Joe Hart due to sign new Manchester City contract Richard Jolly December 5, 2014 MANCHESTER -- Joe Hart is set to sign a new contract with Manchester City imminently. The goalkeeper, whose current deal expires in 2016, has been in talks with the Premier League champions for several months about an extension. And manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed he expects the 27-year-old to give the club a boost by putting pen to paper soon. "I always said it is important for this club to keep Joe with us," Pellegrini said in a news conference. "He is a very good goalkeeper and not only a very good goalkeeper, he is a very important player for the squad also, so maybe in the next days you will have good news." Hart will become the seventh City player to sign a contract extension this year after Aleksandar Kolarov, Samir Nasri, Vincent Kompany, David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko. The former Birmingham loanee has made 275 appearances for City since his arrival from Shrewsbury in 2006. Pellegrini dropped Hart for a ...

Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea Lampard denied former club Chelsea a victory over Manchester City with a late equaliser in an entertaining 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium. Jose Mourinho's men looked set to repeat the 1-0 Barclays Premier League victory they earned at City last season after Pablo Zabaleta was sent off and Andre Schurrle netted from a brilliant counter-attack. But substitute Lampard ensured the points were shared between the two title contenders as he netted late on. Lampard, who scored 208 goals in 626 matches for Chelsea before departing in July, had his name sung by the visiting fans after his introduction for Aleksandar Kolarov late in the second half. Those tributes were soon replaced by silence, however, as the 36-year-old, who is on loan at the Etihad Stadium from New York City, grabbed an equaliser for the 10-man hosts. The goal ended Chelsea's 100% start to the league season, and Mourinho will rue the missed opportunity to have gone eight points clear of one of their rivals for the titl ...
Tactical Review: Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea BY KEITH SATUKU Manchester City tactics: This was a must-win game for Manuel Pellegrini and he boldly set his side to attack Chelsea from a variety of sources. In addition to City’s intricate play through the middle, Pellegrini started with Aleksandar Kolarov at left-back in place of Gael Clichy to take advantage of the Serbian’s quality crosses into the box. In possession, both Pablo Zabaleta and Kolarov had to push forward to provide width in attacks but with slightly different offensive roles. While Zabaleta needed to link up with James Milner to create two-on-one overloads on the right flank, Kolarov needed to just push forward and use his exceptional crossing ability to provide service from the left flank. Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala had to hold a high line at the halfway line to keep play in the attacking half. In midfield, Yaya Toure needed to drop closer to the central defenders in the centre circle to dictate play from a deeper position, t ...
Transfer news: Vincent Kompany hails Manchester City's summer business Vincent Kompany has saluted Manchester City's summer business, with fresh faces acquired and new deals agreed. Four additions have been made at the Etihad Stadium, with Eliaquim Mangala, Fernando, Willy Caballero and Bacary Sagna joining the Premier League champions. Their arrival will help to add depth to a squad already brimming with world-class talent. They will also help to complement key men on Manuel Pellegrini’s books. City have worked hard to ensure that the core of a successful side has been retained, with Samir Nasri, Aleksandar Kolarov, Sergio Aguero and club captain Kompany agreeing contact extensions. It feels like a productive window for those in the City camp, with old and new pulling in the same direction.
PL PREVIEW FOR 17th August Newcastle - Man City 20:45 NST This is the reverse of last season's opening Barclays Premier League fixture when Newcastle United lost 0-4 at the Etihad Stadium. The Citizens have won four and lost none of their last five opening weekend league fixtures, keeping four clean sheets in the process. Newcastle have won just once in the last five seasons in their opening match (D2 L2). The Magpies have failed to score in their last three Barclays Premier League clashes with Manchester City. Man City full backs Aleksandar Kolarov (7) and Pablo Zabaleta (6) assisted more goals than any other defenders in the 2013-14 Premier League. Frank Lampard is the top scoring midfielder in Premier League history with 171 goals, as many as Aguero, Dzeko, Yaya Toure, David Silva and Vincent Kompany combined. Despite winning only two of their opening eight away games last season, City still ended the campaign with 34 road points. Only Liverpool and Arsenal (35) gained more (Man Utd & Chelsea also coll ...

We met and had pictures taken with Yaya Toure, David Silva, Jesus Navas, Joe Hart, Willy Caballero, Manuel Pellegrini, James Milner, Samir Nasri, Aleksandar Kolarov, Edin Dzeko, Micah Richards & even living legend Christian Karembeu!!! I was amazed at how kind and chill the players were!! Ready to take a picture, give a hug and sign balls and jerseys!! We had an AMAZING time!!! Go Citizens!!!

Liverpool down Man City after shoot-out! Liverpool came from behind twice against Manchester City to triumph in a penalty shoot-out in their friendly in New York on Wednesday. Stevan Jovetic struck a brace, either side of Jordan Henderson's crisp finish for the Reds, before Raheem Sterling equalised in the 85th minute. After normal time finished 2-2, Brendan Rodgers' men were the better side in the shootout, claiming it 3-1 courtesy of two Simon Mignolet saves. Jovetic opened the scoring in the 53rd minute after a defensive stumble from Reds midfielder Steven Gerrard, before Henderson's reply six minutes later. However, the Montenegrin reinstated City's lead in the 67th minute, poking home an opportunistic effort to regain the lead for Manuel Pellegrini's outfit. Sterling struck late in regulation with a well-taken finish, before City crumbled in the shoot-out, as each of Aleksandar Kolarov, Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas all failed to convert from the spot. Jovetic was influential for the Premier League cham ...

Iheanacho: Can he make the grade at Man City? JULY 27, 2014 BY TANA AIYEJINA Leave a Comment kelechi Kelechi Iheanacho, the best player at last year’s U-17 World Cup, seemed destined for greatness after scoring a goal for English champions Manchester City on Thursday, writes ’TANA AIYEJINA Spotting the number 72 jersey, Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho was the undisputed star of Manchester City as the English champions defeated Sporting Kansas City 4-1 on Thursday. There was no doubt who the best player on the day was. With few familiar faces like Micah Richards, Dedryck Boyata, Jesus Navas, Javi Garcia and Aleksandar Kolarov in the starting line-up, the young Nigerian made most of the occasion and ended up with a goal to his name, scored in the 89th minute. It could have been two for the Nigerian striker but a fingertip save from goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum denied him a brace, before he was substituted by Belgian centre-half Jason Denayer, in added time. Close followers of the player have been skeptical ...

