But in one week we lost three games, that happened.

"He made a huge effort, because after the action from Ashley Young against United he had problems in his knee". He could not train.

"He played the last 20 minutes (against Liverpool) and after the game said: "I can not run, I have a lot of pain, I can not run".

Tottenham fans will surely be delighted to hear the news that the Argentine will not be fit for tomorrow's game.

The Etihad outfit are guaranteed the Premier League crown if they win three of their remaining league game this term. "That has happened. We have to try to focus on our games". It was two up in the game before Paul Pogba inspired a United comeback, scoring twice in the second half of its 3-2 win.

He said: "Tottenham is a fantastic team, they have great pressure".

After the wobble, which saw City fail to secure the league title against United and get knocked out of the Champions League to Liverpool, Guardiola believes his side can get the job done soon.

Mattis says: 'I believe there was a chemical attack in Syria'
Recently, the Russian ambassador to Lebanon has vowed that Russia will shoot down any USA cruise missiles launched at Syria. Mattis was referring to worldwide investigating teams from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

Guardiola claimed he has only 14 outfield players available, though he only named a few of those out.

A side containing Ronaldo, Raul, Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and David Beckham looked on course for a treble of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey going into March.

Manchester City will again be without striker Sergio Aguero for their trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, which Pep Guardiola said is now the most important game of the season.

"We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team like Manchester City is doing today".

The rivals have already faced off on two occasions this season, and they were feisty affairs as crowd trouble marred the league game at the AMEX Stadium before Brighton sent Palace out of the FA Cup. So if we lose, we're going to do it in a similar way to the way we played against United and Liverpool. As soon as we win the first one, the second one will be easier. The Reds have been handed a last-four tie with Serie A club Roma, who shocked the football world by overturning a 3-1 first leg defeat to send Leo Messi and Barcelona packing.

"I thought he went too strong against Everton before the Liverpool game".
