UEFA Champions League Report: Manchester City v Olympique Lyon 19 September 2018

Man City news Pep Guardiola and Riyad Mahrez

Guardiola praised Arteta for his "outstanding contribution" after last season's record-setting title win and said he hoped his compatriot would stay so they could "finish what we started together in the upcoming years".

Manchester City suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Lyon in their opening Champions League game on Wednesday. "I will be on the touchline and try to make the right decisions and for the rest nothing will change".

He stated that Real Madrid are still favourite to win this season's Champions League trophy despite losing their all-time highest goalscorer, Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in the summer.

"It's a surprise to be made favourites when there is a team out there that has won the competition three times in a row", Arteta added. There were a few nervy moments late on but they were worth winners from there on, leaving Manchester City to deal with a harsh reality check. And I don't think today is the day to talk about it.

Having spent five years at Arsenal as a player, Arteta was widely thought to be a candidate to replace the departing Arsene Wenger in the off-season, only for former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery to be given the job.

Brett Kavanaugh’s Accuser Willing to Testify, Lawyer Says
Lawyer Debra Katz, who is representing Ford, said her client was willing to testify about her allegation before the Senate panel. Feinstein acknowledged her knowledge of the accusation last week but kept Ford's identity private until the Sunday Post article.

"I dunno, I have to see how I feel".

"We have a situation that we wouldn't choose, but we will do our best to make sure everything else is as normal as possible".

"Obviously (Guardiola) is disappointed not to be as involved, but he had a reaction in the last game and we respect UEFA's decision", Arteta said.

With manager Pep Guardiola serving a touchline ban and watching on from the stands, City will have to do things the hard way if they are to finally lift that famous European trophy.
