  • What City are saying: Guardiola warns stars that Liverpool & Spurs couldn't win at Sunderland

City's top scorer was denied a late second goal by keeper Jordan Pickford after Leroy Sane put the result beyond doubt by doubling his side's advantage just before the hour when the German midfielder rounded-off a counter-attack to score for the third consecutive game.

North London club Tottenham have not been crowned champions of England since their celebrated "Double" season of 1960/61, when they also lifted the FA Cup.

"But that's true. We are there behind, of course, Chelsea because they are nearly unstoppable". Barely had they been asked a question by the hosts in the entire 90 minutes, but that all changed when the Spaniard strode on to the pitch to engage in some robust post-game debriefs.

They ran out knowing they were deep in trouble after wins for Crystal Palace, Swansea and Leicester on Saturday had left them six points adrift of safety with 12 games to go.

But Sunderland, who have taken maximum points from just one of their last 10 league fixtures, remain rooted to the foot of the table, although manager David Moyes may take a crumb of comfort from the fact that they more than matched City until the opening goal.

"Manchester City keep you under that much pressure that when you do get it you have to be fearless enough to play".

"With the quality players we have we started to move the ball about".

Guardiola added: "People can believe these games are easy to play, but we didn't fall into that trap". If they keep doing that we'll have a great chance.

"We are so happy", City manager Pep Guardiola told the BBC.

- Kenny1312: I'm going up on Sunday and as I've never seen us win in my 4 previous visits to Sunderland you can blame my presence there if we drop points.

"We're in a good moment". I don't think you can fault the players for any of that.

Goalkeeper Vito Mannone has recovered from illness and Billy Jones is available after having stitches in a head wound, but Jack Rodwell (hamstring) is being assessed and the game will come too soon for midfielders Jan Kirchhoff (knee) and Steven Pienaar (calf). I am fairly sure that he was bought by Sunderland either this season or last which means he will be able to play against us.

"We hit the bar against Everton, it bounced out and it didn't bounce for anybody, it span away".
