Added to this is the somewhat freakish decision for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to be used only the Chelsea v Arsenal game and not over the two legs between Manchester City and Bristol City.

Success in the Champions League will undoubtedly be the hardest to achieve but Guardiola is determined that his side will challenge and with a favourable draw against Swiss side FC Basel, it's not inconceivable that they can make progress deep into the competition.

The Gunners crashed out of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon, a competition that Arsene Wenger's men have dominated in recent years winning three of the last four finals.

"I'm so happy", said Guardiola. Raheem Sterling is top scorer for Manchester City at the moment, the former Liverpool winger has found the net 14 times in his 20 league appearances so far this season.

Guardiola has rotated his squad for the League Cup, using a blend of youngsters and fringe players, and they have been taken to penalties in the last two rounds.

"David is a legend for the club and for what he has done", said Pep. He made the statement.

Manchester City have been nearly flawless in domestic competition this term.

Bristol City may be focusing all their efforts on the Carabao Cup (formerly the EFL Cup) since their league form has nose dived in recent weeks. Instead they showed the qualities that no English side has been able to find a way of overcoming and turned the game on its head.

Aguero fired home after 56 minutes with City's first shot on target after Gundogan found him with a quickly-taken free-kick, and then benefited from a backheel by the same player before rounding Nick Pope to score. We see them on the telly enough to know what players will be playing and what they're about. Kevin De Bruyne is likely to play some part having started on the bench against Burnley and Yaya Toure may also feature.

"I have to say it's an honour for me to have Sergio under my command", said Pep.

The Carabao Cup (League Cup to the rest of us) has already been one of the more weird elements to the 2017/18 season, with draws taking place a ungodly times of the morning in the far east or in some cases not at all.

"I think the more games we have, the more opportunities there are to change players", the former Borussia Dortmund man added.
