      Borussia Monchengladbach win their sixth straight Bundesliga match with a 4-1 victory in Berlin; last-gasp City see off Norwich, while Sevilla lose to Villareal
      Hertha Berlin 1-4 Borussia Monchengladbach

      Borussia Monchengladbach sealed a sixth successive league win by beating Hertha Berlin 4-1 to move up to fifth in the Bundesliga.

      Two goals in as many minutes saw Gladbach quickly gain the upper hand in the German capital.

      Oscar Wendt put the visitors in front after 26 minutes, firing in off the inside of the post, and just moments later Raffael doubled their lead when his shot deflected past Rune Jarstein after a fine dribbling run through Hertha’s defence.

      Granit Xhaka added a third from the penalty spot before Alexander Baumjohann pulled one back for the hosts, also from 11 metres out.

      There would, however, be time for a fourth Gladbach goal, Havard Nordtveit finding the target in stoppage time to maintain his side’s highly impressive Bundesliga form leading into their Group D clash with Juventus on Tuesday.

      Manchester City 2-1 Norwich

      Manchester City left it late to beat Norwich on Saturday, as Yaya Toure netted an 89th minute penalty to seal a 2-1 win at Etihad Stadium.

      After a goalless first-half, Nicolas Otamendi headed the hosts in front in the 67th minute, but it looked like they might have to settle for a point when the Canaries drew level on 83 minutes, Cameron Jerome capitalising on City keeper Joe Hart’s error.

      The goal triggered a dramatic last ten minutes to the encounter, as Toure converted from the spot after Russell Martin's red card for handball.

      Manuel Pellegrini’s men even had a chance to double the margin of victory when Aleksandar Kolarov missed a penalty in injury time, but it would not matter as the hosts held on for three points which keeps them top of the Premier League and above second-placed Arsenal on goal difference.

      Villareal 2-1 Sevilla

      Sevilla fell to a first league defeat since late September, losing 2-1 to Villareal on Saturday evening.

      Mario Gaspar put the hosts in front after 25 minutes and the Spanish full-back had a part to play in his side’s second strike just after the hour mark, when his cross found Denis Suarez and the former Rojiblancos man in turn picked out top scorer Cedric Bakambu, who made no mistake with a close-range finish.

      Sevilla were forced to play with only ten men when Kevin Gameiro came off injured after Unai Emery had already made all three substitutions.

      Despite the numerical disadvantage, former Juventus forward Fernando Llorente gave the visitors hope of snatching a point after heading home in the 76th minute, but it would prove to be a consolation goal as Villareal held on to their first La Liga win in over a month.
