Guardiola: I want Manchester City to be a Premier League machine

Virgil van Dijk rues a draw at The Hawthorns

We knew it would hard to achieve points if we got one it would be a big bonus because nobody achieves points here except Manchester United.

While they seem well on course to beat the record haul of 95 points achieved by Mourinho's Chelsea in 2004/05, many a keen football fan may readily admit feeling the heart stir at the prospect of watching City play live.

There was also at least one flare let off among the fans as security moved hurriedly to ensure players could leave the field safely, with City captain Vincent Kompany and French global Benjamin Mendy the last players to leave for the safety of the dressing rooms.

"If they are happy I like to be close with the team".

Silva's opening goal made him the sixth City player to reach double figures this season - following Sergio Aguero, Sterling, Jesus, Leroy Sane and De Bruyne.

Kevin De Bruyne's delightful curving pass picked out Raheem Sterling's clever run and his pull back was ruthlessly dispatched by David Silva.

The Spain playmaker was the conductor-in-chief on a day City's players were given a guard of honor as they walked onto the field and were serenaded with songs throughout the latest one-sided game involving Guardiola's side.

But that magnificent league form contrasted with the Champions League, in which City were emphatically beaten 5-1 on aggregate by rivals Liverpool in the quarter-finals, and their manager insisted his club was still some way from being able to compete for that prize.

Quiet to finish the weekend; rain returns next week
Areas of rain are scheduled to begin morning Monday and then continue at times through at least Tuesday . Once we hit Thursday , we'll be completely rain-free and sunny again which will last into next weekend.

Next Ilkay Gündogan played an inadvertent one-two with the referee, Craig Pawson, that allowed the German to find David Silva.

De Bruyne picked up a loose ball and smashed in a rising, angled drive in the 54th for the third goal and the fourth arrived after Sterling was tripped for a penalty.

Jesus did get a goal in the end, heading in the 88th.

The Belgian got on the scoresheet, too, scoring a thunderous effort to cap a man-of-the-match performance for Pep Guardiola's men. I agree with people saying that we have to win more at that level.

"You know [when] you have a clean strike, you feel it, it's very hard for the keeper to catch it". Manager Carlos Carvalhal said the result would have "zero" impact on confidence going into the final few weeks of the season.

Swansea are without a win in five league matches and remain four points above the relegation zone with four games to play.
