Shakhtar Donetsk 0 Manchester City 3: Silva sparkle to dominant display

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hailed his team's performance in the first 45 minutes of their 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League as the best football they have played during his reign at the club. "I met him at Watford when we played there last season and it was a huge pleasure", Guardiola said.

"When the attack happened, I was at home with my son, and my wife and daughters were there at the arena", he explained.

"Titles are important, of course, and they have helped me have jobs and to keep working on my passion".

"She [his wife Cristina] called me, but the line broke immediately".

"Mateo fought for his life for months and we told [Silva] that whenever he needed to go back to Spain and stay there, there would be no problem", he said.

As well as admitting it will be impossible to train another team like Manchester City in England because "I feel love from the people there", Guardiola also gave his thoughts about the wider issues in society, including the refugee crisis.

"I like to do it better, to seduce them, to make a better club so they can believe we are strong enough to do better things, but all human beings want to be supported in the bad moments". Everyone loves to be loved, it is the secret of our lives.

De Bruyne made his first start of the season against Shakhtar after suffering a lateral collateral knee ligament injury in training and City's 2017-18 Player of the Year has not been surprised to see his team-mates thrive in his absence.

Kevin De Bruyne is concerned over the potential state of the Wembley pitch when Manchester City take on Tottenham on Monday.

The Spaniard said: "When this kind of thing happens it shows the best of us".

"I will be Mancunian for rest of my life".

"I feel the love from the people here".

"We were under a lot of pressure after the defeat by Lyon but now we are in a good position".

"We tried to call her again but it didn't work, and after we went to the the arena and after five or six minutes she rang again and said 'we are out, we're coming back home". "And to be a fighter with more than 50 years on the stage you have to be so good".

Shakhtar meanwhile has drawn their opening two games and sit in third place with two points after two games.
