Sunderland v Manchester City: Confirmed lineups - De Bruyne dropped

In-form Sergio Aguero swelled his goal tally for the season by netting his fifth in three matches in the opening period as Leroy Sane settled matters shortly before the hour mark.

"That looks like being a really big month for us." said Moyes, who saw Jones waste two presentable headed chances at the end of the first-half.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted the gap to Premier League leaders Chelsea is all but insurmountable after seeing his side scrap their way to victory at Sunderland.

Today they are visited by a Manchester City side in good form, at a ground where until 2014, City were the victims of FOUR back-to-back 1-0 defeats.

"We are honest and I said to him from the beginning to him when I came, everything was good and when Gabriel came here I gave him continuity".

- Domalino: They've conceded 6 in their last 2 games, We've scored 10 in our last 2.

"I don't think you can fault the players for any of that. We were lucky to get to half time 1-0 and after that we controlled the game".

The Prime Minister also claimed that it is " very clear " the Scottish people don't want an independence referendum. She also cited one example that concerns Scotland.

City have six wins and a draw in their last seven games and could move into second place with a victory.

After receiving the ball from David Silva, Raheem Sterling crossed for Aguero and he made no mistake at the near post after getting ahead of Lamina Kone. "The one that hits the post and comes out, maybe that'll hit the inside of the post and go in next time", he added. That's what kept us up - not the unbelievable football we played.

"During the season we have had good moments, others not so good".

"We try to train and analyse when we are going well why we did it well, when we are not going well, why we didn't do well".

The former England forward's shot on the turn from 20 yards beat keeper Willy Caballero, only to bounce back off the woodwork with Fabio Borini unable to keep his effort on target from the rebound.

He said: "Never, never, never when I see a team or analyse a team, do I see the table".

"We have to do what we did in the past few years, which is get out of where we are".
