WHO GETS YOUR VOTE? Watch four September strikes

WHO GETS YOUR VOTE? Watch four September strikes

But the broader question concerns how Pep Guardiola's men will bounce back from their shock 2-1 home defeat to Lyon in their Group F opener. In the last two seasons we qualified quite comfortably.

It is the first time Julian Nagelsmann will go head-to-head with Guardiola, who coached Bayern Munich to three consecutive Bundesliga titles from 2013 to 2016 before joining City.

"It will take them a while to get close to Liverpool and Manchester City".

United are unbeaten in their eight previous Champions League ties with Valencia (W2 D4) although this is the first game between the clubs in the competition since December 2010 when the game finished 1-1.

"I'd love to win a European trophy with City but it's such a tough competition to win".

"He is one of the best managers in the world", Zabaleta told BT Sport during their coverage of City's Champions League game against Hoffenheim.

They have also failed to score in seven of these games, but perhaps, more worryingly for City fans, they have never kept a clean sheet in any of their 21 Premier League visits to Liverpool.

Defending Premier League champions, City are now top of the division having won six and drawn one of their opening seven games.

"As I said, it's not easy to approach his style of play, but I have a few ideas".

Pep Guardiola confirmed after City's Champions League win last night that Gundogan is a doubt to face Liverpool, saying: "Gundogan has a problem with his muscle, I don't know his injury".

Whatever formation they select, City can be expected to win when you match the two sides on paper.

Silva is highly likely to feature from the start against the Reds and supporters will hope he can continue to deliver the goods to help drive the team towards a crucial three points.

"We created some good moments going forward and doing that against a side like Man City is something we can build on".
