  • Mikel Arteta- Mikel Arteta Manchester City paid the price for mistakes in home defeat to Lyon

Fabian Delph miscued a routine clearance to allow Maxwel Cornet's 26th-minute opener after Fernandinho's slack pass and worse was to come for the Brazil worldwide as he was bundled out of possession by Nabil Fekir before the Lyon captain fired in the Ligue 1 side's second shortly before the break.

"We started a little bit slow and lost many duels", said Arteta, who can not have enjoyed his first audition as one of the potential candidates eventually to replace Guardiola as City manager.

City's troubles deepened when Fernandinho was caught in possession again. We just need to play like this more often and results will come.

City had improved but two minutes before half time, Lyon doubled their advantage when Fekir was given the space to run towards goal and the France worldwide took his time before drilling a low strike into the bottom corner from 20 yards out.

The Spaniard - who conducted Tuesday's pre-match press conference ahead of facing Lyon in the Champions League due to Guardiola's touchline ban - was one of the favourites to succeed Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

However, while Arteta has insisted that the Man City squad are hungry for more success, he also admitted that he thinks current holders Real Madrid should be the favourites to win Europes most prestigious competition this season.

Asked about almost leaving City, Arteta said: 'In football it's so hard to predict things.

"But that means we're doing things really well".
