City knocked out of Champions League

Pogba's performance against Chelsea was roundly criticised

Hired to turn Manchester City into true European heavyweights, Pep Guardiola failed just like those before him as his expensively-assembled side crashed out of the Champions League to Monaco on Wednesday.

Monaco has been in an nearly identical position before, overturning a 4-2 loss away to Real Madrid in the first leg to reach the semifinals in 2004 - the year it reached the final.

Jardim had spoken before the game that he did not think his side were any worse than the Blues, and took time afterwards to suggest City had been lucky to bring a lead into the second leg. Jemerson returned in place of the suspended Kamil Glik in defence, while Guardiola, who took charge of his 100th game in Europe, made two changes with Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov given the nod.

"I think it was important as a team to make the next step".

White House requests $1.5 billion from Congress to begin border wall construction
After the report came out, Trump vowed to bring the price "way down", though he did not offer specifics. There are also already indicators that funding a total wall could be a tough sell in Congress.

"We are playing very well at the moment and we have a team that plays mostly attractive games and sometimes the pundits are waiting to analyse", Toure added of the Monaco clash.

9 - Antoine Griezmann has been directly involved in nine of Atletico's last 10 home Champions League goals (scored seven, two assists). Right now Arsenal have a Premier League trip to West Brom and the ongoing fight for a top four finish to consider. We tried to react but they have quality and we suffered.

"Our job is to do as we well can".

The draw for Champions League quarterfinals will be held in Nyon's UEFA headquarters on Friday.

Trump Ally: President Was Likely Wrong On Obama Wiretapping Claim
Appearing on Good Morning America Monday, Trump's senior counselor Kellyanne Conway addressed the allegations . Trump provided no evidence for his claim.

Conceding two goals early is never a good thing, but City must have felt doubly disappointed at halftime after their wonderful home win was basically undone in less than 30 minutes. After a wonderful home leg win, City had a two-goal cushion but also faced the risk that Monaco's away goals would trump them, which they ultimately did.

Having to re-energise themselves for the less glamorous task of seeing off Stoke might not be easy and Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is counting on Kante to provide the necessary inspiration.

City did indeed improve after the break, playing with a goal that was lacking earlier. "Sterling and Sane are good going forward but not good defensively", he said.

City's attacks were few and far between and those they did piece together fizzled out before they reached the box.

Are Drilling Bans Leading Australia Into An Energy Crisis?
In addition to helping in storing renewable energy, the battery is expected to increase competition in the local energy market. BHP Billiton was not able to respond to The Monitor's request for comment on the new plan before our print deadline.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will be without England striker Kane for several weeks after their leading scorer suffered an ankle injury in last weekend's FA Cup win against Millwall. We must not get carried away, even though there are lots of nice memories. This shows once again that in football everything is possible. It came against the backdrop of failing miserably to match last season's Premier League success and the sacking of manager Claudio Ranieri, the architect of that miracle.
