Sterling strike’s a late winner as Manchester City secured top spot in Group F

Raheem Sterling struck a late winner as Manchester City secured top spot in Champions League Group F with a 1-0 win over Feyenoord.

The England international clipped home his 11th goal of the season after 88 minutes at the Etihad Stadium to extend City’s club-record winning run to 17 matches in all competitions.

It had otherwise been a rare flat performance from City – by recent standards at least – but Napoli’s convincing victory over Shakhtar Donestsk in the other group game meant they were always in control of their destiny.

Pep Guardiola made seven changes for the match, although he resisted calls to hand starts to highly-rated youngsters Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz, preferring instead to play them off the bench late on.
