Guardiola hoping Kompany stays fit after ending goal drought

"Sometimes when you realise you can not lose, when you feel the pressure, the real pressure because you would be so criticised, the players make a step forward", he said.

Everton are reported to be showing an interest in Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany, who faces an uncertain future.

Guardiola says he is enjoying his first season in English football and has praised his "amazing" employers for doing everything to support him.

And want nothing more than Kompany to stay fit for the rest of the season. I know how important he is to the fans because of what he has done.

When asked how his team compares to the last eight in the Champions League, which includes Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Barcelona, he said: "We are far away".

"We were finally able to make 20-25 passes and create many chances".

"We scored from the set-piece".

Stephen Colbert and 'Stephen Colbert' Milk the Firing of Bill O'Reilly
It's a measure of how competitive MSNBC has become in prime time that Guilfoyle used Maddow's name on Fox News's air. There are many offices these days where pulling a Clinton, Trump or O'Reilly will get you summarily canned.

That's right, the fleet-footed youngster, who has played as an attacker for his entire career, could be used in an orthodox role for Die Mannschaft but, speaking to Manchester Evening News, Sane is not exactly keen on the idea.

Guardiola's men also have the FA Cup to look forward to, with a game against Arsenal scheduled in the semi-finals next weekend.

Southampton have shown good steel of late, however, losing just one of their last six matches prior to this weekend, and they almost snatched a leveller when defender Yoshida peeled off at the back post but sent his header straight at Claudio Bravo.

With two Premier League titles to his name as well as more than 300 appearances for City, captain Kompany has been vital for the club ever since his 2008 move from Hamburg, though injuries have dampened his impact in recent years.

They could register three Premier League wins in a row for the first time under Claude Puel.

"This result is so important for our qualification for the Champions League", he told BBC Sport. "Today we saw again how good they are so they are not going to drop points". Up front we could be better, but our quality of play meant we had control.

There's a youthful theme to Tuesday's media round-up, with the newspapers carrying stories on Manchester City youngsters Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus.
