City have also dropped points against the likes Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich City, and Foden has admitted that the club's chances of retaining the Premier League title are out of their hands.

The victory brings Pep Guardiola's side, who had drawn at Newcastle United on Saturday, back within eight points of leaders Liverpool ahead of the Merseyside derby with Everton at Anfield on Wednesday.

"That is not good enough", he said. Of course, it is not good for us.

Often it has been compared to Huawei for a plane full of bullets and mechanical employees working frantically to patch the holes. But with the founder and CEO of Huawei Ren Zhengfei, she is the daughter praised for his year of "suffering".

"He won't be ready for the derby", Guardiola told reporters. "They attack really well and, in defence, they are so aggressive".

Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool team will still see them as a major threat, and rightly so. Sometimes the club wants to try to do the best but sometimes we can not. We have to think about what we have to do to win the games and play quite similar to recent games, especially like Newcastle and, except for 20-25 minutes, against Chelsea. And as soon as we lose that desire to win and think it's done then it definitely is done.

Aguero got the victor on their previous visit to Turf Moor towards the back end of last season with a scrappy finish that barely crossed the line but put City within two wins of their second consecutive Premier League title. The Clarets have scored six of their goals from set plays this season.

It is still far too early to be ruling City out of the title race, given their ability to string together a relentless run of wins.
