Guardiola hails City spirit

Pep Guardiola has praised his Manchester City players for fighting until the death after they scored another late winner on Sunday.

Speaking after the 2-1 win over the Hammers, Guardiola also said he would be delighted to be crowned the new king of 'Fergie time' after the late strike.

City equalled the Premier League record of 13 consecutive victories with a 2-1 success at the Etihad Stadium and have a chance to break new ground against their rivals at Old Trafford on Sunday.

There have been romps and thrashings along the way but their past four matches have all been settled in the final 10 minutes, with David Silva's 83rd-minute finish against the Hammers a relatively early decider by recent standards.

And Guardiola is more than happy to take a reputation once owned by Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson, whose sides were renowned for late goals.

"I heard about the Fergie time, I was not here (in England) in that period but of course you have to have that," said Guardiola, whose table-toppers reclaimed their eight-point lead over United.

"What we have shown in the last games is we never give up. If we can take something about the Fergie Time, it is welcome, a pleasure."
