Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope was completely stranded, with Sterling left with the simple task of putting the ball in the back of the net, but the England global somehow put it beyond the post. Admittedly, they created plenty of presentable opportunities after Danilo's long-range opener, but were unusually sloppy at the vital moment.

We also heard from Neville, Henry and Heaton on Raheem Sterling's miss of the season contender, Ederson's superb performance and Paul Pogba after he was named on the substitute's bench for United's clash with Huddersfield.

He sank to his knees and pounded the turf after prodding Kyle Walker's low cross wide, and he did not have much time to make amends given he was substituted shortly afterwards.

"It is football", Guardiola said.

Pep Guardiola's side played in the International Champions Cup a year ago - with fixtures staged in Houston, Nashville and Los Angeles.

A handful of moves fell through, though - most notably Manchester City's late attempt to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City. They are injured so I would like to have 18 players.
