Guardiola frustrated by Man City's "really poor" form in loss

Guardiola frustrated by Man City's

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola hailed Phil Foden as perhaps the only bright spot in their 2-1 home defeat by FC Basel in the Champions League last 16, second leg yesterday morning (Singapore time).

What happened then? Manchester City play the Guardiola system and are nearly the Premier League champions now. The loss still came as a surprise particularly after Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus put the home side ahead in the eighth minute on his first start in 2018.

To discuss the game and other matters, Pep Guardiola addressed the media at the CFA on Friday lunchtime.

"On any given day you can win a game of football". "When it's scary to be (knocked) out, the rhythm will be completely different". With big names still in the competition watching, it was shown that City too, can bleed.

Ford meeting with Elliott day after close convention result
The party will go ahead with its convention in Markham on Saturday where the victor will be chosen based on ranked ballots. For Elliott, 62, Saturday's result was yet another disappointment in her bid to lead the party.

Basel: Tomas Vaclik 6, Marek Suchy 6, Fabian Frei 6, Leo Lacroix 6, Michael Lang 6, Geoffrey Serey Die 6, Luca Zuffi 6, Blas Riveros 7, Kevin Bua 6, Mohamed Elyounoussi 8, Dimitri Oberlin 6. "We play them in two or three weeks so I intend to take a look", the manager said, "But it is a big derby, an English classic, the history of both teams is wonderful".

"We are very happy to be in the quarter-finals again because that gives prestige", Guardiola said. Tottenham Hotspur were eliminated form the competition by a relentless Juventus side.

Guardiola will take the opportunity of a blank Saturday to watch Manchester United v Liverpool, partly because United are among City's next opponents.

"The first half was quite good but, in the second half, we forgot to attack, to play", he said.

The batsmen have not been able to rotate the strike enough in the middle overs, stopping them from putting up competitive scores. Earlier, India's young bowling unit got its bearings back with a disciplined effort to restrict Bangladesh to a modest 139/8.

City broke a new record for most passes completed by a team in this year's edition of the Champions League. Just to pass to pass for itself is nothing. "In the second half it was really, really poor". Jesus hadn't started since suffering knee ligament damage on New Years' Eve, but had the simplest of tasks to get back among the goals when Bernardo Silva latched onto Sane's pass to produce a inch-perfect low cross for the Brazilian.

Stoke had the division's joint-highest goals against tally at the end of the last round of games, 54 conceded in 29 matches (the same as West Ham).

Basel's victor came when Elyounoussi slipped the ball through for Lang to fire home from an acute angle. However, having won the first leg 4-0, City still made it through to the quarter-finals. "The best example is two days ago, we lost against Basel", said Guardiola.
