Silva double earns title-chasing Man City 2-0 win at Stoke

Manchester United will host Liverpool – the two sides are separated by just two points

First, City must win their visit to mid-table Everton but, should they do so, Guardiola will win his first league title in English football with victory over his old rival Mourinho at the Etihad.

He went back after the game against Basel last week but he came back, has trained and is ready to play against Stoke. The bad news is that visiting the bet365 Stadium on Monday evening is champions elect Manchester City.

As has been then case so many times this season, the goal came with devastating pace and precision on the counter-attack after striker Gabriel Jesus had dropped deep and become involved in build-up play.

Pep Guardiola manager thanked Manchester City's Abu Dhabi owners for standing by him when he failed to deliver any trophies in his first season at the club.

The Premier League match between Stoke and Manchester City will be broadcast on NBCSN.

Lambert's men have lost their last six Premier League games against clubs now sitting fifth or higher in the table, scoring just three goals in those matches and conceding an alarming 27.

And Silva said following the match: "When I play football I forget everything".

'Sometimes you have to hold your hand up and understand why they're going to win the title.

Melrose shows cool head in battle for GKN
Melrose said the new offer (81 pence plus a 1.69 new Melrose share for each GKN share) won't be increased under any circumstances. The board of FTSE 100 engineering firm GKN has rejected a "final offer" worth £8.1bn in a hostile takeover attempt by Melrose .

Guardiola was wearing a yellow daffodil during the match, in common with counterpart Paul Lambert and all other Premier League managers this weekend, to raise awareness for the Marie Curie charity.

"I think it's a good experience to move to another country and see different realities to your own". Maybe we are able to do it in two games, but believe me, before and after United we have quarter-finals and in those moments, the important thing is to focus on the quarter-finals.

"He wants to know what happens but always accepts whatever I, Txiki and Ferran decide".

With nine games remaining in the Premier League season, Stoke are fighting for their Premier League lives.

But City took total control after half-time, and in the 50th minute Silva added a second, looping a shot over Butland after more good work from Jesus. And it's probably not too much a stretch of the imagination to suggest they probably didn't concede possession either!

"Then it is best to play one game and rest for two because after six months you have to be careful to avoid a muscular injury".

Stoke made a mess of a drop-ball situation in the latter stages and Sterling went through on goal but Ndiaye just did enough to put him off as he attempted to round Butland.
