Kevin De Bruyne's performance against Tottenham leaves Pep Guardiola speechless

Antonio Valencia plays for Manchester United versus Brighton in the Premier League

Raheem Sterling was racially abused and kicked at Manchester City's training ground on Saturday morning, according to a report.

City will maintain their place at the top of the table regardless of the result, but will extend their lead to 14 points with a win, at least until Manchester United play West Brom on Sunday.

There were 33 minutes of this game still to play when Pep Guardiola made a decision to withdraw Sergio Aguero and bring on Gabriel Jesus, who subsequently missed a penalty the Argentine would have taken. When Guardiola did find a way to describe the Belgian's impact, it was to emphasise some of the midfielder's work that might not be picked up in television highlights packages.

And Guardiola has heaped more praise on City's £54.5m club-record signing, having previously said he is "one of the best players" he has ever seen in his life.

Rudy Gobert will miss 1 month with knee injury, per report
But there's no doubt that Gobert's presence will be missed as he's the defensive anchor of the team and a walking double-double. Utah Jazz forward/center Derrick Favors (eye laceration) is not available to play on Saturday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"The performance of Kevin de Bruyne, you can not imagine how good he plays with the ball, but he runs like a player in the Conference league - it is easier for the manager and the club".

"When they are outside and see how he runs and fights without the ball, that is the best example and he helps us to be a better club, a better institution for the future".

"All the time he watches the game in his head and then without the ball, he is able to make the pressure from 40 metres (out) to the goalkeeper". Amid talk of City perhaps going the whole season unbeaten, De Bruyne said they were focused purely on their main goal of winning the title.

"Since August we are so happy and I admire the most the way we play without the ball - thank you to the club to provide me with these incredible players", he said. We must learn, because one day we want to be in a position to win the Premier League, but today was a big lesson for us. Without John Stones and Vincent Kompany due to injury, Pep will play Eliaquim Mangala alongside Nicolas Otamendi once again, which could have been a problem but shouldn't be thanks to Mangala's great performances of late.
