The Colombia worldwide has scored 22 goals in all competitions, with Jardim hailing the player as a great striker. Monaco definitely look set to play on the counter, but it will be a counter so quick that City will have to take it very seriously whenever they lose the ball.
Guardiola has yet to decide whether to play Claudio Bravo - who kept a clean sheet in the FA Cup draw with Huddersfield Town - or Willy Caballero, who has started the last three Premier League games, in goal.
Mbappe took Valere Germain's place alongside Falcao in Monaco's starting XI and the 18-year-old in the flourescent orange boots immediately caught the eye.
The Belgium global recently became a father and said he has had little time to watch football but added: "Before training and during training we will be talking about them".
Toure has said he feels like a kid again under Guardiola.
Wolves set to trouble Blues
Terry will consider his next move at the end of the season and Chelsea do not expect to address the situation until May. Now in the FA Cup we are in the quarter-final, I am pleased for this because it shows that we are working very well.
"My impression against PSG and from what I've seen is they're a really strong team", he said recently of Leonardo Jardim's side, puffing out his cheeks for effect.
Monaco, the top-scoring team in any of Europe's top five leagues, with 76 goals in 26 Ligue 1 games, will test Pep Guardiola's star-studded side, which is coping with the loss of forward Gabriel Jesus.
It was his loose, lofted clearance that gifted possession to Fabinho prior to Monaco's leveller, the Brazilian playing a one-two with Bernardo Silva and crossing for Falcao to net with a flying header.
But within six minutes Monaco were level as Guardiola's goalkeeping problems came back to bite him. "We have to go to the gym in the next days!"
"Monaco play good football - they care about the ball and how they use it".
Berbatov to Spurs: don't underestimate Fulham in the FA Cup
The second half disappointed us that we were better and we created a chance when in the first half it was hard to create a chance. The club's prolific striker suffered a knee injury of some sort in the club's embarrassing 1-0 loss at Gent yesterday.
On reports City were of particular interest to him, he said: "It was my dad who said that, and he spoke about clubs that I might have been interested in in the past".
According to The Times, Hart will be free to join a Premier League rival this summer but only if they meet City's demands of £20m for the goalkeeper.
The turning point was when Radamel Falcao missed a penalty as Monaco led 2-1 early in the second half. The full-backs play like wingers; the wingers play like attacking midfielder; the two strikers are fighters.
City would not be regarded among the favourites yet but if they can get through this round, the event could open up. And if City don't win comprehensively at Etihad, Monaco have all the artillery to rip them into shreds in the second-leg in France. Monaco were content to break and did so with menace when Mbappe strode at the City defence at frightening pace.
Cubs' Kris Bryant practices with Hall of Fame pitcher, doesn't know it
Though once Maddux took over pitching duties for Bryant's BP, he didn't do much to reinforce his character's clownish nature. Maddux, dressed as a sound engineer during the video shoot, took over to throw batting practice to Bryant during the shoot.
