Frank Lampard scores the winner as Manchester City edge 3-2 thriller against Sunderland Frank Lampard marked his extended stay at Manchester City with the winning goal as the Barclays Premier League champions completed a dramatic 3-2 victory over Sunderland to keep the pressure on leaders Chelsea. The former England midfielder celebrated the renewal of his stay at the Etihad Stadium until the end of the season by rescuing hisManchester Citysidejust when they appeared to be on the verge of spurning a two-goal lead for the second time in consecutive league home matches. The second-half substitute guided a header from Gael Clichy's pinpoint 73rd-minute cross into the bottom corner for what proved to be the goal that took the wind out ofSunderland's sails. It capped a frantic period of five goals in the space of just over 16 minutes. Yaya Toure had clattered home a brilliant long-range strike to give City a 57th-minute lead and Stevan Jovetic slotted in an impudent flick, with Clichy the provider once more. B ...

London: Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini praised his side`s all-round display after they overcame a disallowed penalty appeal and a red card shown to Eliaquim Mangala to win 3-0 away to Southampton on Sunday. Victory saw reigning Premier League champions City climb above Southampton into second place and move to within six points of leaders Chelsea. “We beat a very good team,” Pellegrini told Sky Sports. “They were second in the table and deserved that position.” Yaya Toure opened the scoring in the 51st minute at St Mary`s Stadium before centre-back Mangala was sent off for a second bookable offence. Goals in the final 10 minutes from substitute Frank Lampard and Gael Clichy secured victory for the visitors. Despite an ultimately convincing scoreline, some of the shine of victory was removed for City after a late injury to Vincent Kompany meant they finished the ...

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 ...
CITY HOLD ARSENAL IN 2-2 THRILLER Martin Demichelis headed a late equaliser as Manchester City drew 2-2 with potential title rivals Arsenal in a pulsating encounter at Emirates Stadium. City had taken a first-half lead through Sergio Aguero, only for Arsenal to respond with fine goals from Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez before veteran defender Demichelis earned the Premier League champions a point. Danny Welbeck was presented with an early chance to vindicate his selection as Arsenal’s main striker when he seized on David Silva’s poor pass, but the deadline day signing’s dink over Joe Hart came back off the post. Arsenal were in the ascendancy in the first half, but were rocked on their heels on 28 minutes when City broke with pace and Jesus Navas’ excellent low ball into the box was cleverly finished by Aguero. The home side levelled on 63 minutes when Aaron Ramsey played in Wilshere, who skipped past former team-mate Gael Clichy before lifting a delightful shot over Joe Hart into the net. Wils ...

How Manchester City could line up this season The English champions are looking to improve their fortunes in Europe this season with careful additions in the latest in our series looking at the Premier League's top six sides By Jamie Dunn Jul 24, 2014 14:00:00 After a season in which Manuel Pellegrini guided Manchester City to a Premier League title in his first season in charge, the champions can ill-afford to rest on their laurels this summer. The challenge now for Pellegrini and City is to compete on all fronts, with particular emphasis on becoming a genuine contender in the Champions League. And work has begun at the Etihad Stadium to strengthen the squad and provide competition of the highest calibre in every position. Willy Caballero is one such player who will do just that. A goalkeeper Pellegrini is extremely familiar with having worked with the Argentine during a successful spell at Malaga, the 32-year-old provides serious competition for Joe Hart and represents an upgrade on Costel Pantilimon, w ...

Manchester City trounce Milan 5- 1 and Iheanacho Scored a Brilliant Goal too. A relentless first half and Stevan Jovetic's brace made for a bright start to City's International Champions Cup, with the English champions pounding AC Milan 5-1 in Pittsburgh. Manuel Pellegrini recalled the majority of his lineup from the SKC victory, only replacing Micah Richards and Karim Rekik with Gael Clichy and Matija Nastasić, respectively. Former City striker Mario Balotelli also began the game on the bench for Milan. Just as against MLS opposition, City's opener came early against Milan. In the 12th minute Jesus Navas played a nice through ball into the path of Stevan Jovetic, and the forward finished inside Milan keeper Michael Agazzi's near post to give City their first of many on the night.

