Shakhtar Donetsk coach Fonseca: I believe in Man City upset

Edwin van der Sar claims Manchester City and United are taking the Premier League by storm in 2017-18… but Pep Guardiola Reveals Manchester City Working on New Long-Term Contract for Midfield Star

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne, right, shoots at goal during the Champions League Group F soccer match between Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk at Etihad stadium, Manchester, England, Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017.

After taking a little time to warm up against Palace, City were back to their irresistible best in the second half. Benjamin Mendy will be tested before the game after injuring himself at the weekend.

The left-back limped off during Saturday's 5-0 destruction of Palace, which made Guardiola's team the outright Premier League leaders.

"Having him on the same team now is a big bonus, he is a quality player".

There has been an indifference to some of the competition's nuances, when looked at in comparison to the excitement of the Premier League, while antipathy towards governing body UEFA and ticketing issues have not helped.

John Stones. The Englishman has scored three goals in his last three games in this competition - all headers from corners.

Didier Drogba contributed 29 of their 103 goals, rounded off by a hat-trick in their 8-0 win over Wigan on the last day of the season. "If you know me relatively well, I do like a bit of banter", he said. "I'm pretty sure that in the next games it's going to happen".

Manchester city this season destroys everything in its path: the bulls have won their last six matches with a total score of 24:2, and in each game the team of Josep Guardiola shows intimidating for opponents efficiency (19.7 per shot on average per game, 64,7% of possession and 88.6% of precision gears).

They are top of the Ukrainian League and have a wealth of European experience, all of which makes this game an intriguing one.

Tesla might have a new partner to develop self-driving auto 'brains'
Tesla silicon project is being headed by longtime chip architect Jim Keller who took over from Chris Lattner in June. Tesla also brought other veterans in the tech industry: Ganesh Venkataramanan, Bill McGee, and Dan Bailey.

All four teams in the group have one point, after Spartak drew 1-1 at Maribor.

"People say, "Napoli, it's not Milan or Juventus" and, "Shakhtar, it's Ukraine", but this group is tricky".

Pep Guardiola will however, be without star duo Ilkay Gundogan and Vincent Kompany.

And, as the two sides continued to feel each other out, perhaps the pressure was beginning to tell on Guardiola who was involved in an angry exchange of words with opposite number Paulo Fonseca after De Bruyne was penalised in front of the two benches.

Besiktas vs. Leipzig Turkish champions Besiktas meet RB Leipzig for the first time as the German upstarts hunt a maiden win in their debut season in Europe.

I genuinely believe the football played in the opening six games of the season is the best City have played in my lifetime, and probably ever.

Shakhtar were rocked last week by the news their captain Darijo Srna, the vastly experienced former Croatia worldwide, had failed a drugs test. The nine-time Ukrainian Premier League victor insists he has never knowingly taken a banned substance.

The 35-year-old has not officially been banned over the out-of-competition test but he has voluntarily made himself unavailable as he fights to clear his name.
