Speaking to BBC Sport after the game Pep Guardiola said: "They defend deep with 10 men so it is not easy even with one more player."

Still, it wasn't a difficult victory for Pep's team.

As part of Sky Sports' broadcast of the match, Yaya Toure provided punditry. At full-time he was given the pick of his former teammates to chose a best XI.

  • Rafael Marquez
  • Vincent Kompany
  • Andres Iniesta
  • Thierry Henry
  • Lionel Messi
  • Sergio Aguero
  • Leroy Sane
