John Stones blunder gifts Burnley surprise lead over Manchester City

City won't accept a decline in sky-high standards: Gundogan

City won't accept a decline in sky-high standards: Gundogan

Added to this is the somewhat freakish decision for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to be used only the Chelsea v Arsenal game and not over the two legs between Manchester City and Bristol City.

"All competitions are very hard, but we have chances [to win all four]".

"My priority is the next one - tomorrow", Guardiola said before the game and he was true to his word with Nicolas Otamendi, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho all starting, while Claudio Bravo and Oleksandr Zinchenko were given rare starts too.

"If it doesn't happen, we are going to move forward with the players we have".

"David is a legend for the club, what he's done". Yet to be beaten in the Premier League, they are also heavy favourites to win the League Cup at Wembley next month. "I am happy for him to have made his statement and it is not easy for him to travel to Spain and England back and forth".

Manchester City have been nearly flawless in domestic competition this term.

And they were ahead in the 25th minute when Ashley Barnes pounced on John Stones' uncharacteristic error to blast a shot past Bravo.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted: "The UNSC rebuffed the U.S.'s naked attempt to hijack its mandate". Iran's interior minister said up to 42,000 people took part during the week of protests.

Tough game to find value in but it could depend on what team Pep Guardiola plays.

Thereafter the home side, with a few changes but a host of stars on show, had plenty in hand and they ran out convincing winners in the end, keeping alive their hopes of a domestic clean sweep.

Ilkay Gundogan's clever free kick put in Aguero for the equaliser and the German's brilliant back-heel put his teammate in again to turn the score around two minutes later.

"We've got a lot of respect for them - they have an fantastic team with an incredible manager - but it's a massive opportunity to make a special moment again".

Immediately on the other side, Burnley had a chance as Ben Mee headed a corner back across the face of goal with Barnes unable to get a decisive touch at point blank range, which then set City on a counter attack that didn't amount to anything. And the Catalan believes they have made a good start.

City's effort to get on terms were quite laboured until some quick thinking got them out of trouble ten minutes after the break.

"We play the first leg here at home, so, of course, we want to win that game". We want to try to have the flawless result in the first one.
