Burnley v Manchester City - story of the match

  • GK Hugo Lloris  7.9 rating

City are well on course to set a new record for a title-winning points margin - now held by Ferguson's United team in 1999/2000 that won the league by 18 points - and have left Mourinho confessing that his side is simply playing to be "first of the last" over the remainder of the season.

Pep Guardiola's team, leading from Danilo's first half goal, looked well in control but Sterling's blunder 20 minutes from time offered a lifeline and renewed belief to the home side.

Alexis Sanchez spent part of the January transfer window as the subject of a tug of war between Manchester United and Manchester City.

"It makes me feel they are doing so, so well that they are not letting others come close to them", he said.

"So, we pay respect to the victims and their families, and they will always be in our memories".

"This is a tough league with no easy games".

Capita shares plummet 40% on firm's 'lack of operational discipline'

"It doesn't matter, the most important thing to try to fight until the end to be champion".

That means Arsenal have to wait until the 1st March to play their next league game when they welcome City to the Emirates for what will be their second meeting in just four days.

We are sad and if you judge about the result... But at the same time numerous players in our team have been doing just that - scoring important goals, last minute goals.

With David Silva, Leroy Sane, Fabian Delph, Gabriel Jesus, Benjamin Mendy and John Stones all absent, Guardiola headed to Turf Moor with only a 17-man squad.

The runaway Premier League leaders are not in action again until Leicester City visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday - their longest gap between games since the November worldwide break - and Guardiola has chose to give his entire squad three days off. But it was not the key point for dropping two points.

Guardiola can say that all he likes, but we all know that Sterling's miss has directly cost City two points on this occasion.

Former City youth team player Mee had another half-chance minutes later but his header from a corner flashed just wide.

"Wednesday afternoon we have to prepare here, three training sessions for Leicester and Basel, but we need a little break, everybody - the players, the staff, the physios, everybody".
