Late Silva victor gets Man City back on track in Europe

WHO GETS YOUR VOTE? Watch four September strikes

Manchester City overcame a first-minute setback to relaunch their Champions League campaign with what manager Pep Guardiola hailed as an "important" 2-1 victory at Hoffenheim, clinched by a late David Silva victor, on Tuesday.

Sergio Aguero's equaliser seven minutes later seemed to have set them back on course as they dominated most of the match but the Bundesliga side, set up in an attacking 4-3-3 mode and risky on the break, held firm until Silva cashed in on a late defensive error.

Manchester City have got off to a strong start in the Premier League, picking up 19 points in their first seven games. Former Schalke youngster Leroy Sane starts in attack.

The City players arrived back in England in high spirits after getting their European campaign back on track in Germany on Tuesday night.

While Manchester City and Liverpool sail into a new week in confident mood, Tottenham are still yet to entirely convince while Manchester United's crisis shows no signs of abating.

Hoffenheim: Baumann 7, Brenet 7, Kaderabek 7, Demirbay 7, Grillitsch 7, Belfodil 8, Hoogma 7, Akpoguma 7, Szalai 7, Joelinton 7, Posch 7.

City are current league leaders but Liverpool are second down to goal difference.

Here you will find all the latest videos from Manchester City, including, all Premier League goals, highlights, behind-the-scenes footage, training and much more. Silva passes to Sane, who squares it for Aguero to knock in as a matter of utmost simplicity.

In front of him, Fernandinho, David Silva and Bernardo Silva pick themselves given their current form, particularly the Portuguese playmaker.

But Bernardo Silva nearly conjured the goal that would have given the visitors the lead, crossing for Aguero whose header was clutched by Baumann.

City threatened again on 32 minutes when Sane managed to get the ball away to Aguero again, but he could only fire over.

However, on 87 minutes City's pressure and resolve was finally rewarded when David Silva struck a superb goal to secure a wonderful victory.
