Mahrez-Sane give City lead

Mahrez-Sane give City lead

The champions are still undefeated in the league this campaign, winning 12 and drawing two of their 14 contests, which has taken them two points clear at the top of the table.

"Raheem, for example, in the first half was not involved".

"So, yes, we might be a bit better".

Pep Guardiola declared himself "delighted" to see his side scrap their way to a 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium.

Sane is in talks with City about agreeing a new deal, but Guardiola suggested he had not played much of a role in those negotiations.

"Sterling changed the game and Sane was fantastic too".

"I don't think we regard ourselves as invincible", Gundogan told Kicker magazine. He helps us a lot.

The changes in personnel however, had little effect on Guardiola's well-oiled machine, and only the brilliance of Ben Foster ensured City didn't head into the interval with more than a one-goal advantage. "We haven't done enough defensively and weren't clinical enough in attack". "The opponents had a good side, so strong in front, we could not press". The home side doubled their lead after James Maddison, who was sent off in last week's defeat at Brighton, scored a stunning goal to get back into the fans' good books.

Dramatic pictures show earthquake's path of destruction in Alaska
Alaska Governor Bill Walker told CBS News on Friday night that the state was just beginning to evaluate the extent of the damage. It had lasted several minutes and caused a destructive tidal wave across the entire West Coast, totaling some 130 casualties.

"Usually when you come here you are vulnerable to the individual quality", Howe said. The goals were scrappy. I asked them for more at half-time but my speech was ridiculous because in the first five or ten minutes, it didn't work - it was the same as the first half!

His impressive form saw club-record goalscorer Sergio Aguero fall down the pecking order as manager Pep Guardiola cited the Brazil worldwide as the preferred number nine due to his tireless work ethic in his possession-based system.

"We've got a broad squad with more than 11 top players".

Raheem Sterling was given a rest and Mahrez and Sane stepped up to try to keep their place for Saturday's trip to Chelsea, knowing the England winger is likely to return.

"Our coach was a world class player himself, who can perfectly assess everything around those two hard games per week", he said. It's too early to see how decisive it is. "You finish Boxing Day and January is tougher and February again".

The two had come up against each other last month wherein the Citizens emerged victorious 3-1.

Aguero's form has limited the Brazilian's playing time recently but the 21-year-old said he was ready to contribute if needed following his own injury concerns, which saw him miss last week's Champions League win over Lyon.
