Pep Guardiola's Manchester City Side 'Have Everything,' Says Frank Lampard

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City Side 'Have Everything,' Says Frank Lampard

Pep Guardiola's side were in control from the early stages in Switzerland, where Ilkay Gundogan broke the deadlock after 14 minutes before Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero extended their lead within nine minutes. Juventus entertained Tottenham Hotspur, and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Yet by the time Boxing Day had arrived, he had started only 10 games, three of which came in the League Cup.

Guardiola should now have the opportunity to rest some of his players for the return leg at the Etihad Stadium with a Carabao Cup final and FA Cup ties coming up in another hectic period.

Next week, Chelsea face Barcelona and Man United travel to Spain for their tie with Sevilla.

Though four goals were scored in each of Tuesday's game, the outcome from both ends was different.

Centre-backs Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi were unsettled by Oberlin, although penalty claims against the latter found no sympathy from referee Jonas Eriksson.

"At 2-0 down my feeling was so bad", said the Spurs manager.

"We can't deny that our confidence is really high, seeing that we're getting good results, the way we've been playing and scoring", he said.

The pressure on the Italian was eased by a routine 3-0 win over West Brom on Monday, which took Chelsea back into the top four ahead of daunting visits to United and City in their next two league outings. We defended quite well, we were clinical. It was De Bruyne's 19th assist of a stunning season.

Valentin Stocker was the next Basel forward to nearly undo City via the direct route, but the difference in cutting edge was born out once more by Silva's sublime chest control and volleyed finish from Raheem Sterling's chipped 18th-minute cross.

After a track meet opening (City's European rivals can take a bit of solace from this - the Citizens weren't without their shaky moments at the back), Basel succumbed to a corner kick.

But Silva runs to the touchline and stops the ball completely dead before nutmegging a Basel player to find Kevin De Bruyne.

The Citizens are now at the top of the Premier League table, 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester United, with only 11 games left to play.
