Manchester City's 'Fergie time' boast

Manchester City restored their eight-point gap over Manchester United on Sunday thanks to David Silva's late victor against West Ham United.

The Spain playmaker, who scored the late victor in the Premier League leaders' victory over West Ham on Sunday, is being rested for the Group F game in Kharkiv.

Silva's effort secured City's 13th straight win in the Premier League, joining Arsenal (2001-02) and Chelsea (2016-17) for achieving the feat in a single season and they will match Arsenal's mark of 14 on the spin (set over two seasons) if they prevail at Old Trafford on Sunday.

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...

"We started really well but we lost our patience".


"I think at the end it was [an] expression, I'm pretty sure he does not want to get injuries out of players". We didn't have any rhythm because (West Ham goalkeeper) Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time (with the ball). It's a big victory. Kevin de Bruyne playing as the holding midfielder gave us the tempo.

"Against the top teams you've got to do it for 90 minutes, not 70 or 80 and we've got some other big games coming up". "We were very disciplined in defence and broke through to attack very effectively", Fonseca said.

City have threatened at a wobble in recent weeks, with late goals required to beat Huddersfield, Southampton and most recently West Ham in the league, as well as Feyenoord in the Champions League. "I don't think Manchester United will be all at the back because it's a good game, and just like us they also need the result".

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