Premier League champions Manchester City are set to reward five of their key men with bumper new deals. Joe Hart, James Milner, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko and Aleksandar Kolorov are all set to pen new contracts at the Etihad Stadium. Nasri, who netted in the final day win over West Ham, is keen to extend his stay in Manchester, as is versatile England man Milner. Striker Dzeko, who looked set for a move back to Germany earlier in the campaign, has been offered fresh terms after finding form in the end-of-season run-in. Left-back Aleksandar Kolarov will also extend his three-year stay at the Etihad after being offered a new deal.

Man City 0-0 Villa – HT: Villa stood firm after coming under intense pressure in the first half at the Etihad. There was a big scare in stoppage time as Samir Nasri steered James Milner’s cross inches wide of the near post. And Brad Guzan made important saves to deny Aleksandar Kolarov and Yaya Toure from close range. But Paul Lambert’s team battled heroically and continued to frustrate Manuel Pellegrini’s title-chasers. The visitors launched a couple of decent counter-attacks in latter stages of the half. Andreas Weimann was released by Ashley Westwood but his shot across goal was tipped behind by Joe Hart. Weimann also crossed for Jordan Bowery, who couldn’t make a clean connection with his volley.
Man City 0-0 Villa - 15mins: The home side are dominating possession so far but Villa look well organised. Brad Guzan made two decent saves in the early stages. Firstly, the US goalkeeper got a strong hand to deny Aleksandar Kolarov at the near post. Then he got down quickly to push behind a close-range Yaya Toure effort after Pablo Zabaleta sent a clever cutback into the six-yard box.
CADANGAN Players Week 35 oleh Uncle Nik Argiropoulos : KEEPERS : Joe Hart - Three goals conceded at Anfield on Sunday and a further two against Sunderland last night has triggered Hart's price to plummet to a shade above £10million. Despite Manchester City's current blip, at that price I feel he's the best goalkeeper option for Week 35 with a match against West Brom at the Etihad. Hugo Lloris - Like Hart, goals conceded in Week 34 caused Lloris' price to drop, in this case down to below £6million, making him great value for Tottenham's home game against Fulham. Given the fixtures, Hart and Lloris are the only goalkeepers worth considering this week, unless you're holding Petr Cech at a massive discount. DEFENDERS : Aleksandar Kolarov - It seems Manuel Pellegrini has got in to a selection rhythm; Gael Clichy gets the start in away matches as he's more solid defensively, while Kolarov gets the start in home matches to give the side an extra attacking option down the left hand side. Quiet against Sunderlan ...
Manchester City closed to within a point of Premier League leaders Liverpool after recording a comfortable victory over Southampton at the Etihad Stadium. In a first half overshadowed by what appears to be a serious knee injury sustained by Jay Rodriguez, Yaya Toure put the home side in front from the penalty spot just three minutes in after Jose Fonte had felled Edin Dzeko, but Rickie Lambert brought the Saints level from 12 yards on 37 minutes. But Samir Nasri slotted in a pass from an offside David Silva to put City back in front eight minutes later and Dzeko headed in Aleksandar Kolarov's cross immediately before half-time. City had been clinical rather than dominant in the first half but controlled the match after the break, with substitute Stevan Jovetic adding a fourth nine minutes from time.

Manchester City recorded a comfortable victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford. David Moyes named Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley in the same team for the first time, with Danny Welbeck returning to the side. Rio Ferdinand was fit enough to return at the back. Manuel Pellegrini went for Edin Dzeko ahead of Alvaro Negredo, and Gael Clichy ahead of Aleksandar Kolarov. City started brilliantly, and probably should have won the game within the first 25 minutes. United shape Moyes changed his system completely for this game, and seemed to start with a 4-3-3. This is the first time he’s played this formation with United in the Premier League, and seemed to be a response to City’s system – probably to deny Yaya Toure space and time on the ball. Fellaini was tasked with stopping him in the opening stages, although came out second best, at one point clearly not having the physicality to knock Toure off the ball. Cleverley continues to look nervous in possession and positionally he ...

GOAL - Man City 2-1 Sunderland - Samir Nasri When the going gets tough, the tough get going. This is what the best teams can do, two brilliant goals in one minute and 45 seconds. Aleksandar Kolarov crosses in from the left, the ball is half cleared to the edge of the box and the arriving Samir Nasri crunches in a shot on the bounce, cutting across the ball to slam into the far corner from 20 yards. A brilliant goal again!
Reports in the British Press claim that Napoli could well be targeting a move for Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov. The Guardian write that Partenopei boss Rafa Benitez is an admirer of the Serbia international, and could table an offer in the summer.
Paris (AFP) - Ivory Coast and Swansea striker Wilfried Bony experienced mixed emotions away to Liverpool at the weekend, bagging a brace in a 4-3 English Premier League loss. Compatriot and African Footballer of the Year Yaya Toure was more successful, hitting the goal that gave title challengers Manchester City a 1-0 home win over Stoke City. Arthur Boka was another unhappy Ivorian scorer -- his first goal of the season for German outfit Stuttgart could not prevent a 2-1 home defeat by Hertha Berlin. ENGLAND Yaya Toure (Manchester City) Toure made sure that City kept on the tail of league leaders Chelsea by scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win at home to Stoke City. The Ivory Coast midfielder struck in the 70th minute at the Etihad Stadium, converting a low cross from Aleksandar Kolarov to take his tally for the season to 13 league goals. Wilfried Bony (Swansea City) Bony claimed a brace but finished on the losing side as Swansea went down 4-3 at Liverpool. The Ivorian striker equalised twice, heading home ...
Toby in Kent: Martin Demichelis is a terrible player, however I wouldn't be too worried as a Manchester City fan as the man playing along side him is the best centre-back in the world. Saad Khan: I don't get why everyone is judging Demichelis already? I'm sure his experience will show. Steve Huish in Surbiton: City's line up is like a team playing away.

