Guardiola hails 'big victory' for gritty City

Man City twitter

"I'd have thought if you're a centre-half dealing with that you'd head it away". I think what happened, the opponent doesn't want to play.

After second-placed Manchester United had beaten Arsenal on Saturday, Pep Guardiola's side were under pressure to register their 13th league win on the trot, but the runaway leaders were made to work extremely hard on Sunday. I understand. I am not judging but it is hard.

It proved successful in the first half as City dominated possession but struggled to create clear-cut chances.

I'm not sure it is the most exciting I've ever seen, because there were times when Arsenal's Invincibles played some really unbelievable stuff. 'If we can take something like Fergie time, it is welcome, a pleasure.

Guardiola took action at the interval, sending on Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus for his countryman and full-back Danilo, laying his side out in an ambitious 4-2-4 shape - Silva and De Bruyne as the midfield two.

Both clubs have Champions League group games to fulfil before arguably the biggest game of the Premier League season, City against Shakhtar Donetsk and United versus CSKA Moscow, but the build-up starts now. "But we got a point and need to look forward now".

Having seen Huddersfield and Southampton stifle City in the past week and go close to getting a result, Moyes made a decision to replicate their formula.

Bradley Beal gets championship-like celebration after dropping career-high 51 points
McCollum who scored 13 of his team-high 26 points in the fourth quarter who helped fuel the comeback victory for his team. The Blazers certainly don't want to give up another 123 points like they did at home to New Orleans their last time out.

His team sit 19th in the table, with Chelsea and Arsenal their next opponents, but the Scot is refusing the repeat the overly pessimistic tone he struck at Sunderland.

It hasn't always been plain sailing for Pep Guardiola's side however, as on four occasions (Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Southampton, West Ham) they've had to come back from a goal down, and on four occasions they've relied on late goals to secure all three points (Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Southampton, West Ham).

"I really want the football to be attacking, but we are playing against a team that we can hardly get the ball so what are you going to do?"

Fernandes has played a bit-part role for West Ham thus far, but that is surely about to change, raising more questions over the long-term future of Noble at the London Stadium.

The teams they are beating late are cracking under City's quality.

"Then in the Community Shield, with two minutes to go we were going to penalties it was 2-2 against Manchester United at the time".

The Irons, who appeared more organised than they have done in recent matches, finally got the goal they deserved when Angelo Ogbonna headed home from an Aaron Cresswell cross and scored his first in the Premier League just before the break.
