Pep Guardiola has asked fans to give Gabriel Jesus time to adapt to the English game after making his first start for Manchester City.

Manchester City have officially announced their starting eleven and substitutes for this afternoon's FA Cup fifth round tie against Sam Allardyce's Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

City provided the first real chance after nine minutes when David Silva's close range effort forced Wayne Hennessey into a fine save. "I wouldn't say the game was easy but I know exactly what to do".

"Today there was a lot of changes in the team and yet we were still able to put in a good performance. He is so aggressive even though he is not a tall, tall guy", the former Barcelona boss told a post-match news conference.

Having spent a lot of time in a well-established club, a move to lower league clubs could seem unnatural but there are some players who need the experience of playing in such leagues to regain the kind of sharpness that got them noticed in the first place.

"The pass for the first goal is outstanding".

Mike Connors, 'Mannix' star dead at 91
According to his son-in-law Mike Condon , Connors died Thursday in Tarzana, Calif. a week after being diagnosed with leukemia. Connors filed suit against CBS and Paramount in 2011, asserting that they failed to pay him millions of dollars in royalties.

Overall, City rediscovered the clinical edge Guardiola has criticised them for lacking too often this season, although Sane made an inauspicious start with a terrible headed miss from Sterling's third-minute cross. Three strikers who are so, so young.

Sane joined City from Schalke during the close season, like Sterling the year before and new recruit Jesus at considerable expense to refresh an aging squad.

"After the game against Arsenal and his injury he realised he had to make a step forward and he did it".

The teams last played in August 2016 and the game ended in a 1 - 1 draw. He is youngster who achieved great status a year ago, but when he showed up in the Brazilian national team, we could see that he will be a great, great player, at the European level, as is already happening.

Guardiola's been known for his rotations of players all over the field, as he thrives on experimenting with the different abilities and features he sees in his players, so he definitely needs a deep roster to do what he does best.
