First we head off to the Eredivise, a league of particular interest to City fans this season.
Enes Unal and Bersant Celina combined to deadly effect again for FC Twente’s second goal in their 2-2 draw with PEC Zwolle.
Celina picked the ball up in midfield space before sliding an exquisite pass through for Unal to fire his left footed strike into the roof of the net.
Yaw Yeboah started alongside Unal and Celina but was subbed in the 65th minute.
Sinan Bytyqi played the full 90 minutes in centre midfield as Go Ahead Eagles lost 3-0 to Utrecht.
Olexandr Zinchenko continued in his second half substitute role for PSV who drew 1-1 with Heracles. Shay Facey was an unused sub during Heerenveen’s 3-0 win over Groningen.
In the Eerste Divisie now, where the NAC Breda of Brandon Barker, Ashley Smith-Brown and David Faupala lost 2-0 at Telstar. Barker and Smith-Brown played the full match while Faupala remained an unused substitute.
In Italy, Joe Hart’s Torino will face Palermo tonight with the chance to move into the top four if they beat their struggling opponents.
Olivier Ntcham was an unused substitute as Genoa were held to a goalless draw by Empoli.
Off to the sunny shores of Spain now, where it was a mixed weekend for the on-loan Blues.
Samir Nasri played a crucial role yet again as Sevilla beat minnows Leganes to move within a point of both Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid at the top of La Liga. The French midfielder scored Sevilla’s second in the win.
Manu Garcia again didn’t feature for Alaves as they drew 1-1 with Malaga.
Bruno Zuculini played no part in Segunda Liga Rayo Vallecano’s 3-3 draw with Numancia.
In Denmark, Zack Faour wasn’t involved for FC Midtjylland’s senior side as they beat Aalborg 2-0.
Patrick Roberts was a 62nd-minute sub as Celtic continued their imperious Scottish Premiership form with a 2-0 win at Motherwell.
Back in England, the sides of our two Premier League loanees faced off this weekend as Stoke beat Sunderland 2-0. Wilfried Bony looked dangerous as he played 76 minutes for Stoke but Jason Denayer sat out for Sunderland as he begins his recovery from a muscle injury.
In the lower leagues, Kean Bryan was sent off as Bury were beaten 2-0 at local rivals Rochdale – neither Jack Byrne (Blackburn) or (Fleetwood Town) played over the weekend.
