Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: 'We forgot to attack in Basel clash'

Richard Dunne fears Manchester City's Champions League hopes have taken a hit

In-form winger Raheem Sterling has been struggling with a muscular complaint as well and has missed the last two Premier League ties (Arsenal and Chelsea). So it's not surprising that the cup changes names on the basis of whichever company is sponsoring it-this year, it's called the Carabao Cup.

City initially lead through Gabriel Jesus before Raphael Wicky's men completed an impressive turnaround, and though Guardiola wasn't pleased with his side's performance, he was nonetheless impressed with Elyounoussi - who is attracting attention.

Stoke are 19th in the Premier League table going into the Monday Night Football match with Manchester City - live on Sky Sports - with Lambert having taken over from Mark Hughes at the Bet365 Stadium in January.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - With its first home loss in 15 months, Manchester City ended up stumbling into the quarterfinals of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Why is this season already a big deal for Guardiola and Manchester City? Basel, who made just a quarter of the passes their opponents did, still managed a slender victory over the English champions-elect. And that team was defined as much by their insatiable hunger for trophies as for their footballing style.

In the 72nd minute, Michael Lang blasted past City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo at the near post for his second victor against Manchester clubs this season. You have to be at a very high level to reach the semi-finals which is what the competition demands of you.

"The first half was quite good but, in the second half, we forgot to attack, to play", he said.

Guardiola's comments came ahead of City's intriguing encounter against Stoke City in the Premier League which is scheduled for Monday.

"From tomorrow we'll be happy to be in the quarter-finals for the second time in this club.

I am very proud and happy with the team, in hard circumstances they produced a really good performance", he told reporters. United-Liverpool is one of the most exciting games by far.
