This is how Oasis inspired Manchester City's record-breaking winning streak

This is how Oasis inspired Manchester City's record-breaking winning streak

While grateful for the platform Spurs gave him to launch his top-flight career, Sheffield-born Walker has no regrets about moving back north and believes he has improved at Manchester City due to Guardiola's tutelage and the quality of the players around him.

"It's human nature that a player wants to prove, or have a different challenge", Pochettino told reporters at the club's training ground when asked if he was anxious other members of his squad might be jealous of Walker's big-money move.

City are, after all, in the midst of a record breaking run of 15 successive victories in the English top flight, while they are eleven points clear at the top of the table having found the net on 52 occasions. "No-one is happy. Everyone on the bench wanted to play".

Even in recent weeks when they have often looked worn out, they have so much talent to call upon that in every game, someone has inevitably been able to produce a match-winning contribution where other sides would fail to do so.

"We're going to play, for me, the best team today in Europe, not only in England". We need to carry on in the same way and keep working.

However, the Xbox One version is about six months behind the PC game in terms of development - and unfortunately, it shows. The Xbox One X is priced at $499.

"If we are going to sustain Premier League status, that is a must", he said.

"For me, it's the most important thing to win the game but when I play, I try to help the team". For me, it's about enjoying it. But after you get to a certain age - 28,29, 30 - you need to think more about what is going to happen. I know we can do something special this season. "It's so exciting. It's a massive challenge - the type of challenge you always want the possibility to have".

Brazil and Germany stars Dani Alves and Philip Lahm respectively were Guardiola's right-backs with his previous clubs, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and he puts Walker in the same bracket, especially after the way he subdued the pacy Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the Manchester derby last Sunday. You know very well that my ideas as a manager are close [to Pep] in football. I think that happens in football.

The win meant that Man City have now gone 15 Premier League games without losing, beating the previous record of 14 matches, jointly held by Arsenal in 2002.
