Chelsea should be anxious by Manchester City's spending strategy - Conte

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola this evening aimed a brilliantly cheeky dig at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, after the Premier League leaders put Huddersfield to the sword by 2 goals to 1.

City underlined their determination to win the title with a gutsy 2-1 victory at Huddersfield on Sunday as Pep Guardiola's side reestablished an eight-point lead over second placed United.

"The Potters are not a team I am anxious about in terms of relegation, but I think they will stay close to the relegation zone for another few days at least".

But City crushed those hopes in gritty fashion as Sergio Aguero's penalty two minutes after the interval eased any nerves from the leaders, who piled on the pressure and were rewarded with six minutes left when Raheem Sterling netted the victor.

"It was a brilliant move to win the penalty". Then, towards the end of the season, maybe overtake them. "What I thought was, I really thought was that we should have won the game". Because there are games every three days and you have to play a lot of games like this. "We have to be there to keep on winning and hopefully close down on them".

United were the best-paid team in the world in last season's GSSS, but players with big contracts such as Wayne Rooney and Bastian Schweinsteiger have since been offloaded.

While Manchester United claimed a win on Saturday, Liverpool and Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw and Tottenham dropped points at home to West Brom.

Sterling has been in sensational form for Guardiola's side this season, scoring 11 goals in 17 appearances for the Manchester club so far.

"It seems that when the opposition get a bit of possession, it is a real problem for Liverpool - and I think only the addition of some new personnel is going to change that". He is winning games and now he is a winning player.
