Manchester City have been told: If you don’t win your Champions League group there’s something wrong.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men have been drawn against Juventus, Sevilla and Borussia Monchengladbach, and many experts expect them to struggle in Europe once more.
But Noel Gallagher insists that viewpoint is absolute garbage.
“When the draw was made everyone was saying it’s a tough group,” he told the Sports Bar. “But if we don’t win that group with that squad of players then there’s something fundamentally wrong.
“Juventus have got great players but with the first XI we can put out we should win that group, easily. We should win all our home games at a canter and remain unbeaten away from home.”
City have started the domestic season in fine style, winning all four of their Premier League games so far, and Gallagher believes Pellegrini is demonstrating his class – even though he feels it could be his last season in charge at the Etihad Stadium.
He added: “I still think he’ll go but, if he was to stay, I don’t think anyone would be that bothered now.
“He seems to have learned his lesson with this two up front business and he’s showing his quality now. I never expected City to play as well as they have in the last four games.”
