Burnley 1 Manchester City 1: Gudmundsson proves Pep right after Sterling's shocker

Burnley 1 Manchester City 1: Gudmundsson proves Pep right after Sterling's shocker

Stoke City's goalless draw with Watford also left them alongside Newcastle and Brighton, just four points ahead of West Brom.

Somehow Burnley were still in the game and they came close to levelling when a fine Lennon strike was pushed against the woodwork by Ederson. They got a goal in the last 10 minutes and never stopped believing.

With a thumping Danilo effort giving City a 1-0 lead on 22 minutes, Sterling should have secured the three points when he raced onto a Kyle Walker cutback on 71 minutes only to somehow knock the ball wide from three yards.

City's Under 23 side, managed by Simon Davies, played on Friday evening and lost 1-0 to Swansea, with the starting line-up consisting exclusively of teenagers.

Elsewhere, Stephen Ward returned to training earlier this week and may be welcomed back into the team, while centre-back James Tarkowski is unlikely to return after missing out the Newcastle game due to a groin problem.

But the Patriots say it's nothing they will spend time talking about this week. "We're in the last week of the season". Eagles defensive tackle Tim Jernigan missed practice with an illness, a "24-hour deal", Pederson said.

"After the game against Burnley until next Wednesday the players will be resting", Guardiola added.

The visitors will be without Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Benjamin Mendy. And with their local rivals set to play later on Saturday, they will have a chance to further extend their lead with a win. Even if they played yesterday, bring one and put them on the bench. "I have a little idea about the players who are going to join us in the States but we are going (to) see".

The former Chelsea boss has no doubt improved Manchester United in his 18-month spell at the club, taking them comfortably in contention to qualify for next season's Champions League again, now sitting three points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea in third and fourth respectively. "They're the best side in the division and the best squad in the division".

Burnley midfielder Steven Defour is expected to miss the rest of the season through injury, manager Sean Dyche has said.

Guardiola, as well as Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, have called for referees to protects players from unsafe challenges following recent bad tackles by West Brom's Matt Phillips and Cardiff City's Joe Bennett on City players. That to me looks like a protest, and I'm not sure why he's peddling this thing. City are more than capable of putting the Clarets to the sword late on as they understandably tire but I favour a one or two nil score-line and I'd rather player Aguero in the First and Last Goalscorer markets at 13/5.
