Manchester City are dreaming of Champions League glory, says John Stones

Pep Guardiola

Asked whether he will make changes to the side for the trip to Vicarage Road, Guardiola replied: "All the teams who play in Europe have a lot of games".

And it would be best to avoid Real Madrid.

Due to the high competition in the Netherlands Championship, "Feyenoord" in recent years has rarely been able to qualify for the Champions League.

Having twice broken the world record transfer fee for defenders, City are expected to put up more resistance at the back and their Expected Goals (xG) against column after four Premier League games is a divisional best 2.00. "I have said before he creates so many goals and chances", Stones said.

"I think we have got to dream and feel confident enough we can do it - and why not because we want to be in every competition, trying to win things", said Stones.

Man City, up against Dutch champions Feyenoord, scored after just 90 seconds into the game thanks to a John Stones header.


Guardiola, who had plenty of success at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, took the reins last summer and led City to a third-place finish in the league while his side crashed out of the Champions League in the round of 16.

They were also aided by poor defending by Feyenoord, back in the Champions League for the first since the 2002-03 season, with Stone's opener trickling in after defender Tonny Vilhena made a comically inept attempt to clear off the line.

He said, "Feyenoord have won more European trophies than Manchester City in their history". History counts. We can not deny English teams have more money, spend more money. It's easy when you are playing with quality players, with intelligent players like them. Of course to score two early goals was so important. "He was so important last season".

After the 5-0 win over Liverpool, they are likely to be a popular tip with Footy Accumulators throughout the season as it would be no surprise for them to hit five or more past several teams who won't able to handle their threat.

Captain Vincent Kompany remains sidelined with a calf injury.

Returning last season for the first time in the last 10 years, the champion's title, Feyenoord also celebrated the return to Rotterdam of European cup matches.
