City news

Pep Guardiola said Sunday’s Manchester derby will be aspecial game but that it is too early for the match to be ruled out of the biggest game of the season,

The Manchester City boss faces old rival Jose Mourinho, whose Manchester United side delayed them winning last season’s Premier League title with a surprise 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium in April.

Manchester City must wait to secure the Premier League title after Manchester United mounted a remarkable second-half derby fightback to come from two goals down to win at Etihad Stadium.

City needed victory to be confirmed as champions but Paul Pogba scored two goals in two minutes to overturn City’s first-half lead before Chris Smalling’s volley completed the dramatic turnaround.

Pep Guardiola’s side had delivered a first-half masterclass with captain Vincent Kompany scoring with a thumping header after 25 minutes and Ilkay Gudogan adding a second five minutes later after a clever turn and finish.

Outclassed United remained in contention after Raheem Sterling skied two golden chances over the bar with the goal at his mercy and Gundogan headed straight at keeper David de Gea when unmarked eight yards out.

SUNDAY

Arsenal could end the weekend three points off the top of the Premier League – and face an out-of-form Wolves side on Sunday.

Wolves started the season in superb form, but have since tailed off and lost their last three games, leading head coach Nuno Espirito Santo to demand his side react to their current slump.

There were reasons to be optimistic from their narrow 3-2 defeat to Tottenham last weekend, with Wolves coming from 3-0 down to almost claim a point against the title chasers, but Santo wants more from his side, who are competing in the Premier League for the first time since 2012 after winning the Championship last season.