10 Things Arsenal Fans Need To Know About Alexis Sanchez 10. He Is The Youngest Player To Ever Play For Chile Hassan Ammar/AP/Press Association Images Hassan Ammar/AP/Press Association Images Alexis Sanchez is about to be introduced to the Premier League in what is just the latest chapter in a burgeoning career for the forward, whose career growth has been rapid – especially in the international scene. Rather than progressing through his country’s youth ranks, the Chile forward only played for the U-20 side before he was selected for the national team. He is the youngest player to ever represent Chile, when he made his debut at 17 years, four months and eight days. Since then, he has gone on to score 24 goals in 71 appearances for his country. Chile saw the potential in the forward from a very young age and he has paid them back in kind. Still only 25, Sanchez remains today a crucial member of La Roja, and has been one of the most exciting players at this summer’s World Cup finals. .9. And Has Been ...

Ray Parlour believes Arsenal won't block club captain Thomas Vermaelen's prospective move to Manchester United. The Belgian defender has agreed to join the Red Devils this summer, according to reports, with Louis van Gaal’s side now just needing to agree a transfer fee with the north London club. Vermaelen would become the latest in a long line of players to join one of the Gunners’ rivals, after seeing Bacary Sagna, Robin van Persie, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy all leave the Emirates in recent seasons. But Parlour claims it will be very difficult to stop United from landing their man. “Thomas Vermaelen wants to play football, Last year he couldn’t get in the Arsenal side because Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny were superb at the back. Kieran Gibbs has improved so much he couldn’t even play him at left-back. “When you get to a situation where a squad member wants to move, sometimes the player has more sway than the club itself. “If he wants to play football, and an offer comes in from ...
Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy won the Premier League together, but neither is going to the World Cup
Here are the Top 5 players who were astonishingly left out of their respective squads: Getty Images: Gael Clichy 5) Gael Clichy: 28-year old Manchester City defender has been left out of the French squad by coach Didier Deschamps. His exclusion from the World Cup squad has been surprising as he has been a decent player with Manchester City and has also won two Premier League trophies with the club in 2011-12 and in 2013-14. He has expressed his disappointment by saying: "It's life and if it is my only bad luck then I am happy because my family are healthy. Of course I am sad, it is a big tournament you don't want to miss, but I will be fresh for next year, so that is good. As for City, I have a three-year contract and the boss has faith in me so I will keep giving my best." - Daily Mirror Getty Images: Philippe Coutinho 4) Philippe Coutinho: The young Liverpool play-maker has failed to impress Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari as he missed out on Brazil's 23-man squad.

Can this not be an Arsene Wenger inspired conspiracy?
Manchester United are this week being tipped to join derby rivals Manchester City in the race to sign Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna. Incoming manager Louis van Gaal has reportedly identified the 31-year-old as a summer target and wants the defender to compete with Rafael for a fullback slot at Old Trafford. Cross-city rivals City however are also interested, with some reports suggesting the new Premier League champions are set to offer Sagna a four-year deal worth somewhere in the region of £100,000-a-week. Both Manchester clubs have plucked players from the Emirates in the past, with City doing so quite memorably when they signed Emmanuel Adebayor in 2009, while Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy have both swapped the Emirates for the Etihad in the past. United meanwhile landed Robin van Persie from the Gunners in 2012. But is Sagna really the ideal solution for either side’s defensive issues? Especially at United, where Rafael is progressing quite well, though admittedly with very little competition at ri ...
Sagna will officially sign for Man City on July 1 when his Arsenal contract has expired and become the fifth player City have captured from the Gunners in five years, following Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure in 2009, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy in 2011. We wish u well. Thank u Bacary.
Bacary Sagna will almost double his wages after agreeing to join Manchester City in a deal worth at least £120,000‑a‑week. City are on the verge of announcing the free transfer after Arsenal failed to persuade him to extend his seven-year stay. The Gunners offered to improve Sagna’s £70,000- a-week contract but their package fell short of the offer from City. Turkish champions Fenerbahce did match City’s bid but the 31‑year-old has decided to become the latest Arsenal player to move from the Emirates to the Etihad since the Manchester club were taken over by billionaire Sheikh Mansour in 2008. Emmanuel Adebayor was the first and he has been followed by Kolo Toure, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri.
Please correct me if am wrong - Emmanuel Adebayor, Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri, Kolo And Sagna left Arsenal for Manchester City. I strongly believe that Arsenal may be a feeder team of Manchester City.
FOOTBALL 411: French defender, Bacary Sagna sets to become Arsenal's fifth player to switch over to the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City after the 31 years old turned down Arsenal's offer to improve his £70,000,00 per week contract. With the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure, Gael Clichy, and Samir Nasir having joined City from Arsenal, Sagna is poised with a £120,000,00 per week at Man City.

