Uefa

from the 2024-25 campaign.Under the plans, the number of teams involved in the tournament will increase from 32 to 36 and those who qualify will play 10 group stage games.

The traditional four team groups will be axed and replaced by a single division, with the top eight teams automatically qualifying for the last 16 and 16 other sides facing off in a play-off round.

The eight teams which emerge victorious in the play-offs will then enter the last 16, with the remainder of the competition following the existing format.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hit out at the reforms, saying: “We demand – the managers – to reduce the calendar, protect the players and they do the opposite. I’m not the guy to tell them.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also concerned about the extra games, saying: “The new ­format of the Champions League gives the players more games – and we need to look after the players so they can play at their best level.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has said he is not a fan of the new format, explaining: “I’m not sure if I like it because I can only see more games at the start of it, more games in a schedule.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who said: “You can’t just introduce always more competitions. It’s very good that the new Super League is off the table, but the new Champions League isn’t great.

However, Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti, who has won the Champions League three times during his management career, believes the new format will be “more exciting from the beginning”.

Thomas Tuchel’s side came back stronger in the second half scoring through Hakim Ziyech before Marcos Alonso turned in Timo Werner’s low cross to secure a 2-1 win for the visitors at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola was angered by referee Anthony Taylor decision to waved away the penalty claim after Zouma appeared to clip the back of Sterling’s leg inside Chelsea’s area.

“I think it’s a penalty, it’s clumsy, he doesn’t play the ball,” Gallagher told Premier League Productions when asked about the incident.

“It is a penalty in my view but I think it is so minimal contact that VAR looks at it, is it a clear obvious error?“He’ll say no, leave it with the on-field [decision]. Many, many times we’ve asked for the on-field referee to make the decision.

“I think in this case it’s left to the on-field [decision]. I feel he’s got it wrong. What I would say is he’s made a genuine decision and I can’t see VAR overturning it.“What you have to remember is he’s [the VAR official] there to say if it’s a clear and obvious error. I think not, in my view it’s a penalty, but it’s so subjective.“A lot of people look at that and say there’s not enough contact. Only a few weeks ago we were talking about how many penalties have been given that wouldn’t have been given in previous years because the tolerance level for contact has been brought down so low.
