"I love these games, as you earn all of the rest. You earn the easier games when it all goes your way on nights like this."

  Ranked! The 10 best playmakers in the world The best playmakers – also known as No.10s – combine passing, vision, composure and flair.

Therefore, some of the players on this list start games on the wing, or deeper as part of the midfield. The one thing they all have in common, however, is that they do their best work when they pick up the ball between the opponents midfield and defence, and look to take up central positions around the box when their team is on the ball.

"I would prefer to have results but we have to analyse where we are," he said. "Many injuries, a lack of preparation, no recovery time, and tough games we've played so far.

"But the players gave everything on the pitch. Now we recover and think about the next game."

There could be more grim injury news for Guardiola, who said Argentine forward Sergio Aguero, who only last week returned after a long lay-off, had picked up a suspected hamstring injury.

The result means United have failed to win any of their opening three home league games in a season for the first time since the 1972/73 season.
