Pep Guardiola and Lionel Messi enjoyed a trophy-laded time together

England defender John Stones didn't have things go exactly according to plan after joining Manchester City from Everton last summer.

Spurs' only win in the competition came against Paris St-Germain, with Saturday's defeat adding to a loss against Roma. We have a lot of midfield players.

Mauricio Pochettino's team were somewhat fortunate to escape with a three-goal deficit as Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus missed easy chances to increase the scoreline throughout.

Diaz fired home the third goal for Manchester City in the first minute of stoppage time. You never hear one bad word about the players.

Furthermore, his ability to send goal-kicks into the opposition penalty area also caught the eye of former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola. "When the opposition makes high pressing and it's complicated, now we have the chance to put the ball in the other box, and of course we have a little bit more space in the middle".

Israel, Jordan deal with diplomatic crisis after embassy attack
The guard then shot the Jordanian worker and the Jordanian landlord standing next to him, the public security directorate said. Jordan has called for the removal of the metal detectors and thousands of Jordanians have protested against the Israeli move.

Guardiola has signed six players already this summer and further changes to his squad are expected before the 31 August transfer deadline.

But it remains likely that they will continue their haul after being strongly linked with moves for Arsenal frontman Alexis Sanchez and Monaco teenage striker Mbappe. "He has his own special quality".

Iheanacho is on the verge of joining Leicester City after dropping down the pecking order in Guardiola's Manchester City attack. And given the fact that players can not be ruled offside on a goal kick, Ederson offers a viable outlet of attack.

"I'm a big enough lad now to know that I should just get over it and do what I have to do, by getting out on the training pitch and correcting the faults", Stones said in an interview with ESPN FC.
