Guardiola usually dismisses any comparisons with Messi, a player he rates as the "best in history" after having managed the Argentine from 2008-12 during Barcelona's trophy-laden golden era.

On Monday morning, the Times have revealed that Kevin De Bruyne has overtaken Leo Messi in one key stat after Leicester.

Mousa Dembele underlined his status as one of Tottenham's unsung heroes with a dominant display in their 1-0 win over north London rivals Arsenal. It's the whole season, every three days, playing that way every three games.

De Bruyne's first two assists for Raheem Sterling and Aguero were supplied with a majestic stroke of his right foot.

Champions-elect Man City looked strangely out of sorts during the first 45 minutes of their English Premier League clash with Leicester at the Etihad, reported Reuters, but the Foxes were no match for their hosts once Aguero found his groove.

"Granted we have De Bruyne to consider, and Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, and of course Kane will feature in the final line-up".

Paris Saint-Germain are looking just as much a threat as the Citizens too, and have every chance of causing an upset with Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappé on song.

West Ham United climbed five points above the relegation zone and ended a run of three league games without victory with a 2-0 win over Watford thanks to goals from Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic. The way he played, it's hard to find one in Europe'.

US Vice President Mike Pence also attended the Games opening ceremony but had no contact with the North Korean delegation. The two Koreas remain technically at war after their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty.

"Once they scored you could see we were wobbling for a while and they could have scored one or two more, but in the last 10 minutes we should have come back to 1-1". "We scored six goals last season in the last 16 and were out".

"I think you just have to acknowledge the imagination, guile and genius of what De Bruyne does because it's like he sees the game in slow motion and that's what all the great players I've played against or watched do", Redknapp said on the Premier League live show. A tremendous track record and a consistent string of masterful performances from de Bruyne, however, has the potential to break that streak.

Pep Guardiola has also suggested that De Bruyne will win the Ballon d'Or in the future.

"I am very pleased with the way everything is going for me".

City have only progressed beyond the last 16 once in six previous Champions League campaigns - De Bruyne's excellent victor securing a semi-final spot at Paris Saint-Germain's expense in 2016 - and memories of last season's thrilling away goals exit at the hands of Monaco remain fresh for Guardiola. I am playing this way because the team is playing this way.

"It makes it easier for me, it makes it easier for them. At the end, if you get an individual honour it is attractive", he added.
