Special Foden has something that's difficult to find - Guardiola

"We could have lost the Premier League today - after Wednesday it was really tough".

Foden and Bernardo both shone in City's 1-0 Premier League victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium as three points saw us return to the top of the Premier League table.

There is no time to rest for City, though, with a trip to local rivals Manchester United on Wednesday, and Silva has warned that his team must overcome another major obstacle in their pursuit of successive league titles.

"It's another massive game that we know we need to win as Liverpool will probably win all the games they have left in the Premier League", Silva added. They need points to be in the top four and we need them to fight for the title.

Manchester City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne is set to miss the crucial Manchester derby as he suffered suspected hamstring strain against Tottenham.

But all said and done, this timid Man United side just does have the potential to stand up against Pep Guardiola's Man City even if they wanted too. And we needed this type of attitude, to be aggressive at the start, because Tottenham are an incredible side the way they get in behind us with the ball, the way they attack our back [line].

Soon after the announcement, the residents said they heard rocket and artillery fire in several districts of the capital Tripoli. On Thursday, both the United States and Russian Federation said they could not support a U.N.

'It's a very hard game to go to United and play well, but I know we're capable of doing it, ' Foden said.

"We felt the atmosphere - the fans were great today, as they were three days ago".

Phil Foden's seventh goal of the season was by far his most important.

The teenager impressed Guardiola, who said he never had a young player as good as Foden when he was in charge of Barcelona.

When I just landed [in Manchester] Txiki [Begiristain, director of football] told me, 'You have to meet one player, 15 or 16 years old, you have to know him.' And the first season I did but one day or two days he came to training sessions and I said, 'Wow, you're right, Txiki. It was very warm outside and we played a very tough team with less than 72 hours to recover.

Yet there is a pattern to City's exits from Europe in the past three seasons and it is one which should concern Guardiola and his players.
