City have won five major domestic trophies since Guardiola took over in 2016 - including two Premier League titles and an historic domestic treble last year - but have never progressed past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League since the Spaniard's arrival

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said his job at the Premier League club may be on the line if they fail to win the Champions League title this season.

City have won five major domestic trophies since Guardiola took over in 2016 - including two Premier League titles and an historic domestic treble last year - but have never progressed past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League since the Spaniard's arrival.

Former European champion Real Madrid await in the last-16 this season, with the first leg to be played later this month, and Guardiola said he is keen on getting his hands on the trophy he last won with Barcelona in 2011.

City's hope of winning the Premier League title for a third consecutive season have faded in recent weeks with league leader Liverpool 22 points ahead of them.

Guardiola, however, does not think their season has been a complete failure.
