Man City will not remain unbeaten - Guardiola

  • GK David De Gea- The Manchester United goalkeeper continues to go from strength to strength and is now seen by many as the best in the world. His display away to Arsenal in December was a masterclass

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola wouldn't completely close the door on a January move for Alexis Sanchez, and again called on referees to protect players after Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne were injured in Sunday's draw at Crystal Palace.

City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne could also be set for a spell out after he left the field on a stretcher.

Jesus faces up to two months out with suspected knee ligament damage, while De Bruyne's injury, not believed to be as serious as his teammate's, will nearly certainly force the Belgian to miss the Watford game.

"We will recover one or two players who were unable to play today before the Southampton game, but after an effort like this you'd wish we could make the amount of changes that Manchester City feel they can always make when you look at the quality of the players they have who aren't playing".

"Here are now more strong teams, a lot of competitions, a lot of games". Maybe Arsene (Wenger) is anxious about that but I tell him many times that 2004 run is for him. "They must protect the players", Guardiola said. They have already punished Oumar Niasse and Manuel Lanzini but Zaha's dive was the worst I have seen this season'.

Despite being one of the club's older players at 31, the Spaniard has been of their best players this season with five goals and eight assists that has leaves the club 14 points clear of second place Chelsea. There is one line but where you go beyond it, that is unsafe.

The draw brought City's 18-game winning streak to an end, but Ederson's stoppage-time penalty save to deny Luka Milivojevic did preserve City's unbeaten Premier League run this season, which now stands at 21 games.

On the transfer front, Guardiola refused to be drawn on whether De Bruyne's injury would influence his pursuit of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez.

Watford is the first test, with Marco Silva's team going into the game having had nearly 24 hours extra rest than City since their defeat against Swansea on Saturday. "But now Alexis is an Arsenal player".

Kyle Walker rarely let Palace's in-form Wilfried Zaha get the better of him, and made more interceptions (three), gained more possessions (13) and sprinted faster (34.69 km/h) than any other City player.

Wayne Hennessey was the first Crystal Palace goalkeeper since Nigel Martyn in May 1993 to keep a Premier League clean sheet against Man City.

The Premier League leaders have a home clash with Watford on Tuesday.
