Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gündogan told to show some loyalty

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gündogan told to show some loyalty

"The manager told us to be a bit more aggressive, we sat off them a little in the first half".

A healthy competition between the two stems from the undeniable quality of both sides, but Guardiola's comments after City's 3-1 win over Watford on Saturday may have been meant to shift the scales-by playing down his side's expectations. "Of course I thought they were the favourites but there still remains incredible clubs to beat".

"Raheem can do better", Guardiola added.

"We started a competition with nine games-it's not a competition with 38, it was a competition with nine games and we played the first one", he said of the run-in.

Striker Sergio Aguero has scored in each of his past three Champions League games (three goals total) and is looking to score in four in a row in the competition for the first time.

Pep Guardiola was sorry if Manchester City were given a helping hand on their way to a 3-1 victory over Watford, but insisted his side were well worthy of the win that opened up a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

"At the beginning of the season, Manchester City voted to install the VAR from this season and some other clubs didn't accept that". I am 28 years old so my next contract will maybe decide where I will be for the end of my career.

Guardiola has urged Gundogan to pen a new contract - or face the prospect of having to leave the Etihad. "We have to dream and point as high as possible", he said. I don't like this situation but it is what it is. It's not obvious, you have to make their own decision and I try to play as well as possible.

"My main target at the moment is to go for all competitions and be successful".

The win moved Premier League leaders City four points clear of Liverpool ahead of their home game against Burnley on Sunday - a match Juergen Klopp's side can ill-afford not to win.

It's as you were in the title race as both Manchester City and Liverpool eventually ran out comfortable winners over the weekend, meaning the Citizens maintain their one-point lead at the top of the table.

"It is so complicated, there are no spaces - just the talent of the players that we have".

Manchester United and Arsenal could not have had more contrasting fortunes in France in midweek as United upset Paris Saint-Germain to reach the Champions League quarter-finals while the Gunners lost 3-1 at Rennes in the Europa League.

City are in a strong position after staging a late comeback to win a dramatic match 3-2 in Germany.

Cardiff, though, gave themselves hope as early goals in each half from Junior Hoilett and Victor Camarasa gave the Welsh side a precious three points over a hugely disappointing West Ham.
