Stars playing for their Man City futures, says Guardiola

The Brazil striker underwent surgery after fracturing a metatarsal in City's Premier League victory at Bournemouth in February.

"We have not had many days to prepare for the game, but the same goes for Manchester City".

The symbol of Chelsea's collapse last season, Eden Hazard has spearheaded the revival under Antonio Conte.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola warned his under-achieving squad that they are playing for their futures at the Etihad Stadium.

The defeat to Palace has not unduly concerned Conte.

'Today they answered those critics straight away with a really professional, well-thought-out performance, got the goals at great times, Hazard... exceptional tonight, the way they played was a team that was experienced, who wanted to get the job done.

"When you are lucky enough to fight for the title there is the pressure, but not only for us, for a lot of teams. Chelsea were underdogs at the start of the season, but now we are top and we want to keep this position".

Company offers body cameras to every cop in the US
The company may have initially made its name with the Taser device, but the move towards body cameras has been a lucrative one. And the prospect of having more police departments sign on after their yearlong trial probably isn't a bad look either.

Hardy Boyz return to WWE in WrestleMania 33
In their first match back in seven years, the Hardy Boyz were able to capture the belts from atop the ladder. Matt and Jeff Hardy returning to the WWE seemed like the secret that wasn't exactly hidden.

The result extended their current unbeaten run to eight league games - the longest such sequence of Guardiola's tenure - but the last three of those matches have all been drawn. However, the Nigerian worldwide took part in training today so I'm expecting him to come back in to the side on the right. "We have to take as many points as possible and we will see".

"To handle a situation at 1-0 (up), we are not comfortable, not yet. It is a process to improve and we are still in the process, and we must improve in those terms".

Jesus Navas was again at right-back, but Chelsea's opener came down the other flank.

With news of Tottenham's late revival in Wales filtering through, there was palpable tension in the air and a huge sigh of relief swept Stamford Bridge in stoppage time when City defender John Stones blazed over with the goal gaping.

Gabriel Jesus has returned to training with Manchester City seven weeks after breaking a bone in his foot.

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses is a major doubt after missing the Palace game with a calf strain, which saw Pedro fill in on the right flank.

Chelsea beat City 3-1 in the reverse fixture in December - an ill-tempered contest in which Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho were sent off and players and coaching staff from both teams were involved in a melee on the touchline.
