Man City Predicted XI: Feyenoord (A)

  Man City Predicted XI: Feyenoord (A) Manchester City begin their 2017-18 Champions League campaign tomorrow night when they take on Dutch champions Feyenoord at De Kuip. The visitors will be looking to get off to winning ways after a disappointing exit to Monaco in the last 16 in February. Despite scoring the same amount of goals as their opponents, City were defeated by the away goals rule and crashed out of a competition that many were predicting they would get far in. This time round, Guardiola and his men will want to prove that they can compete with the best in Europe, starting with tomorrow’s match in Amsterdam. Feyenoord will not be an easy team to beat, considering they are Eredivisie champions and will face a raucous atmosphere from the home fans. A positive for City is that leading goalscorer Nicolai Jorgensen is ruled out with a hamstring injury, which will leave the home side short on goals. With Napoli facing Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, City will want to get off to a good start before they face the Italian side, who boast lethal finishing and world-class ability. This will be the first time that the Citizens play the Dutch side in a European competition. Feyenoord boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has recently stated in a press conference that their opponents can win the Champions League this season and states that they are one of the best teams in the world. Here’s how we expect Pep Guardiola to set out his team for the game.

Manchester City continued their fantastic form by claiming an important victory on matchday one in the Champions League. Traveling to De Kuip to face Giovanni van Bronckhorst's Feyenoord, the Citizens claimed a comfortable 4-0 win against the reigning Eredivisie champions.

Pep Guardiola's side got off to the perfect start after taking a fortuitous lead inside two minutes. A short corner gave David Silva space to float a ball into the box which was met by John Stones, directing the ball towards the far post.

Despite the best efforts from Tonny Vilhena, the Dutchman responsible for scoring Feyenoord's only goal when City's Manchester rivals lost at De Kuip last season, the ball trickled through his legs and into the back of the net - Manchester City registering their quickest European goal ever.

Ex-Aston Villa midfielder Karim El Ahmadi tried rallying De club aan de Maas after a nervous start, however, he couldn't stop Sergio Agüero doubling City's advantage before the 10-minute mark.

After a stunning passing move,  Agüero's clever movement allowed him to get on the end of a low Kyle Walker cross and the Argentine striker placed the ball past former Liverpool keeper Brad Jones.

Manchester City began to ease off and allowed Feyenoord to get a foothold in the game. Ex-Watford winger Steven Berghuis tested the battle-scarred Ederson with a tame effort before the Brazilian keeper showed quick reflexes to deny Michiel Kramer - the Dutch striker tasked with stepping in for the injured Nicolai Jørgensen.

Gabriel Jesus was able to put the game to bed in the 25th minute with the easiest goal he'll ever score in sky blue. After the ball pinballed around in the area, summer signing Benjamin Mendy saw his powerful effort parried away by Jones, the ball dropping to Jesus with an open goal and the exciting young striker calmly poked the ball home.

Having survived the remaining 20 minutes of the first half, Feyenoord introduced creative midfielder Jens Toornstra at half-time - the 29-year-old involved in 24 goals in the Eredivisie last season - but the Dutchman was unable to prevent City extending their lead.

John Stones notched his second goal of the game just after the hour mark in almost identical fashion to his first. 

Another short corner between David Silva and Kevin De Brunye opened up space for Stones in the penalty area and City's Belgian talisman picked out Stones perfectly, the England international powering the ball past Jones in the Feyenoord goal.

City saw out the game in comfortable fashion, barely breaking a sweat to deal with Feyenoord attacks and claiming an easy three points in their first Champions League game this season.

Jesus in line to receive new contract .
Gabriel Jesus is reportedly in line for a new contract at Manchester City, with discussions set to take place once the club have tied up new deals with Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva. According to the Telegraph, Silva is set for a new one-year deal while De Bruyne is going to be offered a deal which would see his £6 million-a-year wages doubled. City want to reward Jesus’ recent efforts with a new deal, which is set to see his reported £70,000 per week wages take a significant boost. Jesus joined City from Brazilian club Palmeiras for £27 million last summer, but, did not join the club until the start of the year. Scoring 12 goals in 15 starts, it looks like City have bagged a bargain. The Blues fended off competition from the likes of Real Madrid and the future of Jesus could well lie in Manchester as he looks settled at the club.
