matches, having lost to Basel at home in the second leg of their last-16 tie before suffering back-to-back losses to Jurgen Klopp’s men in last season’s quarter-finals. Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta lamented the loss against the Ligue 1 outfit.
