    The 22-year-old striker scored a match-winning acrobatic effort six minutes from time.

    He left Dortmund in the summer after scoring 86 goals in 89 games, so fans were well aware of just how deadly he is in the box.

    Bellingham embraced his former teammate after the game and could be seen on camera saying: “F*** sake, mate.”

    Yeah, that sums it up pretty well.

    And after the game he was even more exasperated when he learnt City scored with their first shot on target.

    He told BT Sport: “You’re kidding me? Stop… That’s what great teams can do. Erling isn’t always in the game but you give him half a sniff and he can make a goal.”

    Bellingham himself was impressive during the Champions League clash, scoring the opening goal of the game.

    The 19-year-old seems a shoe-in for a World Cup place in Qatar and it would come as no surprise to anyone if he starts every game.

    He got huge praise from City boss Pep Guardiola after his performance on Wednesday night.

    Guardiola said: “I was impressed with his goal. He’s now 19? I was impressed when he was 17, now he’s 19 he’s grown up.

    “He’s able to defensively to follow [Ilkay] Gundogan or Kevin [De Bruyne] and win the duels. Have the sense for the second position in the box, and score.

    “Exceptional player. I think everyone knows it, not because the manager of Man City is going to tell you. Everyone knows.”
