Arteta ready to step into suspended Guardiola's shoes

Guardiola will not be allowed any contact with his players or backroom staff inside the Etihad Stadium and will have to watch from the stands as City bid to make a winning start in Group F. The difference tomorrow is we will have some rules you must respect. The reality is Pep wasn't here and we lost the game.

The woodwork came to Lyon's rescue in the 17th minute as Jason Denayer, on loan from City, deflected Raheem Sterling's effort onto the crossbar.

"I think that is a good point because we discussed it at half-time and before the game as well". We reacted really well. "We have had a big wake-up call, a result we were not expecting, but it is early in the group stage and it is not too late to respond". "Now you have to go and win away from home".

Arteta claimed his side's reaction in the second half was superb, not an adjective that many Mancunians present would have selected, although he was probably correct in saying City created more chances after the interval than before it, even if that was not saying a lot.

They also became the first English side in Champions League history to lose four consecutive matches in the competition having also been beaten in last season's quarter-final second leg by Basel, as well as both legs of the semi-final against Liverpool.

Silva admitted City had lacked their usual high tempo and desire.

He said: "I didn't talk about that two or three months ago and I don't think today is the day to talk about it".

"To concede two goals like we did is very frustrating", Stones said.

"We felt under threat every time we lost the ball and sometimes that brings the confidence a little bit lower", said City assistant manager Mikel Arteta, who was in charge on the bench in Guardiola's absence.
