  • Tone set for Manchester derby after City victory & Pogba red card

The FA will then decide whether Guardiola, who also encroached onto the pitch to celebrate when Raheem Sterling scored City's 95th-minute victor, should face a disrepute charge following his conduct. He has not been charged with misconduct at this stage.

"What Redmond said in his statement, I admire him as a player and thank him for his comments".

'He commented on my qualities as a young English player and how he wanted me to attack his team more during the game in a similar way to last season. But they didn't want to play, they were time-wasting from the ninth minute.

I've just seen this story and felt I had to say something and clear a few things that are floating around right now. I didn't know him last season, I realised how good he is.

"If you ask me what happened and I explain what happened and the people don't believe me it is better we cancel our press conferences and just play games".

And he did not want to discuss the latter on Friday, saying: "Forget me against Wenger. It's not a problem".

Nathan Redmond has defended Pep Guardiola following their on-field altercation at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Hojbjerg told Redmond such behaviour was not unusual and, if Guardiola liked a player, it did not matter whether they played for his side.

Clemson is the No. 1 ranked team in the College Football Playoff Poll released Tuesday evening by the CFP Committee. Auburn advanced to the SEC Championship Game to face Georgia , while Alabama must await its postseason fate.

However, the matchup turned out to be far from a straightforward one for Guardiola's men, with Oriol Romeu's equaliser 15 minutes from time having thrown a spanner in the works for the Premier League table-toppers, following Kevin De Bruyne's opener in the 47th-minute.

"I know Pellegrino wanted to win the game, definitely".

"Today he could not attack because they defend all the time, but that is what it is".

"Of course, he was my team-mate. It's the same as I do to beat them".

"I can't manage the reaction of others".

"With Southampton, he can play the way he played but can also play completely differently".
