Raheem Sterling hat-trick boosts Manchester City

Premier League confirms investigation of Manchester City

Two goals of their own before half-time set things right and, despite a Burnley strike right at the death, Liverpool spent much of the afternoon in control.

At the bottom of the table Newcastle's unbelievable 3-2 win over Everton - a game in which they were 0-2 down and still 1-2 down entering the final 10 minutes - has given them a bit of a cushion above the relegation zone, though Burnley's defeat at Anfield on Sunday means it's looking extremely likely that the Clarets will be in a survival fight for the rest of the season. "Impossible. Except if they sack me and after I go home".

Javi Gracia made seven changes to his Watford starting eleven but the visitors proved miserly opponents as they frustrated Pep Guardiola's defending champions during the opening 45 minutes.

Even though referee Paul Tierney and his assistant took time to arrive at their decision, Guardiola believes taking that element out of the hands of on-field officials will help when VAR is rolled out in the Premier League next season.

"I think to compare [us] with those teams - one [trophy] doesn't change it - we are teenagers in this competition", Guardiola told a news conference.

"Schalke only have to score two goals so we shouldn't feel too comfortable".

Raheem Sterling struck a second half hat-trick as champions Manchester City put pressure on title rivals Liverpool with a 3-1 win over Watford at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Manchester City are without suspended pair Nicolas Otamendi and Fernandinho.

I have to be careful not to push this, to give him a chance to get in game shape. "His knee is going to be OK", Krzyzewski said. Wade's One Last Dance tour made a stop at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, even though Williamson wasn't on the court.

"For me, he is one of the best wingers in the world".

"There is no decision yet otherwise I would have signed or rejected a contract", Gundogan said. I am always open-minded for challenges.

"I think that the more you play it, the better you feel - more comfortable, when you are repeating it every three or four days".

After scoring a brace in Liverpool's Premier League victory on the weekend, African star Sadio Mane became only the fifth player ever to find the back of the net in six consecutive league clashes at Anfield. With this calendar and schedule, we are going to drop points - as few as possible. "My main target at the moment is to go for all the competitions and to be successful".

The win also dented Spurs' hopes in an ever-tighter top-four battle for Champions League places as they remain just three points ahead of nearest pursuers Manchester United, who play at fifth-placed Arsenal on Sunday.

Tottenham reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League in midweek, but are now in grave danger of missing out on that competition completely next season.

City are in a strong position after staging a late comeback to win a dramatic match 3-2 in Germany.
