The Citizens were 1-0 down to Idrissa Gueye’s lashing effort seven minutes into the match, but Pep Guardiola’s men responded with chances of their own.
Kevin De Bruyne lifted a glorious cross onto Raheem Sterling’s forehead and the Englishman flicked the header towards a beaten Gianluigi Donnarumma’s goal.
The ball bounced back off the crossbar and essentially fell into Silva’s lap. With Donnarumma stranded a simple tap-in would suffice. Instead, the Portuguese maestro leaned back that little too far – and watched the ball rise back onto the woodwork.
