Manuel Pellegrini Hopeful Jack Wilshere Will Play For West Ham

Raheem Sterling Manchester City 2018-19

Manchester City have the upper hand over Liverpool in the Premier League title due to their experience and the Reds current form.

Manchester City needed the award of a soft penalty, converted by Sergio Aguero, to beat West Ham United and stay a point behind leaders Liverpool with a 1-0 win on Wednesday. But City failed to take any of these chances and as the game went on they employed some game management techniques to make the result safe.

"We played well, but the only thing we didn't do is score enough", he said.

"The schedule is so tough". I know people expect us to win every game 5-0 but we don't care.

"It is very hard because you have six big teams who have a lot of money to bring in good new players, and they already have strong squads also".

With ten rounds of fixtures remaining, De Bruyne has insisted that City must remain fully focused.

Third-place Tottenham's unlikely ambition to challenge City and Liverpool for the title were snuffed out with losses at Burnley and Chelsea in the past week.

"We have had less than 72 hours to prepare (for this game against Newcastle), we made some changes against City to have some players fresh for tomorrow". Although City will take comfort that despite the exhausted legs they continued to create chances even after failing to convert any.

City deserved their victory having dominated from the outset.

The midfielder said: "There's not a different atmosphere as we are probably on the same level as we were then - but a year ago we were 12 points ahead, and now we are one behind". We are going to drop points, Liverpool are going to drop points. Failing to take our chances has blighted our games at key moments in the season which seems insane to say given we are Europe's top scoring side. However, long-term injuries to both Wilshere and Sanchez forced Manuel Pellegrini into giving 20-year-old Declan Rice an extended run in the first team, and the youngster has been one of the breakout stars of the season. Of course, now with Nemanja (Matic) and Ander (Herrera) injured, there'll be more chances for Jimmy. Every season we see them get away with blue murder.
