Mou: United must be better next season

Josep Guardiola, Manager of Manchester City gives his team instructions during the Premier League match between Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion at Etihad Stadium on January 31, 2018 in Manchester, England.

The result left his side with a commanding 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League but Guardiola was unhappy with a series of challenges, the worst of which saw Matt Phillips booked for a high-flying lunge at young City substitute Brahim Diaz.

Ahead of Man City's game against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Premier League HD, Guardiola was asked if he would concede the title in Mourinho's position. For example, tomorrow. You can not deny and everyone knows here in England how complicated it is playing at Burnley.

Jose Mourinho has said Manchester United will have to "improve a lot" if they are to wrest the title back from Manchester City next season.

Mourinho added: "City are doing so well". We were first for a few weeks and then we were always second, I don't remember us being fourth, fifth or sixth.

They also now boast the best defence, conceding just 18 times thus far, with their displays at both ends of the field not boding well for Burnley, a team who have won only once in their last 18 meetings. We are in these positions all season.

John Stones could be recalled after recovering from illness, but Guardiola will be without Leroy Sane, Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus.

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.

Unlike the rest of the Premier League, Manchester United has been very selective in the number of partners it has from the gambling industry, limiting itself to a single commercial deal at any one time and only then restricting visibility to digital channels and perimeter board advertising.

"They can travel, they can do whatever they want", the City boss insisted. It's four months now.

"I think tomorrow is an unbelievable day to show respect and the passion for the club".

"Maybe we have to postpone games, it doesn't matter".

"We need to not see each other".

The City manager does not, however, expect his players to allow complacency to get the better of them, simply stating: "That's not going to happen".

"In the second-half I chose to make a change and bring (Marouane) Fellaini with different qualities than him, to try to be stronger in midfield with Fellaini and (Nemanja) Matic because I wanted Alexis to play as a second striker with (Romelu) Lukaku".
