Feyenoord v City — Talking points

City need 'a bit of luck' to challenge in Champions League - Bernardo Silva

City kick-off their European campaign at Feyenoord on Wednesday, having bowed out to Silva's Monaco in the first knockout round last term and reaching the semi-finals the year before.

Saturday's opening goal was Sergio Aguero's 124 in the Premier League and he is now the highest non-European goalscorer in the competition's history. That, in turn, led to a longer period of isolation from the side for the Ivorian.

"The official club statement on the colours of the new kit reads: "[featuring] a modern dazzle camo design, which combines deep greens with the Club's iconinc sky blue".

Guardiola coached Toure at Barcelona, where the former Ivory Coast international lost his place in the first XI and was transferred to City in 2010. Six players finished their contracts last season and Yaya is the only player who we decided could stay because he is a special player.

But it is understood there is consternation behind the scenes.

"But the decision is he didn't play the last game, and today he is not in the squad and he knows the reason why". Centre-halves Eric Bottteghin and Jan-Arie Van der Heijden aren't particularly mobile and could be left exposed if attacking full-backs Diks and Haps decide to venture too far forward. "We are Manchester City, we have to win our respect in Europe, and every game in this competition is a chance to do that". This would keep the defence sprightly and free up the left wingback position to be a straight shootout between Sane and Sterling. This is the Dutch side's first Champions League group stage performance in 15 years. He said City were still 'growing, ' despite a study which showed the total spend on this squad is £775m, £3m more than the amount spent by the Paris St-Germain side now parading £200m Neymar. For 32.5 million City grabbed his signature, with Chelsea feeling something they hadn't been used to.

Guardiola did stress he is happy with Toure, saying: "I'm always happy, but of course I demand as much as possible from everyone". 'That is the difference'. The Manchester City boss is expected to deal with his injury in a careful manner, considering his woes in the past. "We are taking care of him", Guardiola said.

Guardiola refused to reveal the problem he has with Toure, but insisted it was down to the player himself when it came to the issue of him getting back in the side.

It also saw him edge closer to Eric Brook's record of 177 City goals.

The Hard Tackle, therefore, predicts a hard-fought 2-1 win for Manchester City, kicking off their latest campaign in Europe by clinching the maximum points.
