Guardiola exposed by Monaco

Guardiola exposed by Monaco

The result actually meant that, for the first time, Guardiola has failed to take a side to at least the semi-finals. Their defence is nearly non-existent at times and that is just the sort of team that we can thrive against. "We have to recover because it was quite a hard game and then we have to think about Liverpool", Sagna added. We've won seven and drawn two of our last nine games, keeping seven clean sheets in the process.

What do you expect, Jurgen, small teams to play it out from the back, make it easy for you and thank you for the footballing lesson at the end?! That's an terrible lot of English Champions League campaigns laid waste. Right now Arsenal have a Premier League trip to West Brom and the ongoing fight for a top four finish to consider. We weren't there. We wanted to show personality, not to let them think, but they could pass and pass the ball.

"Our job is to do as we well can".

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim warned rivals that one of the most exciting Ligue 1 teams in years will fear no one when the Champions League quarter-finals draw is made today.

All three goals City conceded raised questions of City's defence, which contained only one specialist centre back in John Stones while, in front of them, only Fernandinho offered protection as the rest of the side was loaded with attackers.




Atletico, last season's beaten finalists at the hands of fierce local rival Real Madrid, ran out 4-2 winners over Leverkusen in Germany, also giving them a two-goal advantage but with the potentially crucial benefit of multiple away goals when the Bundesliga team visit the Vicente Calderon.

A fiercely-contested clash was tilted Chelsea's way by N'Golo Kante's fine victor, while Blues boss Antonio Conte and United manager Jose Mourinho nearly came to blows on the touchline. I believe it's one defeat in 23 games.

City did indeed improve after the break, playing with a goal that was lacking earlier. "He's a good finisher as well", Cahill said.

It's the first time in Guardiola's career that he has been knocked out of the competition at this stage.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will be without England striker Kane for several weeks after their leading scorer suffered an ankle injury in last weekend's FA Cup win against Millwall. And Monaco's record against English teams in knockout European competition is superlative. "As you saw from Barcelona against PSG, anything is possible in football", Kane said of Tottenham's title chances. It came against the backdrop of failing miserably to match last season's Premier League success and the sacking of manager Claudio Ranieri, the architect of that miracle.
