Is Maurizio Sarri right to call Manchester City Europe's best team?

Manchester City's manager deliberated over the former Real Madrid striker's best attributes and acknowledged that Higuain does not need much of an opportunity to score.

Both City - bidding for their fourth Premier League title and counting each point gained even more fervently - and Chelsea should be made aware that they are both Dean's favoured teams to send players for early showers out of all the 43 Premier League sides he's ever officiated.

We wanted to go to the Champions League, we had a pretty small squad in that situation and we had to play Champions League, all that stuff, and win each Premier League game, which is a hard job to do.

Though there will be, of course, 22 players who will walk out onto the pitch at the Etihad for the must-watch Premier League tie between Manchester City and Chelsea this weekend, there is one man who should be attracting the most attention as he reaches his own personal milestone.

"They have one of our players at the moment - Clyney (Nathaniel Clyne) - and they signed Dom [Solanke] on a permanent contract as well".

"King, Wilson, Fraser... all the way through, they have a good team and have caused us problems over the last couple of years", Lallana considers.

"They need to be consistent year after year". I think the squad is definitely there, in terms of the depth they have.

"We need to be very fast when we're recovering the ball".

"It's normal", Klopp said of the response to the West Ham result. We were there, focused, physically strong. If we want to be part of that tight race, we can not change that, or offer something else.

Chelsea, on the other hand, just can not afford to lose this game because if they do then Man United will move one point clear at them in the top-four spot. I knew this would be a really tough race and here we are.

The manager revealed that Dejan Lovren was still sidelined, and cast doubt even over his availability for the Champions League first leg against Bayern Munich in February 19.
