City will win the Premier League if they cap a sensational season by beating United at the Etihad on Saturday evening. United are the world-renowned club, and for all City's handsome football and limitless spending power, when they win the Premier League this year, they will have equalled Sunderland's record of top-tier titles in English football history and overtaken Huddersfield Town.

"Finally, the people discover my secrets, I'm a bad guy, I'm a coward", said Pep Guardiola, responding to recent criticism from Raiola.

Guardiola said: "Two months ago he offered me Mkhitaryan and Pogba to play with us". I'm a bad guy, so he has to protect his players, so he has to know he can not bring his players to a guy like me, like a dog.

Mourinho was particularly guarded when asked whether he felt United had beaten City to the signing of Alexis Sanchez in January. He has since joined Arsenal.

"I have many rivals".

While Guardiola insisted that the France worldwide would be "too expensive" for City, Real Madrid has been touted as a possible destination for him next season.

USA officials have sought to downplay the threat of a broader trade dispute, saying a negotiated outcome is still possible. Trump also instructed the Secretary of Agriculture to implement a plan to "protect our farmers and agriculture interests".

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane gave Jurgen Klopp's effervescent side a handsome lead inside 31 minutes, but, even as they struggled against the Red tide, Guardiola was happy with his players' efforts.

'HE WAS AN HONEST MAN' "Probably because of my age and because of my generation, I met Ray the player and then obviously he was a coach and a football man. During this hard process with him passing away, I managed to have contact with his family through his son, so I know exactly how they feel about their father and obviously I feel sorry".

"Pogba is an incredible player", Guardiola said. "We didn't prepare to win it against united, we focus on what we have to do to win the game". "A top, top player". "We had just a little recovery physically and mentally because our game at Anfield was so tough", the Spaniard told a news conference on Friday.

After winning last year's Europa League and qualifying for Champions League, expectations were high at Old Trafford.

He said: "The celebration I'm not going to make any comments".

After decades of living in United's shadow, City have changed the balance of power in Manchester firmly in their favour and are on the verge of their third title since 2012. We have been second for many many months.
