'Man City not yet a finished product'

17 Mai 2017

Manchester City are very close to a top-four finish in the Premier League thanks to a convincing 5-0 victory over Crystal Palace at the Etihad last Saturday. It seems as if they won't be able to rely on any slip ups from the blue half of Manchester, with City looking so strong, and as Manchester United continue to snap at their heels, the pressure is on. "We have two more games at home, one more game than Liverpool and it depends on that". Going ahead in the first minutes of the game helped us a lot but we still needed a second and Vincent scored an fantastic goal.

"Maybe if we end up on the same points, goal difference could make the difference".

City hit five goals for the first time in their league campaign as five different players got on the scoresheet, but Guardiola indicated that he wanted to add more firepower.

The City manager said: 'I remember only one game when the opponent created more chance than us: it was White Hart Lane at Tottenham.

Biggest win Despite being without injured top scorer Sergio Aguero, City recorded its biggest league win under Guardiola, having often struggled to put away teams at home because of wayward finishing and sloppy defending. Against Chelsea, we create more chances both here and at Stamford Bridge but in the boxes we are not good. We are the best in the league at doing that, we create more chances than anyone, but we are not always able to score the goals.

"Vincent helps us with his presence to be better in our box, but in the box of the opponent we are not good". Especially with the teams competing with us, there is no chance to relax. Nobody can beat us.

"(Former manager) Manuel Pellegrini missed him a lot last season and you can see that. The most hard thing in football, basketball, tennis, in all the sports is to do it in the last moment. That's why we're in the situation that we are'.

Auto split down middle after crash - and driver SURVIVED
A Chevrolet Malibu was split down the middle, half of it spun onto a hill alongside the highway. The 8 a.m. crash shut down traffic on Highway 101 intermittently throughout Saturday morning.

"But here there are an wonderful six top teams and all of them deserve for their history, for their quality [to qualify]".

City are effectively in a three-way fight with Liverpool and Manchester United for the final two Champions League places. "That would be fantastic".

"I don't want to even think about going to Old Trafford and needing points to stay in the Premier League", said Allardyce.

"The performance was full of so many errors, which surprised me so much", said Allardyce.

"We need a result against Hull next week and we need to get back to keeping clean sheets", he said.

Prior to April, the Belgian had made just six appearances all season, continuing a wretched run that also saw him sit out 37 games, mostly due to injury, last term.
