English clubs enjoy insane opening five minutes in tonight's Champions League games

John Stones bagged a brace while Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus scored one each to put the Premier League side atop the group table.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola toasted a blistering start to his team's Champions League campaign after they ruthlessly despatched Feyenoord in Rotterdam.

City's next European hurdle is a home clash against Shakhtar Donetsk, who beat Napoli 2-1 in their opener, on September 26.

A fourth was added in the second half to ensure Pep Guardiola's side got their Champions League campaign off to the flawless start.

Pakistan aiming to seal T20I series against World XI
Pakistan had piled up 183-4 after they were sent into bat by World Xi skipper Faf du Plessis. This is huge not just for Pakistan but for the entire cricket world.


De Bruyne was a constant threat in the Group F opener, and Guardiola said after the match that the Belgium global is "one of the best players I've ever seen in my life".

While they are without the injured Nicolai Jorgensen, who was the league's top scorer with 21 last season, Guardiola struck a cautious note. "'Why can't you win today and in three days" time?

City have spent more than £200 million (S$356 million) over the summer strengthening their squad after losing to Monaco in the last-16 stage last season, and de Bruyne believes they are much stronger now.

The Premier League club had 24 shots on goal while their opponents had just seven - and scored from the two that were on target.

The 26-year-old Danish global - last year's Eredivisie top scorer with 21 goals in 32 games - will not play in the City match, Feyenoord announced on Monday.

"If you want to make a step forward you have to do this".

De Bruyne admits he is happy to be compared with the greats - but knows the heat is now on him to prove his boss right.

Having lifted a first Eredivisie title in 18 years last season, Feyenoord are now back in the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2002/03, when they failed to make it past this stage. Last season we did not win one game away. I grew up loving the Holland culture, how they play.

Sister Ann says that "I don't see myself as the important one" and that "I had the chainsaw, and I was able to help out. Via FaceTime, she has been talking to them, easing the concerns of her community in Los Angeles, she said.


Most of that investment came in the defence with the signings of Danilo, Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, and Stones admitted that he will have to "keep working hard" to maintain his spot on both a domestic and global scale. There are a lot of things to do but a start like this is so important.
