Manchester City Equalled An Impressive Premier League Record, Yesterday

Manchester City Equalled An Impressive Premier League Record, Yesterday

The popular midfielder came on as a substitute at the week's as Man United were ruthless and clinical to beat Arsenal 3-1 away from home at the Emirates.

And nine points from those games will be a must, if they are to remain in the title race.

So why is Shearer still backing United?

File image of Manchester United's Ander Herrera. With no Pogba for the clash, he may well feel even more vindicated than usual.

"But I was not saying [on Match of the Day] they are as good as City, because based on the consistent levels of performances this season so far, they have not been".

For the faithful Red Devils fans who remain convinced their team will rise to the occasion and hand City their first bitter pill of defeat to swallow on Sunday evening, never have you had a better time to put your money where your heart is and get over 2 to 1 on your stake for seeing your side win at home.

"So any thoughts City have of a runaway title success, leading to years of domination, must be tempered".

Arsenal managed to win 14 successive games in 2002, however, their 14th win ran into the next season and so does not count - although in doing so they set the record for the longest winning run in the English top flight (14). "I tipped them for the league this season and, while that may look a forlorn hope, I am not giving up yet".

Former Manchester City assistant David Platt has revealed to beIN SPORTS that he did not think that Manchester City players Sergio Agüero and David Silva could make the grade at the Etihad Stadium when they first arrived at the club. Another win which proves the superb character of Pep Guardiola's team.

He added: "Obviously it's more hard when the other team has 11 behind the ball, it takes more time, but the late goals are evidence of them getting exhausted with the way that we play".
