Champions League Preview: Manchester City Need A Good Start Against Feyenoord

Redknapp names the player who would be an automatic pick in EVERY Premier League team

Redknapp names the player who would be an automatic pick in EVERY Premier League team

Pep Guardiola admits he does not know if Manchester City can win the Champions League as his side are still in the "process of growing".

There is no suggestion Toure is injured, but speculation is mounting that Guardiola is less than impressed with his attitude and application on the training ground.

The City boss added that the full reason would be kept between himself and the player.

Manchester City, while not having the worst group by any stretch of the imagination, will need a good start.

Guardiola said: "The decision was he didn't play the last game and today he was not in the squad".

Guardiola said: 'Yaya was so important last season.

Bernardo Silva acknowledges Manchester City will need a slice of luck if they are to compete for the Champions League title this season. Here, we take a possible look at the defenders who can replace the Belgian. "Guardiola consistently talks about how much time City need before being able to challenge".

Their last appearance in the Champions League group stage in 2002/03 saw them finish bottom of a group containing Juventus, Newcastle United and Dynamo Kiev. In fact, the amount of goals scored in last season's run will be cause for concern for Guardiola.

The midfielder fought his way back into Guardiola's plans by working hard in training and was eventually handed a one-year contract extension in May in recognition of his efforts throughout the season. Strike partnerships may have gone out of fashion to a degree but the potency of these two could change that, at City at least. But the Citizens played a second-string against Celtic and the remaining five fixtures came against Monaco, Gladbach, Barcelona, Real Madrid and PSG.

In those two matches everything went wrong, with City well beaten 3-1 in Amsterdam after leading through Samir Nasri's opener and pegged back to 2-2 at the Etihad, thus putting an early lid on their ambitions for another season.

Listen to our podcast ahead of the tie tomorrow as the Football-Oranje team give their predictions on the game, while we also welcome a special guest from Manchester.

"I know from my experience it is".

I spoke with him and he knows the reason why, but its between him and me.

The Brazilian, who suffered facial injuries in a nasty clash with Liverpool's Sadio Mane last Saturday, wore a skull cap and City will assess his fitness ahead of tomorrow morning's match.

Asked whether Toure would play soon, Guardiola said: "Hopefully - it depends on the player".

"That shows his character.

We are Manchester City, we have to win our respect in Europe, and every game in this competition is a chance to do that".
