Marseille 0-3 Manchester City: Torres strikes again as Guardiola’s side cruise

Manchester City dominated from start to finish as they cruised to a 3-0 victory away at Marseille in Group C. Ferran Torres scored his second Champions League goal for Manchester City as Pep Guardiola's side eased to a 3-0 win over Marseille. Playing in a central role in the absence of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, Torres – who had netted in the 3-1 win over Porto in City's opening Group C outing – broke the deadlock when he was teed up by Kevin De Bruyne in the 18th minute. City were well worthy of their lead, though Guardiola may be concerned that his team failed to turn their dominance of possession into clear-cut opportunities until Ilkay Gundogan settled the contest.

Manchester City ‘were left behind’ by Liverpool this season, admits Gundogan

The Turkish midfielder says the reigning Premier League champions have failed to match the standards of previous years under Pep Guardiola Ilkay Gundogan has admitted that Manchester City "were left behind" by Liverpool in the title race this season. Pep Guardiola guided City to a third Premier League crown in 2017-18, as his side blew away the competition to set a new all-time points record of 100. The Blues retained their crown the following season after edging a tense race ahead of Liverpool, who ultimately missed out on English football's top prize by a single point. City were tipped by many to continue their dominance, but the Reds are on the verge of knocking them off their perch after winning 27 of their 29 fixtures so far this season.
