Michael Owen states his prediction for Man City v Lyon

City had only been in existence for 22 years, World War One was still two years from its conclusion and King George V was on the British throne when lifelong fan Vera Cohen was born.

Sane has struggled for minutes so far this season partly because Benjamin Mendy has become a key part of the team on the left, meaning the winger in front of him has to cut inside - and that's not Sane's strong point. "I'm pretty sure they'll have a good season".

Manchester City looked close to their sparkling best as they comfortably beat promoted Fulham 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday to stay within two points of early leaders Liverpool and Chelsea. "It depends how I feel physically and mentally", Silva said in an interview for the Premier League Show.

Do you think Silva has been one of the best players in England over the past decade?

"He had a top impact last season, because he played three minutes from the bench and when he plays three minutes from the bench, he played the best he can play", Guardiola said. A fighter is also a runner, with Silva often covering the most distance, 12 or 13km, in a game. If they miss that - and there was many of that - that's why [in training] I am going to show them we can improve'. You have to adapt to your teammates, to the league, the referees, and obviously, I have a lot more confidence. "I hope I can continue this way".


The Citizens have made an unbeaten start to the Premier League season following four victories and one stalemate.

"It is nearly impossible to be more pleased as a manager with him", Guardiola praised. Starting all the way from Ederson, the ball eventually found its way to Bernardo Silva whose deflected cross fell kindly for his namesake David - his right-footed shot bringing up his 50th goal for the club. I don't forget the behaviour he had last season, he played a lot but not at the start, I don't forget his behaviour with his team-mates - never.

Unai Emery's men scored the first goal in the 11th minute of play through Shkodran Mustafi who was superbly set up by Granit Xhaka.

"Sometimes there are players - and all the managers know - that you give five minutes and they say; "now I have to play five minutes", like you have to tell them to play - he is not that case".
