Sterling hat-trick boosts City's lead at top of table

May JohnsonMar 11, 2019

Belgian worldwide Lukaku scored two goals to give Manchester United a priceless 3-1 win at Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in their last 16-second leg clash and that was more than enough for the Red Devils to secure a quarterfinal spot on away goals.

Pep Guardiola insists allegations of malpractice at Manchester City can not taint his legacy or the achievements of his side.

"We were the better team on the pitch", he said when asked about the game's pivotal moment.

The Catalan coach claimed that they are likely to drop a few points but are still hoping to keep distance between them and Liverpool.

A second half rampage from Manchester City saw them beat Watford 3-1 in the English Premier League as they went four clear at the top of the table.

"We showed a lack of aggressiveness, lack of the hunger that you need to kill the games and win", Pochettino said.

With a 3-2 lead over Schalke heading into Tuesday's Champions League last 16 second leg and an FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea next weekend, City are still in with a chance of sweeping up all the available silverware.

Case Keenum trade details: Redskins acquire QB for pick, half salary
Though John Elway indicated he wanted Keenum to stay with the team, trading him is a move you can't argue with. Last season, his first full-season as a starter, Keenum guided the Denver Broncos to a 6-and-10 record.

The England global has been tipped as a potential candidate for the Premier League's Player of the Year, but Guardiola believes he can do even more. Two days of damaging headlines, with UEFA and the Premier League opening investigations into City's financial affairs, do not appear to have permeated the Etihad Stadium dressing room. We know how hard teams can be, we know how hard these competitions are, we're playing against top teams, top players and anything can happen.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling celebrates with the League Cup trophy after the match against Chelsea, February 24, 2019.

The introduction of Troy Deeney and Gerard Delofeu immediately paid dividents for the visitors as the pair combined within thirty seconds of coming on for Delofeu to pull one back in the 66th minute. We won because we were better, much better than the opponent.

The brace ensured the England striker became the first player to achieve a three-figure tally of goals for the Foxes since Gary Lineker.

Before Wednesday night's game, Liverpool FC will focus on getting back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Burnley at Anfield. The former Liverpool winger felt his 46th-minute opener changed the course of the game, following a first half in which City struggled to penetrate Watford's organised defence.

"That decision, I think everybody could see what happened".
