Sterling sparkles as City stretch lead

Guardiola speaks out on UEFA's FFP probe into Manchester City Guardiola speaks out on UEFA's FFP probe into Manchester City

Over the years the Premier League has produced players who have turned into superstars, giants who have turned into legends and magicians have who turned into maestros.

It is unclear whether Sterling will be rejoined in City's attack by Sergio Aguero at Vicarage Road after the striker sat out the Bournemouth win with a muscular problem.

And in his first full season, the highly-rated forward scored 17 goals in 42 games across all competitions as Pep found a rotational policy with Aguero that worked with aplomb as they romped to the Premier League title.

City remain top of the league heading into the midweek fixtures, but Liverpool's incredible late victor against Everton in Sunday's Merseyside derby means the gap is still just two points.

"The doctors told me [on Friday] Sergio can not play", Guardiola said.

Bournemouth had strong claims for a penalty turned down after Fernandinho appeared to push Tyrone Mings in the area, but Gundogan doubled City's lead in the 79th minute, coolly finishing from David Silva's low cross.

"A good win, after the Champions League it is always tough".

Pickford's incredible 96th-minute howler gifts Liverpool Merseyside derby victory
That's a positive but what can I do? You can't do that at any time in a Merseyside derby. Pickford, though, had recovered his composure before leaving the stadium.

"In the first half Raheem was not involved and in the second half he changed the game". I know when I did it I was not happy to have done it.

He nearly scored a remarkable individual goal minutes before he did find the net, producing a mazy run past five opponents before seeing his shot deflect off Andrew Surman against the post.

Roy Hodgson's team finally ended their drought from open play in weird fashion when James McArthur's 16th minute cross was missed by players from both teams, hit the far post and trickled into the net.

But Guardiola insists his star can not rest on his laurels and warned Premier League rivals that there is far more to come from the 23-year-old. Huddersfield took the lead after 55 seconds, with Mathias Jorgensen heading in from a sliced Bruno clearance.

Southampton had won only once in 13 league matches this season, that solitary success coming at Crystal Palace on September 1, yet within 12 minutes they had carved open the United defence.

At Selhurst Park, Palace ended their eight-game winless league run at the expense of fellow strugglers Burnley.

However, the hosts were reduced to 10 men after half an hour when Steve Mounie was sent off for a high challenge and Brighton took full advantage with goals by Shane Duffy and Florin Andone.
