86' Aleix García enters the game and replaces Navas.

84' Boro are still in with a chance of grabbing an equaliser, as Fischer dances down the left. Negredo is fed possession on the edge of the box by the substitute, but Kolarov steps out at the right time to make a timely interception.
82' Adama drives down the right and bends in a cross, but Negredo is unable to make contact with it at the back post.

80' Adama Traore gives away a free-kick for handball, but Man City opt to play the ball short. Guardiola's men are maintaining possession well. De Bruyne breaks into the box and gets picked out by Fernandinho. The Belgian goes down due to a nudge from Friend, but the referee isn't interested.
78' V. Fischer enters the game and replaces S. Downing.
Fischer is injected into the fray for the late stages, with Downing replaced by the pacey Danish winger.
