Manchester City and United in two-horse Premier League title race?

23 September 2017

West Bromwich Albion host Premier League leaders Manchester City in the League Cup this evening.

Guardiola's team had a hard-fought win at West Brom in midweek and Pep admits it was a game he could have done without. "Three days later we have a game, then three days later we have the Champions League and then, after, Stamford Bridge".

But you waste a lot of energy.

It's Pep Guardiola versus Jose Mourinho, though this time it's been considerably more pleasant than their rivalry in Spain.

"We have a lot of games".

After the Palace match at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, City host Shakhtar Donestsk in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday before visiting reigning champions Chelsea ahead of the October global break.

"I am involved in the group and want to be involved in all competitions we are fighting for this season".

Asked to give a timetable on how long Bradford might be sidelined, Zimmer said he wasn't going to offer any sort of specifics. The Vikings acquired Bradford through a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles just before the 2016 season began.

City appear set to continue their fine start, with a home tie against a hapless, rock-bottom Crystal Palace outfit looking like a banker - particularly with City having won nine of their last 10 versus Palace, who are yet to earn a single Premier League point or score a goal.

The ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss said, "If you have to play the competition you have to play the competition, but it is a title that when you win it is okay, but after that people don't give too much credit".

"So I am sure they view the League Cup as a hindrance, but we certainly don't. You have to be careful", he said.

Their identical records mean they share a three-point gap at the top of the table over Chelsea, who are in third.

"They have to go to sleep tonight and know that tomorrow, we can lose that game".

"There's very little to tell between the two and the only reason like I say there's more pressure on Guardiola is because of what happened last season".

"In football so many things can happen, but I am just here to enjoy, to play and be part of this fantastic squad - and hopefully to win some titles".
