Winning title against Man United not a motivation for Pep's City
14 March, 2018, 06:16 | Author: Christina Hansen
The runaway league leaders moved one step closer to clinching the 2017/18 title with a comprehensive 2-0 defeat of Stoke City on Monday night where David Silva scored both goals. Sterling's fine run down the Stoke left went untracked and it was a lovely cut-back that picked out Silva, with the ball so perfectly weighted that the Spaniard never had to break his stride.
Walker shot wide for the visitors while a Sane effort was well saved by Butland, before a controversial moment in the 80th minute when Sterling dispossessed Ndiaye from a drop ball which Stoke thought they would be allowed to play after the game was stopped for injuries. They had just one chance, so three points more.

There'll be bigger tests to come this season, be that domestically or in Europe, which is why City's in game management is important.
Pep Guardiola's City, who prevailed 7-2 when the two teams met at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the season, were unable to convert a number of chances on Monday.
A man who knows a thing or two about lifting titles and hating United, Vincent Kompany has described the opportunity to win it in the Manchester derby as a "once in a lifetime opportunity" and it would certainly confirm the power-shift that has swung from red to blue in the City.
City headed out to Abu Dhabi immediately after the victory over Stoke for a warm weather training and Kompany insists they will be working hard on their break to ensure they are ready to secure the title and for their Champions League quarterfinal.
We look at the Twitter reaction to Silva's performance as City took another step closer to the Premier League title.
"There are always goals to pursue, statistics to overcome, and we will carry on and then work towards next season".
"They are going to find it more hard".
