City pip Chelsea 1:0

There may be yet more records to fall before the end of the season, with this Manchester City team undoubtedly set to go down as one of the greatest to ever grace the Premier League.

"We tried to have patience".

Antonio Conte has admitted that he has been impressed by Ross Barkley's attitude and determination since signing for Chelsea FC in the January transfer window.

Records are being broken by this City team and more are likely to fall before the season is done, but the ease of their procession to the championship may ultimately cost them when it comes to challenging for the biggest prize of all - the UEFA Champions League.

"I was critical of Newcastle before Christmas because I thought in the first half hour of that game, the intent was really poor".

It really is. In terms of a Premier League game it's unacceptable.

Apple is reportedly working on headphones to rival its own Beats
On the contrary, the headphones are expected to follow the footsteps of AirPod and will feature a similar set of features as well. Apple purchased Beats for $3 billion in 2014 , and Beats has been Apple's main headphone brand until the introduction of AirPods.

The half was noteworthy for City players' darting and energetic runs into space; they are gifted footballers but also put in a shift as is demanded by taskmaster Guardiola.

"When you match quality and mentality, I think you become unstoppable". It just is not right.

I think it is a outcome of the way we play. "If you give City space behind us the game can finish not 1-0".

City dispatched reigning-champions Chelsea at the Etihad with Bernardo Silva's 46-minute strike extending the gap to second-place Liverpool to 18 points. I was looking forward to watching this game today.

"But I'm not so stupid to play open and lose 3-0 or 4-0".

In driving rain, and with Chelsea mysteriously refusing to take off the handbrake, they were able to close out a victory that will, in its own way, have brought as much pleasure to Guardiola as numerous more spectacular wins this season. "Who could believe?" he said. I think if you ask the players, the players neither.

The interview also came after Putin had boasted about a new Russian weapon that could evade a US-built missile defence system. No one listened to us then. "We can not respond to that if they don't violate Russian laws ", Putin told NBC's Megyn Kelly .

The Portugal midfielder backed up his goal in the 3-0 win over Arsenal on Thursday with the victor against Chelsea.

Instead, we opted to sit off and invite pressure, which Man City were not in any hurry to provide.

The Londoners defended deep and in numbers from the outset but, missing the tenacity of the absent N'Golo Kante showed little willingness to press in midfield and the result was a first half dominated by City possession but with few openings.

Pep Guardiola's Man City have not faced many teams willing to go toe to toe with them this season. Moses had a high, wide and not so handsome shot which in truth summed up the Londoners' tepid day.

Conte fielded a front three of Pedro Rodriguez and Willian behind lone striker Eden Hazard, but the trio barely saw the ball. It was a second straight loss in Manchester for Chelsea, having been defeated 2-1 by Man United last weekend.

"We created enough to win the game, score more goals".

Rafa Benitez issues trophy warning to Liverpool
Liverpool will be looking for a win to go second in the table when they welcome Newcastle United to Anfield this evening. Jurgen Klopp's men were frustrated by Newcastle until Salah broke the deadlock with his 32nd of the season.

"Since we were together here with Sergio, the last month and a half, two months, is the best Sergio I have seen".
