Sunderland 0 Man City 2

Sunderland 0 Man City 2

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane saw City come away 2-0 winners at the Stadium of Light. The two men clashed in the 2014 Champions League when the present Sunderland boss was manager at Manchester United. We've been told about the history of the club, they tell us that it's a hard-working place, and that's what we have to do. Barely had they been asked a question by the hosts in the entire 90 minutes, but that all changed when the Spaniard strode on to the pitch to engage in some robust post-game debriefs. "Against the teams that are fighting it is hard", Toure told BT Sport after City had closed to within eight points of leaders Chelsea.

Any hope Stoke harboured of their hosts suffering from fatigue given the short turn-around before their trip to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday - where an eighth win in 10 unbeaten games will see Guardiola's side move up to second - were dashed in this early Spring stroll.

Sunderland are now in last place but if David Moyes manages to record his first home victory of 2017 it could move them into 18th position.

Adnan Januzaj also glanced a header wide of the far post as Sunderland continued to perform admirably, but City were able to gradually play out time in order to keep hold of their lead heading into the closing stages.

"[But] we are so happy".

But as is so often the case with this Sunderland side, they were unable to get to half-time without conceding a goal in the latter stages of the first half.

"With this talent it would be a pity if we didn't try to help him to fulfil all this potential that he has".

Caballero saved from Seb Larsson moments later as Sunderland looked for a quick response, but City were in total control as Sunderland failed to cut the six-point gap between themselves and safety.

The visitors will look to take advantage of their deeper roster and their limited injury concerns (only recent signing Gabriel Jesus will miss out) to come out and get a win, in order to make a last ditch effort at challenging Chelsea for the title.

"I feel we are playing quite good and that's why we are making results, but now we are in a position when you arrive in March and April when if you win every game you stay but if you lose you are out". I don't think you can fault the players for any of that.
