City boss Pep Guardiola won his first game in charge of the Citizens thanks to a late own goal from Paddy McNair.

Gundogan joined City on a big money move from Borussia Dortmund over the summer but has yet to even play a friendly for his new club due to injury.

The Germany international of Turkish origin is not expected to return until the end of the month.

The 24-year-old is one of four Germany born ethnic Turks in the Premier League joining Liverpool star Emre Can, Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil and West Ham summer loanee Gokhan Tore.