Manchester City defender Gael Clichy was philosophical after being left out of France's squad for next month's World Cup. The left-back was not selected in the 23-man squad for the tournament for Brazil and is not on the standby list for the competition, with Patrice Evra and Lucas Digne preferred and Benoit Tremoulinas on standby.Former Arsenal man Clichy conceded he was disappointed by the news but sees the positive side to being omitted from Didier Deschamps' plans.

Nigeria like every other country met FIFA's stipulated deadline for release of at least 30-man provisional list to be submitted on May 13. Brazil demonstrated their readiness for the World Cup by naming their crack 23-man squad, with Ronaldinho, Robinho, Kaka and Coutinho major omissions in their line up. France named their team without Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy, but my major focus shifts on the Super Eagles of Nigeria. In April, Keshi's 30-man provisional list was delayed after holding a meeting with NFF technical commitee which caused eyebrows to be raised when finally the list was released. Incase you were not updated, the. 30-man list had few surprises, with the exclusion of Ike Uche, a notable but not a surprise absentee. However Brown Ideye missed the cut following his drop in form. Imoh Ezekiel, Chinedu Obasi and reco ...
Liverpool are ramping up their interest in Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy as loanee Aly Cissokho prepares...
France squad (Getty Images) France coach Didier Deschamps has surprisingly left Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri out of his 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup 2014 held in Brazil. Samir Nasri who has won 41 caps for France joins club teammate Gael Clichy and Monaco captain Eric Abidal in the omission list. The former Barcelona defender Abidal has capped 67 times but will be watching the World Cup from home this time. The left-back position will be filled by Patrice Evra or PSG’s Lucas Digne. There are eight players aged under 25 in the squad, including Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann and 21-year-old duo Raphael Varane of Real Madrid and Paul Pogba of Juventus. Bastia’s 34-year-old goalkeeper Mickael Landreau, who will retire from football after the finals, is the senior figure in the squad, while Paris Saint-Germain left-back Lucas Digne, 20, was preferred to Gael Clichy of Manchester City. Newcastle United forward Loic Remy, who played under Deschamps at Marseille, was selected rather t ...
Despite the fact that Manchester City lifted the EPL, their stars former Gunners Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy have not been named in the France National team for the World Cup. Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koschienly and Bacarry Sagna of Arsenal will feature for the France National team. Was Arsene Wenger involved in the selection of the France squad?
Gael Clichy,Nicolas Anelka,Yoann Gourcuff,Jeremy Toulalan would disagree with that. not in World Cup France squad
Midfielders Samir Nasri and Yoann Gourcuff were left off France's provisional 23-man World Cup roster on Tuesday, along with defenders Eric Abidal and Gael Clichy.
Ashley Cole, Kolo Touré, Gael Clichy, Nicolas Anelka, Carlos Tevez. No idea for the last one !
It pains me alot as a die-hard Arsenal fan to come to realization that two former Arsenal players(Samir Nasri $ Gael Clichy) is going to win the league and also has won it 2 times in 3 seasons. And more painfully another Arsenal player might even join them in the person of Bacary Sagna. Do not criticise or call me a plastic fan, i love Arsenal as a FC and there is nothing i can do about it. The season entirely has been a season of what might have been for Arsenal FC and season of "what ifs" . Lets get it right next season starting with winning the FA cup.

