Guardiola says he is '100% staying' as Manchester City manager next season

Roy Hodgson and Pep Guardiola

Stones was unable to shepherd Zaha away from danger, the Palace flier instead getting in a low cross that was inadvertently turned into his own net by the luckless Fernandinho.

When asked about his future before City's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, Guardiola said: "Unless they sack me, I am staying, 100 per cent".

Crystal Palace new signing, Cenk Tosun, opened the score five minutes before half time after an awesome pass from Gary Cahill.

Roy Hodgson took a swipe at Pep Guardiola by insisting the only thing there is for him to learn from the Catalan is how "to lose".

City boss Pep Guardiola accepted last month his side could no longer catch runaway leaders Liverpool but there are still three other trophies to play for, including the Champions League.

Guardiola was impressed with Benjamin Mendy who was a constant attacking threat along City's left flank.

It was City's third draw of the season and, combined with their five defeats, their bid for a third straight title now seems to be mostly a case of hoping for a miracle.

The underside of the crossbar saved them from going a goal down from Kevin de Bruyne's excellent long-range free-kick. "We've dropped points, we conceded and didn't win games", Guardiola told reporters on Friday.

"They defended so deep".

Tosun, who scored the opening goal on his first start for the club, arrived from Everton this January and appeared to fit perfectly into this Palace line-up alongside Wilfried Zaha.

"To score was a great feeling as a striker needs confidence and confidence comes with scoring goals".

"You don't always create clear-cut chances against Newcastle - fair play to them, they defend with everything - but we absolutely controlled it", Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said.

"It is a great feeling to score a goal in my first game, but more than the goal was the point and this is what mattered today", he added.
