Manchester City thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 6-0 at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night to go top of Group F with 9 points. The superb performance was overshadowed by a dubious penalty awarded to the hosts after Raheem Sterling scuffed the surface with no contact from the defender.
However, Gabriel Jesus will not care because he stepped up to convert the penalty. Pep Guardiola side got another penalty and he scored that too before completing his hat-trick with another goal in the 92nd minute. The next match for City is a derby against Manchester United this coming weekend.
