Raheem Sterling in line to return for Manchester City's clash against Stoke

It was not enough to prevent City progressing to the quarter-finals on the back of a 5-2 aggregate success but Guardiola, who made six changes, was frustrated with his side's lack of urgency. "In the second half it was really, really poor".

Leaders City have 78 points with nine games left and need four wins to wrap up their first league title under Guardiola. "But playing in that competition with 10 against 11 for 55 minutes, like playing in the Champions League, you are always at risk". Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. City's first trophy is on the sideboard, while a second is within touching distance. For giving an opinion.

Aside from the overall result of the tie, there were some other positives for City on the night.

Wednesday's game against Basel, with City all but through to the Champions League quarter-finals, would be a good opportunity for him to return to the team and to regain form and confidence. They greeted the Champions League anthem by setting off several flares and they never allowed their noise levels to drop - chanting, clapping and bouncing throughout.

"And we will see our chairman and be there". Secure and tidy in his tackling and positioning, alert in his covering and strong and quick into the tackle.

"We have a certain pride", Basel coach Raphael Wicky said, "and against a team that plays every three days and is beating everyone, it's very special". Disappointing lack of urgency and direction.

In the early stages of this campaign, that is exactly what he was doing.

"If we try to play football the same way they do then we will be beat - that is the reality". Leroy Sane wrong-footed the Basel defence with a diagonal run to the edge of the area before finding Bernardo Silva on the right.

We acheived another victory here three years ago when someone who addresses himself by the perpendicular pronoun defied years of Telegraph tradition and unilaterally began calling FC Basel by their proper name and dared to ditch Basle.

"Maybe it was because we had less pressure, that we had nothing to lose", Elyounoussi suggested.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has denied that his agent has been in England to discuss a new deal. Booked for a wildly mistimed lunge on Lang. "The champions are still Chelsea".

DF, Tosin Adarabioyo, NR - Came on for Foden after 87 minutes.
