Double injury blow for Burnley ahead of Manchester City game

Gary Neville has slammed Pep Guardiola's "joke decision" to only name six substitutes for Manchester City's Premier League clash with Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

Raheem Sterling suffers nightmare miss.

"It is football", said City boss Guardiola.

"You saw what happened today we played fantastic football and I don't have any regrets".

The Chile worldwide saw his penalty saved in the 68th minute but scored when the ball richocheted off goalkeeper Jonas Lossl. Who has been playing well, who has been working hard?'

"It was a odd kind of game, which you can have against these because they're so dominant with the ball, but I am very pleased to come through it with a point", he said.

Here are five talking points from a pulsating afternoon in Lancashire. Even youngster Lukas Nmecha, recently added to the first-team squad as cover, was unavailable.

"We have tough games left to play", Guardiola said. But we don't have to feel sad because our performance was good.

"Where are we going to get a better combination of players than we have?"

Guardiola confirmed that Stones, who was ill in midweek, was out with a minor knee injury. We've been beaten 3-0 and 4-1 by them in our two previous games.

"The way we played today, in the build-up, the patience, defending the long balls, second balls, just... we just missed chances to score more goals". Doing it in Burnley it is so complicated. We were warned for this kind of situation. "That is why I am optimistic". Or will Sean Dyche's Burnley side prove the pundits wrong again with a shock victory?

They hit the woodwork when Ederson tipped a fierce Aaron Lennon shot onto the bar. "We had to break down the Berlin wall organised so well by David Wagner", Mourinho said. "You don't play as well as we did without that".

"The game is important for us because we need points to be the first of the last, we have to try to finish second", Mourinho was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo. 19-year-old forward Lukas Nmecha has been training with first team, and didn't play in that second team game last night (a defeat to Swansea's under-23s). We have to change something.

"The quality was on show and it was a fantastic goal, so overall a unusual kind of game which you can have against these because they're so dominant with the ball so I'm very very pleased to come away with a point".
