Guardiola has selected Brazil global Fernandinho as one of his two central defenders for every Premier League game since then and insists he has no intention of stopping.

Manchester City manager Pep GuardiolaWhat are the odds? "I prefer him in that position; that's why he plays".

City led twice at St James' Park, but on both occasions were pegged back as they were held to a 2-2 draw, in the process allowing Liverpool to increase their lead at the top of the table to 11 points.

Asked why Stones and Nicolas Otamendi are not now trusted together, Guardiola said: 'Because I like 'Dinho in that position a lot.

The 34-year-old Brazil midfielder, who has been deployed as a centre-back this season, sees his current deal expire in June 2020.

"So I think we have to think about what we have to do to win the games and play quite similar to how we played in our [previous] games, especially the last one against Newcastle or the last 20, 25 minutes against Chelsea".

Speaking ahead of City's Premier League visit to Burnley on Tuesday, Guardiola said: "I don't want any players in January".

Jackson, Ravens beat 49ers 20-17 to extend win streak to 8
Both the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints , hot on the tails of San Francisco in the conference standings, won in Week 13. Jackson has a go-for-the-jugular mentality, wanting every drive to end with a touchdown, regardless of the score.

"It's good they believe it [that the race is still on]".

"Normally the players we could think it would be interesting to add something for our squad they are not going to sell it". They are incredible. They take of themselves perfectly, have an incredible unit.

Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva created the second for Jesus five minutes after the break with a cross to the back post which the striker, who had not scored in his previous 10 games for club and country, met with a clinical finish. "Of course we have to replace them [if they leave]".

Asked what defensive qualities in particular Fernandinho has, Guardiola said: "Have you watched the games?"

Aguero got the victor on their previous visit to Turf Moor towards the back end of last season with a scrappy finish that barely crossed the line but put City within two wins of their second consecutive Premier League title.

We put a healthy pressure on our shoulders to say we can achieve this, and we can claw back points and close the gap.

'In the situation we are in we can not think about the people who are in front.
