They got a goal in the last 10 minutes and never stopped believing.

Sean Dyche was in a buoyant mood after his side snatched a well-deserved point late on against Manchester City, and praised Burnley's ability to stay in the game when the league leaders were on top.

Somehow Burnley were still in the game and they came close to levelling when a fine Lennon strike was pushed against the woodwork by Ederson.

City are in action in three other competitions before the month is out as they travel to face Basel in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, face third-tier Wigan in the FA Cup fifth round and Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final on February 25. "I'm sad for the players because we played so well", he said.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany praises Burnley for getting "what they fought for" in Saturday's 1-1 draw between the Clarets and the Citizens at Turf Moor. "I can not say we, Tottenham or Chelsea [THIRD] is doing bad because the points we have is very reasonable".

"No, not for that reason". Today he missed one chance. He covers all sport from football, formula one, cricket, rugby, tennis, athletics, mma and wrestling.

"It was not just Raheem, it was a lot".

After initially being out of favour, the veteran Ivory Coast midfielder became central to Guardiola's plans last term but, with City dominating the Premier League title race, it has been a different story this time around.

'He's an absolutely incredible manager, the work he has done with this team is unbelievable and the team performances absolutely outstanding. "That changed the feeling, the stadium erupted, everyone came with us", said Dyche. The biggest and easiest chance of the game was missed by City's striker Raheem Sterling, who in the 70 minute failed to find the target from six yards out after meeting Kyle Walker's cross at the far post.

But Guardiola defended his decision, saying he had no more senior players and with his Under-23 team having played on Friday he did not want to call up a player from that squad. Mahrez's potential signing was the biggest that fell through, but in the past, we've seen some pretty insane things happen when clubs attempt to sign a player on deadline day only to see the deal fall through. Forget the fact of how much money they've spent, six players on the bench is like a protest.

City are now missing David Silva, John Stones, Leroy Sane, Fabian Delph, Gabriel Jesus and Benjamin Mendy but the lack of a youth player to fill the seventh spot meant no one was buying it.
