Pep: De Bruyne among the best I've seen

Pep: De Bruyne among the best I've seen

Yaya Toure's controversial agent has commented on Pep Guardiola's decision to drop the African star for Manchester City's opening game against Feyenoord in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

"I think in one way it is maybe a way to keep me under pressure to try to play at a level that I'm trying to keep but it gives me good pleasure the way we are playing as a team and it makes me also better".

He also led City into a Champions League semifinal tie against Real Madrid in the 2015-16 campaign, with the Spanish giants winning that before lifting the trophy.

The game marked Jesus' debut in the Champions league for Manchester City.

It was this style of play that saw the former Everton global come close to besting Xavi's passing record in the Champions League at De Kuip in Rotterdam, on Wednesday night. It is only helping me, working with them day in, day out.

Feyenoord could savor its Champions League return for less than two minutes before Stones headed David Silva's cross innocuously toward goal and the ball somehow crept between the legs of Tonny Vilhena on the goal-line.

Boyfriend charged with murder after body of missing pregnant teacher found
Her boyfriend, Tyler Tessier , had stood with her parents Monday at a news conference and made a soulful plea for her safe return. Surveillance video showed the two together on Saturday, Sept. 2, at a grocery store near Wallen's home.

"They make the pitch big, that is a quality of them and it is hard for the other teams (to counter)". Of course, Feyenoord will play at home, given the long absence of participation in the Champions League, you can expect a full house and full support of native fans.

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. "But the only thing is the other players lived that situation many times in the past". It was the Argentine's 50th goal in European competition.

The young Brazilian has settled in well thus far until City's 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool. Vincent Kompany won't take any part in the game due to a calf strain.

City did not manage an away win last season in the Champions League, but never looked like losing in De Kuip as it spoiled Feyenoord's return to the competition for the first time since 2002.

He said: "Three points are very important to start the group stage". They are riding on a 12 matches unbeaten stretch dating back to last season and would love to add a win when they meet Feyenoord in Netherlands today.