Manchester City play best when they attack.

Vincent Kompany 6 Chelsea's midfield runners ensured Kompany had no target man, as such, to monitor. Again, lack of midfield protection exposed vulnerabilities and it was an indifferent evening for the skipper. Aleksandar Kolarov 5 Fully occupied in a defensive role had little opportunity to rampage forward. Must have felt like an away game for the Serbian who, along with everyone else in a City jersey, must have been frustrated by Pellegrini's bizarre tactics. Jesus Navas 5 A threat on the ball, but part of City's tactical dilemma without it. Will never track back with the diligence of James Milner and could not impose any authority on midfield, where City were outnumbered. Yaya Toure 6 Formidable in possession. Looked in the mood in the early stages, although his gallops forward are not matched by his ambles back. Seemed to lose his belief, as well as influence, once Chelsea took the lead. Plays to his own drum beat. Martin Demichelis 5 Palpable edginess every time he was in possession. Looked as uneasy ...
After demolishing Spurs 5-1 on Wednesday and with the chance to win four trophies at the end of the 2013/14 season, Manchester City are chasing the improbable target of scoring two centuries of goals in all competitions. The five goals they scored on Wednesday made it 115 goals scored already in 37 games, an average of 3.1 goals per game. And starting next Monday, when they face Chelsea at the Etihad, City have at least 27 matches to play till the end of the season – that is saying they get to the finals of all their cup competitions plus the 15 games they have to play in the Premiership. Their 115-goal haul have been provided by a dozen players – from their two top strikers; Sergio Aguero, who has scored 26 goals to Alvaro Negredo on 23. Substitute striker, Edin Dzeko, has scored 17, while midfield juggernaut, Yaya Toure has weighed in with 15. And what makes the Citizens a fearsome goal-scoring side is that all departments of their play have provided goals. Left-back Aleksandar Kolarov has scored fo ...
WHO'S SCORING ALL THE GOALS? City's 115 goals have come from 12 different players this season. Unsurprisingly, strikers Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo are leading the way but the midfielders have been pulling their weight too - most notably, Yaya Toure has netted 15 times already. Centre back and captain Vincent Kompany is among the goals as well, scoring three times from defence. He isn't the highest- scoring defender at City though. Aleksandar Kolarov has four goals from left back. 1. Sergio Aguero 26 2. Alvaro Negredo 23 3. Edin Dzeko 17 4. Yaya Toure 15 5. Jesus Navas 5 6. Samir Nasri 5 7. David Silva 5 8.

