Interesting snippet from BT

"Silva isn't just Man City's stylish playmaker, he's also covered 34.4km in the Champions League this season, making him the hardest-working player from any Premier League club."

P.S. Will Pep be urging us to cheer the UEFA anthem?

I don't think he has ever said that. I have just collected some tickets from my pal. He said a thing... City fans want 19 league games the rest including every cup competition are a hard sell and always have been. Even at a £20.00 we will have thousands who just do the league and have no interest in them even if they were free. City fans are not going to spend anymore unless its a final of the cup.

This will be much tougher than the first leg. Their best two players were missing as was their left back. No KDB either. They play good football so I can see this being a cracker.

Why wasn't Diaz rewarded with a place on the bench Sunday?

Would rather see Ferna rested for this one and Delph play tonight.
Keep Ferna fit for Sunday. Far more important game.
Hell I would even play Foden instead of Bernard as well.

We don't have to take it lightly. Would never expect that. But we have a good squad for a reason.

Delph would be more than able to deputise for him tonight against this lot no disrespect but its not Barca. It's madness starting Fern in every league and champions league game. He is 33. I wouldnt imagine he can go the whole season doing that. He should be rested where possible.
