Pep Guardiola anxious for next week's Premier League derby clash

Pep Guardiola anxious for next week's Premier League derby clash

All eyes will be on Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, as Manchester United host Manchester City in arguably the biggest game in recent Premier League history, as United look to stop their neighbours from marching to a seemingly inevitable League title.

"Today I learnt a bit like a manager to tackle it different", he said.

He combated West Ham's defensive strategy by replacing Danilo for striker Gabriel Jesus at half-time, and switching his system from 4-3-3 to 4-2-4, with the Brazilian alongside Sergio Aguero up front and Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane operating on the wings. Pep admitted that United's notable height advantage will create his relatively small team real problems next week.

"I think there are ways to play against them, I think they've got weaknesses". It was massive. They played 10 players inside the box, it was nearly impossible. "It showed what we are". "We didn't have any rhythm because Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time".

Following the two losses to Nunes, UFC president Dana White has been vocal about his opposition to Rousey's return. Ronda Rousey first came into the spotlight when she won the Bronze Medal in Judo at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

"Against the top teams you've got to do it for 90 minutes, not 70 or 80 and we've got some other big games coming up".

Star striker Sergio Aguero was substituted late on against West Ham having only taken two shots on goal for the match, yet Guardiola claims a recent dip in form is partly due to his recovery from a previous auto accident, coupled with more stringent opposition marking.

The 83rd-minute victor came when David Silva launched himself to acrobatically turn in Kevin De Bruyne's brilliant chipped pass but Moyes pointed towards something of a learning experience for 18-year-old Rice, who he credited with impressing up until that point on his third top-flight start. Some of the games we've had this season, I don't think we've been as good as that. The pace was better, we had more presence in the box.

However, having conceded another goal from a set-piece against West Ham, Guardiola expects another aerial bombardment from United next week. It's complicated for us, and they obviously hold the game, and try to take advantage from a set piece.
