Manchester City's opening goal came courtesy of a 'modern' penalty; the type of soft foul which while almost everyone accepts is a penalty almost all should feel uncomfortable seeing it.

United were well below par in their defeat, with the newly promoted side rediscovering some of their sparkling early-season form.

"I am happy with the 11 wins in a row because we show we can win a lot of games in a row".

"Aguero should pay a tribute to us", he said. "We have such a strong connection outside the pitch, and we take it onto the pitch".

All Whites coach Anthony Hudson will want Wood at full fitness for next month's intercontinental play-off against Peru for a spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It means a lot. "It is the best way to work".

'If I have to put my hand, my head or my foot there to help the team, that's what I'm going to do.

"For me, [the clean sheets] have been massive this season, creating that platform for the boys to go and score", he said.

Delph attempted 95 passes in the victory over Burnley for City and completed an impressive 93 per cent of them.

In addition, Alli created two goal-scoring chances for his team-mates.

"We must keep the rhythm, keep focused and continue to play our game".

Key to that has been the arrival of Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson, who has brought more confidence to the back line. The Belgian created four chances and notched an assist against Burnley; more than any other player for Guardiola's side.

"He clearly touched me, I felt it. I haven't seen the replay yet but I think it was a penalty", he told reporters.

"There's minimal contact. I don't know how the referee saw it, because it was that instant. One more goal, it's going to happen sooner or later".

Pope used his feet again as Aguero angled in from the left and fired towards the far post, with Tarkowski bravely throwing his head in the way to block Bernardo Silva's follow-up.

"He is a guy who is so stable in the bad moments and the good moments during the game", said Guardiola of the 24-year-old. He was instrumental in City keeping possession as his quick one-touch passes between the centre-backs opened up space for his teammates to exploit.

"But all the time he plays high as we play high".
