Manchester City manager Gareth Taylor told the BBC: “It’s a tough one to take and I think that shows everything. I thought we were off it a little bit in the first half, got a lifeline just before half-time and then turned the game around in ten minutes of the second half.

“At that point we looked like we were finding our rhythm but if you come away and score three goals and still don’t get anything out of the game - even a draw - it tells you everything about what we were like without the ball.”
