Sterling delights Guardiola but City boss still wants more

  • Manchester City's Leroy Sane has scored five Premier League goals this season

The reality is one team will play for the title (Man City) and the other will play for the fourth place to go straight to Champions League (Man Utd). "It didn't work because the first five or 10 minutes was like the first half".

"For five minutes they were better than us".

Ten-man Huddersfield saw their three-match unbeaten run come to an end with a 2-1 defeat to Brighton at the John Smith's Stadium.

He has been talking to City about an extension for a number of months and Guardiola said the "last information" he had was talks were "going well".

Raheem Sterling came racing out of the blocks in the second half with a series of runs and shots, and eventually managed to put City back in front after reacting quickest to Danilo's spilled shot - and has now scored in every game he has played against Bournemouth for City. Cherries boss Eddie Howe said: "We nullified them for long periods and had moments ourselves when the ball could have bounced our way". "Tell them what's going to happen next Tuesday in Watford and try to win the game and push everybody. Credit to the players for sticking to what we wanted them to do".

Bournemouth will face Pep Guardiola's side following three successive defeats against Manchester United, Newcastle, and last weekend to Arsenal after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a second-half victor. After 14 matches, the undefeated City have collected 38 points from 12 wins and two draws, five points more than second placed Liverpool, who play Everton at home on Sunday.

Yet, City were still far too strong for the dogged hosts, who had goalkeeper Ben Foster to thank for the visitors not racking up the 5-0 and 6-0 thrashings they did on their two previous visits to Vicarage Road.

"We were made to feel those dangers in Champions League and FA Cup last season", he said. I don't know what he ate but it will be on the menu for the next games!

Romelu Lukaku gave United a lifeline when he slotted home from Rashford's pass in the 33rd minute as the Belgian striker grabbed his first goal in 13 games.

However, heading into the game against City, Watford will be pleased to have the opportunity to choose from a number of players for the game.

"I think it is too early to see how decisive it is", Guardiola said of City's advantage.

"From watching City play, I would say they have gone on again this year and credit to the manager and the players for that".
