who did that?

Did John Stones score after ninety seconds or was it the funniest own goal of the season so far?

Man City took the lead in the opening exchanges against Feyenoord but whose goal was it?

The Champions League raced out of the blocks tonight.

Man City were the first team to break the deadlock across Europe although we’re not entirely sure who will get the credit.

Did he? Didn’t he?

Did he? Didn’t he?

John Stones appeared to head home after just ninety seconds in Rotterdam.

But replays showed that Feyenoord’s Tony Vilhena may have inadvertently scored the most comical own goal of the season so far.

Even with replays it was difficult to tell whether Stones’ header would have sneaked into the bottom corner without the embarrassing deflections off Vilhena.

Debates raged on social media but as it stands UEFA have spared the Feyenoord midfielder’s blushes somewhat by crediting the goal to Stones.

For all the Dream Team managers with the England international in their team, don’t worry, we’ve given it to him as well.

Yep, another one…

There was no debate about City’s second, Sergio Aguero expertly guiding the ball home at the near post — the kind of finish only a natural-born forward could produce.

Gabriel Jesus then made it 3-0 before 25 minutes with a simple tap-in after the Dutch champions’ defence abandoned their post believing the Brazilian starlet to be offside.

However, it was inactive Nicolas Otamendi who was offside while Jesus was perfectly placed.

Cue phone call celebration.

A happy evening for the boss

A happy evening for the boss

An unhappy return to Champions League football for Feyenoord but it seems another stress-free win for Pep Guardiola’s side is on the cards.
