Manchester City's 'incredible desire' reminds Guardiola of Barcelona teams

Manchester City's 'incredible desire' reminds Guardiola of Barcelona teams

Aguero had a simple task to make it 3-0 six minutes later when he pounced on Ross Barkley's slack header towards his own goal. "We need only to understand the reason why at the moment it is isn't working".

The power play was warmly greeted by most right-minded fans on social media as an expert example of the football rustle.

"It was not easy because Chelsea demanded a lot and we defended deeper, like never before, because they have the quality to find spaces". I am anxious about my team and the performance, but my job?

In the past week City have beaten Arsenal at home and Everton away before taking Maurizio Sarri's side to pieces with four goals in the opening 25 minutes.

"I want to study, I want to understand".

Pep Guardiola insists pressure does not exist as Manchester City bounced back with three vital wins in eight games, rounding off with a 6-0 thrashing of Chelsea.

Pochettino's side took the lead through Davinson Sanchez's first goal for the club, but they were indebted to Hugo Lloris for saving Jamie Vardy's spot-kick after the interval at Wembley.

Eden Hazard closer to Real Madrid move after ‘decision’ taken on future
Real Madrid are ready to use Spanish global winger Marco Asensio as bait to help land Eden Hazard during the summer, according to the Daily Mail .

"I didn't see my football [against City]".

Given the fortunes of his predecessors, the odds are against Sarri being given time to see his vision of utopia at Chelsea, though he does have the chance to avenge this defeat against City in the Carabao Cup final in two weeks' time (Feb. 24, 11:30 a.m. ET; ESPN+).

Raheem Sterling struck in the fourth minute and Ilkay Gundogan rapidly made it four after Aguero's first-half double, with Chelsea unable to muster any response in the face of City's incredible intensity.

City have now scored 33 goals in their last five home games in all competitions and have a chance of lifting their first silverware of the season when they face Chelsea again at Wembley in the League Cup final on February 24.

Pep Guardiola's side returned to the top of the table in style yesterday as they swept Chelsea aside in a stunning 6-0 win. His team was flying high in the league and looked like a lock for the top four, but recent results have been concerning.

Sunday proved to be a good day for both Manchester clubs, then, but City were not out to do United any favours.

Just as Leicester pressed for an equalizer, Son Heung-min scored a breakaway goal, racing clear from the halfway line and converting his 15th of the campaign in the first minute of stoppage time.
