Rejection by foster family fuelled my career: De Bruyne

Steven Gerrard Liverpool PS

City face a potentially season-defining week, starting with tomorrow's Champions League quarter-final second leg, a tie that sees us trailing by a goal after last week's 1-0 first leg defeat.

Pep Guardiola said Manchester City's next three matches will go a long way to defining their season as they chase an unprecedented Quadruple.

"The Liverpool game would be enough for me", he said, referring to the raucous atmosphere that accompanied City's 2-1 win over their Premier League title rivals in January. The glean has come off Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment in recent weeks, with their narrow 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday just their second competitive win from their last six matches, the other a 2-1 home victory over Watford, in which they were hugely underwhelming.

McArthur made way for Bakary Sako for Palace, John Stones replacing Sane for City, who removed any lingering doubts about the result when Jesus kept his cool after De Bruyne had played him into the area.

"I thought maybe Chelsea would let me go (in the summer of 2013) but then Mourinho texted me (to say) "You are staying".

He said: "Why can't Spurs win the Champions League?". After all, only three managers have won it more times.

"I know the people say I came here to win the Champions League".

You can see the pattern emerging.

"I started two of the first four games of the season, after the fourth game that was it". They will surely play a strong team in both games but as they hold a two-goal advantage over Napoli Unai Emery may rotate for that game, but he does so at his own risk.

"I came here to play with my team the way we are playing in the last 20 months".

I think that, if a window opens and I feel like I can do well, and do better, and offer more to people, then I would consider it. Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defending Ilhan Omar over 9/11 comments.


Yet, to some, Guardiola's record in soccer's grandest club competition is increasingly becoming a stain on his otherwise stacked resume, and the Manchester City manager is 90 minutes away from delivering another underwhelming Champions League campaign.

"As soon as I got back to my parents' house, I walked in the door and could see that my mother was crying", he said.

The Englishman is in red hot form and will be the main man for Manchester City on a day they need him the most.

José called me into his office in December, and it was probably the second big life-changing moment for me.

"What we have is the belief".

It was a standout performance when most expected him to wilt under the pressure of going head-to-head with Westbrook. Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings and the Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.


Harry Winks is also struggling with a groin injury, but Pochettino has said he is "optimistic" that he will be fit. "We are going to be 11 against 11 on the pitch and of course to forget everything and try to win the game, to try to fight and to challenge them".
