Man City battle to draw with Atalanta

Manchester City battled to draw with Atalanta in the Champions League after defender Kyle Walker had to go in goal for the closing stages of the match.

The full-back replaced Claudio Bravo after the substitute goalkeeper was sent off during the 1-1 draw in Milan.

Bravo was shown a straight red for a sliding tackle on Josip Ilicic outside the box, having replaced first-choice keeper Ederson at half-time.

Raheem Sterling had given the Blues a 1-0 lead in the first half before Chelsea loannee Mario Pasalic equalised four minutes after the restart.

City striker Gabriel Jesus also missed a penalty in the first half in a bizarre game at the San Siro.
