Kidd took temporary charge of City following Roberto Mancini's dismissal earlier this month, and watched the team come from three goals down to grab a last-gasp winner in St Louis.

City trailed to goals from Demba Ba, Cesar Azpilicueta and Oscar despite dominating the first half but Javi Garcia began the fightback before Edin Dzeko's double and a Micah Richards clincher.

Kidd said: "I thought we were unlucky to go in 2-0 down but the players were tremendous.

"They have had a tough couple of weeks after losing the manager and the FA Cup final. It has been a draining, emotional couple of weeks.

"They have done great work in New York with the appearances and events for the club, they have done great work.

"We only had one training session, so that might be the secret. You can't say enough about them."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
