Champions League the ultimate for Manchester City, says the Sunday Supplement panel

Champions League the ultimate for Manchester City, says the Sunday Supplement panel

In one week we lost three games, that happened.

But Guardiola believes the 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge was a pivotal moment when Kevin De Bruyne's goal saw them pick up a deserved three points after dominating against the defending champions.

'But in general we were so, so stable (this season). "We conceded goals but the most important detail is not the goal you concede but the chances you concede and in every game it was few and [while] playing so offensively". "Previously we've almost thrown it away and come back with character".

UEFA, on its part, will not be fast-tracking VAR for Champions League or Europa League next season.

Under Roberto Mancini in 2012 they clinched it with a last-gasp Sergio Aguero victor at Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the season while in 2014 under Manuel Pellegrini it also went down to the wire.

The home side has also been strong on home soil in the top-flight, recording four consecutive victories at Wembley in the league, while keeping clean sheets in all four wins.

Just two sides in the league have been able to beat City this season, and Guardiola now has his sights set on successfully defending the title.

Captain Vincent Kompany, meanwhile, wants City's title triumph to be the first of many as he targets total domination under Guardiola. We handled pressure all season.

Reacting to his omission, Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk stated, via to the Mirror: "Pep likes to work with young players, but to win in the Champions League you need experience".

Lloris palmed Jesus's shot to Sterling and the winger drilled into the roof of the net to leave City fans singing "we're going to win the league". "But do not tell City they won title because United did not win, it is not fair on them". That is important to build up the club.

Manchester United struggled to cut through Albion's compact defence and when they did found an equal in former goalkeeper Ben Foster, who blocked from Romelu Lukaku at point-blank range and kept out Alexis Sanchez's follow-up with his legs.

"But it feels just as good because you can't take it for granted".

"The way we played helped us reach our target". That is the target.

Instead, he'll be out on the golf course... as you do.

'But that is the target.

Most of their goals this season have come with a flourish, but for once City took a more direct approach.

However, this time there was no second-half collapse as City should have ran out even more convincing winners. That will be good'.
