He Has To Decide - Pep Guardiola Puts Ball In Brahim Diaz's Court

  • Manchester City made to suffer in nervy win over Watford says Pep Guardiola

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.

"I wasn't trying to take the mickey out of them that they have lost".

"We were made to feel those dangers in Champions League and FA Cup last season", he said.

"I'm always confident but always doubtful at the same time because we don't start well many times", Mourinho said.

"In the second half, the action from Raheem changed the game", he said.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Javier Gracia or Josep Guardiola? I didn't know that.

And one huge omission from the entire squad was striker Aguero, with Guardiola revealing he had a "muscular disruption".

Aguero is City's leading scorer this season, with 12 goals in all competitions.

But the leaders restored order in the 57th minute as Sterling continued his mastery of Eddie Howe's team.

Sterling became the first player in Premier League history to net in his first six appearances against a particular club, when he registered in the 3-1 win over Cherries on Saturday. But champions City were not to be denied and Ilkay Gundogan completed the 3-1 victory on 79 minutes.

Guardiola has not ruled De Bruyne, who has played just 81 minutes of league football this season due to two knee injuries, out of the weekend visit to Chelsea.

"We don't expect every 90 minutes to have an incredible performance".

The last time Newcastle had won a home Premier League game when trailing at halftime was in 2006, and the writing appeared to be on the wall again for them when Hernandez grabbed his second of the afternoon after 62 minutes.

Ben Foster did superbly to deny Mahrez and stop Bernardo Silva and David Silva from following up on the rebound, but Troy Deeney spurned Watford's best opening of the first half when he failed to beat Ederson's outstretched leg from eight yards out.

Elsewhere, Bournemouth moved above Manchester United, who host Arsenal on Wednesday, up to sixth courtesy of a 2-1 win over Huddersfield thanks to early goals from Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser to end a run of four straight defeats.

Maddison brought down a long ball forward, juggled the ball past his marker, and sent a low volley into the bottom corner from just inside the area for Leicester's second goal in a 2-0 win at King Power Stadium. The win lifted the team into seventh above Watford, for which Etienne Capoue was red-carded in the 90th.
