Wilfred Ndidi, Harvey Barnes, Patson Daka and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall were on the scoresheet in the UEFA Europa Conference League.

“We created chances, which was very important – a positive for us because we knew we just had to keep calm and try to utilise the chances. We know the goals are going to come, we just have to keep calm and creating the chances.

“We knew that it was going to be difficult, but also we knew that we had to respond quickly in the second half, which we did very well. It gave us more direction to the second half.”

Daka now has nine goals for City in 23 appearances across all formats. Six of those have come in Europe, making him the Club’s leading goalscorer in European competition.

We were really good with the ball tonight – great one-on-ones on the wings, and we were creating chances.

He added: “It’s always good to be on the scoresheet, but because of the team effort, we had great movement and great combinations. I was just happy to be in the right place at the right time. I was scared I was offside, but thankfully it was given.

“He (Youri Tielemans) really had great, quick feet and I was just hoping that if the goalkeeper saves it, he’d force it to my direction, which happened, and I was glad that I scored.

“We were really good with the ball tonight – great one-on-ones on the wings, and we were creating chances. I think we frustrated them by keeping the ball, which was really important for us tonight. Thankfully, we got the positive result.”
