Sergio Aguero says Manchester City future to be decided by club

Guardiola 'not expecting' to see results at Man City until 2018, has already made decision about future

But he will be keenly aware that if City do get through the second leg next month, there are some very serious players lying in wait.

In the end, they were just swept along by it like everyone else. The reality is that City were lucky to get away with conceding just the three away goals.

If that game is half as good as this one then we are in for another treat.

The game was a reflection of the attacking philosophies that both Guardiola and Jardim preach.

Basically, City have to stick with an attacking approach because, if they go there and try to shut up shop, they will lose.

"We saw Monaco (tonight) so we're going to have to score goals there".

"It is one of the most handsome competitions to play". Complete team. It is the most successful team in Europe in terms of scoring goals, so tough draw.

In a separate twitter message Thursday , Trump noted the stock market hitting new high with longest winning streak in decades. Flynn also reportedly was able to remember his discussions and told the White House counsel's office about the details.

It's not in his nature, either.

"The key moment of the match was when we failed to go 3-1 up", said Jardim of the error. We are not going to defend that result. The difference in the number of mistakes between the two teams is perhaps also linked to the age difference between the two teams. While all these teams can score goals, Atletico remain arguably the best at deploying the right personnel to stop them. Sane and Sterling also scored. From him they have an identity, a way of playing, which the players now understand and which is vital to European success. Monaco have more experience in Europe than us and we need this experience to improve. A man who usually has all the answers had a question of his own.

"The worry for Guardiola is, as Monaco have shown this season, that it doesn't matter how much individual players cost if they don't make the team better".

UEFA Champions League matches have majorly been synonymous with goals especially during the latter stages of the elite competition.

For the hosts, Sergio Aguero is set to lead the line for Pep Guardiola's men, having scored 18 goals in all competitions this season. "I am really impressed how good they are - physical, strong". "It was great for the fans inside the stadium and those watching on TV as I'm sure they were happy to watch such quality attacks and eight goals", the Portuguese said.

City put themselves on course for a place in the quarter-finals by twice coming from behind to beat the Ligue 1 leaders 5-3 in a sensational last-16 first-leg clash on Tuesday. Not if City defends like it did on Tuesday, with Nicolas Otamendi the main culprit.

If he were left out of such a big game it would surely signal the beginning of the end of his City career.
