MANCHESTER CITY STARS ARE SPOT ON WITH STYLE BUT THEIR DEFENCE LACKS IT AS THEY WERE CRUSHED OUT OF
Once again, not even assistant Brian Kidd could escape the call to the pull on the team uniform - which this time consisted of an understated combination of black turtle-neck tops beneath charcoal-grey suits, with black shoes to boot.
Man-City boss Pep Guardiola football fashion icon once again was spot-on in the fashion department as he had his squad show up in matching outfits for the trip to Monaco on Tuesday, ahead of the team's Champions League second-leg match on Wednesday night.
The last time the players went through this process for a Champions League away fixture, they lost 4-0 away to Barcelona in Camp Nou.
On that occasion, Man-City stars wore a more complex ensemble of white shirts and black ties, beneath grey jumpers and black-grey bomber jackets.
The only odd-man out appeared to be Raheem Sterling's wearing of a black baseball cap, special exemption for which Sterling must have had to fight tooth and nail with his perfectionist manager.

Another Champions League away trip, another Manchester City squad style outing.

Since former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola took over the reigns at Manchester City in the summer, he has put in place new policies for players including limitations on wi-fi-access at the training ground and strict diet regimes.
