They may not have been as emphatic with some of their recent victories as they were being earlier in the season, but Manchester City are still finding a way to earn three points every Premier League matchday and once again relied on a late victor, yesterday to keep their phenomenal win streak going. The survival specialist, who has saved Sunderland and Crystal Palace from doom in recent years, was in the crowd for the 4-0 win against West Ham in midweek but the 2-0 victory against Huddersfield was Everton's first since he was confirmed in the Toffee's hot-seat.
The Spain worldwide was simply outstanding, making an astonishing 14 saves - the highest ever in the Premier League - which is a number you would normally expect from a keeper playing for a side in the relegation zone against a top of the table side, and definitely not what you'd imagine in a meeting between two of the Premier League's top sides. That is why we are so happy - every game is so tough and it is important to keep our momentum.
And that is when we will really see the true quality and persistence of Pep's side. They moved too much. "We have to more than double the points to be champions". That is a lot.
Guardiola, who had until Monday December 4 to respond, subsequently admitted that he regretted the outburst but said: "I can not control myself". "I think, if we had come away with something today, nobody would have been surprised by it". "I was asked many times about that when we have good results".
"We've worked a bit on it".
I'm not sure it is the most exciting I've ever seen, because there were times when Arsenal's Invincibles played some really unbelievable stuff. We had one day where we could prepare. If David Moyes could not conjure a result up here then the semblance of a platform, a hint of the resilience that has deserted his new charges for so long, would reflect well on everyone involved: he got that at the Etihad and, with a little more quality at either end, might even have left with rather more.
"But we have players like David Silva in the team, so we knew if we kept going we'd get our chances".
West Ham created the better chances than their opponents in the opening 45 minutes and had the opportunity to make Citizens pay for an apparent arrogance, with Michail Antonio wasting a glorious chance at the back post inside the first ten minutes.
