  7:30PM How has Guardiola made them so good?! I wrote this earlier in the week about all the tactical loveliness that Guardiola has brought into this team this year. The genius of Pep Guardiola: Eight things he has done to make Man City so frighteningly good   7:20PM Guardiola says "After three month injured to play, he could play, but it's better we let him rest for the future.  "We'll see, we are here to win the game, we decide to do it with this 11 players but all the players on the bench must be there to help us. "They switch a lot of times with the third man, the striker, they play faster so I think they'll attack our back four, they have good talent one against one.  "The first job is to qualify, the second is to finish first. You never know, the draw what might happen. It's better to play the second leg at home, with our friends in our stadium. The target, we have two chances to get that but we will try to achieve that today and to do that we have to play good." 7:16PM Man City's futuristic dressing room Credit: UEFA   7:06PM Van Gaal at the Etihad Credit: REUTERS Heavily linked with the Everton job, Mr Van Gaal has returned to Manchester to take in Man City, and has been hanging out with his former player, Guardiola. 7:02PM Debuts for youngsters? Diaz and Foden are on the bench tonight then which means both could well make their Champions League debut. Fernandinho gets a well deserved rest and Yaya Toure will have the chance to stretch his legs, while Ilkay Gundogan also gets to start. I'd imagine that De Bruyne will come off on about 60mins unless City are already 2 or 3 up at half time, which looking at this Feyenoord team on current form, isn't beyond the realms of possibility. 6:50PM Starting lineups Man City City XI | Ederson, Walker, Mangala, Otamendi, Danilo, Gundogan, Yaya Toure, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero (C) Subs | Bravo, Foden, Delph, Silva, Fernandinho, Diaz, G Jesus#cityvfey#mancitypic.twitter.com/XYb7gg1pfD— Manchester City (@ManCity) November 21, 2017 Feyenoord LINE-UP FEYENOORD ��⚪️⚫️#mcifey#UCLpic.twitter.com/qevtst4WO5— Feyenoord Rotterdam (@Feyenoord) November 21, 2017   6:48PM Preview Manchester City host Feyenoord in the penultimate match of their Champions League group stages, with Pep Guardiola's side already guaranteed a place in the knock-out stages, having qualified with two games to spare.

John Stones' injury could force him to miss the next six weeks of action and with the fragile Vincent Kompany likely to be rested to avoid causing another troublesome calf injury, that leaves Eliaquim Mangala to partner one of Nicolas Otamendi or young Tosin Adarabioyo in defence.  City need to win to ensure that they finish in first place and have a positive seven goal difference over Shakhtar Donetsk in second.

Thibaut Courtois gives Chelsea no comfort about extending his contract

Thibaut Courtois has said there have been no further developments in his contract negotiations with Chelsea as he continues to stall on signing a new deal amid longstanding interest from Real Madrid. Courtois may now enter the final year of his contract without committing his future to the club and he suggests that talks will not resume until the end of the season. Chelsea have previously warned Real Madrid off making an approach for the Belgium goalkeeper by demanding a transfer fee of more than £70m. But their inability to tie him down to an extended deal will provide encouragement to the European champions, who will hope the 25-year-old could be tempted by a return to the Spanish capital, where he previously played for Atlético. Speaking in the build-up to Chelsea’s Champions League meeting with Qarabag in Baku, Courtois said: “The most important thing is to perform well for myself and the team. “Regarding my contract, that’s the thing where Chelsea must deal with my agent. I don’t think there have been any new developments. “We have so many games at the moment, and I prefer to focus on the team’s games, my own performances, and there will be time enough towards the end of the season to have talks.” Antonio Conte is incensed by the scheduling of Saturday's match against Liverpool Credit: Resul Rehimov/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images Victory over Qarabag, who Chelsea thrashed 6-0 at Stamford Bridge in September, would guarantee a place in the knockout stages for Antonio Conte’s side and remove the pressure from their final group game, at home against Atlético. But the build-up here has instead been dominated by Conte’s fury over fixture scheduling that means his side will have to play Liverpool on Saturday, less than three days after this 2,470 mile trip to Azerbaijan. Conte complained about Chelsea’s “abnormal” fixture list after Saturday’s 4-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion, and has now gone further by asking for more “respect” to be shown to his side. Modern heroes: Who has done most for your club in the last 20 years? “Liverpool are playing tonight and we have to play tomorrow against Qarabag, a long trip,” Conte said. “It will be very difficult for us to recover, to rest. Whoever prepared the fixtures for the league must pay great attention. Otherwise it is very difficult when you ask me if my team are ready to catch Manchester City if they put us in this type of situation. “I don’t like to find excuses, but this is the reality. Sometimes I think it’s right to give respect for our job.” Chelsea faced a similar situation earlier this season when they lost to a Manchester City side that had one more day to recover from European fixtures. “This isn’t the first time,” Conte said. “If we’d won the game [against City] it [the gap between the teams] was only three points. If we’d drawn, it was six points. Now it’s nine points. Now another big game against Liverpool.” An English team has not reached the Champions League final since 2012, when Chelsea won the competition, and Conte added that the fixture scheduling plays its part in the European struggles of Premier League sides. “England needs to try to understand this and change something,” he said.
