Ajustar Comentario Impresión

Football. Champions League. Feyenoord - Manchester City.

The odds overwhelmingly favour a City win, although the last time they visited Dutch soil, they lost 3-1 to Ajax in the group stage in 2012. "It depends on the player". These are matters we need to be sharp about. He wants to be around the team, in that environment. "We will have to ensure we aren't naive". But of course I am satisfied.

What fans do not often take into account is what fixtures fall when in the group stage. He's an under-rated cog in this proverbial City machine.

Jonathan is ESPN FC's Manchester City correspondent. I know how they play. Like Stones, he was good in the air and read the game well. Guardiola will be uncompromising on Toure's contribution to training, his attitude and physique.

Couple that with temperatures rarely getting much above minus 10 and it becomes clear it may not be as easy as everybody thinks. He was our first big money, big name signing and I for one was excited.

Guardiola also rubbished claims by rival Jose Mourinho that English clubs are at a disadvantage in the Champions League. This promises to be a tough game for the Blues, but City can be considered favorites for a few reasons. It was a walk in the park after that. Hopefully, the players can enjoy being here.

Full backing of the board and the tools to take on anyone in Europe, without fear of losing his job. He knows the reason why.

Pep Guardiola and the club medical staff will assess the condition of the £35million star ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Feyenoord. "It's a 'sportive' decision". "He was so important last season".

Feyenoord host a rampant City side still on a high after mauling Liverpool 5-0 in the Premier League last Saturday. He will play soon.

The 31-year-old picked up an injury while on international duty with Belgium. "We are taking care of him", Guardiola said.

"Juventus, because they were champions in Italy three months in advance, they could play the last month with a second team".

The main selection dilemma Guardiola faces on Wednesday, though, is the inclusion of Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva, with both players providing a good account of themselves in each of their previous outings.

But after acquiring one of the world's top coaches in Guardiola and backing him in the transfer market, Owen believes City must now start to deliver.
