He's been poor since that Poland game for England, maybe time for Laporte to get a run in the team anyway. 

Clear red card don't know what Pep was complaining about, especially after a Leeds player was sent off for a similarly high challenge a few weeks ago against City

Big win. Foden is some player, ran the game

I don’t think it was a sending off..definitely a yellow.think pep was saying it was the side of stones foot that caught him and a sending off would be more open foot/studs in.

Played well,never had to get out of second gear...foden unreal and even rodri played well.

Two questions with the team tonight will be Stones or Laporte at centre half, and Zinchenko or Cancelo at left back. 
He'll not play a back four of all right footers so I'd say it'll be Stones and Zinchenko

Stones has been poor recently, could see him making another mistake if he starts

After Stones making those recent clangers, Pep will defo start him. He loves defying conventional wisdom and taking the more maverick option. It's prob why I sort of fancy him in as much as a heterosexual man can fancy another fella.

That’s City strongest team IMO.

Some bench too - Laporte, Sterling, Aguero, Fernandinho, Jesus

Mbappe does start.

I think city win tonight by a single goal. Maybe 2-1

Agree on those 3 players. Thought de Bruyne was poor, lost the ball a lot.

This
City and PSG put in a shift last night.

PSG have a must win game on sat against Lens.
City can rest everybody and be fresh for next Tuesday.

They will never get a better chance than this.

It’s the same for the final, pep can rest his players as the league is won whereas Real are fighting for the league and Chelsea have top 4 and FA cup final in between.

That match really lived up to the old cliche of a game of two halves. City were much improved after the break but they really did get lucky. That's something that hasnt been with them in recent CL campaigns. I think the 2nd leg will be a cracker. PSG will likely come out all guns blazing and it's unlikely that City will sit in and just look to counter them.

Their second half performance was such that I got the feeling they were always going to score no matter how it came. PSG imploded a bit in the second half with their front 2 starved of possession and not running as much. Their full backs were turned inside out in the second half after looking strong first half

It shocked me a bit when the commentator mentioned that Mbappe is 22 and Dias is 23. 
For a defender that is incredibly young to be at that level. He is superb.
