Boss Pep Guardiola addressed the media ahead of City's Champions League clash with Barcelona at the Etihad Stadium.

The Catalan manager believes Barca are the best side in world football – but says he has never doubted City’s ability to win games, no matter how tough the opponents.

“We will try,” he said. “I have never thought that we can’t win a football match and I never will. Even when we lot 4-0. It’s difficult and we know we need to play almost perfectly to win - and if not, we will congratulate them and move on.

“Maybe we are going to change the way we press, our build up, control. I would like to play in good level for 90 minutes.”

City sit second in Group C and after taking just one point from their last two Champions League fixtures and have Borussia Monchengladbach just one point behind them in third.
