Horrific footage was shot as City’s plane attempted to land in Manchester after Tuesday’s 5-0 win over Sporting Lisbon.

The city plane had to make three rounds before it was considered too dangerous to land.
And instead he was forced to change the middle air route to land in Liverpool.
Strong winds meant the plane could not land at Manchester Airport, causing a 31-mile delay.
The club issued a brief statement. Twitter “We can confirm that the plane carrying the first team home from Lisbon landed safely in Liverpool, when strong winds forced it to turn from Manchester,” it said.
Hurricane Dudley has brought severe weather conditions to Manchester, with the Met Office issuing a “life-threatening” warning throughout the region.

‘Closer to a better team’
Former player Owen Hargreaves was impressed with the performance and said on BT Sport after the game: “There is no such thing as perfection, but they are as close to a great team as anyone at the moment.
“While they are as clinical and effective as they were in the first half, I don’t think anyone can get close to them.
“In the second half, if anything, they took their foot off the gas because there was only one bullet in their target. I don’t know how you beat them, I’ll be honest.
“Before we used to look at them and say ‘they’ll give you a chance’. They don’t give you a chance anymore.”
