Pep Guardiola: "The Premier League is so tough"

  • Spalletti chats to Conte

Manchester City defeated Huddersfield on Friday to maintain their eight points gap at the top of the Premier League table.

Antonio Conte's side needed a late equalizer to come away with a point from their trip to Anfield on Saturday, but City's hard-fought 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town a day later saw them extend their lead over the champions to 11 points.

"I think Manchester City in this season are a strong team, " said Conte.

Raheem Sterling's fortunate late victor gave City the three points after they recovered from the shock of falling behind to a Nicolas Otamendi own goal on the stroke of half-time.

After City's victory over Huddersfield, Guardiola insisted that Sterling's penalty was the correct decision from the match official, but hinted that if someone were to ask Wenger for his opinion, he would probably say otherwise.


Success on the field for the rest of the season will likely dictate which teams end up with the biggest wage bill, with future performance-related payments and bonuses still to be taken into account.

The WNBA's €1,900 average paid to players per game was dwarfed by American Football's NFL (€145,964), Premier League (€78,173) and National Basketball Association (€75,370).

"The 18 games in a row is fantastic and we have 11 in the Premier League in a row so that's good".

Raheem Sterling continued his impressive goal scoring form by scoring the second for visitors. It was a very important game, we did our job and I scored two goals, so I hope I can continue to play in that way'. The match ended in a 1-1 draw.

"It seems that when the opposition get a bit of possession, it is a real problem for Liverpool - and I think only the addition of some new personnel is going to change that".
