Guardiola not interested in Juventus move as Man City continue title bid

City were deserved victors against the Hornets but there was controversy over Sterling's opener, which was initially ruled out for offside after Sergio Aguero chested the ball into the England international's path. This season I didn't criticise the referees, I am not going to do (that) today. After, it is true that the defender touches the ball but the defender touches the ball when the striker is going to press him and is close to him. Game by game. The players know we are closer - okay, after the worldwide break - one month and a half.

"I don't know what the issue was but I was hoping my goal didn't get cancelled out", he said afterwards. Watford seemed content to get every player back behind the ball, setting themselves up to hit their opponents on the counter through the likes of Isaac Success and Andre Gray.

"But it was a nervous few seconds waiting for him to make the decision, but I was happy to see him give it".

Sterling completed his treble with a smart finish, but the way the England global opened the scoring brought with it the Premier League's latest offside controversy.

City came into this match in good form, having won their previous five matches - however, they had appeared nervy in their previous two encounters, having won each just 1-0. I have two years and it is impossible for me to move, unless I get sacked. They have also made it to the quarterfinals in UEFA's Champions League, beating out Schalke 04 in the Round of 16.

Cardiff's win was not enough to take the 18th-placed side out of the bottom three but they are only two points behind Burnley and Southampton (30 points) while Brighton joined Palace on 33. It is a hard decision as there are many things for the officials to consider.

Sterling's opening goal following a goalless first half was awarded after originally being ruled out for offside.

While Spurs keep their Champions League spot by finishing just one point above north London rivals Arsenal in the fourth position.

And with Saturday's home game versus Watford followed by a 21-day break to their next league encounter, after which City's schedule is relentless, Guardiola acknowledges the importance of taking another big stride at the Etihad Stadium.

Southampton's late turnaround earned them crucial points in the fight to avoid relegation, just as Cardiff City were able to celebrate an equally important 2-0 win over West Ham United thanks to goals from Junior Hoilett and Victor Camarasa.

'I think if I have to take my decision again, I'll do it the same way'.