escape scare, Liverpool win Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as Manchester City escaped a huge FA Cup upset by coming from behind to win 4-2 at home to second-tier Watford on Saturday. Beaten Championship play-off finalists last season, Watford went 2-0 up inside 30 minutes through Fernando Forestieri and Troy Deeney to leave free-scoring City at risk of a shock defeat. However, Aguero struck three times in the last half an hour, with Aleksandar Kolarov also on target, to send last season's beaten finalists into the fifth round. With Watford 15th in the Championship, they were given little chance of pulling off an upset at the Etihad Stadium, but they took the lead in the 21st minute when Forestieri beat Costel Pantilimon. It was a reward for the visitors' bold start to the game and nine minutes later they made it 2-0, with Deeney finishing off a sweeping move involving Sean Murray and Ikechi Anya. City manager Manuel Pellegrini sent on defenders Vincent Kompany and Pablo Zabaleta for the second half and ...
Manchester City 3 - 2 Watford: Goal - Aleksandar Kolarov puts it in for Manchester City in the 87' minute
Manchester City beat Newcastle United 2-0 on a controversial afternoon at St James' Park to go top of the Premier League. Edin Dzeko put Manchester City ahead from Aleksandar Kolarov's cross after just eight minutes, but their lead was only intact at half-time thanks to a contentious decision from referee Mike Jones. Cheick Tiote thought he had equalised with a powerful strike into the top corner from the edge of the area, but the goal was disallowed after Jones consulted with his assistant and ruled that Yoan Gouffran was offside and interfering with play. Newcastle kept pushing for an equaliser and Joe Hart had to make several important stops in a fiery second half, when Samir Nasri was stretchered off after a challenge by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa. Alvaro Negredo then grabbed a second on the counter-attack in stoppage-time to lift City above Chelsea and Arsenal. City, fresh from their 6-0 Capital One Cup semi-final first leg demolition of West Ham, started well as Kolarov terrorised Yanga-Mbiwa. It took them j ...
- Sports: Pellegrini Lines Up £30m Move For Luke Shaw. Premier League title favourites Manchester City are prepared to underline their credentials by launching a £30 million January move for Southampton left back Luke Shaw. Despite being just 18 years of age, Shaw is already regarded as England’s long-term successor to Ashley Cole following a series of outstanding top flight displays for the Saints. According to The Mail on Sunday, City would break the world record fee for a fullback of £29.5 million – set in 2008 when Barcelona bought Brazil’s Dani Alves from Sevilla – to land Shaw. Manuel Pellegrini wants to storm a march on other suitors Chelsea and Manchester United by offering the money up front for Shaw in the winter window. Southampton have indicated that one of their prized assets is happy to stay at St Mary’s until the summer, but may consider such a massive offer. City already have Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov to choose from in their squad for the left back berth, but the club ...
CADANGAN PLAYERS utk WEEK 21 oleh uncle Nik Argiropoulos : KEEPERS : Kelvin Davis - Tim Howard - A safer bet is Howard (back from suspension) for Everton with a winnable game at home to Norwich... Hugo Lloris - David Marshall - facing a wretched West Ham side at home, Cardiff stopper Marshall could prove the most balanced keeper pick of Week 21 as he has an good chance of a clean sheet. DEFENDERS : Aleksandar Kolarov - The boy done me good after a last-minute switch to include him in Week 20 once I'd seen the line-ups. It's a bit of a lottery regarding who gets the nod between him and Gael Clichy, but Clichy played last night against West Ham so it appears to be Kolarov's turn against Newcastle. Deadly from free-kicks, he's my pick of the Week 21 defenders and is in my team. Leighton Baines - Kyle Walker - Alvaro Alcaraz - Nacho Monreal - All team news suggests Kieran Gibbs is still out so again, so Monreal will continue at left back for Arsenal's trip to Aston Villa and he represents terrific value at un ...
CITY'S WINNING RUN CONTINUES Manchester City made the ideal start to 2014 as second-half goals from Yaya Toure and Aleksandar Kolarov saw them beat Swansea 3-2 to record a fifth-straight Premier League win. Fernandinho had fired City into an early lead, only for Wilfried Bony to head Swansea level in first-half stoppage time. But Toure put the visitors back in front with his 12th goal of the season and Kolarov got their third with an excellent solo effort. Bony got his second in time added on to give Swansea hope, but City held on. Their previous visits to Swansea had ended in a defeat and a draw but, after a difficult period either side of the break, they recovered to claim victory on this occasion. City have now dropped points in just one of their last nine games and this three points moved them top of the table, at least until Arsenal face Cardiff later this afternoon. It did not take long for Manuel Pellegrini's side to threaten the home goal as Edin Dzeko, Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas combined, wit ...
Manchester United suffered another home defeat to Tottenham, while Arsenal eventually Cardiff 2-0 to retain top spot in the Premier League. It looked like Manchester City would take over after their lunchtime victory over Swansea as the Gunners toiled against Cardiff, who were being watched at the Emirates by prospective new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. But Nicklas Bendtner netted in the 88th minute and Theo Walcott made the points safe in injury time. Manuel Pellegrini's City side have now won seven straight matches and the 3-2 victory at the Liberty Stadium left them a point behind Arsenal. Wilfried Bony cancelled out Fernandinho's 14th-minute opener for City on the stroke of half-time but Yaya Toure put City back in front in the 58th minute. Aleksandar Kolarov seemingly put the game beyond Swansea eight minutes later and Bony's injury-time second came too late to make a difference. Two second-half substitutions proved key in Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Southampton. Oscar was instrumental in the first t ...
Football - Premier League Man City start 2014 with victory at Swansea Liberty Stadium – Swansea (Bony 45+2, 90+1) Manchester City (Fernandinho 14 Toure 58 Kolarov 66) Manchester City kicked off the calendar year with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Swansea in driving rain at the Liberty Stadium to go top of the Premier League. Fernandinho lashed through a crowded penalty area to edge the visitors ahead after Swansea had failed to clear a corner as City started brightly. The hosts grew into the half and equalised in stoppage time when Wilfried Bony headed Angel Rangel’s cross into the bottom corner, although replays suggested the Ivorian striker was offside. But Yaya Toure restored City’s lead shortly after the restart when his shot hit the unfortunate Ashley Williams to take it past Gerhard Tremmel before Aleksandar Kolarov ran from inside his own half and fired home his side’s third. Bony’s late speculative effort threatened an unlikely comeback but City saw out the final minutes to start 2014 w ...
MATCH PREVIEW Swansea VS Manchester City Swansea Swansea boss Michael Laudrup may make a number of changes for the welcome of Manchester City on New Years Day. Wayne Routledge, Leon Britton and Angel Rangel could come in for Roland Lamah, Jose Cañas and Dwight Tiendalli, while Álvaro may be given the nod in place of Wilfried Bony up front. Garry Monk, Nathan Dyer, Michu and Michel Vorm are the Swans' only injury concerns. Manchester City Manuel Pellegrini is expected to rotate for the trip to Swansea as he looks to maintain Manchester City's 8-game unbeaten run. Álvaro Negredo, Samir Nasri, Yaya Touré, Joleon Lescott and Aleksandar Kolarov are all set to return to the starting XI, while Joe Hart will likely keep his place in goal despite suffering a cut under his eye in the win over Crystal Palace. Micah Richards, Sergio Agüero, Stevan Jovetic and Martín Demichelis are set to miss out through injury and David Silva is suspended. Match Facts Man City have won 7 of their last 8 matches in the Premier ...
Manchester City moved up to second in the Premier League table with a 2-1 win over title rivals Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium. • Rodgers blasts refereeing City signalled their intent inside five minutes when Jesus Navas hit the post with a header after a tremendous, whipped cross from Aleksandar Kolarov. But it was Liverpool who took the lead on 24 minutes when Jordan Henderson found Luis Suarez, whose neat flick dropped kindly for Raheem Sterling. The 19-year-old rounded Joe Hart, but his touch was heavy and it was left for Philippe Coutinho to slot home from a tight angle. The lead lasted just six minutes, as Vincent Kompany beat Martin Skrtel to David Silva's corner and the Belgian defender's header crept past Simon Mignolet and Joe Allen on the line. Kompany's goal was his second in two games having found the net against Fulham in City's 4-2 win on Saturday -- a game in which he also scored an own goal. The game looked set to be level at the break when Hart made an outstanding reaction stop from C ...
Zenit St Petersburg are ready to offer Manchester City £8million for defender Aleksandar Kolarov, reports have claimed. City star linked with Zenit The big spending Russians are ready to match City's valuation and pay the player £90,000 a week in order to secure a deal when the transfer window opens next month. Kolarov was a starter on Saturday afternoon as City continued their push for the Premier League title with a 4-2 win at Fulham and Manuel Pellegrini will be reluctant to let him move on. The defender also has 18 months remaining on his current contract so Pellegrini is likely to knock back all bids unless he can line up a replacement first.
Manchester City's Manuel Pellegrini is facing a defensive crisis ahead of their trip to struggling Fulham on Saturday. The Chilean tactician is without a recognised right back with Pablo Zabaleta and Micah Richards both ruled out with hamstring injuries. Pellegrini will have to be a little bit creative with his squad and could play central defender Dedryck Boyata or England midfielder James Milner in their place. It is more likely, though, that he will switch one of his left-backs, Gael Clichy or Aleksandar Kolarov, across as to fill the gap. Pellegrini has also got some concerns at the other end with Sergio Aguero nursing a sore calf and Stevan Jovetic unwell. Defender Matija Nastasic (calf) is also still out. Provisional squad: Pantilimon, Hart, Boyata, Milner, Kompany, Demichelis, Lescott, Clichy, Kolarov, Nasri, Silva, Navas, Garcia, Fernandinho, Toure, Rodwell, Dzeko, Negredo, Guidetti.

