Chelsea are 'almost unstoppable', says Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola

Borini scored a winner against Chelsea in 2014 to spark a late season escape from relegation

Goals in each half from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane were enough to secure another win but Guardiola conceded the team he took over last summer can not catch Chelsea.

"During the season we have had good moments, others not so good".

Goalkeeper Vito Mannone has recovered from illness and Billy Jones is available after having stitches in a head wound, but Jack Rodwell (hamstring) is being assessed and the game will come too soon for midfielders Jan Kirchhoff (knee) and Steven Pienaar (calf).

"Probably in the calendar you would say this was one of the tough fixtures, to come here and beat Manchester City, and I thought the players gave it a go and I have told them that".

"What is the best result for this season?".

"It's a pity that the distance between Chelsea is so big", said Guardiola.

"They are doing everything they can in their training and giving everything in their games, and if we keep doing that we'll have a great chance". "We know we don't have to play brilliant football to stay up, but confidence is key in modern football and you saw what Leicester did last season when they had it, so we have to stay strong". Sunderland head into the match six points adrift of safety, and now sit rock bottom.

Shares of Snapchat parent company open at $24
Meanwhile, Snap's chairman Michael Lynton planned to sell nearly 55,000 shares in the offering, bringing in more than $930,000. Snap said earlier that it will use a small portion of the proceeds for settling tax obligations related to stock options.

It's a new game - Tottenham and Liverpool were not able to win in Sunderland.

"Never, never, never when I see a team or analyse a team, do I see the table", he said.

Aguero has been in fine form since getting his place back, scoring five goals in his last three matches across all competitions, including the opener in Sunday's win at the Stadium of Light.

Black Cats manager David Moyes is also without Jason Denayer, the defender on loan from City, who is unable to play against his parent club.

"With the quality players we have we started to move the ball about". The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager made a similar point in midweek after fielding a strong side and thrashing Sky Bet Championship side Huddersfield 5-1 in an FA Cup fifth-round replay.

"Next year, when Pep gets everyone fit, is Aguero going to be OK with coming in and out of the team?"
