Manchester City official Twitter: 'We could have nicked it'

Manchester City Etihad 2

Demolished 3-1 by Bayern Munich, Manchester City's official Twitter account felt perhaps it was still a game from which they could have gained a point.

After two disappointing Champions League seasons in a row, Manchester City might have felt they were due a bit of luck. And then they were drawn in a group with Bayern Munich.

The holders visited the Etihad last night and put on an absolute clinic from start to finish, winning 3-1 - and this was without the injured Javi Martinez and Thiago Alcantara.

Bayern Munich had a dominant 66 per cent possession, having 20 shots on goal to City's nine. Ribery, Robben and Muller scored the goals while City substitute Alvaro Negredo netted a late consolation.

Yet despite Bayern's brilliance, Manchester City's official Twitter feed suggested they were not too far away from claiming a point.

Well, you can't blame them for being optimistic. They did at least go onto praise Bayern's win as 'deserved'.

City fans what did you make of last night's loss?
