Pep Guardiola: Title race would be over had Manchester City not won

A frustrating afternoon for Austin came to an end when he was replaced by Irish striker Shane Long towards the end of Southampton's 3-1 defeat at St. Mary's.

"He's been looking at this for a year now or more and unusually City have not really responded or reacted properly to this".

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published every day in the build-up to the 2019 January transfer window.

The Frenchman's opener on five minutes owed much to the brilliant skill of Marcus Rashford who dribbled beyond two Bournemouth defenders before crossing for Pogba to tap into an empty net.

"We don't think about the gap, not for a second".

I can't wait for that match - especially being a Liverpool fan, and with them now having a seven-point lead at the top of the table.

"Given the position of Liverpool, [if] we drop points, it's over, it's finished - it would be nearly impossible", Guardiola said.

De Bruyne was City's star player as they cruised to the title last season but he has endured a considerably hard time so far this season owing to injury.


"We are not here to send messages to Liverpool".

"It's one of those key games you live for".

Van Dijk admitted that it will be a tough game, but he insists it is a fixture Liverpool want to win. David Silva and Sergio Aguero were both on target, with an own goal from James Ward-Prowse also helping their cause.

"That's what I'm most delighted with, mistakes are part of the game".

The striker was booked in the second half and then booed by the travelling support as he jogged off the pitch ten minutes later.

'Today he was not able to play, but it is not a big issue.
