Manchester City extend lead, Manchester United slow down

Brighton conceded the fastest goal in the Premier League this season after 54 seconds, but Chris Hughton's team recovered to win 2-1 at 10-man Huddersfield.

"Raheem, for example, in the first half was not involved".

He nearly scored a remarkable individual goal minutes before he did find the net, producing a mazy run past five opponents before seeing his shot deflect off Andrew Surman against the post. Pep has made six changes from the side that beat Bournemouth at the weekend!

He has been talking to City about an extension for a number of months and Guardiola said the "last information" he had was talks were "going well".

Raheem Sterling changed the game and Leroy Sane was fantastic too. Always I said to him - when you work like he works on the pitch, always we will sustain him. Maybe in the future, it is going to help us to do what we're trying to do.

"We haven't been outplayed for many moments of the game. It's just the key moments where we haven't been clinical". "We haven't done enough defensively and weren't clinical enough in attack".

David Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and Sergio Aguero scored for Guardiola's side whereas Anthony Martial was the only goalscorer in Manchester United's ranks.

Bernardo Silva has warned Manchester City's rivals that the Premier League champions are even better than they were last season and are eyeing more records.

City's all-time top scorer appears unlikely to make the trip to Vicarage Road on Tuesday or Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

But Bournemouth have never lost on the road to the reigning Premier League champions, beating Chelsea twice at Stamford Bridge and drawing with Leicester at the King Power Stadium. I don't know what he ate but it will be on the menu for the next games! I think we have just two less points than this time past year, and what we have done is quite similar, but the contenders are much better.

"He is so aggressive with the ball and so focused on the goal". "I think he was incredible last season, he played a lot of games because we had just one left winger, and he had an incredible season, but we'll see". We want him to stay, we want to extend his contract for four or five years and we'll do absolutely everything to keep him here but as I said before it's in his hands. "We didn't finish (this round) but we played today and tomorrow both or one of Arsenal and Tottenham will drop points".

The first point is debatable enough with Manchester City once again threatening to run away with the title, but the idea that the "lower 14" are only out to survive has also been debunked by a small handful of clubs, including Watford this season.
