Shakhtar Donetsk vs Manchester City, Champions League: Predicted Lineups

  • Why Jose Mourinho cannot replace Paul Pogba against Manchester City

Defeat means City, which had already qualified as Group F victor, failed to become only the seventh club in Champions League history to win every game in the group stage.

"There will be better teams (who play City) than Huddersfield, Southampton and West Ham, yet all came close".

One West Ham player who did catch the eye at Eastlands was Republic of Ireland Under-21 worldwide Declan Rice.

After late victories against Huddersfield Town and Southampton, Silva scored with seven minutes on the clock for a City side who, in cantering to an eight-point lead, are showing all the hallmarks of champions-elect.

Tony Gale believes Manchester United will have to adopt the "Mourinho style" when they host fierce rivals Manchester City in this weekend's Super Sunday clash.

"We started well but lost our patience and couldn't find the players in position". That is a lot.

A win will see City break a Premier League record for most consecutive wins while at the same time shatter United's unbeaten record at home - which will stretch to 40 in all competitions if they avoid a loss to CSKA Moscow on Tuesday [5 December] night.




Fellow pundit Phil Neville also agreed that the 18-year-old stood out, with the former Manchester United star saying: "Today was a great learning experience for him". We are in a good moment.

The Brazilian, Pep Guardiola's second attempt to replace Joe Hart, has already kept ten clean sheets and impressed numerous club's supporters with his absolute confidence with the ball at his feet (perhaps best summed by one particularly memorable touch in the midweek win against Southampton last week).

West Ham manager David Moyes, on his part, said: "I have to say it was a really good effort. We were much, much better".

"Concentration levels are the most important thing". I thought most of it was outside the box.

"I hope they win it".

"It's a natural feel for the game but I think he's also been working on it". Our effort today was top. "The fans won't mind it, as long as he gets a result".
