Chelsea, Liverpool & Tottenham To Battle Over £25m Premier League Star

As well as key games in the race for a top-four spot in the league, City also have an FA Cup semi-final showdown with Arsenal at Wembley to look forward to later this month, with the Blues looking to recapture the famous trophy they last won in 2011.

United, who are four points behind fourth-placed Liverpool with two games in hand, are back in league action at home to West Brom on Saturday. Guardiola's pride in his players' endurance - matching that of a typically tireless Liverpool just a few days after Champions League despair against Monaco - wasn't entirely misplaced.

He said: "Generally I'm very satisfied, we don't try and prove points but it's fair to say no one gave us a chance, and we're in good shape".

At their current rate of progress, Chelsea will be close to securing the Premier League title by the time they visit Old Trafford, but Mourinho will want United to halt his former club's march to the championship and that extra motivation, combined with a noisy crowd, could see the home team gain a crucial three points.

"From the beginning of the season, we have all the trophies in our minds", he said. But how many games will the visitors have in their legs by then and can they win at one of the most hard away venues in the Premier League? We should be the last team to play in the weekend - it is as simple as that'.

Garcia has made seven appearances for City this season, impressing every time he's been given an opportunity with his vision and ability to pick a pass from a position just in front of the back four.

The pair were firm friends despite frenzied media speculation willing for a fiery falling out after an incident at the 2006 World Cup, and they ultimately went from strength to strength and scored 105 Premier League goals between them in three seasons from 2006 to 2009.
