Fernandinho hits back at Pep Guardiola complaints over busy fixture list

Sergio Aguero says he plans to see out the remainder of his contract with Manchester City but admits any decision over his future may not be his own.

After 20 games, City have scored 61 goals, the most in the Premier League and allowed the fewest.

Late on, Andre Gray would get one back for the visitors.

City now have Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus on the sidelines, both with knee ligament injuries, while Kevin De Bruyne played on Tuesday despite limping off the field against Palace after a horror tackle from Jason Puncheon.

Aguero missed two chances before halftime, and another soon after the break.

Guardiola was given an early headache as Gabriel Jesus was taken off in tears after suffering a knee injury, and De Bruyne was taken off in injury time following Puncheon's heavy tackle.

Despite being in a commanding position with 17 games remaining, City will be concerned in particular with the injury to Jesus, who limped off in tears with a left leg injury midway through the first half after falling awkwardly.

City are now 15 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United. You know how tough the Premier League is to play but you know you can not relax.

Without a point or a goal after seven games, Crystal Palace is in sight of mid-table in the Premier League after a 2-1 win at Southampton.

And Guardiola was also backed by West Brom boss Alan Pardew, who is furious his side play their second game in the space of two days while their opponents West Ham have had six days rest. Player-for-player, which would you argue was superior? "I think the schedule will always happen because of the tradition but think about the players - they are artists".

"Please, referees, they have to protect players", the Catalan coach proclaimed. "We were lucky against Tottenham and against Newcastle".

"We have three or four days until the next game so we will see what Pep is going to do but for sure every player is going to be ready if he needs them to play", Fernandinho told reporters.

Premier League clubs still in the title race will now have a sigh of relief and hope those injuries slow Man city down.

"It's my seventh year here, I know a bit about the league and the most important thing is to win points in December, and we have done that very well".
