Matt Le Tissier mocks Martin Keown for Aguero comment during Schalke 2-3 Man City

Gillette Soccer Saturday Live with Jeff Stelling

Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling will deservedly steal headlines following Manchester City's 3-2 victory over Schalke 04 on Wednesday.

Heading into the last five minutes, City were 2-1 behind and down to 10 men because of Nicolas Otamendi's 68th-minute red card.

Sergio Aguero had opened the scoring for the away side before two penalties in the space of seven minutes from Nabil Bentaleb gave Schalke the lead.

Defeat seemed inevitable for City, but in the 85th minute, Sane scored a stunning 25-yard free-kick against his former club to level the scores.

And five minutes later, Pep Guardiola's men were 3-2 ahead.

Ederson's 70-yard pass from deep inside his own half - which you can watch here - fell straight to the feet of Sterling, who made no mistake in a one-on-one situation.

Victory means City have the advantage heading into the second leg and Guardiola deserves huge credit for the changes he made at 2-1 down.

The Spaniard replaced Sergio Aguero with Sane in the 78th minute and the German winger drew City level seven minutes later.

Sterling was also pushed further forward when Aguero came off and, sure enough, the England international bagged a 90th-minute winner.


It was a fantastic game of football to watch for neutral fans, but they did have one problem with it: Martin Keown's commentary alongside Ian Darke.

Keown was slammed on social media throughout the game for some of the comments he made and even Matt Le Tissier got involved with one particular incident.

When Guardiola brought off Aguero, Keown said in the commentary box: "You don't see that very often."

But Le Tissier quickly pointed out that Aguero has actually been substituted a lot this season as a way of mocking Keown.

Keown really doesn't help himself sometimes and it's clear that football fans enjoyed Le Tissier's tweet, which has received over 20,000 engagements so far.

Nevertheless, City are now in a strong position to reach the Champions League quarter-finals and Guardiola has called on his players to improve if they're going to challenge for the trophy.

"We're not ready to fight for the Champions League," City's manager said. "We gave away the goals and the red card.

"They didn't have a shot on target and scored twice. If they'd scored a third or fourth then maybe we're out. We played incredibly well. I'm delighted but it's not enough."