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 could find themselves in hot water with Uefa over Financial Fair Play, which could lead to positive implications for Arsenal or Everton in their quest for Champions League football next season. What’s the story? City are on the verge of a severe rap from football’s governing body for failing to comply with FFP. Why? After buying the likes of Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Javi Garcia and Matija Nastasic, City posted a loss of £149m between 2011-2013 – FFP rules forbid clubs making losses in excess of £37.2 million over that period after certain exceptions are taken into account. What does this mean? It means that if City fail to provide new evidence in the next 48 hours to support claims they’ve played by the rules in their bid to balance the books (their £350million sponsorship deal with Etihad being under particular scrutiny), they are likely to be found guilty of FFP and be hit with either a heavy fine or transfer embargo. At this time,expulsion from the Champions L ...
This Man City sha!!! Liverpool will have the pick of three players from Manchester City, who are desperate to sign Luis Suarez this summer, [football] direct news understands. The Uruguay international has been in superb form again this season after already attracting interest from City and other top clubs for much of last summer, and he looks set to be subject to further transfer speculation and rumours after an even better campaign this time round. The 27-year-old is currently the leading scorer in the Premier League with 29 goals, and he has also laid on 11 assists for his team-mates, helping the Reds to the top of the table with only a few games remaining. City will be among their main rivals for the title, and they will now look to dent Liverpool's challenge in the future by signing their best player, though a club insider revealed that they are willing to offer one of Edin Dzeko, Samir Nasri or Gael Clichy to Brendan Rodgers to help push a deal through. Dzeko and Nasri could ease the loss of Suarez' ...
dear arsenal fans: please tell me what the difference is between your players - like Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy and Robin Van Persie - leaving your club for another, and other players leaving their clubs to join you - like Arteta or anyone who ever played for another club before you.are you going to boo your ex-players for ever?
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 ...

Man United line-up more expensive than Man City's by Football Direct News 0 Comments Huddle Manchester United's starting line-up for last night's derby cost more than Manchester City's, but still lost 3-0 at home to their neighbours. Man United's starting line-up cost a combined £186.4 million, with January signing Juan Mata from Chelsea at £37.1 million the most expensive player on the pitch last night, over £16 million more than the cost of Man City's. Manuel Pellegrini's starting line-up cost £170.15 million to assemble with midfielder Fernandinho, who arrived in the summer from Shakhtar Donetsk for £30 million, Man City's most expensive player fielded last night. Goalkeeper Joe Hart and Man City's back four cost a total of £24.25 million: Hart - £600,000 from Shrewsbury Town, Pablo Zabaleta - £6.45 million from Espanyol, Martin Demichelis - £4.2 million from Espanyol, Vincent Kompany - £6 million from Hamburg and Gael Clichy - £7 million from Arsenal. In contrast, Rio Ferdinand alone cost ...
Jimmy Milner Joe Hart Gael Clichy and everyone connected with Manchester's ONLY football club i thank you ;-)
A goal in each half from Edin Dzeko and late third from Yaya Toure settled the 167th Manchester derby that the Blues dominated from the first minute onwards to record a Premier League double over their old rivals - and break several club records in the process. With so much at stake and the Blues eating into the first of their three games in hand over leaders Chelsea, Manuel Pellegrini opted for a starting XI with pace and plenty of attacking options. Jesus Navas and Gael Clichy were recalled to patrol the flanks while skipper Vincent Kompany and Edin Dzeko returned to the team after a suspension for the former and illness to the latter.

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna looks set to sign for Manchester City on a free transfer this summer, after turning down a £9 million offer from Inter Milan, according to the Daily Star. After the 6-0 demolition at the hands of London rivals Chelsea, the news that the French defender may sign for a Premier League rival will come as a huge blow for Arsene Wenger. Sagna is said to have been frustrated by Arsenal's offer of a two-year extension on his current £60,000-a-week contract, and a move to the Etihad will see him link up with former Arsenal team-mates and fellow France internationals Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri. Manchester City visit derby rivals Manchester United this evening, in a vital game in their quest to regain the Premier League crown. Arsenal meanwhile, welcome Swansea City to the Emirates Stadium and will look to bounce back after the weekend's disappointment. Unless Sagna can agree to a new deal at the Gunners, he will leave the club for free this summer. Italian giants Inter Milan repor . ...

