Guardiola hails performance of 'amazing talent' Aguero


Guy Mowbray: "With cup commitments for the rest of this month, a Manchester City win would mean they sign off from the Premier League until March with a minimum 13-point lead".

"We have to wait for Vincent [Kompany] to lift the titles otherwise we will only have good memories for ourselves".

RIYAD MAHREZ is on the Leicester bench for their clash against Manchester City after returning to training yesterday.

We have lost time and now it's important to look forwards.

"He fought, he played really good and he scored goals and it's so important, we needed it. I think everyone knows Riyad has the ability to play at the highest level, so I understand his disappointment, definitely". "He loves his relationship with his friends and team-mates", he added.

Leicester City needs to work out their situation with Mahrez.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

The success of the two Manchester clubs has been hugely impressive this season, and City and United now occupy the top two spots in the Premier League, with Pep Guardiola's side looking set to claim the title come the end of the season.

In the process he joined Harry Kane, Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer as the fourth player to score more than 20 goals in four successive Premier League seasons.

Being held by Burnley was certainly not in the script, coming after defeat to Liverpool and a goalless draw at Crystal Palace in their previous away outings, and City must also face Arsenal and Chelsea in quick succession in three weeks' time.

The league leaders are unbeaten in 25 league games at home since December 2016 (W20, D5). It's unclear whether or not he will be in contention, but if he is, then he'll certainly be looking to prove a point to Pep Guardiola.

The hosts have won their last 12 league games at Etihad Stadium.

On Friday afternoon, during Pep Guardiola's press conference ahead of their game against Leicester City at the weekend, the Spaniard once again mentioned Neville and took a dig at the former Manchester United defender. He has scored 10 goals in his past six appearances at the Etihad Stadium in all competitions.

Aguero wrapped up victory with two more in the 77th and 90th.

"In the Premier League game against them it was hard, the sending off after three minutes changed the game". When he concedes a goal he is quiet.
