Europa League : Lech Poznan 3 - 1 Man City

Manchester City suffered a third straight defeat in all competitions as they were well beaten by Polish side Lech Poznan in Europa League Group A.
City started well but it was hosts Lech who opened the scoring, Dimitrije Injac fizzing in a low strike from distance.

Emmanuel Adebayor's close-range finish pulled the visitors level and David Silva volleyed against the crossbar. A 1-1 draw seemed likely until Manuel Arboleda inadvertently nodded in and Mateusz Mozdzen rifled a fine third.

I know it's a second tier European competition, and that Man City fielded a weak line-up, and that City will "probably" still qualify from this group ...

But for a club that has spent such a lot of money over the last two years - this is a pretty poor level of performance - and hardly a good return on the cash being spent.

Will boss Roberto Mancini become the fallguy for this slump in form?
