Three goals in 11 minutes helped Manchester City come from behind to beat Monaco 5-3 in their Champions League last 16 first leg clash on Tuesday night.

And if City don't win comprehensively at Etihad, Monaco have all the artillery to rip them into shreds in the second-leg in France.

What threatened to be nightmare opening tie for Pep Guardiola's side turned into one of the classic European ties as momentum shifted back and forth between the two sides and saw heroes become villains within minutes.

"A complete team. It is the most successful team in Europe in terms of scoring goals and a tough draw". Everything is open. We played against incredible players, who were quick on the counter attack and in the midfield, and strong physically.

It's called the "Scorpion 3", and it's being called the first fully-manned "hovering bike" in the world. It can reach speeds of 30 miles per hour and it can support a single rider weighing up to 19 stones.

Guardiola was keen to stress that the match is far from over. In a damning indictment of his defense, he said City would have to score in the second leg on March 15 to stand any chance of going through.

"They always arrived with 6, 7 players and I haven't seen a team attack with so many good players for a long time".

They both scored for Atletico, last season's losing finalist, along with Saul Niguez and Fernando Torres. It is not easy to play against a team (that are as) quick (as) they are, (as) good.

Fabinho, a full-back who can also play as a defensive midfielder, is reportedly of interest to City, the Gunners and Manchester United.

Guardiola was incensed in his technical area, revealing afterward his frustration at being unable to control a chaotic game.

And ASM had the chance to extend their lead five minutes into the second period, but Falcao struck a weak penalty straight at Caballero after the Colombian was brought down in the box by Otamendi.

"Should the former Bayern Munich boss choose to go down this route and leave Aguero on the bench yet again, then Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane or Nolito could prove effective options to play in the false nine role".

The fifth came eight minutes from the end when Silva fed the ball through to Aguero and he slid the ball across for Sane to tap home. "I am very much focused on Monaco and (the City) game".

"All of Europe is going to watch us, to analyse us, to kill us if we don't win, to say how good we are when we win and that experience is lovely to me", said Guardiola.
