Pep Guardiola welcomes Uefa investigation on Manchester City

The home side had kept City at bay for most of the first half but Ben Foster's goal was finally breached five minutes before the break when a cross from Algerian Mahrez was edged past the goalkeeper by the chest of Leroy Sane. When it was 2-0 we had chances to kill the game and we didn't. "At the end you saw them wasting time, we have been close to getting a result but they are a very good team - they deserved to win".

Vincent Kompany cautioned that Manchester City will not always win while playing "fantasy football" after Watford threatened late on in a 2-1 victory for the Premier League leaders. "If something is wrong, they're going to tell us".

That team, made up nearly entirely of Scottish players, was lead to an 11-point win in the title that term - their second on the spin - under the guidance of Tom Watson. Pep Guardiola made six changes to his starting line-up despite also missing Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne through injury.

Mahrez came in for the England global and the luxury of options on offer to Guardiola was obvious as both his wide men found the net in Sterling's absence.

Callum Wilson scored his eighth Premier League goal of the season, as well as assisting another, as Bournemouth ended a run of four straight defeats with a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.

- Only Burnley (46 per cent) and Newcastle United (55 per cent) have scored a higher percentage of headed goals than Huddersfield (40 per cent) in the competition this season.

Yet, the best save of the opening half came down the other end when Ederson stretched out his left foot to block Troy Deeney's effort from point-blank range.

City got uncharacteristically slack in the final quarter, though, and were made to pay when Doucoure finally turned home after a goalmouth scramble.

"Last season, we won against Southampton [in the] 95th minute and West Ham [in] the last minute". In the last few minutes they had chances.

The Premier League match between Bournemouth and Huddersfield will be broadcast online.

"Jesus will score, it's important he had the chances, he's creating the spaces, the second goal he created himself", Guardiola said.
