Manchester City win but Borussia Monchengladbach's Twitter account steals the show

After a rain delay and an extra night’s kip, Manchester City v Borussia Monchengladbach finally kicked off – and for the City fans at least, it was worth the wait.

It didn’t take Sergio Aguero long to make his mark, scoring in the eighth minute to break the deadlock.

And the Argentinian made it a hat-trick with two more to put the game out of sight.

The icing on top of Pep Guardiola’s European cake was a goal from his in-form youngster, Kelechi Iheanacho.

And this is a big statement. We’re sure fans of Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest have something to say about this…

Although it was Pep’s side who won on the night, it was Gladbach’s Twitter account that stole the show. They had already started sassing City before a ball was kicked.

And as the Aguero party started, Gladbach’s gifs were in full flow.

You have to admire the sense of humour!

No points for a joke well made though, we’re afraid to say.
