Manchester City slumped to their first defeat of the season with a 2-1 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in their final Champions League Group F game.First-half goals from Brazilian pair Bernard and Ismaily stunned Pep Guardiola's side on a freezing night at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv, with Sergio Aguero's injury-time penalty too late to affect the outcome.The result mattered little for City, with top place in the group already assured, but the tame end to their dazzling 20-game winning streak was hardly the ideal preparation for this weekend's Manchester derby.For Shakhtar the win prompted jubilant celebrations, with a place in the last 16 now secured.
