Champions League: Aguero strikes in comeback win for City

Champions League: Aguero strikes in comeback win for City

"It is attractive to me". "Maybe not the most important, but the most attractive".

While City don't lack firepower by any stretch of the imagination as young players such as Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling are in impressive form, their achilles heel is inarguably their defence.

"As a spectator, it is so nice to see them", Guardiola said of Monaco.

Pep Guardiola says Manchester City will be harshly criticsed for a loss to Monaco on Tuesday. The two strikers are fighters - [Radamel] Falcao and [Valere] Germain, they are killers in the box.

City were enjoying some success in the final third but they were not creating any opportunities on goal and when they lost possession, the visitors were surging forward in numbers.

"Compliments, because they are a really good team".

However, City's lead was short-lived as six minutes later, Radamel Falcao got Monaco back on level terms with a header at the back post after Willy Caballero had sliced a clearance straight to a Monaco player. During his time with Porto and Atletico Madrid, he scored 93 goals in 117 games.

"Sergio has enough experience", Guardiola said.

Jets cornerback Revis turns self in following fight claims
Police said the video "shows Revis walking away from the group and Cousins following him, describing what Revis is wearing". Before this alleged incident, there was speculation that the Jets might cut Revis in a move to save salary cap space.

Jets' Revis Turns Himself In to Pittsburgh Police
Darrelle Revis is no longer a wanted man. "There are two sides to the quarter", Revis' attorney, Blaine Jones , said Thursday. Nathan Watt, a witness, told police that after the two men were knocked down, Revis said to him, " I got more guys coming ".

ICE agents arrest alleged domestic abuse victim in court
Federal immigration officials reportedly arrested an illegal immigrant in Texas who was seeking help for domestic violence. He said a domestic violence victim's legal status should not matter when they're reporting a crime or offering testimony.

With neither at full strength at the back and both so capable in the final third, I'm going for a high-scoring draw which would suit Monaco to the ground. Neither side were convincing in trying to keep matters tight hence the reason eight goals found their way into the back of the net.

Bakayoko kept Kevin De Bruyne quiet and launched attacks from a deep-lying position. But on a night when the sheer bravado, exuberance and fearlessness of youth was a joy to behold, Sane's contribution was central to City eventually emerging on top at the end of one of the great Champions League nights. "You have to live the situation like we are lucky guys".

City XI: Caballero, Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi, Sagna, De Bruyne, Toure, Silva, Sane, Sterling, Aguero.

- Sergio Aguero's first goal was Manchester City's 200th European goal (203 at the end of this game).

Trips to England have held little fear for the French side with a track record littered with the bruised reputations of beaten Premier League teams.

Jardim, who has guided the principality side to the top of Ligue 1, was recently mentioned as a potential candidate to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. "He is an important player for the club and also for the team".

"It's not topical, I don't think about it at the moment". Monaco will be hoping to get at least a draw here so they will be at the upper hand when going home.

"I have a contract until 2021, but the Premier League is a league that interests me and maybe one day I will come and play here". And if City don't win comprehensively at Etihad, Monaco have all the artillery to rip them into shreds in the second-leg in France.
