Raheem Sterling delights Pep Guardiola but Blues boss demands even more

Manchester City made to suffer in nervy win over Watford says Pep Guardiola

The winger re-established City's one-goal lead in the second half during a 3-1 win over Bournemouth after smashing the post from range minutes earlier, while Leroy Sane caused havoc down the opposing flank to retain runner-up spot.

Today, we pick out three players in the Premier League now who can achieve a lot more if they move on to another club.

Callum Wilson scored a minute before half-time to cancel out Bernardo Silva's opener, but Sterling re-established City's lead before Ilkay Gundogan gave them some breathing space.

Strikes in each half from James McArthur and Andros Townsend were Palace's first goals from open play at home all season.

Manchester City moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League as Raheem Sterling inspired a 3-1 win over Bournemouth, while Manchester United's problems mounted as they escaped with a 2-2 draw at lowly Southampton on Saturday.

But, the Citizen coach is not anxious about that and asks him to relax and keep helping Manchester City to win.

While talking about Gabriel Jesus, Pep Guardiola said "He just needs to relax", and then added, "I love his work ethic". I know when I did it I was not happy to have done it.
