Manchester City are dreaming of Champions League glory, says John Stones

But, here and the schoolchildren it is clear how great the difference in the class of Feyenoord and Manchester City, which practically does not leave a chance to win the home team.

But few behind the scenes at the City Football Academy were anxious.

Manchester City got their Champions League campaign on a winning note as the citizens got a convincing victory over Dutch side Feyenoord in Rotterdam.

They were also aided by poor defending by Feyenoord, back in the Champions League for the first since the 2002-03 season, with Stone's opener trickling in after defender Tonny Vilhena made a comically inept attempt to clear off the line. "It's a sportive decision", Guardiola said.

If it could be hard to spot during the 2016-17 campaign, as the two got used to their new demands and City struggled in the crucial spring months, it has been obvious so far this term.

While they are without the injured Nicolai Jorgensen, who was the league's top scorer with 21 last season, Guardiola struck a cautious note. "But the Premier League is more competitive than any other league and it's not easy to win everything".

"He can make absolutely everything".

Manchester City are dreaming of Champions League glory, says John Stones

The 26-year-old Danish global - last year's Eredivisie top scorer with 21 goals in 32 games - will not play in the City match, Feyenoord announced on Monday. "We are so proud and so happy he is with us".

De Bruyne took over the captaincy from the substituted Silva on Wednesday, another sign that his efforts are being fully recognised. "They are one of the top teams in the world". "But this season, since the beginning, in pre-season, not just in the States, and in Manchester, he is so stable".

But De Bruyne insists he gets more pleasure from setting-up goals than scoring them and he added: "I get more more joy from an assist sometimes, just in the way I feel".

Both teams are coming into this game in good form as Feyenoord have won all four of their league games this season and their opponents have been undefeated in their Premier League so far.

Bernardo shares so much with Silva and De Bruyne: their touch, vision and instinctive understanding of what Guardiola wants, and spoke afterwards about what a natural fit it was with his new team-mates. Xavi's. Perhaps the greatest midfielder to ever grace the competition.

"Getting an early goal always helps".
