David Silva stunner restores Manchester City's lead

David Silva stunner restores Manchester City's lead

PEP GUARDIOLA reckons his Manchester City side are learning to win in "Fergie time" ahead of Sunday's derby at Old Trafford.

If the Italians beat Feyenoord and Shakhtar lose, Napoli would progress to the next stage as they have a better head-to-head record. "They wouldn't come out for the game, they came for the counterattack only".

John Stones and Benjamin Mendy are both injured but youngsters Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz, Tosin Adarabioyo and goalkeeper Danny Grimshaw have been included.

Shakhtar are without Brazilian winger Taison who is out with a thigh problem, along with Sergiy Kryvtson and Bogdan Butko.

Silva, who scored the pivotal victor against West Ham United on Sunday, was left out of the City squad that travelled to Kharkiv for their final Champions League group game against Shakhtar Donetsk.

"Eventually Manchester City will force you back". They have made it past the round of 16 only once, it was in 2015/16 when they reached the semi-finals (knocked out by Real Madrid).

"He was in a back three".




Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca is preparing for one of his toughest challenges as Manchester City visit in the Champions League.

The Belgian curled in a smart cross for Silva, whose run had not been tracked by the Hammers defence, and despite the ball coming in at an awkward angle, the diminutive Spaniard jumped in the air and volleyed past to score his second league goal of the season.

Raheem Sterling has scored four goals in five Champions League appearances this season, already his most prolific campaign to date.

United were notorious for their last-gasp triumphs during Sir Alex Ferguson's reign. He's won 61, drawn 23 and lost 15 of his previous 99 games, lifting the trophy on two occasions with Barcelona (2009, 2011).

On the game against Shakhtar being his 100th Champions League game, the former Bayern Munich head coach said:"It's a nice number, it's a lot of games in a marvellous competition".

Boss Guardiola smiled: "I heard about Fergie time". I think he'll be watching not only our players but City's as well.
