Manchester City finally start to show the strain

The Citizens were in control for the early stages of the contest and took the lead through an unlikely suspect in Danilo. His attempt sailed into the upper right corner, beating a diving Pope.

The Premier League leaders dominated for much of Saturday's contest and led through Danilo's rocket, but Raheem Sterling missed a pair of presentable chances before Johann Gudmundsson popped up with a late equaliser.

Gary Neville slams Pep Guardiola's "joke decision" to only name six substitutes for Manchester City's Premier League clash with Burnley.

Meanwhile, second-placed United have averaged 2.12 points per game and are on course to get 81 points overall.

"But I want to believe that by Champions League time, around the end of the month, they will be back". In their last five they have managed to remain unbeaten, winning two games and drawing the other three.

Speaking at his own press conference to preview today's trip to Burnley, Guardiola said: "There are 13 games, 39 points to play (for)".

"The next day he is going to score".

McMaster confirmed in the phone conversation that the USA would not give weapons to the YPG militia, the statement said. The Kurds in Afrin were not involved in fighting IS and have not received American help, United States officials say.

The Citizens were then brought back down to earth with their first defeat of the season, losing 4-3 to Liverpool at Anfield.

The Premier League leaders host Leicester City at 12:30 a.m. February 10 at Etihad Stadium.

"I think it is important to come to a ground like this and get points, we know how hard it is". The visitors have also been prolific on their travels, scoring two or more goals in 12 of their last 15 away games.

The result was not too damaging, with City still sitting on a huge lead, but as they challenge in four competitions, some rest this week is welcome.

They rode their luck at times, and perhaps Manchester City became complacent in the second half, but they battled hard and executed their game plan perfectly, growing into the game in the second half and deserving a draw in the end.

With David Silva, Leroy Sane, Fabian Delph, Gabriel Jesus, Benjamin Mendy and John Stones all absent, Guardiola headed to Turf Moor with only a 17-man squad.

"Then we must try to start next season in a good way, like we did this season, but try to be consistent and try not to lose points like we did this season in some matches where we shouldn't", said the former Chelsea manager. We play every game to give sense to what we are doing.
