"When you ask me what he (Sterling) can improve - that (finishing)!" said Guardiola, whose side remains in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple of Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League titles in the one season.

"Chelsea is a champion, again a fantastic market".

An extraordinary miss by Raheem Sterling proved the turning point as Burnley recovered to snatch a draw against runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City 1-1 at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Blues are 15 points clear of Manchester United at the summit and are showing few signs of letting up as the season enters February. Spurs moved to within two points of the pair on 48.

Guardiola, as well as Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, have called for referees to protects players from unsafe challenges following recent bad tackles by West Brom's Matt Phillips and Cardiff City's Joe Bennett on City players. "He made an wonderful, unbelievable performance".

It was already a tall order for United to reel in their rivals and, despite the season only just entering February, Mourinho can not foresee a scenario in which City relinquish their grasp on the title.

Ozil has made 132 appearances since moving to the Emirates from Real Madrid in 2013, scoring 36 goals and creating 61 assists. Jamie Redknapp has warned Mesut Ozil that it is now time for him to step up and deliver on a consistent basis for Arsenal .

Eriksen cashed in with a neat finish after Spurs had launched a long ball straight from kickoff that was flicked on by Harry Kane and Dele Alli. It was just his second goal for City but he won't get too many better.

"Of course we are sad for the dropped two points, but to come here and play the way we played is nearly impossible", he said". "It was a really, really bad goal".

Now, Burnley boss Sean Dyche has been talking about Guardiola's change of tactic but admits it's needed to cope with the Premier League demands.

"He is going to go on loan and we will see at the end of the season". The defeat saw West Brom drop to 20th in the EPL table. "In my experience until everything is done, you have to be prepared for anything to happen".

The 23-year-old, who joined the Etihad Stadium outfit during the summer from Ligue 1 side Monaco for a fee believed to be around £50m, made just four appearances for the north west giants before rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in September.

City should have scored their second goal on the stroke of half time when Sergio Aguero beat two defender before unleashing a powerful 18-yard shot, but Nick Pope produced a wonderful save to deny him.