Manuel Pellegrini: Did not appear to know a 4-2 win would have won the group Manuel Pellegrini appeared to be unaware that Manchester City needed only one more goal against Bayern Munich to top their UEFA Champions League group. City were 2-0 down at the Allianz Arena inside the opening 12 minutes, but drew level through goals from David Silva and Aleksandar Kolarov before James Milner put the Premier League side ahead on 62 minutes. A fourth goal would have seen City top Group D by virtue of a better head-to-head record against Bayern, who won 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the competition. However, with two minutes to go, Pellegrini replaced striker Edin Dzeko with midfielder Jack Rodwell and appeared to suggest he thought City required a 5-2 win in order to finish first. "It is very important to be first in the group but not the most important thing. It was difficult to score two goals and I think that Silva couldn't play more than 70 minutes." The City boss told Sky Sports when asked if he was t ...
Manchester City defeat an important lesson for Bayern Munich - Guardiola The Champions League holders surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday and their coach believes the result will serve as an important wake-up call By Joe Wright Dec 11, 2013 1:37:00 AM Pep Guardiola believes Bayern Munich's 3-2 Champions League defeat to Manchester City will serve as an important lesson for his side. Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze had put the holders in control after just 12 minutes, but goals from David Silva, James Milner and an Aleksandar Kolarov penalty secured a memorable comeback for last season's Premier League runners-up. "I think it is something we have to know - that we can lose," Guardiola told reporters after the match. "Opponents have good players and coaches too. It is always difficult. "But we started very well and for the first 30 minutes we were very good. Later we had to use the ball better and use our counterattacks. Manchester City are a good team and you have to have ...
OFF-COLOUR MUNICH LOSE BUT WIN GROUP Bayern’s imperious winning run came to a temporary halt on Tuesday night as Pep Guardiola’s side fell 3-2 at home to Manchester City in their final Champions League Group D fixture, but a one-goal advantage in the head-to-head comparison was enough to ensure the Bavarians finished top of the section ahead of the Premier League outfit. The 68,000 full house at the Allianz Arena saw the home team dominate from the off and make a dream start with goals from Thomas Müller and Mario Götze in the first 12 minutes, but the Bundesliga side shifted down a gear and David Silva pulled one back after half an hour. The pace dropped through to half-time, but City were a different proposition after the break and captain Aleksandar Kolarov levelled from the spot on the hour. England international James Milner then handed the Premier League side a 62nd-minute lead, and for all their efforts, FCB were ultimately unable to prise apart the visitors’ packed defence and stave off th ...
Manchester City. Manchester City staged a superb comeback to end Bayern Munich's record run of 10 consecutive Champions League wins but they still finished as Group D runners-up behind the German champions. Bayern were dominant early on as Thomas Muller struck from Dante's pass before Mario Gotze scored following a corner. David Silva pulled a goal back from close range after Jesus Navas's cross. Aleksandar Kolarov equalised with a penalty after James Milner was tripped before Milner's fine finish won it. Bayern suffer Brit panic Bayern's last three home defeats in European competition have come against English clubs - Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea It was an amazing turnaround from Manuel Pellegrini's side, who almost earned the 4-2 victory they needed to go through as group winners as Alvaro Negredo had a late effort saved by Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. But after Bayern scored twice in the opening 12 minutes, the fact City fought back to claim an unexpected victory will give them confidence as ...

Inter Milan are chasing Manchester City pair Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko. The People says Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio checked out striker Dzeko and left-back Kolarov in City’s 4-2 Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday. Bosnia international Dzeko scored their final goal. But the 27-year-old has started just four Premier League games this season, and is unhappy at being behind Sergio Aguero and Alvaro Negredo in the pecking order. Serbia star Kolarov, 28, has a similarly uncertain role in Manuel Pellegrini’s squad. Under contract until 2015, he would relish a return to Italy – having spent three seasons with Lazio before joining City in 2010.

The Chilean has been told by the club's owners that he will continue to receive their full backing to get what he wants. .

Manchester City 5 CSKA Moscow 2: match report Beautiful partnership: Álvaro Negredo (left) and Sergio Agüero both scored twice in Manchester City's defeat of CSKA Photo: AP By Henry Winter, Etihad Stadium9:40PM GMT 05 Nov 2013 CommentsComment Manchester City progressed to the knock-out stages of the Champions League for the first time thanks to their brilliant strike-force. Sergio Aguero scored the first two, then Alvaro Negredo swept in a hat-trick and the only disappointing, concerning element on the night were some defensive lapses. City’s attackers were magnificent. Negredo was named man of the match, having scored two tap-ins and then a late header, and others pushed him close. Having converted an early penalty, Aguero’s turn for his second and City’s goal was worth the admission fee alone, a celebration of penalty-box cunning and special technique. Samir Nasri delivered one of his best performances for City, hounding CSKA defenders and creating havoc in the visitors’ defence. David Silva a ...

I doubt there's a full back in the EPL, with a more wicked bend on his cross, than Aleksandar Kolarov.
The Spaniard was superb as Manchester City picked up a crucial 2-1 win at CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night and the success put Manuel Pellegrini's side back on track for qualifying from UEFA Champions League Group D. Sadly, the game was marred by racist chanting from the stands but, on the field, Silva was the star man. Sergio Aguero may have scored twice to help City comeback from Zoran Tosic's opener on a much-talked-about difficult pitch in Moscow, however, it was impossible to ignore Silva. He seems to be back to his wizardry performances of City's Premier League-winning campaign of 2011/12. CSKA Moscow v Manchester City starting line-ups Selection Boss Pellegrini made three changes for the crucial game in Russia as City aimed to respond to their humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich on Matchday Two. Full-backs Pablo Zabaleta and Aleksandar Kolarov replaced Micah Richards and Gael Clichy while Jesus Navas returned at the expense of Samir Nasri. That meant strikers Aguero and Alvaro Negredo again led ...

