City extended their lead to 16 points over second-placed rivals Manchester United, who were hosting Huddesfield Town later on Saturday.

It took some time to score the first goal and to open the game.

He also dismissed arguments that City's enormous lead in the Premier League was responsible for complacency that Burnley were able to exploit.

Otherwise, they have an excellent run of winnable games against Brighton [A], Watford [H], Leicester [A], Stoke [H], Southampton [H], Newcastle [A], West Ham [H], Burnley [H] and Huddersfield [A].

Sterling has been superb this season, and has largely put to bed the old discussions about his shortcomings as a finisher, but this was a stunning miss, the sort you'd worry might haunt a player if his team weren't so far ahead of everyone else in the title race.

Sterling was then hauled minutes later for the young Braham Diaz, but speaking after the game, Guardiola insisted that had nothing to do with the miss.

The rest of the top five mimic the Premier League table with Liverpool next on nine, followed by Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur following both on eight.

Although they had lost their last three home games, all to top six sides, Burnley have been excellent against those sides overall this season.

When so much focus was on Mkhitaryan and $80 million record signing Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsey chose the wrong day to score his first-ever hat trick.

"Then we played some good stuff, the quality was on show and it was a fantastic goal". They were the more dominating side in the last 15 minutes of the game and that paid off for the hosts as Gudmundsson found the back of the net in the 82 minute.

"We had to be patient but had to keep the intensity high and the pressure", Mourinho said.

The tour, presented by Visit Abu Dhabi, was revealed by Man City left-back Benjamin Mendy during a surprise visit to the Rockefeller Center on Friday. "Tomorrow we have another chance". Shorn of important players such as Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane, John Stones and David Silva, Guardiola had to name a largely inexperienced bench featuring the likes of Tosin Adarabioyo, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Brahim Diaz, alongside Claudio Bravo, Yaya Toure and new signing Aymeric Laporte. "It was a tough, tough period in winter time, we have this chance [to rest] for three or four days and we give it to them".
