Pep Guardiola enjoying his 'Fergie time'

  • David Silva celebrates after scoring Manchester City's winner against West Ham

The Spain playmaker, who scored the late victor in the Premier League leaders' victory over West Ham on Sunday, is being rested for the Group F game in Kharkiv.

As we all know by now and have know for a while, this is the week of the Manchester Derby, but Manchester City still have one game to go before what could be the defining moment of the season for Pep Guardiola and his men.

"It was similar to the last few games, in the second half I thought we would score".

West Ham welcome crosstown rivals Chelsea to the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon for a Premier League clash.

He combated West Ham's defensive strategy by replacing Danilo for striker Gabriel Jesus at half-time, and switching his system from 4-3-3 to 4-2-4, with the Brazilian alongside Sergio Aguero up front and Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane operating on the wings.

"Today I learnt a bit like a manager to tackle it different", he said.

"It's a big victory", Guardiola told the BBC. I am so pleased to see them playing that well.

As expected, City dominated possession but the mass ranks of West Ham defenders frustrated their array of attacking players and disrupted the rhythm of their intricate, threaded passes.

David Moyes' side began to tire and City's persistence paid off with just seven minutes remaining when Silva acrobatically volleyed Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant, lofted pass into the far corner of the net, giving the recalled Adrian no chance. Most of their shots were from outside the box and we filled the box and made it hard for them to score. We spoke a lot about defending set-pieces but they are taller. Some of the games we've had this season, I don't think we've been as good as that.

Guardiola expects an aerial bombardment from United after seeing his side concede another goal from a set-piece.
