Burnley fought valiantly to share points with runaway English Premier League leaders, Manchester City in the match played today at Turf Moor.

Aiming for a first away league win in three, City nearly added a second goal early in the second half as Sergio Aguero blasted into the back of substitute Matt Lowton from a good position and Ilkay Gundogan's attempt deflected over. De Bruyne played in Kyle Walker with a wonderful through ball, before Walker's cross found Sterling unmarked, two yards away from an open goal.

Matt Lowton's deep cross didn't look particularly risky, but Walker lost sight of Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who got in front of his marker and finished emphatically on the half-volley.

Kevin De Bruyne admits that he and his Manchester City teammates "feel rubbish" due to their gruelling schedule across the opening six months of the season.

The Chile global saw his penalty saved in the 68th minute but scored when the ball richocheted off goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

- Manchester City have failed to win a Premier League game after scoring first for the first time in 26 matches, since a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in April 2017.

La Liga: Real Sociedad 5 (Willian Jose 32, Illarramendi 62, 89, Canales 75, Elustondo 82) bt Deportivo La Coruna 0.

"We don't have any more players".

"But I'm so happy for the performance, it was outstanding overall".

But, the real test begins now, says Rahul Dravid
Since an ICC event is incomplete without an India vs Pakistan encounter, the U-19 World Cup saw one too, in the semi-finals. As for the present, though, Dravid was pleased, especially because India went through the campaign undefeated.

"This is a tough league with no easy games".

Television replays showed the goal should have been ruled out for offside, although the visitors could hardly claim the decision made a huge difference to the match. We need to score the second, third and fourth when we have the chance.

"We knew we would have to take our chances".

However, two of the six subs named by Guardiola were youngsters, 18-year-old Brahim Diaz who came on for Raheem Sterling, and Tosin Adarabioyo, 20.

That's sort of what Manchester United have lacked - players around (Romelu) Lukaku who are going to push him on and help him score more goals.

Jack Cork lobbed an inviting cross into the City area for captain Ben Mee to connect with a 12-yard volley which Ederson saved well and the Burnley defender also threatened when he rose to meet a corner from Gudmundsson and headed just wide.

The hard-fought draw gave the hosts one of the more memorable results of a season that has defied expectations.

Burnley's back four, despite the absence of James Tarkowski, was well drilled and it required patience to break them down. We have to change something.

"We know they like to play football from the back and it's tough to press them".
