Willy Caballero Starts - Manchester City Team vs Sunderland Confirmed

Pep Guardiola's tactics make Manchester City vulnerable at the back according to Fabio Borini

City's 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light moved them to within eight points of Antonio Conte's side, who travel to West Ham on Monday night and then face City on April 5. We are there behind Chelsea, who are nearly unstoppable.

"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".

Everton's first defeat in 10 league games saw them stay seventh and remain tantalisingly close to European qualification, although they are still five points adrift of sixth-placed Manchester United.

Pep Guardiola began his English adventure pitting his wits against Sunderland on the opening day of the season and now, seven months later, he travels to Wearside this weekend with his side looking formidable in their quest for league, cup and European glory.

Sunderland boss David Moyes has admitted that Manchester City are a frightening team to play against, but insists that they are not unstoppable ahead of his teams match against the Citizens on Sunday.

"Manchester City keep you under that much pressure that when you do get it you have to be fearless enough to play".

But they did after 41 minutes when Yaya Toure carried the ball forward and Silva played in Sterling, who crossed low for Aguero to finish. We played good. Our build up was much better. We've got games coming up - we don't have to show it, we have to do it.

"[But] we are so happy".

However, it was the Black Cats who enjoyed the better of the first half and they could have been forgiven for feeling aggrieved as they left the pitch 1-0 down at the break.

"With this talent it would be a pity if we didn't try to help him to fulfil all this potential that he has".

"I think we're probably going to have to have to win one or two of these games in the run-in, so why not this one!"

Caballero saved from Seb Larsson moments later as Sunderland looked for a quick response, but City were in total control as Sunderland failed to cut the six-point gap between themselves and safety. I don't think you can fault the players for any of that.

"I hope our players understand the position that we're in, but we're not panicking".
