"The first half, he can do better".

Sterling's opening goal was hotly disputed as he was initially flagged offside, but referee Paul Tierney overruled the decision after a three-minute discussion with his linesman.

With that, the game changed in City's favour and the points were never in doubt as the pressure now switches to Liverpool, who face Burnley at Anfield on Sunday lunchtime.

"I guess we are going to drop points, because it is nearly impossible if we go ahead in all competitions not to drop points", said the 48-year-old.

"There should be an easy solution and next season there will be".

Clubs voted against using VAR in the Premier League this season, but it will be introduced in 2019/20.

"The Premier League has previously contacted Manchester City to request information regarding recent allegations and is in ongoing dialogue with the club", a Premier League statement read.

"Next season we won't be having this conversation and we will be clear". "One with nine and we won the first one".

Manchester City got exactly what they deserved out of this match as they spent the whole game searching and probing for goal scoring opportunities.

Watford's manager added: "I don't think the VAR is the solution".

But the counter argument was that Janmaat only tried to clear the ball because of Sterling's presence, which meant he was active. "A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played by a teammate is penalised if he clearly attempts to challenge for the ball. After that, it is true the defender touches the ball, but he touches it because Sterling is close to him and is going to press him". But when you are in all competitions, if you go out in the cup or the Champions League, it is how you react in the Premier League.

Liverpool still trail Manchester City in the Premier League table despite losing only once to City's four times this season: no non-title winners have lost three fewer games than the champions since 1926-27, when Huddersfield Town (eight defeats) were edged out by Newcastle United (11 defeats). "Here there are many people working to make last season's level and if they can do that it will be down to hard work and not luck".

Guardiola, though, was not gushing in his praise of the England winger.

"He didn't help us a lot defensively in the first half and he gave the ball away".

With a 3-2 lead over Schalke heading into Tuesday's Champions League last 16 second leg and an FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea next weekend, City are still in with a chance of sweeping up all the available silverware.
