Guardiola to ring changes for Celtic, undecided on Aguero

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will look to turn the page on their turbulent weekend defeat by Chelsea when they entertain Celtic in their final Champions League group game on Tuesday.

UEFA has started disciplinary proceedings against Celtic for the behaviour of their supporters during Tuesday's Champions League game at Manchester City. The Scots insisted on a deal that lasted at least 18 months, meaning the youngster would - in theory - get plenty of game time north of the border, but that he has missed out on an very bad lot at his parent club.

Pep Guardiola's side clinched their spot into the knockout stage after drawing with Borussia Monchengladbach 1-1 on MatchDay #5.

"It's for one season". They are the club I am signed to and I need to see how they are doing. "We go into every game to win". The former Fulham forward's shot struck Caballero in the chest and, having taken the rebound around the City keeper, he was left with an open goal from a not-impossible angle. It remains to be seen just how costly his indiscipline will prove to be.

While City are backed by Abu Dhabi sheikhs, attracted by worldwide TV exposure and a three-year broadcasting rights deal worth over £8 billion, Scottish football earns a paltry £15m a season from Sky Sports and BT Sport with Celtic Scotland's blue chip brand in green and white.

Asked whether he felt wanted at City, Roberts added: "Yes, of course".

Roberts threatened to repeat his trick shortly after hitting the opener but Sane produced a good tackle on the by-line to divert the danger. The Argentine was arguably City's best player on the night, certainly in the first half, exuding an air of calm authority as he distributed neat passes across the middle of the pitch.

Championship Weekend Preview: Playoff what ifs?
A loss to Virginia Tech would be the worst loss any of the teams who realistically have a shot at a playoff spot could have. And of course it'll be more fodder for those who say, well, the playoffs should be eight teams at least, not four.

That ball was pounced on by Moussa Dembele - scorer of two goals in the reverse fixture - before Tom Rogic forced a retreating Willy Caballero into an early save.

"He has good quality with the winger, one against one".

With the final group-stage match kicking off tomorrow for MCFC, here are my three things to watch for. Roberts is the sort of quick, technical player Guardiola enjoys working with, adaptable and clearly confident.

Our systematic approach in terms of young players coming through, getting in the quality players when they're available and then looking to develop the club and the team.

Guardiola said: "There will be changes, definitely".

"We are going to speak with him, the managers (agents), between each other we are going to decide". I don't know how Celtic thinks about the game or how the manager tries to prepare for the game but I know my team-mates and I know my boss. You have to win that respect through our performances through the next years.