Manchester City's Champions League campaign is back on track but this crucial victory will be remembered for all the wrong reasons, after Yaya Touré was subjected to racist abuse from a section of the CSKA supporters. There were a couple of isolated incidents that overshadowed a battling performance in Moscow, where City negotiated freezing temperatures and a spray-painted pitch to pick up the three points that put qualification for the knockout stage within their grasp. After falling behind to a goal from the former Manchester United winger Zoran Tosic, who punished some poor defending from Javi García, City struck twice in eight minutes to turn a game they had been dominating back in their favour. Sergio Agüero got both, two opportunist goals from the Argentina international taking his tally to four in five days and eight in his last six matches, as the striker punished a CSKA team that always looked vulnerable defensively. The rain that Manuel Pellegrini feared would render a threadbare pitch unplay ...
Champions League Round Up: GROUP A Bayer Leverkusen 4 - 0 Shakhtar Donetsk Scorers: Kiessling 22' 72' Rolfes 50' pen Sam 57' Kiessling had been at the centre of controversy with a 'ghost goal' in his side's Bundesliga win over Hoffenheim last week, but there was no doubt about his strikes as he headed the Germans in front midway through the 1st half, before Simon Rolfes slotted home from the spot just after the break. Sidney Sam added a 3rd with a well taken finish, before Kiessling poked home his 2nd of the night with 18 minutes left to confirm the win. The result extends Leverkusen's unbeaten run at home in the Champions League group stages to 8 games, and leaves them just a point behind Group A leaders Manchester United. Leverkusen coach Smi Hyypia made 4 changes to the side that beat Hoffenheim, with Emir Spahic, Giulio Donati, Emre Can and Son Heung-Min all handed starts. Lars Bender missed out with a thigh injury. The visitors, who travelled to Germany on the back of a 7 game unbeaten run, made 2 ch ...

PELLEGRINI HAS NASRI SMILING AGAIN Samir Nasri tore Chris Smalling apart at the Etihad. The Manchester City midfielder, in combination with Aleksandar Kolarov, dominated the left-side of City's midfield and was consistently involved in the home team's best moments. That David Silva was missing was only a footnote thanks to Nasri, who is back to his best under manager Manuel Pellegrini. And he was playing with a smile on his face, happily joking during tense moments either side of halftime. Silva is regarded as City's best creative option, but Nasri in his current mood is a genuine challenger. He was irresistible on City's biggest day of the season. PUNDITS HAVE FIELD DAY WITH DI CANIO SACKING There'll be few tears shed within the media over Paolo di Canio's demise. Plenty of finger wagging and 'I told you so's', though.

Sergio Agüero struck twice as Manchester City FC powered past rivals Manchester United FC 4-1 on a day when Arsenal FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC both posted victories. Manchester City FC rattled in three quickfire goals in a convincing 4-1 defeat of rivals Manchester United FC after Arsenal FC strode to the Premier League summit. The home team's effervescent approach to the first Manchester derby of the season yielded a 16th-minute opener, Aleksandar Kolarov darting down the left and caressing across goal for Sergio Agüero to volley in. Yaya Touré then made it two shortly before the break by tapping in Álvaro Negredo's flick-on. Negredo was the architect again two minutes into the second half. Turning sharply on the byline, the Spain striker dissected the visiting defence with a pinpoint pass that Agüero fired beyond David de Gea. The rout was complete when Samir Nasri volleyed in Jesús Navas' delicate cross at the far post, and Wayne Rooney's sublime late free-kick did little to dampen City's spirit ...

And that's not the only rumoured Manchester-Madrid transfer action in Friday's gossip columns, with news that Madrid have not only identified United's David de Gea as their next goalkeeper but that they want to sign him this summer, even though the current No1 Iker Casillas is only 31 and has several years of impressive shot-stopping in his lithe young legs yet. United have lined up Stoke's Asmir Begovic as a replacement. Talking of players on their way out of Manchester, Roque Santa Cruz, Wayne Bridge, Kolo Touré, Maicon, Joleon Lescott, Edin Dzeko, Scott Sinclair, Gareth Barry, Javi García, Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri are City's cu ...

Manchester City Vs Chelsea On Sunday,24/02/2013 At 2:30pm Roberto Mancini is likely to make several changes from the rotated side that beat Leeds 4-0 in the FA Cup as regulars Joe Hart, Gael Clichy and Edin Dzeko are all likely to replace Costil Pantilimon, Aleksandar Kolarov and Carlos Tevez. The home side could also receive a much-needed boost with captain Vincent Kompany currently striving to return from a calf injury in time for the game. If he passes a late fitness test he should return in place of Kolo Toure. Gareth Barry (knock), however, remains doubtful while Micah Richards (knee) will definitely not feature. Rafa Benitez is also set to make a variety of changes from the side that drew against Sparta Prague in the Europa League on Thursday, as Frank Lampard, Branislav Ivanovic and Ashley Cole, all rested in that game, should return at the expense of John Obi Mikel, John Terry and Ryan Bertrand. Eden Hazard, following his late tie- winning contribution in Thursday's game, should also come back int ...

