Liverpool were top of the table with a game in hand on Manchester City before the worldwide break, but Pep Guardiola's side comfortably beat Fulham 2-0 at Craven Cottage to return to the summit of the league.

Well, I remember Chelsea winning the Champions League when they had a hopeless team and yet they beat a brilliant Barca side in the semi's and Bayern on their own ground in the final, point is, literally anything can happen.

More to the point, as the season reaches its business end, Guardiola is blessed by having an nearly entirely fit squad at his disposal.

"At the end of the match, maybe the players were exhausted (but) we will be back in our rhythm". They showed me the focus.

"He says he felt something, but hopefully he's not injured", he said. Even though maybe I had the same feeling previous year, we struggled a little bit more and earlier in a few competitions.

"The other concern is that with Manchester City competing not just for the Premier League here, they're trying to complete a quadruple, games are going to come thick and fast, big games are going to come thick and fast".

"I think we can reach the top four even if we are not able to win eight matches in a row". 'You need to be lucky and have certain things go for you which you can not necessarily control, but most importantly you need to have the desire in every single game, and this was a good way to start such an huge period.' Fixture congestion and mental fatigue play a part. From the moment Guardiola's men went 2-0 in front, it was played with the pace and intent of a preseason friendly.

Solskjaer starts with win but United need to improveOle Gunnar Solskjaer toasts victory in his first game as permanent Manchester United boss.

The Argentine provided the assist for Bernardo Silva's fifth-minute opener at Craven Cottage before scoring his 19th Premier League goal of the season just before the half-hour mark. In the last four or five games, Gundogan was a massive player for us.

'Seven games left for the Premier League, and it's easy: we have to win every game to be champions, ' said Guardiola.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial put Solskjaer's men two goals ahead but the Hornets were the better side and United will need to improve in their remaining fixtures as they battle for fourth place. 'They dominate possession and at times make you feel powerless.' Fulham's fate is all but sealed after their eighth successive defeat.

"I take it before each game".
