Manchester City not 'invincible,' won't go season unbeaten - Ilkay Gundogan

Manchester City not 'invincible,' won't go season unbeaten - Ilkay Gundogan

Their latest stirring comeback came at Southampton on Saturday.

After 14 matches, the undefeated City have collected 38 points from 12 wins and two draws, five points more than second placed Liverpool, who play Everton at home on Sunday.

Mourinho joked recently that United's slow starts are causing his hair to turn white.

Gundogan said that Guardiola, who won the Treble during his time at Barcelona, knows what it takes to compete for every trophy. "Today we had a reason for the fragility". He also talked about the future of the City striker and said: "He will be so important".

Michael Obafemi fed Armstrong inside the area and from a tight angle the Scottish global smashed the ball confidently past De Gea for his third goal in two league games. "It's about that appetite, that fire that you have".

That sparked what is fast becoming a trademark recovery from United. Jamie Vardy scored his second penalty in two weeks after he was brought down by Ben Foster.

Sterling's growing reliability as a goalscorer proved invaluable to City as Jesus failed to take his chance in Aguero's absence. After all, Bournemouth just can't keep him down.

Sterling became the first player in Premier League history to net in his first six appearances against a particular club, when he registered in the 3-1 win over Cherries on Saturday. Among the goals in that streak was a victor seven minutes into injury time at Bournemouth in the third game of the last season.

This time past year, Pep Guardiola left City's record goalscorer on the bench for the Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

Bernado Silva had earlier given City the lead before Callum Wilson struck back on the stroke of half time with a powerful header.

Manchester City face Watford on Tuesday night and we're still none the wiser as to whether Sergio Aguero and Oleksandr Zinchenko will be available.

City have won the last eight head-to-head clashes between the pair.

"Now with VAR, we are looking to make better football, better decisions".

"I did it, against Southampton", said the City manager. "I needed to make an impact".

Watford's miserable afternoon was compounded in the closing stages when Etienne Capoue was given a straight red card after an apparent two-footed challenge on Kelechi Iheanacho.

However, since Jesus' underwhelming 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign and Aguero's recent resurgence with the league champions, he's been restricted to just three starts, yielding one league goal and despite being overlooked for most of the season, Jesus maintains he is a team player.
