MANCHESTER City’s Champions League ambitions are in ruins once more after Lyon shocked Pep Guardiola’s side in the quarter-final in Lisbon.City started as firm favourites but came out second best against a fiercely determined Lyon in a game that swung on controversy and uncharacteristic errors in the closing stages.Lyon went ahead in the 24th minute with Maxwel Cornet’s smart finish but City, lifeless as Guardiola chose to play a three-man central defence, looked to have been revived by Kevin de Bruyne’s precise strike from Raheem Sterling’s pass after 69 minutes.Former Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, on as a substitute, restored Lyon’s lead in contentious circumstances 11 minutes from time, the video assistant referee (VAR) ignoring what appeared to be an obvious foul by the goalscorer before he ran on to beat Ederson.City pressed for the equaliser but Sterling was guilty of an atrocious miss, somehow sending his finish over the top of an open goal from Gabriel Jesus’ pass.It proved to be hugely expensive as seconds later Lyon set up a semi-final meeting with Bayern Munich when Dembele scored his second after Ederson fumbled a shot from Houssem Aouar’s routine shot. GUARDIOLA MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITYGuardiola has rightly been showered in plaudits for the wonderful football and success he has brought to Manchester City – but his biggest target remains elusive and this was a miserable night for the manager.Guardiola, who has been accused of over-thinking his approach in the Champion League before, adopted a three-man central defensive system and chose to leave many of City’s creators and manipulators on the bench.Lyon deserved respect after eliminating Juventus but this was a ploy that took it too far and resulted in a stuttering City lacking urgency and creativity.He eventually introduced Riyad Mahrez after the break to some effect but Lyon were offered hope and encouragement by Guardiola’s approach and showed magnificent grit and resilience to secure the win.City will rightly claim an injustice over the VAR decision that did not penalise what appeared to be a foul on Aymeric Laporte by Dembele but the team defending for the second goal was horrific, with every City player bar keeper Ederson in the Lyon half when the goal was created when the game was finely balanced at 1-1.City and Guardiola have suffered Champions League disappointment before but this may hurt more than any other – and make no mistake, the much-feted Catalan must take his full share of responsibility for a flawed game.

Anthony Joshua is unconcerned by popularity and says winning is all that is required to maintain public interest.The Londoner won Olympic gold in 2012 and has enjoyed a direct and speedy journey to today’s world title clash with IBF champion Charles Martin at The O2 – live on Sky Sports Box Office. In his previous bout – a seventh-round knockout defeat of long-time rival Dillian Whyte at the same venue – Joshua appeared to land a blow on his opponent after the bell.But Joshua told Behind The Ropes: “This isn’t golf. It’s the fight game, the hurt business. You fight until you’re pulled off your opponent. That’s what I’d tell any fighter in my gym.“You don’t fight and listen for the bell. That’s why people get punched after the bell. As a fighter, let’s not forget what you’re in it for. You’re a gladiator, a warrior and you fight until you’re pulled apart. That’s where I’m coming from.“We keep rocking and rolling until we’re pulled apart and may the best man win. Someone has to go. I enjoy it. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t. Boxing to me is fun and helps me to develop me as a man.“Nobody forces me to do it. I found it myself. I built it myself. I train by myself. It’s all me. I just enjoy it and I like the people I’m around. From a young age, when I was 18, boxing became my life. Without it I don’t think I’ll have much fun.“This is not a popularity contest. This is fighting. I’ve got to win. As long as I’m winning, people are going to keep on watching. I leave the popularity thing down to the PR people. You’ve got to have the focused mentality.”With Joshua wowing the British public with his ferocious run of knockouts to date, the 26-year-old is delighted at the prospect of home advantage when he takes on the American.He added: “I’m not in a rush to be travelling the world. Charles Martin coming over here is class. There are big stadiums here and an unbelievable fanbase so I don’t see why we have to go overseas to fight. I think it’s unbelievable he wants to come here and fight me so I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
