Wigan boss Cook admits facing Man City will be 'massive challenge'

Wigan boss Cook admits facing Man City will be 'massive challenge'

Ilkay Gundogan scored twice and there were also goals for Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva as the Premier League leaders produced yet another commanding display in what is proving a remarkable season.

The game ended in a 2-2 draw with Gonzalo Higuaín getting the two goals for Juventus while red-hot Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen were the scorers for Spurs.

Guardiola's side will host the Swiss team for the return leg at the Etihad on March 7.

Rochdale promised to relay the turf after last weekend's game against Fleetwood was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

The UEFA champions league is back.

City and Liverpool won 4-0 and 5-0 respectively at decent opposition and showed that they are serious contenders for the trophy.

Oberlin then went down in the City box under a challenge from Nicolas Otamendi in the 12th minute, although the referee was not interested as play continued.

They also provide an average rating based on their overall scores for the season.

Next week, Chelsea face Barcelona and Man United travel to Spain for their tie with Sevilla.

Basel had its moments against City, especially early on when the visitors looked susceptible to a long ball behind center backs Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi.

Marketing Director, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Mr. Franco Maria Maggi, said: "We understand the passion and love that Nigerians have for this lovely game". We needed to take the opportunities and be clinical.

Vaclik was called on to make a sprawling save to keep out Gundogan from Aguero's cut-back on 74 minutes, but four away goals sees the Citizens sitting pretty ahead of the second leg.

Gundogan added a fourth after the break with a attractive shot from the edge of the area, and was only denied a hat-trick by the dogged determination of Basle goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik.

Aguero came into the match with 13 goals from 10 games in 2018 - four coming in one half against Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday - and naturally he got involved in the scoring.

Man City will take on Arsenal in the showpiece.

Reality struck for Basel in the 14th minute when Gundogan beat Fabian Frei to Kevin de Bruyne's corner and headed in.
