Defender Aymeric Laporte felt City demonstrated their battling qualities as they overcame controversy to snatch a dramatic win. 

City recovered from a VAR row and a contentious red card to claim a dramatic win at the Veltins Arena.

‘The team have the quality to make these kind of things (happen). We are very happy that we won this game. I think it was difficult. It is not easy playing with 10 guys in the pitch against 11.

‘Now we have to be focused on the next game and the next one, always keep improving and win these kind of games.’
