City got the better of Sevilla 3-1 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville in the Group D encounter to book their place in the last 16 of Europe’s premier club competition.

Former City winger Sinclair was following the match, and he was impressed with the performance and delighted with the result.
