Atalanta v Man City: Pep's men to march on

Atalanta v Man City: Pep's men to march on

Liverpool left it even later.

Guardiola stoked pre-match tensions before Sunday's top-of-the-table clash at Anfield by accusing Liverpool forward Mane of simulation.

It can be hard to predict Guardiola's starting line-up and he may have one eye on Sunday's crunch Premier League clash with Liverpool, although he has insisted he will not rest players.

Manchester City needed an 86th-minute victor from defender Kyle Walker to complete their comeback at home to Southampton who was a vastly improved side to the one which suffered a 9-0 defeat at home to Leicester City a week ago.

Guardiola now admits he was wrong to suggest Mane, who recently won crucial late penalties against Leicester and Tottenham and was booked for diving against Aston Villa, regularly goes down too easily.

Following Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola's controversial remarks about Liverpool's Sadio Mane on the weekend, it has been claimed the Spanish tactician is scared of the African superstar's capabilities.

But Solskjaer said: "We have to win games like this".

That said, the home side have conceded the opener in each of their last three Serie A games and lost 2-0 on their own patch at the weekend.

A steadfast commitment to their principles was the key factor behind Liverpool's dramatic comeback against Aston Villa, according to Virgil van Dijk. And he added that he was unsure about an injury-time penalty awarded in their late win at Leicester when Mane fell under a challenge from Marc Albrighton.

Robertson said his team's job was to force errors from Villa all the way to the final whistle.

"We're going to play with the best team possible to win at Atalanta and after we go to Anfield". "If we do that or not, that's another thing".

"I'm trying to stay as fit and healthy as I can and trying to get a run of games when called upon. That's why this is the best league in the world, every single game can be like this one".

Roberto Firmino found the net for Liverpool but was denied the equaliser as VAR reinforced the linesman's decision to raise his flag.

The goal was ruled out by VAR, with the Premier League offering a freaky explanation that said Firmino's "armpit" was offside.

City had little trouble beating Southampton 3-1 in the League Cup on Tuesday, but Saturday was a very different proposition.

Pep Guardiola's champions fell behind to James Ward-Prowse's early goal at the Etihad Stadium.

The Argentina bagged a brace to secure a 2-1 lead at the interval before Sterling fired in a second-half hat-trick, all three goals coming in the space of 11 minutes.
