Again, Man City grab late win, Bournemouth hold Southampton

The City boss admired how Manchester United used to win so many games in Fergie time and was thrilled his side claimed a fourth successive late victory when David Silva struck seven minutes from time in their 2-1 win over West Ham United.

However, the Catalan coach played down the suggestion that City's late winners are propelling them to the title going into Sunday's massive Manchester derby, Mirror writes.

That is why we are so happy - every game is so tough and it is important to keep our momentum.

City go into Sunday's derby with an extensive lead over United thanks to David Silva's 83rd-minute victor in the 2-1 victory over West Ham United.

However, Pep Guardiola's men, who lacked urgency in the first half, showed determination in the second as Nicolas Otamendi equalised in the 57 minute of the game.

'I heard about the Fergie time, ' Guardiola added. "We played against a really good side and I thought for long periods we frustrated them". I think what happened, the opponent doesn't want to play.

The Etihad club have now won 13 straight Premier League matches and can equal Arsenal's record of 14 if they beat United on their own patch next weekend. They just want to defend, waiting for a moment. 'If we can take something like Fergie time, it is welcome, a pleasure. I understand that and I am not judging them, but it is hard.

West Ham stunned City by taking the lead through Angelo Ogbonna's header just before half-time. "It is the same Chelsea as last season - Liverpool are there, too". "I think it is a big task and I think it's a big job but it's a good job and I've got good players here".

Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick from the edge of the box seemed destined for the goal but Adrian made a superb stop to deny the Belgian and the keeper then made another top-drawer save to deny Jesus's curling effort.