Manchester City are preparing to spend £60million or more to improve their squad with summer moves for Edinson Cavani and Victor Wanyama. City boss Roberto Mancini has decided to strengthen his squad which is currently under performing in the Barclays Premier League and willing to offload several players to meet the demands of UEFA's financial fair play. Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Scott Sinclair, Aleksandar Kolarov and Maicon are some of the names ready to be shown the Etihad exit door. City had approached Napoli striker Cavani but were put off by his £55million release clause. City eventually failed to sign a single player during the January transfer window but made £20million through the sale of strker Mario Balotelli to AC Milan. Chelsea are also keen on Cavani but have their sights on Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao. City are prepared to break the British transfer record to sign Cavani, who is the leading scorer with 18 goals in Serie A this season. However, City ...
TEAM NEWS Olivier Giroud will undergo a fitness check on Saturday to determine whether the striker is able to face Manchester City on Sunday. The Frenchman suffered a cut knee in last weekend's FA Cup draw at Swansea City but otherwise Arsenal have no other fresh injury problems. Andre Santos and Abou Diaby could be in contention after building their fitness with a midweek Under 21s outing but goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is still at least a fortnight away from returning to training. City travel to Arsenal without Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and former Gunner Samir Nasri this weekend. Striker Aguero (hamstring) remains on the sidelines while midfielder Toure is at the African Cup of Nations - along with brother Kolo and back-up striker Abdul Razak - and forward Nasri completes a three-game suspension.

Defender Fitz Hall, Manuel Almunia (both hamstring) and Almen Abdi (pelvic) are all doubts.
Manchester City will be without Samir Nasri against Stoke City after they decided not to appeal against his sending-off at Norwich. Striker Mario Balotelli (virus) is not yet ready to return while full-backs Aleksandar Kolarov and Maicon (knee) also remain on the sidelines. Defender Micah Richards (knee) and midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring) are still long-term casualties. Stoke midfielder Steven Nzonzi will be available after appealing against his sending-off on Saturday, when he was shown a red card for an alleged stamp on Southampton's Jack Cork. Geoff Cameron returns after serving a suspension for accruing five yellow cards and could replace Ryan Shotton at right-back. Rory Delap (hernia) and Marc Wilson (broken leg) are both unavailable for the Potters. -
CITY NEWS Mancini considering January buys Roberto Mancini admits he might be forced to consider signing some new players in the January transfer window. The Manchester City manager is concerned his squad will struggle to cope with injuries and players leaving for the Africa Cup of Nations, and has ruled out selling any players. It has been suggested that Mario Balotelli could be on his way back to Milan. The Toure brothers - Yaya and Kolo - will be away on international duty for four weeks. When asked if he might consider investing in new faces, Mancini said: "Probably. We can't sell players. We don't have enough players to play if we sell players. "We can have a problem because we lose three players and we have Micah Richards, I don't think he play until the end of February. "Jack Rodwell - we don't know when he can play. Maybe we can recover Aleksandar Kolarov in two weeks. We will see this in next days." Maicon has also been receiving treatment for a knee injury in Italy while Balotelli is not expecte ...
TEAM NEWS Sunderland winger Adam Johnson is rated as doubtful to feature against his former club after he limped off at the weekend with a dead leg. Sebastian Larsson (knee) is also a doubt so David Meyler, back from a loan spell at Hull, could be recalled. Manchester City could be boosted by the return of skipper Vincent Kompany (groin) and Mario Balotelli (illness). Aleksandar Kolarov and Gael Clichy are both doubtful, while Samir Nasri (hamstring) is out.
Kompany set for quick return Vincent Kompany could make a rapid return to the Manchester City team against Reading on Saturday. The City captain limped off in the Manchester derby defeat with a groin injury and missed last week's 3-1 win over Newcastle. But he could make his comeback against the Royals while James Milner, who has not played since November's win over Wigan, is definitely available. And manager Roberto Mancini insisted that Samir Nasri could feature in December 29's game at Norwich. The Frenchman has a groin injury that it was reportedly serious enough to keep him out of the entire festive programme. Mancini said: "We hope he can be ready for the bench at Norwich. For Stoke [on January 1], he will be ready." However, Aleksandar Kolarov will also miss the meeting with Reading, as will long-term absentees Jack Rodwell and Micah Richards and the ill Mario Balotelli. Mancini added: "We recover James and probably Vinnie but we don't have Samir and Kolarov." The Italian is aiming for 12 points ou ...

Preview: City vs United, Fight Position Peak Game titled Manchester Derby between Manchester City and Manchester United will be presented on the weekend of the 16 Premier League in order to fight the top position. After crashing out of the European tournament, practical concentration City will be concentrated in the domestic league. In the match on Sunday, The Citizens will be featured heavily in the fight that took place at Etihad Stadium in order to eliminate the difference in points between the two teams. However, the City's intention was a little bothered by the injury storm. Micah Richards (knee) and James Milner (hamstring) likely will miss this important match. David Silva is another player who likely will also miss this match. However, coach Roberto Mancini could be replaced by Javi Garcia to play more defensively.

Manchester United VS Manchester City ( team news ) Manchester City will give David Silva every chance to play in Sunday's derby game. Although City manager Roberto Mancini has ruled Aleksandar Kolarov out of the Etihad Stadium encounter, Silva, who missed the Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund in midweek with a hamstring injury, remains in contention. "We will try with David," said Mancini. Gaël Clichy and James Milner are both battling to recover from ankle and hamstring problems respectively, although Mancini is wary of pushing both men into action too quickly. "It is a big risk because afterwards we have a lot of games between now and the end of December and we need all the players to recover." With United boasting a three-point advantage but City having a better goal difference the two sides are in exactly the same position as they were ahead of the corresponding fixture last season. On that occasion, City famously won through Vincent Kompany's header to seize control of the title race with ...
3) Manchester City 2-3 Manchester United FA Cup Third Round; 8th January, 2012 A game full of surprises, started by the inclusion of Paul Scholes – who had previously retired in the summer – in the 18-man squad. United were in complete control after Rooney gave the visitors the lead and Vincent Kompany was sent-off for a challenge on Nani. Danny Welbeck and another Rooney strike made it 3-0 at half-time. However, goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and Sergio Aguero made for a stunning second-half, with United progressing at the expense of their rivals.
Premier League: Why Manchester City Will Beat Manchester Utd It's not been a good week for Roberto Mancini. In the season where Manchester City were supposed to begin their assault on the Champions League, defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening has left them with three losses and three draws. It's the worst record for an English team in the competition, let alone an English Champion. Mancini insists he is not embarrassed, but upon suffering such a grizzly demise in the "Group of Death," he probably should be. Aleksandar Kolarov's melancholy rendition of Jingle Bells might unwittingly capture the despondency in the £365 million City squad, particularly when they look at the relative fortunes of their Manchester neighbours. Even with a surprise defeat to Cluj, Manchester Utd have dominated Group H of the Champions League. And in the Premier League, they are three points clear of City going into Sunday's crucial derby game at Eastlands. Sir Alex Ferguson may also be buoyed by the fact t ...

