Pep Guardiola has said he has been overwhelmed with Manchester City’s response to their Champions League exit as they moved back to the top of the Premier League table. Sergio Aguero’s second-half scrambled winner earned City a 1-0 victory at Burnley to move them back a point clear of Liverpool with just two games left for the rest of the season.

He told mobile slot machine Malaysia how the players have reacted with their mental strength after the problems they had and even without Kevin De Bruyne, without Fernandinho, without important players; they come and play the way they played.
So for now on, they must-have keep going with just two games left. With only one point difference between Manchester City and Liverpool, the competition is getting fierce. And it’s not easy for both The Sky Blues nor The Reds.
Sergio Aguero’s goal was awarded with the help of goalline technology, which showed the ball over the line by fewer than three centimeters. Pep Guardiola was relieved that the goal was awarded but also said his team should have a penalty when David SIlva’s shot struck Ashley Barnes on the arm. But with no video assistant referee, the decision wasn’t reviewed.
