    Ridiculous just playing the same faces over and over again, and Pep always moans about burnout of the players. I guarantee only Foden will start out of the young players.

    Gundogan on winning the Champions League: “I hope so, to win domestic titles doesn’t guarantee the Champions League, it’s a new and different competition compared to the Premier League, it’s so tough, the knockout stages get tougher and tougher."

    Gundogan on staying motivated: “First of all, it’s good to be through as soon as possible, it’s a great feeling to be in the knockout stages. We have a responsibility to ourselves to play a good game, there’s so much talent in our squad that anything else would be

    Gundogan on City's form: “I think it’s nothing unusual, after having two great seasons it’s even tougher to perform for a third one in a row but it’s also a challenge, a challenge to play the same successful kind of football every single season."

    “It’s normal we go through this kind of period. We have to stick together to come back to what we did in the past. The sooner we reach our best levels the sooner we can be successful again."

    Gundogan on confidence around the squad: “There’s a bit of a lack of confidence when you lose games, when you recognise you didn’t play as well as you could... But we’re strong, especially mentality, we should be able to do our best in every single game."

    Pep Guardiola has confirmed Sergio Aguero, David Silva and John Stones are all unavailable with injuries.

    "David had a huge kick in a dangerous part of his leg and he’s not risked... John is injured, Sergio is much better but he’s still not ready.”

    Guardiola on his possible team selection: “We have many injuries, we have young players here, all the squad are here and we’re going to put the best squad for the circumstances. We’re already qualified and the league is more important than the Champions League now.”

    Uefa have appointed one of Pep's best friends from Madrid to arbitrate! S'only fair, 'cos Salzburg have to put up a bunch of Virgil's mates from the Netherlands.

    Would like to see a mixture of young and experienced players. We need to take every opportunity to play the young players.

    Watching the Salzburg and Liverpool game we really need an infusion of youth in our team. These sides are playing with a physicality we can not match.

    I was hoping to see more youngsters.

    KDB must be rested.

    We've topped the group already, can see us going for a strong line up. Sterling and KDB shouldn't be there

    Mad moment from the Sal keeper - gifting it to Liverpool tonight - talk about luck

    Me too, this is one game where the outcome is irrelevant. It's is a tie where Foden can have the full 90 and Pep can see how near he can get to dictating a game,
