Pep Guardiola made two changes from the FA Cup final last weekend, with Ederson replacing Stefan Ortega in goal and Manuel Akanji replacing Kyle Walker, while Inter started Edin Dzeko instead of Romelu Lukaku up forward.

Despite City having the majority of the ball, the game started slowly, with Bernardo Silva going near with a thunderous drive that flew just wide in the first ten minutes.

Meanwhile, Inter fared well in the first half to contain Manchester City’s attackers until the 26th minute, when Kevin de Bruyne put in Erling Haaland, who took one touch before blasting straight at Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi made his first substitution 10 minutes into the second half, replacing Dzeko with Lukaku, who had scored five goals in his previous five Serie A games.

However, it was Man City who broke the deadlock in the 67th minute, when Silva sprinted to the byline before bringing the ball back for Rodri, who finished first time.

Lukaku should have equalized in the 89th minute after being left alone in the six-yard box, but the Inter striker somehow shot his straight at Ederson in front of goal, and City held on to secure the treble.