Manchester City, as you might expect, make a couple changes from their mid-week win over Wigan. Sergio Agüero, Matija Nastasić, Pablo Zabaleta, Mario Balotelli, and Javi Garcia all return to the bench, replaced by Carlos Tevez, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov, Edin Džeko and Samir Nasri. It really isn't fair honestly to pull nearly half your lineup and replace them with as good or better players. Everton's lineup is exactly the same as their mid-week draw against Arsenal. Unlike City, David Moyes's player cupboard is bare so you gotta play who ya got. It'll be a tough ask for the Toffees but they are the last team to beat City at the Ethiad, so you never know. Manchester City starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Joe Hart, Maicon, Vincent Kompany, Joleon Lescott, Aleksandar Kolarov; Yaya Toure, Gareth Barry; David Silva, Samir Nasri, Carlos Tevez; Edin Džeko. Everton starting lineup (4-4-1-1): Tim Howard; Tony Hibbert, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka, Leighton Baines; Steven Naismith, Steven Pienaar, Leon Osman ...

Roberto Mancini expects Manchester City to face a tougher task against Chelsea on Sunday after the London club sacked Roberto Di Matteo and replaced him with Rafael Benitez. City, who start the weekend at the top of the Premier League, are looking to bounce back from the bitter disappointment of going out of the Champions League after being held to a 1-1 draw by Real Madrid on Wednesday. But Mancini believes City's 12-match unbeaten league run this season is under threat after the events at Stamford Bridge this week. "Usually when one team changes a manager, the game after for the opponents is very difficult," the Italian told a news conference in Manchester on Friday. "For us, I think it is more difficult." He added: "Chelsea are one of the best teams in England, in Europe. They have won everything in the last 10 years. "Playing against them in London is always a good game. To win there would be important for us. Chelsea is a good team with Di Matteo and will be a good team for Benitez. They have good pl ...

Striker Gabriel Agbonlahor scored his first goals since January as Aston Villa twice came from behind to knock Manchester City out of the Capital One Cup 4-2 after extra time. The England international hit two against the Barclays Premier League champions, semi-finalists in this competition in two of the last three seasons. Mario Balotelli and then Aleksandar Kolarov had twice put the hosts ahead while Villa old boy Gareth Barry's helped his former team's cause with an own-goal equaliser and Agbonlahor took the tie to extra-time. Charles N'Zogbia scored only his third goal since his summer 2011 move from Wigan to put Villa ahead early in the added period, and Agbonlahor ensured there was no way back with his second goal seven minutes from the end. The first half was notable only for its lack of any real action. Villa began the brighter but lacked ideas in the final third and when they did create arguably the best opening of the 45 minutes they contrived to miss it. Agbonlahor fired in a low shot which was ...

Aleksandar Kolarov has scored in the opening of both Champions League games. Free-kick.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has told goalkeeper Joe Hart to stop criticising the team, insisting he is the only "judge". City twice led Champions League rivals Real Madrid before slipping to a dramatic 3-2 defeat in the Bernabeu. "You can't go 2-1 up with five minutes to go and lose the game," Hart said. "We can only blame ourselves." But Mancini responded: "I agree but I think Joe Hart should do his job. I can criticise the team not Joe Hart." The Italian added: "Joe Hart should stay as goalie. I am the judge, not Joe Hart." City had to withstand some intense pressure before substitute Edin Dzeko gave them the lead on 69 minutes. Marcelo equalised for Real Madrid seven minutes later only for the Spanish side to fall behind again when Aleksandar Kolarov's free-kick curled in after 85 minutes.

Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov is confident that he will be able to keep Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo in check. "Ronaldo is something different," said the 26-year-old. "Everyone knows about him, there's nothing much more that you can say about him. He's a special player - with Messi he is the best player in the world. So to play against someone like that will be a big test. He played for Man United too so he will want to score against us." "But I'll be confident because City can go to Madrid with confidence. It should be a great night for the club. We are the champions of England and they will know it will not be an easy night for them as well. Everyone at Man City will look forward to going there." Will City be able to stop Ronaldo & Real Madrid from winning tonight?

City’s Balkan trio celebrate comprehensive wins while England leave it late to rescue a draw at Wembley. England edged June's meeting with Ukraine at Euro 2012 but they were unable to do enough to grab the three points this time, with only a late Frank Lampard penalty getting Hodgson's men out of jail. City's trio of England stars Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott and James Milner kept their places and played the full 90 minutes for their second Group H fixture which proved to be a far tougher test than Friday's 5-0 cakewalk in Moldova. Just before half-time, the so-called "Ukrainian Messi" Konoplyanka gave Ukraine the lead with a beautiful strike from 25 yards that even the little Argentine maestro would have been proud of, leaving Hart with no chance. A handball decision late into the second half granted Lampard the opportunity to level matters and the Chelsea man made no mistake, slamming the ball home after 86 minutes.

Manchester City have made another attempt to sign midfielder Daniele De Rossi from Roma, according to Il Corriere dello Sport. Roberto Mancini has long ago expressed his interest in signing the Italy international, but the club officials were unable to persuade the player that his future lies at Etihad Stadium. Il Corriere dello Sport claims that the Citizens are making a final assault on the highly rated midfielder, despite signing Jack Rodwell from Everton just few days ago. The same source claims that agent Sergio Berti visited Manchester yesterday, and not to discuss the future of his client Aleksandar Kolarov, but to talk about his other protégé Daniele De Rossi. Manchester City have reportedly prepared a four-year deal for the midfielder, worth €8 million per campaign, which is €2 million more than what he is earning at Olimpico. It remains to be seen whether the player will be interested in joining the Citizens, while the transfer fee is another matter than needs to be resolved.
