It took less than 15 minutes for Sevilla to realize that they were once again outmatched by the Premier League’s most dangerous side, Manchester City.
With Sergio Aguero and David Silva still injured, and with Kevin De Bruyne waiting patiently on the bench, it was Fernandinho who took control this week and fired the Citizens into the Champions League knockout stage.
Without even being at full strength and with yet another giveaway goal, Man City still managed to dominate Sevilla, the reigning Europe League champions en route to a 3-1 victory, and passed Juventus into first place in Group D, guaranteeing themselves a place in the next round in the process.
Here are the Manchester City player ratings from their win over Sevilla.
