Pep Guardiola stands by decision to recall Claudio Bravo after latest mistake

Pep Guardiola stands by decision to recall Claudio Bravo after latest mistake

A stunning team move finished by Sergio Aguero and a Fabian Delph strike ensured City ended a run of four EPL games without a win after an Ahmed Elmohamady own goal gave it the lead.

Short of the injured Harry Maguire, Hull were carved open inside five minutes - David Silva unable to mark his 300th City appearance with an early goal as Jakupovic reacted instinctively to make a fine save.

City remain in fourth spot following the victory, seven points ahead of Arsenal who play on Monday, while Hull remain 17th, two points clear of danger.

In the Spaniard's defence, the squad he has taken on at City does not have the spread of world-class talent that he worked with at Barcelona and in Munich, but there have been many signs that the competitive nature of the Premier League has taken him by surprise.

Guardiola has vowed to improve in 2017-18 but admits he is hugely frustrated that he failed to act on concerns he spotted in the 6-0 aggregate win over Steaua in the Champions League play-off round. Claudio Bravo was back in goal for Man City, after some blamed Willy Caballero for the goals they conceded in midweek, but the Chilean did little to silence his doubters. They've gone W1-D2-L12 on the road this term, failing to score in 10 of 13 winless matches recently, of which 12 were defeats.

The Portuguese said he was happy in East Yorkshire and with the progress his side had made, but refused to commit himself to the club beyond this season.

The commission functions similarly to a grand jury and will decide if there is probable cause that Bentley broke the ethics law. Twenty-three lawmakers a year ago filed impeachment articles against Bentley accusing him of corruption and neglect of duty.

It was his 28th goal of the season and his 10th in his last 10 games.

Marco Silva's side face Stoke, Watford and Southampton in their next three games but the Portuguese had few complaints about the latest result.

It's not an easy start with Manchester City this weekend but the run in does feature winnable games. "We have to be honest with ourselves, we were not good enough to compete for the Premier League".

Champions League winners Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola are the only managers to win their first six Premier League matches. "But at this moment all of us are focusing on our goal".

48' - GOAL! Manchester City 2-0 Hull City (Aguero).

Spurs has combined its faultless home form with away victories in recent weeks and has stretched its advantage over fifth-placed rival Arsenal to 14 points.
