Pep Guardiola warns 'amazing' Manchester City they have to score in Monaco

Pep Guardiola warns 'amazing' Manchester City they have to score in Monaco

Caballero believes City are in a good position ahead of the second leg against Monaco on March 15 but says they need to tighten up defensively if they are to progress to the quarterfinals.

Radamel Falcao admits that AS Monaco "lacked a bit of intelligence" in the second half of Tuesday's Champions League last-16 first leg away to Manchester City.

"Definitely it's open", Toure said of the Champions League.

'With the new manager now it's all about attack. "We played really well and I've congratulated the players". If you don't take risks the football is not going to follow. If one team can score a thousand million goals, it's Monaco.

"The tie is not finished yet".

Sane should have done better when he was fed the ball by David Silva after a neat passing move forward but the young winger only succeeded in blasting his effort high and wide. Sane and Sterling also scored. "But in other respects we can not compare the teams, such as in their respective transfer market weight". "We were fighting, running everywhere". "It makes the team much better", Toure continued. It was a weak goal for the visitors to concede, goalkeeper Subasic allowing the South American's speculative drive from the edge of the box to slip through his fingers.

City have kept four clean sheets in their past five matches but Guardiola knows Falcao and his partners-in-crime Thomas Lemar, Bernardo Silva, Valere Germain and teenage protege Kylian Mbappe are likely to throw the defensive vulnerabilities that have plagued his side this season back under the microscope. "And the skills of their offensive players make it work and explains why they score so many goals".

City boss Pep Guardiola, who has reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in each of the last seven seasons as a manager and has won it in 2009 and 2011, faces a stern test against the Ligue 1 leaders.

"They have a magnificent youth academy and they have guys working very well with the kids".

Monaco's goals exposed serious failings in the City rearguard, but although Guardiola acknowledged his side must tighten up at the back, he said they would go to Stade Louis II intending to attack. Full credit to them. "But we've got 90 minutes to go, playing at home, so it's far from over".

I interviewed Yaya Toure for BT Sport ahead of Manchester City's game against Monaco tonight and he gave me great insight on what it's like to play for Pep Guardiola.

"We have changed a lot of players over the last three seasons and we are here in the last-16 again", he added.
