Manchester, Oct 19: Substitute Sergio Aguero grabbed an injury-time winner as Manchester City beat Villarreal 2-1 on Tuesday, earning the Premier League leaders their first victory in Group A of the Champions League.


The Argentina striker met a cross from compatriot Pablo Zabaleta with a simple tap-in at the far post in the fourth minute of stoppage time to rescue the hosts.

Cani put Villarreal in front in the fourth minute at the Etihad Stadium after goalkeeper Joe Hart spilled Giuseppe Rossi's shot but City equalized through Carlos Marchena's own goal in the 43rd.

City's first ever Champions League victory lifted the team to within a point of second-place Napoli, and left Villarreal still searching for its first point after three games.
