Manchester City heap more misery on Sunderland to go third in EPL

Doyle BarkerMar 06, 2017

The win left Pep Guardiola's side a point behind second-placed Tottenham Hotspur and eight adrift of leaders Chelsea.

"Winning these kind of games is the most hard kind", Guardiola insisted, although it was hard to concur as goals in either half from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane left the hosts rooted to the bottom of the table, six points adrift of safety.

While City's defence is setting club records away from home, the unit hasn't been as strong at the Etihad Stadium, conceding but avoiding defeat in their last six home matches. (You have) to accept you have to win every single game when (we know) that isn't going to happen.

Sunderland were dealt a blow after 69 minutes as Darren Gibson picked up and was replaced by former City midfielder, Jack Rodwell.

Which Premier League side has collected the most yellow cards this season?

"Our players gave everything they could but when we got the ball back which we did quite a bit, we at times lacked the quality to make opportunities or build the play". Today another one and he had more chances and he helped us a lot in our game and our build-up. Not everyone can play pressure games, but I know when the pressure is on, I perform to my best.

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. "We are there behind Chelsea, who are nearly unstoppable, but we are there for the rest of the teams".

After receiving the ball from David Silva, Raheem Sterling crossed for Aguero and he made no mistake at the near post after getting ahead of Lamina Kone.

"We played well in the first game against them this season (when Sunderland lost 2-1 on the opening weekend of the season), and we have to do the same again". Control is one thing but we forgot to attack. At Everton we hit the bar.

"It doesn't matter the position they are, I know in that position they will be more physical and pay more attention due to their situation".
