Manchester City Praise as they took a 2-0 first-leg win over Borussia Monchengladbach

Rio Ferdinand and Owen Hargreaves have lauded praise on Manchester City after they cruised to a 2-0 Champions League victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.

Goals from Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus gave Pep Guardiola’s side a two-goal advantage going into the second leg of their Round of 16 tie.

City will be heavy favourites to advance to the quarter finals, with two away goals meaning their German opponents will need to equal the score to take the game to extra-time.

Pep Guardiola’s side are in imperious form and are now on a 19-game winning streak.

Guardiola’s side are regarded as one of the favourites for the tournament as they search for their first Champions League trophy.

Ferdinand who won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008, said that City will have to be wary of Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

The BT Sport pundit said after the game: ‘I think Bayern have the experience and quality. Paris Saint-Germain as well.

When asked if any team could stop City, Hargreaves added: ‘I don’t see it – they can only stop themselves through mistakes and injuries and I can’t see that.’

The victory over the Bundesliga side is the latest in a fantastic run for Manchester City, who are on a 19-game winning run.

Therefore it would be a huge surprise for Monchengladbach to mount a come-back in the second-leg.

When asked about the possibility of the German side getting back into the tie, Hargreaves said: ‘It’s not going to happen.

‘They’ve conceded six goals in this 19-game winning run. That is off the charts.

‘Clean sheets is standard procedure now for Man City and they’re at least going to score two every game so an unbelievable performance.’

Hargreaves added that he can’t see City running out of gas by the end of the season.

He said: ‘I can’t see them slowing down they play at a speed that suits their game.

‘Everybody’s playing unbelievable football, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Cancelo, Stones everyone. I think Aguero’s coming back, De Bruyne’s back, Raheem Sterling, even if someone has an off day or with three or four injuries, I just can’t see them dropping off.
