Silva, who scored the pivotal victor against West Ham United on Sunday, was left out of the City squad that travelled to Kharkiv for their final Champions League group game against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Nemanja Matic will return against Manchester City in this weekend's derby clash at Old Trafford.

City will make the short journey to OldTrafford on Sunday to face their arch-rivals, who are now one place behind and eight points behind them in the league. It did, however, contribute to their first loss of the season.

"If we lost two out of three and they win everything, they are there".

For large periods on Sunday, however, City were frustrated by an organised West Ham but their sheer will to win proved too much for the Hammers as Guardiola's side restored their comfortable lead ahead of next weekend's Manchester derby.

That Beijing would use seduction, corruption and coercion to promote its interests is neither surprising nor unique. Australia expressed deep concern last month over a crackdown on pro-democracy groups in Cambodia.

Madrid finished the 2011-12 season as champions and Guardiola, worn out by the constant sniping, stepped down at Camp Nou and would not resurface at Bayern Munich for another year. "We didn't have any rhythm because West Ham goalkeeper Adrian was taking 30 seconds every time". I thought most of it was outside the box. City eventually finished third as United trailed home in sixth place, but Mourinho could reflect on the season with greater satisfaction after leading his team to a League Cup and Europa League double.

Being a dead rubber from City's perspective, Ederson's error wasn't exactly a disaster for them.

Angelo Ogbonna's opener for West Ham came directly from a corner, as did the goal that City conceded against Huddersfield last week, while Southampton troubled them from set pieces during the week.

The two tactical masterminds have a very good relationship and spoke highly of each other before and after City and Napoli's Champions League showcases - both of them won by the English club.

"Manchester City are one of the best teams in Europe, if not the world, to watch at the moment", Mills told Sky Sports News. No stories of Lacazette, David Silva.
