Pep: De Bruyne among the best I've seen

Pep: De Bruyne among the best I've seen

And now in Bernardo City have a third man to capable of doing this, not just to stand in for the original two but to accompany them.

"The only difference at Barcelona and Bayern Munich is that the players played the Champions League many more times before than the players at Manchester City right now. It's a sportive decision", Guardiola said.

That issue was eventually resolved and Toure went on to regain a place and play an influential role in the second half of the season.

If De Bruyne is not the best midfielder in England already, he is well on the way.

"Obviously that is a big honor, when somebody talks about you - especially your own coach who trained a lot of unbelievable players", De Bruyne said.

Kessler started in April and the No. 1 QB before being replaced by Brock Osweiler after 9 training camp practices. Pittsburgh is a Super Bowl contending team, and Cleveland is still fighting to get out of the bottom 10 .

So much so, in fact, that Karim El Ahmadi, who before the game said they weren't scared of the Cityzens, admitted it felt like they had extra men on the pitch. 'The titles and the way they play, the self-confidence, shows that. He is in the form of his life, running games, showing the mixture of vision and athleticism which prompted City to spend £55m on him in 2015. "Kevin resembles Cruyff, who is really seeing everything". Against Feyenoord on Wednesday, Silva won the corner which led to the first goal by bursting forward himself, De Bruyne-esque. "Intelligent players can play different roles, and that is what he does perfectly". We played well offensively and defensively in terms of character.

"For me it's a pleasure to play like this because the level of all the players is so high".

They were also aided by poor defending by Feyenoord, back in the Champions League for the first since the 2002-03 season, with Stone's opener trickling in after defender Tonny Vilhena made a comically inept attempt to clear off the line. Those were also certainly happier times for Ajax boss Frank de Boer, enjoying the kind of stage and backing palpably lacking at the more prosaic surroundings of Crystal Palace this autumn.

Manchester City [1.43] have failed to record a victory in their last six away days at Europe's top table (W0-D3-L3), conceding 14 goals in the process. "As long as we win - I don't care".

In the 5-0 win against Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday, Ederson sustained a serious face injury, but the goalkeeper's recovery has been so quick that he is in the match-day squad.
