Manchester City thrash Basel 4-0, make history — Champions League

"It's just not possible to do them all with the same 11".

Gabriel Jesus has been out injured since the last day of 2017 with a knee ligament problem and is still around two weeks away from returning. Hull got to this stage of the tournament after beating Blackburn Rovers 1-0 at Ewood Park and Nottingham Forest 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium.

Just look across the scoring charts. Raheem Sterling has scored the most goals after 80 minutes.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are aiming to progress to the sixth round when they travel to Huddersfield Town on Saturday night.

City wasted no time in asserting their dominance on Tuesday, though, and were 3-0 ahead at half-time. The score was Aguero's 14th of the year.

"We are still in February".

In the 53rd minute, Aguero found a dashing Gündoğan with eyes on the net.

"We didn't have this in mind". He replaced ageing fullbacks with young ones. Basel has brought in $68 million. Now, his idea of 'Total Football' can be implicated without any hitch.

And Curtis says City have what it takes to reach this season's showpiece final.

Since then the Spanish, Italian and German giants have dominated proceedings.

And that paid off right from the start in a terrible opening 10 minutes for Spurs.

Let's break down the four competitions.

Yet few thought City would have the tie wrapped up after 90 minutes in which they scored four goals on the road.

It was not long before City established control, although they did survive a couple of early scares.

"In these kind of situations, in my opinion, it's about more than that", he added.

Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez - their fabled front three before Neymar upped sticks for Paris Saint-Germain - were the must-watch. The notoriously lively atmosphere was silenced, with the Basel supporters only able to sit back and admire as City opened up the home side with ease. Veterans like Pablo Zabaleta had been at the club for eight years.

"Their 4-0 win at Basel was equally as impressive. Then we will see, if we go to the quarter-finals, how we arrive in that moment".

Robertson has nailed down the spot of Liverpool's first-choice left-back, and with good reason.

"He was out for six or seven months last season and we missed him, he is an outstanding player who doesn't feel the pressure". They were so much better that they were scary.

And Merson believes the form of Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League leaders will have Europe's heavyweights running scared. The purpose of the Champions League is for Europe's best to compete at the pinnacle of club football. I'm backing the away win at 12/10.

Along with the England striker, Mousa Dembele is the linchpin to the Spurs play.

Rochdale promised to relay the turf after last weekend's game against Fleetwood was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

People can bemoan the injustice of it all and the consequences for teams throughout the Football League.
