Hoddle: Man City now real chance to win Champions League

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle has hailed the impact Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are making this season.

Hoddle wrote for the Daily Mail: "It has taken them almost 10 years but Sheikh Mansour, the owner of Manchester City, must feel that the club are finally where he wanted them to be.

"Of course they have had their past successes and those two Premier League titles. But what they didn't have under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini was a team that you felt was ready for the European challenge.

"It feels different now. The level of domination they are achieving in the Premier League would put them among Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain as favourites for the Champions League.

"In fact, they have a squad capable of winning four trophies. Obviously, the Champions League will be the hardest but it's not beyond them."
