Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says that his players lack confidence in Europe.

As Manchester City and Liverpool prepare for a make-or-break week in the Champions League, here are five points to consider ahead of the action on Tuesday and Wednesday:

City enter last chance saloon

Manchester City appear to have developed a debilitating mental block as they continually fail to live up to their billing in the Champions League, with manager Manuel Pellegrini under increasing pressure to find a rapid solution to their European woes as he prepares for the daunting visit of Bayern...

Manchester City show glimmers of improvement in crucial Swansea win

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini hailed his team's resilient performance in a 2-1 comeback win over Swansea City.

In the bad old days Manchester City fans, amongst the most downtrodden specimens to follow this wonderful sport of ours, would manage to see positive trends in any number of tiny changes to their City-supporting existence. Watching the team's struggles every weekend, their eyes became skilled at picking out the slightest sign of an improvement, however small it might have been.

The merest thing could get the spirits soaring: a corner that finally fell on a City attacker's head, or perhaps a goal...

Player Ratings: Signs of 2013-14 as Man City rally past Swansea

Swansea struck early, but Manchester City rallied to edge out the visitors.

Recently, something has been going badly wrong for Manchester City. Week after week, the Blues were struggling to control play, even in matches in which they dominated possession. It felt like the wheels were ready to come off after a defeat to CSKA Moscow and a somewhat fortuitous draw with Queens Park Rangers.

Yet, here we are after an international break, and a solid display against Swansea City, a 2-1 triumph at home, could be a turning point. The performance was by no means a classic, but...

Man City vs. Swansea: Supporters prepare for return of the "yoyo derby"

The ESPN FC crew discuss the 'boring' title race in the Premier League, and respond to your tweets about Manchester City and the problems with Tottenham.

While both Manchester City and Swansea have been chugging along in professional football for 115-plus years, the two cities have managed to studiously avoid each other for 103 of that total. When you consider that the recent fortunes of the two clubs represent possibly the two most unstable trajectories in modern football, that can be considered something of a surprise.

When Swansea catapulted themselves up to the First Division under John Toshack in the early 1980s, they did so from a Fourth Division...

Sort it out, Reds: 5 things Brendan Rodgers & company must get right

ESPN FC'S Gabriele Marcotti gives his take on Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool's notable transfers over the past two seasons.

After a poor start to the season, news of Daniel Sturridge's latest injury knocked everyone at Liverpool back down to earth with a fearsome bump.

Every significant Liverpool title challenge since they last won the league in 1990 was followed by a year of seismic disappointment, often resulting in the departure of the manager that almost climbed to the summit. It's fair to say it's never been as disappointing as this current campaign.

Brendan Rodgers is looking for a quick fix that wins points and...

Manuel Pellegrini must lift Manchester City malaise after break

ESPN FC's Ian Darke discusses Manchester City's current run of form and questions whether Manuel Pellegrini can turn it around.

International breaks have long been the bane of club managers' lives and Manuel Pellegrini will be counting the hours before he can have his clutch of precious athletes safely back under his wing this week. It has been a long time, however, since such a pause in the domestic calendar proved so accommodating for Manchester City.

Well used to having a bright, brisk spell of good form interrupted by almost the entire squad heading out of the automatic doors at Manchester Airport, Pellegrini and his...
