Munich (Germany) (AFP) - Manchester City's manager Manuel Pellegrini admitted keeping his stars fresh for Saturday's Premier League visit from leaders Arsenal had been a factor in their stunning 3-2 win at Bayern Munich. On a historic night for the club, City fought back from two-goals down to break the holders' record 10-match Champions League winning streak as Bayern coach Pep Guardiola suffered his first defeat in major competition with the German side. Bayern also fell to their first home defeat -- after 18 wins in Munich -- since losing 2-0 at home to Arsenal in last season's knock-out stages of the Champions League in March.
Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes says his team need to sharpen up their act before they can be considered one of the favourites to win the Champions League. United will avoid several European heavyweights in next week's draw for the last 16 after edging Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday to finish top of Group A. Phil Jones scored the game's only goal -- the first United had scored at Old Trafford in exactly a month -- as they got back to winning ways following successive home defeats by Everton and Newcastle United.
