Man City held at Burnley after late Gudmundsson equalizer

Man City held at Burnley after late Gudmundsson equalizer

That gap has been reduced from 15 points thanks to Burnley's late equaliser. According to Opta, the only player to have scored more goals all from inside the box is former Everton man Tim Cahill (56).

Just as they were in Ronald Koeman's last game as manager, Everton were once again humbled by Arsenal in the Premier League as they were on the wrong end of a 5-1 defeat. Since his debut in 2008, no player has made more. "I'm going away, it doesn't matter where!" he joked. Guardiola is now giving his whole squad time off until Wednesday with their next match against Leicester not until Saturday. United were even able to fit in a warm weather winter break to Dubai when they took advantage of a 10-day gap in their fixture schedule. Although the Clarets have not won in nine league games, they are well on the way to a top half finish.

The trip to Arsenal has already been moved to the first Thursday in March to accommodate the Carabao Cup final between the two sides.

The City manager said he did not have any other players available as City's youngsters were in Premier League 2 action on Friday night, losing 1-0 at home to Swansea.

"We decided not to bring someone onto the bench who played last night because they wouldn't have played". This game was the fifth time they took something from one of the Premier League's bigger sides and nothing changed about their approach.

Burnley are seventh in the standings, well above expectations for a team with one of the smallest budgets in the league, and they stuck at the task despite City outplaying them for large stretches of the game.

It would give Guardiola an opportunity to concentrate on their Champions League challenge, but their gruelling schedule so far would appear to make it a tough ask to compete with Bayern Munich, who had a three-week winter break or Paris St-Germain and Juventus, who each had a fortnight free.

Guardiola's side have left the rest of the division in their wake this term, but Kompany was clear that they are not taking anyone lightly.
