Pep Guardiola hailed a near-perfect performance from Manchester City, despite being held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor. Find out by following our live matchcast. Mahrez's potential signing was the biggest that fell through, but in the past, we've seen some pretty insane things happen when clubs attempt to sign a player on deadline day only to see the deal fall through.

With the win City briefly extend their leat atop the table to 16 points, while Burnley stay in seventh place.

This, after all, was the first time since April of previous year that his City side have failed to win a game in which they have taken the lead.

"That's why every match until the end of the season is an important match for us". They haven't gone three Premier League away games without a win since May 2016. But despite their successes in the cups last season and their current second position in the league standings, United doesn't seem to be a team that plays with an identity.

"After the game against Burnley until next Wednesday the players will be resting", Guardiola added. We controlled the game, but when we arrived in the last minutes at 1-0, there was danger, " he said. "We have 15 [more], so it is not over", he told reporters.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

However, Guardiola's side ooze class and confidence at the moment and should have enough in their tank to shake off any challenges that Burnley might pose and we at the Hard Tackle predict a 2-0 win for the leaders. I'm sad for the players because we played so well.

"We can not deny and everyone knows how tough it is at Burnley".

"After that we have to go to Stoke City, Goodison Park, we have games against Arsenal, Tottenham, United, Chelsea".

"It makes me feel that they are doing so, so well that they are not letting the others come close to that, as simple as that", said Mourinho when asked how City's dominance made him feel.

United will, however, be without Marouane Fellaini for this game, and several weeks beyond, after he suffered a knee injury at Tottenham.

The match of the night at Wembley, though, played in front of a record crowd for a Premier League game of 81,978, proved a disappointing one for Jose Mourinho as his own major signing Alexis Sanchez failed to shine after United had conceded a "ridiculous" early goal.

"I think tomorrow is an incredible day to show the respect, the passion for the club, respect for them [the Munich victims], respect for the families", said Mourinho.
