Guardiola talks up City's chances

The England worldwide still has two and a half years left to run on his current contract, but according to The Sun, City will open talks on a £300,000-a-week deal, which would see him become the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

Presuming from the body language used, that Pep was unhappy with Redmond for some reason, begged the question for fans, what could he be so annoyed about having just snatched a last-gasp win to maintain an incredible run of momentum which sees City sitting comfortably on top of the league? Guardiola said: "I have played against millions of managers and the different ways they play. I said to Nathan you are a good player and you have to attack". We didn't win clearly because it's so complicated when 10 players defend in the box.

Guardiola, who walked onto the pitch and remonstrated with the Saints winger, has been asked to explain his actions by the Football Association. I think it's ridiculous. We try to do our best, all the staff, to understand.

"I just wanted them to play". We have done it so far and if at the end of the season we have done it consistently then I will be happy about it.

Manchester City are ready to smash the £300,000-a-week barrier to make Raheem Sterling the Premier League's top-paid player. "We have to more than double the points to be champions".

Guardiola has enjoyed a glittering coaching career to date, collecting numerous major honours during spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

City are on a club record 19-game winning streak but victories have been harder to come by in recent weeks with oppositions setting up more defensively.

"Sometimes when you're playing games you have to manage these emotional moments, even when you've got a good result or a bad result".
