Pep Guardiola choose a star man Raheem Sterling once again for his extraordinary appearance Manchester City win over Atalanta.
City fell behind earlier but stormed back with Raheem Sterling scoring a hat-trick and Sergio Aguero as a hold they destroyed Atalanta 5-1 at Etihad.
"That's a very good result. The way Atalanta played created it. It was a match between players throughout the stadium, it was uncomfortable, we were not accustomed to playing against these teams.
"It's not surprising Atalanta finished last season in Italy third and even this season, they played well so it was an amazing result. There are three more points. One more victory and we will be in the next stage.
"Raheem Sterling is very smart. He can just print one more. Not only with the ball, without the ball, he helped us a lot. "
Rodri limped off in the first half to be replaced by John Stones – who was reviled by Pep for not being ready – and Phil Foden was sent off in the second period, to worsen the outcome for City.
