Pep Guardiola has the flawless solution to Man City's penalty woes… Ederson!

Kyle Walker has said he would love to return to Sheffield United to end his career Kyle Walker has said he would love to return to Sheffield United to end his career

Sergio Aguero stepped off the bench to secure a 1-0 win for Manchester City after Dean Henderson had threatened to frustrate the Premier League champions at Bramall Lane.

Laporte, City's best defender, was roughed up by Sheffield United's players - the Frenchman was taken out by Mo Besic in a risky tackle and then elbowed to the ground attempting to defend a corner, both in the first half - but left the field in the 78th minute with City's clean sheet intact. I know what it's like to play here, it is a tough tough place.

"I am so happy with the team".

"Some games are good, we concede few".

"In the first half we were a little bit shy to play, but in the second half we were a little bit more like we are".

"What Sheffield United do, they do it perfectly".

Substitute Sergio Aguero tapped in from Kevin De Bruyne's sublime cross - the Belgian's 15th assist of the season - to earn City victory, but the biggest boost of the night for the visitors was Laporte's first start since he suffered a knee injury in late August. They've been together for five years so their spirit is so good.

"It's always good to come back here, I come back and watch when I can but it was important to bounce back from the weekend".

There was one worrying moment early in the game when he was caught by a crude tackle by Mo Besic, with the City defender later posting a tweet of the challenge with the caption: "I missed you too Premier League".

Both City players featured in the draw with Roy Hodgson's side at the Etihad where Sergio Aguero struck twice but failed to take full points for his team.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder suggested a moment of brilliant from Kevin De Bruyne had cost his side a point, as he set up Ageruo's victor with a fine assist. "It's a great finish".

"It was hard for me (being out), my team-mates see me suffering", he added. Pep Guardiola had freshened up his tactics in the New Year, moved his players around like chess pieces... then went back to the kind of set-up that has struggled to break down Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, Manchester United and Newcastle United? When opportunities arise you have to show a little bit of quality and we didn't do that sadly. "We've worked really hard to get here, we want no regrets and I don't think there were tonight".
