He said: "I don't like to play on Monday because at the weekend everybody is involved and when the weekend is over, they are like "the weekend is over, there are no more games", but we have to play".

In the season following their treble, United ended the season a cool eighteen points ahead of nearest rivals Arsenal.

"As the City Football Group expand in the U.S., where they already own the New York City franchise in Major League Soccer, they will become one of the most sought-after sports groups with a transatlantic presence". "We have one or two training sessions until the game, we are going to decide on Sunday".

Foden - a lifelong City fan - was named player of the tournament in England's victorious Under-17 World Cup-winning campaign previous year.

With Gundogan in scintilating form, City have another captivating talent in their armoury and finally look "ready" to reach the upper echelons of European football.

It would take Basel putting four past a City side that have conceded just 20 in 29 league games this season to square the tie, and that's assuming the free-scoring Citizens don't manage to find the net themselves.
