Wake up from your European slumber, Man City

COME ON, CITY: Sergio Aguero has one goal - in the 1-1 draw with Roma - after two Champions League games for Man City.

There's no room for any more stumbles.

With a solitary point from their opening two Group E matches, Manchester City must resurrect their flagging European hopes with a win over CSKA Moscow tonight if they wish to have a decent chance of progressing to the knock-out round.

They headed to Moscow with plenty going for them.

An emphatic 4-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Premiership on Saturday applied timely lubricant to a spluttering engine.

Sergio Aguero's superb performance, which saw him notch all four goals against Spurs, is bound to instil much fear in their Russian opponents.

CSKA will have no support at the Arena Khimki for City's visit - a price the club are paying for their fans' unruly and racist behaviour.

Manuel Pellegrini's men have to just turn up and deliver the goods. It's easier said than done.
