Aguero taken off as a precaution, says Guardiola

Aguero taken off as a precaution, says Guardiola

His goal, clipped inside the far post sublimely from a tight angle after Fulham's Joe Bryan had gifted possession, was a reminder that Aguero turns half-chances into clear openings and it is a facet City will require against sterner opposition than Scott Parker's relegation-bound Fulham. 'After the second goal, the game was under control.

By the time Aguero was substituted in the 57th minute Manchester City were well on their way to a seventh consecutive Premier League victory.

"Playing away after the break is always hard, the players reacted very well", Guardiola told the Guardian.

"Tomorrow we have the real assessment, he says he felt something but not injured".

The Reds won back-to-back league games before the worldwide break, as well as edging out Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League, to get their campaign back on track. What Liverpool and Manchester City have done in the Premier League both deserve credit.

Now though, Robbie Savage has come out to back the Reds and he has urged the fans not to tag Jurgen Klopp's men "bottlers" even if they fail to win the Premier League trophy come May.

"At the beginning of April, we have won two titles this season (Community Shield and League Cup) and we are fighting for the other three (Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup)".

Solskjaer starts with win but United need to improveOle Gunnar Solskjaer toasts victory in his first game as permanent Manchester United boss. 'But we need Kevin De Bruyne and the players who stayed in Manchester like Vincent Kompany, Phil Foden, because in the next game we're going to make a few changes. As a precaution he decided not to continue.

"We know that we are strong enough to create against every opponent, but it takes work and the opponents defend with everything that they have".

Cardiff remain the favourites to be the third and final side to drop to the Championship, with manager Neil Warnock left fuming as the Bluebirds slipped to a controversial defeat to Chelsea to remain five points adrift of safety.

"What's next is Cardiff, so we'll prepare well, and go like a machine to win, to play, and try to win".

"We are realistic, the main focus in the last six games is to keep pushing and end the season on a positive in a disappointing campaign", he added.

"But as long as we have the possibility to go ahead in every single competition, I feel even more that I want to win and win and win and go again".
