Manchester City marched into the Champions League knockout stage with an impressive 3-1 win over Sevilla in Spain.
City produced one of their greatest European performances as they raced into a 2-0 lead with goals from Raheem Sterling and the outstanding Fernandinho inside 11 minutes at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium.
Benoit Tremoulinas pulled one back for last year’s Europa League winners but Wilfried Bony put City back in control before the break and they eased to a victory that puts them top of Group D.
Navas, revelling back on his old stomping ground, was the provider after a good run down the right and Bony tucked away his shot coolly from in front of goal.

The draw between Borussia Monchengladbach and Juventus in the group’s other fixture meant that City had ensured qualification with two games to spare. After their past struggles in the competition, this was a landmark moment for City under Manuel Pellegrini.
