Kevin De Bruyne is contractually entitled to a £750,000 bonus for winning the Premier League, £300,000 for the FA Cup and £75,000 for the League Cup, but will receive less after featuring less than expected in a campaign that has been disrupted by injury problems.

A 1-1 draw with the league's bottom side has become just another painful footnote in an abject season on and off the field for Manchester United. At Bayern Munich he again won three Bundesliga titles in a row, between 2013 and 2016. It's the toughest league I've ever played as a manager, because of the quality from the rivals. That's why being there [in contention] is incredible. Only one will take the prize and the other will be at home sad.

However, having played one match more than their tile rivals, they are now hoping Leicester - on Monday - or Brighton next weekend can do them a favour. "It's incredible what we have done, but it will make more sense if we are able to lift the Premier League".

Then, you can say: 'It's done - we did it last season.' But we did the opposite of that.

"It shows us where we are. we're not living in fantasy land thinking we can catch the top two, we're far away but we shouldn't be speaking about being far off the top four at Manchester United", The Norweigan told the press yesterday.

Guardiola outlined how he gauges his team's achievements. In my career as a manager, I played against incredible sides and there are two that were "wow". "There are two that were "wow". One is Barcelona with Luis Enrique, with Neymar, [Lionel] Messi and [Luis] Suarez up front. The other is this Liverpool", quoted Guardiola as saying on Sunday."I think they're the best two sides I've faced as a manager.

"I don't think they would have been watching Liverpool and fearing the worst".

Bill Barr's performance as a non-partisan attorney general is in question now that he threw Mueller under the bus. Lawyers were going to be used to cross-examine the attorney general following questioning by members of Congress.

The Leicester defense gives Manchester City some trouble, but the speed and technical ability of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling eventually get to them, and in the end City wins a narrow one.

Leicester are ninth in the Premier League table and could jump to eighth with a win.

In the history of the Premier League, we have never seen a title race like this one. "They have to have it in their heads and feet", he said.

But they will still need two more wins to complete the job.

"In two months, everyone has played how he wants them to play - the movement and positioning is well-coordinated".

Manager Jurgen Klopp remains optimistic and Robertson admits the injury affected the team for a while, just like it did in last May's Champions League final when the Egypt worldwide was forced off early on with a shoulder injury.
