  • Man City's Pep Guardiola defends himself against Gary Neville criticism

It was the flawless way for City to sign off from Premier League action for the month, with Pep Guardiola's side having Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup commitments in the next fortnight.

Strolling their way to the Premier League title this season, Manchester City stand as one of the most exciting teams in Europe at the moment.

Kane's match-winning display contained all the ingredients you would demand from a modern-day centre-forward, with his pinpoint header taking his tally for the season to a remarkable 32 in all competitions. The Swans had been cut adrift in the Premier League, but the Portuguese, who has won six, drawn four and lost only one match in his 11 games in charge, has guided them to 16th.

It means Pep Guardiola's side can now win the title at the Etihad against Jose Mourinho's team in their meeting on April 7.

Once more the imperial De Bruyne was the creator, delivering another sumptuous pass into the box which left the defence and goalkeeper helpless as Aguero tapped it in at the back post. You have to be there in the latter stages.

Kevin De Bruyne's contribution in the thrashing of Leicester merited as much praise. What I know is we missed a challenge in the air and missed the second ball.

"Champions League is how you control the bad moments and the emotions".

Pep Guardiola believes Kevin De Bruyne could challenge Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for this year's Ballon d'Or - but only if he helps Manchester City to major honours.

"If the 10 minutes that happened at Anfield happen in the Champions League we are out".

"It is what it is, but we are playing in the right way".

'It shows the gulf in class between Man City and the rest of the league'.

"I also do not exclude Real Madrid in terms of quality and experience, even though they have not yet achieved the expected results".

Asked if he was hurt by Neville's criticism, Guardiola joked: "A lot!"

"But he is always focused and you know, sooner or later, he can score".

The system at City does not have room for a support striker but Guardiola might turn him into a CF, which will not only add goals to his game but will make him a more effective player.
