Pochettino flatly denies Man Utd job link

Gabriel Jesus completed Manchester City’s comeback to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 and secure a place in the round of 16 of the Champions League as group winners on Wednesday. PSG is also sure of going through as runner-up in Group A thanks to Leipzig beating Club Brugge 5-0. The clash of the competition’s wealthiest teams, who are yet to win European football’s top prize, fully came to life in the 50th minute when Kylian Mbappe put PSG ahead after an interchange between Lionel Messi and Neymar. But the attacking dominance by City that defined the first half saw Raheem Sterling’s outstretched left foot nudge in a cross from Kyle Walker to equalize in the 63rd. After Neymar missed a chance to restore PSG’s lead, Bernado Silva teeed up Gabriel Jesus who connected with scuffed shot that still beat Keylor Navas in the 76th. Follow all the latest updates below.

Man City 2 - 1 PSG

88 mins: Decent work from the home side. Maintain possession and spread the play into the wide areas. Jesus is fouled and a few more seconds eke away. City look comfortable. They’re managing the game well.

Man City 2 - 1 PSG

85 mins: PSG keep probing but can’t find a way through. Messi has dropped deeper to get more of the ball but City have everyone behind the ball.

PSG’s build up play is too slow, it’s comfortable for City to defend against.

Man City 2 - 1 PSG

82 mins: Into the last 10 minutes now. Man City have the advantage but Paris have seen more of the ball since they’ve gone behind.

Jesus attempts to play Sterling into the box but Marquinhos wins the ball and PSG sweep forward. It comes up to Messi but City’s defenders are on top of him immediately and he’s dispossessed.

79 mins: Joao Cancelo picks up a harsh yellow card after sliding into a challenge on Messi. Cancelo clearly wins the ball but can’t stop his slide and connects with Messi who flips over the Man City defender rather theatrically.

GOAL! Man City 2 - 1 PSG (Jesus, 76’)⚽️

76 mins: City have come from behind to lead against PSG! This is another great move from Man City. Mahrez brings the ball down the right side before coming inside. He flicks a diagonal ball to the far post where Bernardo Silva controls a first time pass to set up Gabriel Jesus. Jesus waits for the goalkeeper to move and then side-foots his finish to Navas’ left. Calm, cool, collected stuff from the Premier League champions.

Man City 1 - 1 PSG

75 mins: Chance! Massive chance for PSG to take the lead again. Messi gives the ball to Neymar who weaves around Rodri before a one-two with Di Maria takes him into the box. He shifts away from Dias, gets one-on-one with Ederson and belts his effort wide of the near post!

69 mins: Nuno Mendes and Idrissa Gueye are both taken off by Mauricio Pochettino with Angel di Maria and Junior Dina Ebimbe brought on.

Bernardo Silva slips the ball into the box for Sterling who shifts away from Marquinhos to open up sapce to shoot. The Paris centre-back sticks with him though and takes the ball when Sterling attempts to cut back onto his right foot.

Man City 1 - 1 PSG

66 mins: The noise level inside the Etihad has been ramped up a bit since that equaliser. Sterling has the ball out on the left side and gives it to Cancelo. He tries to pick out Jesus in the area but Kimpembe heads it clear. The clearance comes to Rodri in midfield and he sends the ball back in winning a corner for the home side.

GOAL! Man City 1 - 1 PSG (Sterling, 63’)⚽️

63 mins: Game on! It’s a beautifully worked goal from Man City. Walker makes a run in behind the PSG backline from deep and meets the ball after Rodri lifts it over the top from just outside the box. Walker cuts it back into the middle, there’s a deflection off Jesus and Sterling pokes it home at the back post! City are level. It’s no more than they deserve really.
