Manchester City 5-3 Monaco

Manchester city owner Sheikh Mansour took over the club in 2008

The little Argentinian has always been one of the best in the world, and City can't hope to reach the promised land of Wales without him.

"People can think Manchester City have to be here but a lot of big clubs are not here", said the 46-year-old. But no, we are lucky guys.

An extraordinary game ended 5-3 as Manchester City put one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

"All of Europe is going to watch us, to analyse us, to kill us if we don't win, to say how good we are when we win and that experience is lovely to me", said Guardiola.

Chelsea are believed to be keen on a trio of Monaco stars - Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Thomas Lemar - but how they did they get on against Pep Guardiola's men?

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City will be harshly criticsed for a loss to Monaco on Tuesday. We have watched them in their past five or six games. But when he plays attacking midfielder he runs in behind.

Jardim is not surprised Fabinho has attracted interest from elsewhere and said he rates the 23-year-old as "one of the best players in his position in Europe".


Going into next year City have three options now on the books, re-sign Gael Clichy, move Kolorav back to left-back and away from filling in at CB, or promote one of the younger players.

Interestingly, Manchester are actually playing their backup keeper in this match, with Willy Caballero between the sticks instead of Claudio Bravo. Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus are both long-term absentees for City.

After that, it was all Manchester City, Aguero's side volley made it 3-3. The Argentine forward failed to make an impression against Huddersfield, but will look to cement his place with a strong showing. "That shows how good a job he has done", Guardiola said.

The Belgium worldwide recently became a father and said he has had little time to watch football but added: "Before training and during training we will be talking about them".

As for Liverpool, the situation is much more pressing with Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet both struggling in the Premier League this season. The left back has been in fine form in Ligue 1 this year.

Pep Guardiola's side came out of a hard group which also had Barcelona and their reward was a round of 16 tie with the French Ligue 1 leaders Monaco, who knocked Tottenham out of this competition. City would have looked at that result and the ones against Tottenham this season and will know the dangers Monaco possess.
