Manchester City manager admits his side are some way off the pace set by Liverpool after two title-winning seasonsPep Guardiola accepts he has made life hard for himself at Manchester City with the high standards set in the past couple of seasons but not so hard that he wants to walk away. The Manchester City manager emphatically denied reports he may exercise an escape clause in his contract at the end of the season but conceded his side are struggling “behind an opponent that doesn’t drop points”.By that he meant Liverpool, runaway leaders of the Premier League, though Guardiola was also prepared to concede Leicester, too, have opened up a gap on the defending champions.

The 22-year-old forward quickly developed into a destructive Premier League force and may be in demand this summerNow the transfer market is hotting up, we should talk about Harvey Barnes. You can bet some of the best clubs in Europe are doing exactly that, trying to brainstorm ways of persuading Leicester to sell an exceptional forward before his value soars beyond reach, if it has not already. There has been constant yakking about the attractiveness of James Maddison, Ben Chilwell and Wilfried Ndidi to Champions League participants, but Barnes belongs in that conversation too.When Barnes is on his game, he is one of those thrilling players who show that being creative first means being destructive. He is not in the same class as the 24-year-old Adama Traoré but he is not far off and at 22 is ahead of where the Wolves man was at the same age in terms of impact on the Premier League. Both players can make even the sturdiest defenders looks like old gates flapping in a storm. They are rapid, powerful, skilful and audacious and there is every reason to believe Barnes is as committed to improving and as receptive to good coaching as Traoré is. It takes clever men to cause as much chaos as these two regularly do.
