Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was at a loss to explain last night's 2-1 defeat to CSKA Moscow that has left his side's Champions League hopes hanging by a thread.
A first-half brace from Seydou Doumbia condemned the Citizens to a surprise loss at the Etihad Stadium, and the Chilean's misery was compounded by red cards to Yaya Toure an Fernandinho after the interval.

Dan Carter has missed out on a place in New Zealand's match-day 23 for the clash against England at Twickenham on Saturday.
The 32-year-old fly-half made his return from serious injury in the All Blacks victory over the United States last weekend, but head coach Steven Hansen has decided against selecting him.
And finally, Graeme McDowell made a flying start to the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, grabbing a two-shot lead with a first round 67 at Sheshan International.
