I'm so proud - Guardiola hails 'incredible' Man City

Riyad Mahrez a major doubt for Man City vs Chelsea after being spotted on crutches

It took just 52 seconds for Egypt star striker Mohamed Salah to register his name in the score sheet in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Manchester City at the International Champions Cup. "The average age of our players in the first half was very young".

Bernardo Silva came off the bench to replace Mahrez and the Portugal global starred with a brace as Premier League champions City overturned a 2-0 deficit.

Often fielding five or more teenagers, City pushed Dortmund and Liverpool hard before beating Bayern Munich in Miami on Saturday evening.

Subs: Gnabry (7), Zirkzee (6), Johansson (6), Zylla (n/a).

Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez, for example, do not even make the list of 10 most expensive signings ever, while Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have several individual players to have cost more than anyone bought by the Blues.

Subs: Silva (8), Harrison (6), Bernabe (6), Gomes (6), Garre (n/a).

'It will be a huge experience for these guys to see that we can play against good teams.

Riyad Mahrez has suffered an ankle injury ahead of the start of Manchester City's season.

Bou Ammar, from Shbiki, said there weren't many men left to defend the village when the militants attacked. On Wednesday, Russia-backed regime forces pressed their heavy bombardment of IS territory in Daraa.

Nmecha hit the post with a confident effort soon after he was denied by Sven Ulreich's leg when the game was goalless.

The Egypt worldwide, who was Liverpool's top scorer last season with 44 goals in 52 appearances across all competitions, suffered a shoulder injury in the club's Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid in May.

The German champions extended their advantage nine minutes later and it was the tried and tested combination of Franck Ribery and Robben that cut open the City defence.

Both sides threw on a couple youngsters in the remaining stages of the second half, but it was Guardiola's side who held on to claim their first win in the International Champions Cup.

Nmecha, born in Germany and capped by England at youth level, was one of six teenagers to start for Pep Guardiola's side.

City's opening games against Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool had both ended in narrow defeats, but with Guardiola opting for familiarity - eight players in the starting lineup here had begun all three games of this U.S. tour - it was another young side full of running.

City's next match is the Community Shield clash at Wembley Stadium against Chelsea next Sunday before their Premier League opener at Arsenal on August 12.

Dear oh dear, City's players genuinely looked like they were going to school.
