Three things we learned from Man City 3-0 West Brom

Three things we learned from Man City 3-0 West Brom

TOTTENHAM'S Christian Eriksen scored within 11 seconds on Wednesday to overshadow Alexis Sanchez's Premier League debut for Manchester United, while Chelsea crashed to a 3-0 defeat by Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

"With the points we have in normal conditions the distance that keeps the fight open and in this moment the fight is open for 2,3,4,5 but the fight for 1 is closed".

Harris made the revelation when responding to a tweet from fellow Journalist Richard Jolly, who had previously revealed that on the basis of United's current record, City only need to collect 14 more points from their remaining 13 games to be crowned champions.

When it was pointed out that at 55 he could collect his pension in the UK, Mourinho laughed and said there was no risk he'd be doing any such thing in the next decade or so. We have to avoid fouls, control the second balls and long balls to [Ashley] Barnes and [Sam] Vokes. Not letting the others come close.

Every challenge, they were saying 'you're not protecting our players, referee!'.

Among the games they played a year go was the first ever Manchester derby outside England against United in Houston. "We have tough games left to play", Guardiola said.

Though the 60th anniversary of the crash - United were returning via Munich from Belgrade after seeing off Red Star Belgrade to reach the European Cup semi-finals - falls on Tuesday, a minute's silence will be held ahead of Saturday's home Premier League match against Huddersfield.

"In the first half, he came to me and came with a couple of questions I answered", the United manager said. "That was the "click" for the improvement because in 2006-07 United won the title back".

"We have shown even in our two defeats this season that we will try until the very end".

"We are trying to win something this season, and if not, we will try to be stronger for next season".

"Then we must try to start next season in a good way, like we did this season, but try to be more consistent and try not to lose points where we shouldn't, like we have done this season".

The Belgium midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and Mourinho was only half joking when he urged Fellaini to accept United's offer of a new one rather than risk being without a club while recovering from injury. "In preseason a lot of players will be here with those at the World Cup, and I don't know who will be available".
