When you fall off the horse, so the saying goes, you should get back on it as soon as possible.

So it is with football; redemption for a poor performance or a stinging, morale-sapping defeat is only ever 90 minutes away and back to form City pocketed three deserved points from an open and entertaining contest.

Having chased German shadows for much of Wednesday night’s damage limitation Champions League exercise, this was more like the thrusting, vibrant, dominant team that continues to head the betting lists for the Premier League title.

Despite their dominance in terms of chances created, the home side contrived to fall a goal behind after a series of defence errors in terms of positioning and tackling left loan signing Romelu Lukaka to fire through the exposed Joe Hart in the 16th minute.
