Manchester City's Sergio Aguero in action with Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori during their Premier League match at Etihad Stadium in Manchester November 23, 2019.

Manchester City's Raheem Sterling thought he had added a late third for his side in a 2-1 win over Chelsea, but his injury-time effort was ruled out for offside in a very tight VAR call, with the player taking to twitter to take out his frustration at the number of overruled goals he had been subject to this season.

And the 24-year-old appears to value Guardiola so highly that he is unwilling to commit to City until his manager's future is resolved.

Roberto Firmino struck for the Reds five minutes from time to give the league leaders the win at Palace, in another crucial must-win game for the title hopefuls.

"He will be out a few games, I don't know exactly [how long], a few weeks but he will be out".

Since the start of last season, Liverpool have scored 38 goals from set-pieces in the Premier League (including penalties) - eight more than any other club.

Jesus, who was sat alongside Guardiola, said: "I am not happy because Sergio is injured".

Jesus admitted it was frustrating to be on the bench regularly but he is not complaining.

"But when I decide to come to City I know it is going to be hard because we have Sergio who is the top scorer of the club and he scores every game". In football I know we want to win but just win once and the other is disaster?
