  • Pep Guardiola anxious for next week's Premier League derby clash

I am so pleased to see them playing that well.

Victory over Shakhtar will open the door for Napoli to move ahead of the Ukrainians and into the last-16, while if Shakhtar beat City they will qualify for the knockout round and send Napoli into the Europa League. As half-time approached a 20-yard drive from David Silva had been the only real cause of alarm; the minutes were drifting by and any onlookers watching play bereft of context could have been forgiven for finding it all a touch stodgy.

It was the fourth successive game in which City have scored in the final ten minutes, leading to comparisons between Guardiola's side and Ferguson's United teams, who... It's how the phrase "Fergie Time" was spawned. "I was not here in that period, but of course you have to have that". "It showed what we are".

"I was very close to leaving, but now I am here and I am enjoying the little time I've had on the pitch to prove myself, and after the worldwide break we will see if I can get more". It was very important to close up some particular zones for Manchester City where they are usually very risky.

The record is shared by Chelsea (2015/16 season) and Arsenal (2001/02 season) and City are now just a victory away from becoming the undisputed winning-streak kings. The next milestone is 14 straight wins, which was achieved by Arsenal in 2002 but across two seasons.

The fact City are no longer beating teams by four or five and are instead relying on late goals is not a sign their form is dipping. "You see how they run and how they fight, that's why we are so proud again". It was massive. They played 10 players inside the box, it was nearly impossible.

However, having conceded another goal from a set-piece against West Ham, Guardiola expects another aerial bombardment from United next week.

Silva converted Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant pass from close range in the 83rd minute as City maintained their blistering form this season.

West Ham United boss David Moyes has not started Diafra Sakho since taking charge at the London Stadium.

He told the club website: "I know that all of you have your mind on Sunday's derby, but before that we have to play the last group stage game in the Champions League, and it's a very important one".

Charlie Austin underlined his reputation as one of the Premier League's most clinical finishers by grabbing Southampton's equalizer.

"[For] part of the season he was top", he added.

Guardiola has managed to completely turn around an nearly disastrous campaign of last season towards a road to Premier League glory.

Bournemouth and Southampton drew 1-1 in the South Coast derby.
