Burnley contested the decision to award City a penalty, awarded for a challenge on Bernardo Silva by visiting goalkeeper Nick Pope, but Guardiola felt it was the right call.

"There is contact. I don't know how the ref sees it because it is that instant, it's minimal and to get that high off the floor with your arms above your head is nearly a skill in itself".

Pep Guardiola and Sean Dyche had differing views on the penalty that set Manchester City on the way to their 3-0 win over Burnley.

Aguero was playing his first match since breaking a rib in a auto crash in Amsterdam three weeks ago. When he breaks it, it will be something special. "It's a penalty", he said.

"It's so important for him to be the top scorer in all the history with the club".

Ophelia continues to spin in the open Atlantic Ocean, posing no threat to the United States or any other part of North America. Hurricane Ophelia may make landfall in Ireland on Monday. "I thought that storm was dead and buried in the central Atlantic".

Pope dived to his left to save well from Kevin De Bruyne, who had been played through by David Silva's sublime pass, but as the ball ran loose, the goalkeeper was judged to have clipped Bernardo Silva, who fell to the ground. "We are happy to be in this moment with him". That's out of the window because it's not there.

"For the moment I think so, but everybody's still there", the Belgium global told ESPN FC.

"In that respect, I think that Chelsea and Manchester United have a little bit of an edge".

Both Manchester clubs remain unbeaten in the league with City atop the standings on 22 points and United two points behind after eight league games, followed by Tottenham Hotspur and Watford in third and fourth respectively.

The Citizens now sit top of the standings with a two point lead over neighbours United, five points more than third-placed Spurs and a huge nine-point lead over Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.
