Manchester City added the Super Cup to their Champions League triumph and although it may appear a far lesser trophy they celebrated as wildly as they did back in Istanbul, APA reports citing the Telegraph.

This time it came down to a penalty shoot-out with Sevilla defender Nemanja Gudelj crashing the decisive kick against the cross-bar with City players tearing jubilantly across the pitch.

In December, City head to Saudi Arabia for the Club World Cup, aiming for a clean sweep of the international cups they can win in this calendar year and determined to make history.

But they were far from their best here and were dependent on Cole Palmer to drag them back into the game after Sevilla spurned a series of chances.

Drenched in sweat - it was still 26C when the game finished after midnight – it remains to be seen how much it has taken out on City who host Newcastle United at 8pm on Saturday in the Premier League.
