Man City go top after crushing Burnley

Johann Berg Gudmundsson

"Ups and downs, moments where you are better than other ones - that is normal". Sometimes I have taken decisions that I have regretted afterwards. "That's what it is - that happens".

Former England regular Hart won two Premier Leagues, one FA Cup and two League Cups during his time in Manchester, after joining from Shrewsbury Town in 2006.

Erik Lamela's first-half header and a composed defensive display sealed a fourth successive league victory for Mauricio Pochettino's team.

Such is the esteem Hart is held in at City, that he was invited to their Etihad Campus on Thursday for the unveiling of a mosaic depicting him in action and a training pitch that has been named after him, as they did for another stalwart, Yaya Toure. Hart was invited to a special opening ceremony on Thursday and a further presentation will be made today.

Asked if De Bruyne is ready to return, Guardiola said on Friday: 'Yes. "Tomorrow you will see how people appreciate what he has done for this club", added Guardiola.

Pedigree Despite Hart's pedigree, Guardiola felt Hart was unsuited to his style of play, which places emphasis on goalkeepers playing out with their feet.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Guardiola said: "Normally the player thinks of himself, himself, himself - it's not easy - but he put himself a little bit in my position and said he understood perfectly".

"He's started his career and hopefully he can achieve what he was looking for".

The verdict of Manafort stand 8 February
Prosecutors agreed to drop, and the judge dismissed, the remaining 10 charges the jury could not come to an agreement on. It also resolved the outstanding question of whether Manafort would be sentenced before he had finished cooperating.

"I can only reiterate how much of a legend he is for this club".

Manager Pep Guardiola is hopeful Walker will recover from a groin problem in time but he is now a doubt.

Dyche said: "That will do him the world of good and we just took him off as a precaution". "I didn't bring him (to Burnley) to prove a point to anyone".

It looked like a good opportunity had gone begging as Sane passed rather than shooting, but Mahrez rescued the situation by gathering the stray ball and beating Hart with an exquisite curling shot from just outside the area.

With Juventus to come twice in quick succession in the Champions League and a visit to City also to come before the next worldwide break in three weeks' time, Mourinho needs a good start to a hard spell to avoid more speculation over his future.

"The club are working on that, yes", the Spaniard said.

Defensive deficiencies remain a concern, but United have shown in their past two games what they are capable of when given the freedom to go forward and Mourinho could now remain in charge at Old Trafford for a while yet.

"Guardiola added: "(It is) not (just) for the recent performances. In the meantime a player who was off the pitch walks back on the pitch to get the ball that's off the pitch and deliver a cross that they score from.
