Summary: Crystal Palace - Manchester City 1:0 (Sport1)
Manchester City last night (Tuesday) provided one of the greatest shows in its history in the Champions League, with a resounding 7:0 over R.B.

Erling Holland scored a historic five, everything worked, and yet, at the end, Pep Guardiola claimed that "I will always be a hard failure" - and all because of Julia Roberts.
"I am a failure in the Champions League. Even if I win the Champions League three times I will be a failure," said the Spanish manager, in an amusing speech.
"I have three idols in my life - Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Julia Roberts. These are my three idols. Three years ago Julia Roberts came to Manchester - not in the nineties, when Alex Ferguson won title after title. She came at a time In it we were better than United, and she went to visit them. Not us. That's why, even if I win the Champions League, I can't compete with the fact that Julia Roberts came to Manchester and didn't visit us.
