City forgot to attack - Guardiola bemoans Basel loss

In that occurrence, should City triumph at Stoke on Monday, they will have the opportunity to win the league on March 31 at Goodison Park by claiming three points.

Manchester City lost 2-1 to Basel for its first home defeat in 15 months but still advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Manchester City, flying high and variously described as being the "best team in Premier League history", falling once again to weaker opponents in Champions League dead rubber fixtures.

Lineups will be posted when announced.

"How we control the game, how we create". Finally, be nice to each other. "We play simple. It's a good moment to see how we can handle the situation for our future", He said on Tuesday. We have more potential to achieve.

The evening began positively for City, unbeaten in their last 12 Champions League home matches, when Brazilian Gabriel Jesus put them ahead in the eighth minute.

Glenn has since apologised and Guardiola said: "My first impression when I heard that was he didn't understand exactly what the yellow ribbon means".

Manchester City are going to win the Premier League this season, that has been very clear for a while now, the only question remaining is, when will they do it?

"It's not good for us comparing with that team because that team dominate the last decade with different managers and different players".

Tottenham are a team with enormous potential, but if they don't learn from their defeat to Juventus, they may never actually reach it.

"It doesn't matter how the first leg was, even with that result", said Gundogan.

Luckily for Guardiola's charges, they still advance to the next round, having won the tie 5-2 on aggregate. We are not getting a very good price betting on the home side to win and due to that reason, we should avoid this bet. "If we are able to play in the way we normally do then we will be close to winning". Aymeric Laporte started against Chelsea because, the Catalan says, the Londoners could have used two systems, ones which required a versatile, left-footed defender to combat them. "We feel we have respect for the brand of football we show, they respect us in Europe we feel".
