We weren't good enough, says Guardiola as City blow title party

Vincent Kompany happy to delay Premier League title win to raise Man City's chances of Liverpool comeback

Kompany insists City have made winning the title their priority

"This Premier League season has been an amazing adventure and it's been much better than we could have imagined".

Still, City will put out a strong team, with a probable front three of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva, for example, with Sergio Aguero still an injury doubt.

The disappointing result comes after the Citizens were all but knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Premier League rivals Liverpool on Wednesday night.

De Gea's contract runs until June 2019, and can be extended by his club for a further year, making it a contract running to June 2020 for general purposes.

"We wanted to win this game, I won't deny that, but we always knew who we were playing", Guardiola said. Instead, after 27 wins from 31 games, City can become the earliest top flight champions since Sir Matt Busby's United in 1956.

However, inspired by Barcelona's remarkable comeback from a 4-0 first-leg deficit to Paris Saint-Gemrain, Guardiola - a Champions League winner as both a player and a coach at Barcelona - insisted that a remarkable comeback is possible if City are clinical on the night. Time and time again football throws up incredible narratives and coincidence.

A draw won't do it. City MUST get a victory to ensure the title today, and José Mourinho is 200% aware of that fact.

Paul Pogba patted the badge on his Manchester United jersey and told the team's jubilant supporters not to believe what they read in the newspapers. It is a good distance but not done mathematically. 18 games (winning) in a row?

"You have to go into it like any other game", United midfielder Jesse Lingard said. There are wolves at the door, and Mourinho and the fans know that.

City will win this season's Premier League title if it beats second-placed United at the Etihad Saturday.

Speaking immediately after the game to Sky Sports, Mourinho smiled while saying that Pogba's performance at the Etihad would only fuel more speculation. Go here or go to the Man United side with Alex Ferguson and win that, no way.

Paul Pogba scored two goals in two minutes to overturn City's first-half lead before Chris Smalling's header completed the dramatic turnaround.

Pogba will join Ander Herrera in midfield, with the Spaniard one of two changes from Mourinho - Eric Bailly also coming in to United's line up.
