Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Joao Cancelo after his performance against Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Portugal fullback played in both goals in the 2-0 victory.

On Cancelo, he said: "He's playing really well. Sometimes in that position we have to control the risk.

"He is a player with huge quality and his physicality is overwhelming - he would be ready to play tomorrow and his two assists were brilliant.
