Neville admits it's 'painful' watching 'brilliant' Man City and Liverpool

He said: "It is hard for the players to ignore the hype surrounding Liverpool's long wait for a title, but the overwhelming majority of them won't let the weight of expectation affect them".

"The Premier League is still in our hands", said City manager Guardiola. "That is why, not just for the two assists that were so important, but for all the other situations that we needed, he is so important for us in winning the game".

Any positive result for Palace would surely be welcomed by Liverpool fans, who are waiting for City to slip up in their remaining Premier League games.

If Palace manage to achieve an upset victory yet again, they would have completed a double over City for the first time since the 1972-73 season.

"I'm so pleased", Guardiola said.

El papa traslada al obispo nicaragüense Silvio Báez a Roma
Para el escritor Sergio Ramírez, nicaragüense ganador del Premio Cervantes 2017, la designación de Báez al Vaticano representa un "exilio forzado" además de ser un "duro golpe" para la nación.

Asked how we'll approach a game against a team whose Premier League fate has already been sealed, Mauricio replied: "Always with all the respect".

Guardiola attracted criticism for what was seen as a conservative team selection against Spurs in midweek, leaving both Kevin de Bruyne and Leroy Sane on the bench until the final minute, while peripheral figures Fabian Delph and Riyad Mahrez started.

After Palace, City host Tottenham twice in four days in the second leg of their Champions League tie and the Premier League.

City had avoided it for 80 minutes but all of a sudden their victory, one that had looked so assured, was in doubt. Liverpool returned to the top of the table by beating Chelsea and City are two points adrift with a game in hand.

And former Premier League striker Efan Ekoku knows it can be hard to ignore the pressure. That is some boost at this stage of the campaign, and Guardiola was effusive in his praise of a player who, even in such a richly talented squad, noticeably raises City's level when on song. "If we win the last six games then we will be champions".
