Eliaquim Mangala ready to fight for starting place at Manchester City

Man City GFX

Elsewhere, Liverpool will hope to end a run of two straight defeats at Leicester and Arsenal will be out to make it seven straight home victories over West Brom.

Pep Guardiola has dismissed suggestions that the Premier League is a two-horse race between the Manchester clubs.

However, the tournament has always been seen as secondary to the FA Cup in England, and its importance has gradually diminished over the last two decades as the top sides started to rest their key players until the latter stages.

"Business is business, but we have a lot of games", Guardiola said at a press conference on Friday ahead of the Palace match.

Manchester City and Manchester United are now looking down at the rest of the league, both on 13 points and still unbeaten. [If] you have to play the competition, you have to play the competition.

He said: "You can imagine going against a Tony Pulis team and playing 90 minutes in those conditions, then you spend three or four hours on the bus".

City take on struggling Crystal Palace at the Etihad tomorrow in game they will be confident of claiming another three points in.

"When we finish our weekend we analyse what is going to happen in the future but nobody knows".

"He's had a long career and I respect that".

Hughes, though, feels the competition is still a worthwhile one to those teams outside of the very biggest Premier League teamse.

"Definitely not", he joked when asked if he would be still a coach. I promise you. I love golf!

"I think (Mourinho) is just talking in terms of their ambitions", Hughes said.

"It was my first start [at West Brom], but it is hard when you haven't played for a long time".

"I want to help the team when they need me - even when I don't play I will support my mates and help them to be confident, to help in training".

"In football so many things can happen, but I am just here to enjoy, to play and be part of this fantastic squad - and hopefully to win some titles".
