City take on the Dutch champions in their opening game of this season's competition, looking to improve on their run to the last 16 before their defeat by Monaco.

The 34-year-old found himself frozen out in similar fashion following the arrival of Pep Guardiola in the summer of 2016, but worked his way back into contention as the season progressed.

"After the game he was speaking to the boys as if nothing happened". I think we [English teams] are in the second level. It shows the character he's got. Guardiola said: "We were not able to win one game away and it doesn't matter if you are playing famous team or lower teams".

We are not dreaming - when you're in that position it's better to be calm.

The might of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Juventus await them in the latter rounds and to stand a chance against them, City must put in a convincing pre-Christmas stint in the group stage. The teams are so physical. Having eclipsed Ajax last season, they will be keen to impress on their return to the big stage they dominated briefly in the early 70s. "He was so important last season - six players finished their contract and he was the only one who stayed because he's a special player".

Guardiola and Toure have had a fraught relationship at times.

It could be that he is thrown straight back into the fold against Feyenoord, but Toure will play no part after being overlooked once again.

Asked if the incident could make the goalkeeper hesitant in future, Guardiola said: "I could understand that feeling if he felt that, but in today's training session there were two or three long balls and he was there".

Captain Vincent Kompany remains sidelined with a calf injury.
