Arsenal also leapt above Chelsea with a routine win over Huddersfield.

"That is what has delighted me to the most this season".

A win for the visitors would lift them into the top four above Chelsea, something which looked virtually impossible two months ago when the team was sliding towards mid-table mediocrity under Jose Mourinho. With Chelsea historically having proved a thorn in City's side, Sunday's clash will be by no means a walkover for the reigning champions.

"Somebody forgot to tell Mo Salah that he wasn't supposed to be so good again." .

It was the fourth successive match he had found the net against the Cherries - he has six goals in those four matches - becoming the first Liverpool player since Luis Suarez in 2013-14 to score 20 goals in all competitions in successive seasons.

"We try to control the players, he (De Bruyne) played the last two". On that note, Pep is desperate to get his charges in the right frame of mind.

While that might be overplaying it slightly, bearing in mind that the same teams meet in a real cup final in two weeks, there is no doubt that it comes at the end of a demanding and significant week. Whether it is me as manager, the players - who, like me, are fortunate to represent this club - or those of you in the stands, we all know that the greatest moments come when we all pull together. Elsewhere, Laporte filled in at left-back and may be asked to continue there should regular full-back Benjamin Mendy fail to recover from his knee injury in time.

Bernardo Silva has reiterated that he is happy at Manchester City and would like to extend his contract when the time comes for talks.

Guardiola also expressed his pride for the way City have responded to falling behind in the title race, with previous Champions having tended to struggle the following season. Defeats such as the 4-0 to Bournemouth late last month also suggests that they have an bad long way to go, still, and the Italian coach was quick to point that out in the aftermath. The Italian, however, is under no illusions as to the task facing them this Sunday.

Last Saturday Palace beat Fulham and Hodgson said: 'He actually made a mistake in the 94th minute and I was relieved because I was starting to think he might be a robot'. There will be goals in the game, but it will be another three points for United.

In a timely boost for the Blues, Antonio Rüdiger looks set to make his return from injury, with Andreas Christensen likely to make way. Meanwhile, club captain Vincent Kompany remains sidelined. Thirty-nine days later, City caught up with Liverpool's points tally and leapfrogged Jurgen Klopp's men on goal difference, although the challengers to the crown are now the team with a game to spare. We are used to have the ball possession and on Sunday it will be very hard, so maybe we have to defend lower.
