Guardiola's delight at his team's derby win over Manchester United did not stop him from delivering a strong message to Sterling over his showboating at the end of the game. They've started several matches on the back foot this season, needing to trail by a goal or more to kick-start a response.
Chelsea, in 2005, and Leicester City's quite remarkable title success of 2016 are also on there, as are Arsenal's 2001-02 champions. "The last 30 minutes we played really well". The pressure is on City as they are expected to win.
However, United made things hard for themselves with what Mourinho himself described as a "chaotic" first-half display at Bournemouth and needing a famous win in Turin after failing to beat both the Italian champions and Valencia at home in the Champions League.
"I consider the performance of my team one of mistakes rather than a bad performance", Mourinho said.
An Anthony Martial penalty gave United hope of repeating their stunning comeback victory in last season's corresponding fixture, but Ilkay Gundogan ended the contest at the end of a 44-pass move four minutes from time. We made mistakes, we were punished for these mistakes.
Fulham's defeat at Liverpool on Sunday means the Cottagers stay bottom of the table, three points adrift of safety, and they are one of three clubs trading at odds-on - [1.64] in the Relegation market - to be playing Championship football next season.

Kourtney , who was home when the fires broke out, also fled the area with her three children, Mason, Reign, and Penelope Disick. Even outside the evacuation zone, the impact of the fire was being felt by others in the entertainment industry.
To nearly every observer at the Etihad Stadium, the game was controlled by City but the Manchester United manager saw things differently.
The result broke United's momentum after a recent upturn in results.
"There has been a shift in the city over who is the most dominant team and City have the brighter future".
"I think we're not going to be relegated", the Portuguese coach said in his post-match news conference.
"We arrived in different circumstances", said Mourinho. "There was contact between us but I don't know if it was enough for a penalty", he said. "We played like: "I don't want to lose the ball" but not the intention to attack or to do something".
The fact is, Mourinho delivered many excuses as to why United didn't turn up for the derby and why they were dominated by Man City.
United have faced more criticism on the back of a 3-1 reversal against City, with the gulf in class between themselves and the very best being highlighted, but Herrera believes there are positives for them to take heading forward.
