Manchester City progressed into the knock-out stages of the Champions League following a 5-2 victory over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night.

Sergio Aguero’s first-half double, plus a hat-trick from Alvaro Negredo sealed the win, while Seydou Doumbia netted two for the Russians.

Tuesday’s European clash inevitably caused a flurry of reaction on Twitter, and here are our favourite updates, in chronological order:

Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) would have been happy with City’s result, although Madrid let him down: “Vaughan midweek treble special… Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Man City all to win… #NoBrainer #Kerching #Keepthefaith”

Wigan midfielder James McArthur (@jamesmcarthur16) was quick to comment on the form of Aguero: “Aguero is on fire #goals”

And former City attacker Darren Huckerby (@hucks6dh6) echoed that view: “Sergio Aguero is a fabulous player #TopDraw #Mcfc”

Before half-time Match of the Day host Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) pointed out City’s hot streak in front of goal: “Manchester City have scored 10 goals in their last two hours of football.”

City midfielder Yaya Toure (Toure_yaya42) was delighted to have qualified from the group: “We have our place in the knockout round of the Champions League tonight. It feels so Good.”

And man-of-the-match Sergio Aguero ‏(@aguerosergiokun) echoes his skipper’s sentiments: “Very proud of the team and the qualification. And thanks to all the people of @MCFC for their support, they deserve this and much more!”
