Another broken down move from City with the final pass to Jesus. Mendy has also gone quiet after a bright start.
We have reached the midway point of the half. And its all got rather scrappy in the last few minutes, two misplaced passes from Gundogan.
For all City's possession they have not had their shooting boots on yet, a similar story to the Spurs game and in fact the last few games.
Ouch. Pepe needs treatment after getting a ball in the face. Jesus looks to be playing in a wider role.
Foden flashes a low shot from distance well wide. He has looked lively.
Still all City. The Greeks are happy to soal up the pressure but have offered nothing yet going forward.
CHANCE: Another effort straight at the keeper. A cross is swung in and Jesus's header is comfortable for Sa.
CLOSE! Lovely twisting run from Foden and his shot to the near post is saved. Bright start from the visitors, particularly down the left.
Sterling had strong appeals for a free-kick on the edge of the box whenhe was brought down after a one-two but the ref waves play on.
CHANCE! Another cross from Mendy, it finds Silva at the near post and his header drifts well over.

KICK OFF: Davide Massa blows his whistle and we are underway.
Before kick-off, there will be a minute's silence in memory of Maradona.
COUNTDOWN: 5 mins till kick off!
Olympiakos have only won one of their last eight games against English teams in European competition (D3 L4), with that sole victory coming against Arsenal back in February (2-1 in the UEFA Europa League).
Olympiakos coach Pedro Martins insists his side have no fear despite their 3-0 loss at The Etihad.
"We have absences but we have options and good players and we want to repeat what we did in the second half at City.
"I do not think many teams have done that. We want to play with soul, with courage and make a game of it. City will always be title contenders but we have quality. We have coped with difficult games and that is what we intend to do - continue to fight.
"We still have hopes and we continue to believe we can qualify. We will start the qualifying effort again and look to deprive City of possession.
"We have things in our favour because we are at home, and we are always stronger here. To qualify we will need a minimum of two wins in the remaining matches."
Excluding qualifiers, Olympiakos haven't won any of their last four home games against English opponents in European competition (D2 L2) - they will be looking for their first such victory since February 2014, when they beat Manchester United 2-0 in the UEFA Champions League.
City have made five changes to the side beaten 2-0 away by Tottenham on Saturday. Stones, Gundogan, Foden, Mendy and Sterling all return to the starting XI. De Bruyne and Walker are left out of the squad while Torres, Fernandinho , Mahrez and Laporte are on the bench.
OLYMPIAKOS: Sa, Semedo, Ba, Cisse, Camara, M'Vila, Rafinha, Drager, Fortounis, Pepe, Masouras...Subs: Karargyris, Tzolakis, Vinagre, Papadopoulos, Nikolis, Tsavos, Soudani, Bouchalakis, Androutsos, Kitsos, Vrousai, Sourlis.
Pep Guardiola believes only one person is responsible for Manchester City’s poor start to the season: himself.
“My players are so brave. The reason why [City have struggled] is the manager,” he said.
“I have to find a way to adapt the qualities that we have. I have to adjust something, to let them feel we can create more chances. It’s in my hands to help them.”
MAN CITY: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodrigo, Foden, Bernardo, Sterling (C), Jesus...Subs: Steffen, Carson, Aguero, Zinchenko, Laporte, Torres, Fernandinho, Mahrez, Garcia, Nmecha, Doyle, Palmer.
In the last hour it has been announced that Diego Maradona has died aged 60.
