​Sunderland forward Borini plots Man City downfall

Fabio Borini has challenged bottom of the table Sunderland to expose the flaws in Pep Guardiola's Manchester City defence when they meet on Sunday.

He told the club's official website: "They seem a little shaky at the back because of the way Guardiola wants them to play - but don't take that as a criticism because that's the way he's won titles in the past.

"He has his philosophy and that won't change this weekend, so we have to take advantage of that in any way we can.

"We need to frustrate them and if that means we have to be defensive, then so be it because we have to stop their influence on the game."
