English Premier League Report: Sunderland v Manchester City 05 March 2017

Pep Guardiola has again ruled out a late title charge to catch Premier League leaders Chelsea, despite Manchester City making it four Premier League victories on the trot. Jan Kirchhoff and Steven Pienaar are unlikely to play as well as they are unfit, while Jack Rodwell is still suffering from a hamstring problem. We are in a good moment now but we have to repeat it in every single game again and again.

The Germany winger has scored six times in his last 10 games after initially struggling to make an impact following his £37 million move from Schalke.

"I think we're probably going to have to have to win one or two of these games in the run-in, so why not this one!"

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

Adnan Januzaj also glanced a header wide of the far post as Sunderland continued to perform admirably, but City were able to gradually play out time in order to keep hold of their lead heading into the closing stages.

Sixers' Joel Embiid out indefinitely with knee soreness, swelling
Embiid has only played one game since January 20 and has missed 13 straight games in Philadelphia. Embiid is now out indefinitely with swelling in his knee, and will have an MRI on Monday.

As for David Moyes' side, they have been struggling all season and have won just once in their last 11 games in all competitions and now languish in the relegation zone. Tottenham, who have played a game more, are second with 56 points. The first months were very hard for him, but it is not easy for a young player in England to come here and play the way he's playing. They were terrific with what they tried to give.

"We have to do what we did in the past few years, which is get out of where we are". At Everton we hit the bar.

'I'm not thinking too much about the big targets or objectives, it is just about winning the next game. We know it will be tough. That's when I stay calm and get my experience out of my performances. This was one of the tough fixtures.

"It doesn't matter the position they are, I know in that position they will be more physical and pay more attention due to their situation". Manchester City looked in a different league to Sunderland, and in all probability come the end of May, they will be.
