Pep Guardiola Sets New Benchmark For Petty Premier League Nonsense

Tottenham's Dele Alli shoots at goal as Spurs faced Manchester United at Wembley Stadium in London

United are in second place, 15 points behind City with 13 matches left.

Pep Guardiola's team, leading from Danilo's first half goal, looked well in control but Sterling's blunder 20 minutes from time offered a lifeline and renewed belief to the home side.

"When I go back to Manchester and tell the players about my trip I know they will be really excited to come here in the summer".

"I always remember when Sir Alex said in 2005-06, when we won the second title with Chelsea, "we need to improve a lot because they raised the bar to such a level", Mourinho said.

In last month's cup clash particularly - during which the Clarets led 1-0 at half-time - Dyche's side impressed, underling the form that has lifted them to seventh in the table in an excellent campaign. "I could call one of the second team but they play for the second team on Friday", he said.

Teams are permitted seven substitutes for Premier League games, but the Man City manager told Sky Sports "we don't have any more" when asked about his decision to pick six.

These early 12:30 starts often result in a sluggish beginning to matches and I can see a cagey start again here.

"I'm not sure why he's peddling this theme".

Raheem Sterling suffers nightmare miss. He's an absolutely incredible manager and the work he has done with this team is unbelievable and the team performance is absolutely outstanding.

City have not needed any help going to deck recently having been on the end of some nasty challenges that have understandably angered Guardiola and his players, but Mourinho believes refereeing standards are just fine.

"Things like that let you down". It's really poor. I can guarantee you that the academy and youth team coaches at Man City will be really disheartened by that.

However perhaps for the first time this season Guardiola was being roundly criticised.

"With the number of points and improvement we have in relation to last season, in normal conditions the distance would be a distance that leaves the fight open".

Toure left Guardiola's Barcelona to join City in 2010 and has been one of the most influential players in the club's modern history, scoring in Wembley final wins over Stoke City and Sunderland and serving as a star performer in the Premier League title triumphs of 2011-12 and 2013-14.

"From Wednesday afternoon we have to prepare here for Leicester and Basel but we need to break a little bit for everybody".
