Guardiola: We won't be duped into complacency by Sunderland's league position

06 March 2017

Sunday's Premier League encounter between Sunderland and Manchester City is a game with big ramifications at both ends of the table.

Today they are visited by a Manchester City side in good form, at a ground where until 2014, City were the victims of FOUR back-to-back 1-0 defeats.

Yaya Toure concedes that Manchester City were made to suffer in their hard-fought 2-0 victory over a plucky Sunderland side at the Stadium of Light.

On the bench, the Citizens manager has Kevin De Bruyne if needed, while Nolito is an attacking option.

"The moment he's going to relax is going to be in another place, not on the pitch, because we want to help him".

"I thought the boys played and worked really hard to get something out of the game", reflected Moyes.

Which Premier League side has collected the most yellow cards this season? That is the way we've focussed on the on the last month or two months.

Guardiola's post-match interview can be heard in the podcast, as can the views of Souness and Redknapp, with the duo discussing the title race and whether Chelsea can be caught.

Aguero's deadlock-breaking effort - his fifth goal in as many games against the Wearsiders - ensured Sunderland were made to rue such profligacy in front of goal as the South American continues to fill the goal-scoring void left by the injury to Jesus.

"I think we're probably going to have to have to win one or two of these games in the run-in, so why not this one!" I can say that because I was the manager of the best player in history (Lionel Messi). "With this talent it would be a pity not to try to realise all this potential that he has".

City, who have moved to within eight points of league leaders Chelsea, were second-best in the first-half and they could have been behind had Jermain Defoe's effort struck the back of the net and not the post. I've said they should remain positive after and they are. Against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur we played well and we have to do that again.

The Spaniard added: "I know the players better than the Sunderland game, they know me better".