ABIDAL AND NASRI OUT: Center-back Eric Abidal and midfielder Samir Nasri were missing when France coach Didier Deschamps named a 24-man squad on Thursday for next week's friendly against the Netherlands. Forward Antoine Griezmann was one of two uncapped players, along with left-back Lucas Digne who replaces Manchester City's Gael Clichy, called up for Wednesday's game. The 22-year-old has scored 19 goals in 38 matches in all competitions with Real Sociedad this season. Winger Franck Ribery and centre back Mamadou Sakho, both recovering from injuries, were named in the squad. Manchester City's Nasri was disappointing when France lost their World Cup play-off first leg in Ukraine in November, before they recovered to win the tie without him at Stade de France. Abidal, who is having a hard time at Monaco, suffered the same fate at the end of last year. Asked if Abidal and Nasri had lost their chance of playing in the World Cup in Brazil, Deschamps said: "Interpretations are up to you. Many players are out of ...
Griezmann gets France call, Abidal, Nasri miss out (AFP) Thursday 27 February 2014 Share Didier Deschamps has announced a 24-player squad for France's upcoming friendly against the Netherlands as their 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ preparations move into the final stretch. Deschamps handed debut call-ups to Real Sociedad striker Antoine Griezmann and Paris Saint-Germain defender Lucas Digne, while Manchester City playmaker Samir Nasri and Monaco defender Eric Abidal were omitted for the sold-out fixture. "I want to inform you that the match is a complete sell-out, which in these times is good news," said Deschamps. Griezmann's inclusion was expected after a dazzling season in La Liga that has seen him score 15 goals. Digne, who plays at left-back for the Ligue 1 leaders, and helped France win the FIFA U-20 World Cup, was preferred to Manchester City's Gael Clichy as cover for Manchester United veteran Patrice Evra. As for Nasri, his recovery from a serious knee injury put doubts in Deschamps' thinking, an ...

TEAM NEWS & LATE Fitness check : Manchester City v Chelsea Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Sergio Aguero is out for a month, so Edin Dzeko will be expected to partner the returning Alvaro Negredo. The rest of the side picks itself, with a midfield of Jesus Navas, Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and David Silva and a defence featuring Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany and Martin Demichelis. The only question mark is who gets the nod between Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov, with Kolarov favourite after Clichy started at White Hart Lane on Wednesday. Chelsea will be without Fernando Torres, so Samuel Eto'o will start at the Etihad. It seems unlikely Jose Mourinho will do any rotating, so expect to see the strongest line-up available. This could mean a start for Matic in midfield alongside Ramires, with Oscar, Eden Hazard and Willian supporting Eto'o. West Brom v Liverpool West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka has been ruled out with a knee injury, and will not feature against one of his former sides. ...
- 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 ...

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.
Saturday's matches EPL Manchester City v Arsenal We say: Home win Manchester City are still without central defender Matija Nastasic (calf), while right-back Micah Richards (hamstring) is doubtful after being forced off against Bayern Munich in midweek but left-back Gael Clichy has overcome a knock. Playmaker David Silva made a successful return to action in Germany after a six-game absence and striker Stevan Jovetic (calf) is also back in training. Arsenal will check on the fitness of full-back Bacary Sagna (hamstring). German forward Lukas Podolski has returned after his hamstring injury, but lacks full match fitness. Forward Yaya Sanogo (back), midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) are all still sidelined.

Manchester United need director of football - Damien Comolli Manchester United need someone to help them in the transfer market, according to former Tottenham and Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli. United manager David Moyes and chief executive Ed Woodward are new to their roles at the club and had a difficult summer in the transfer market. The club missed out on numerous targets before signing Everton's Marouane Fellaini for £27.5m on deadline day. "If there's a club who needs a director of football it's United," said Comolli. "It would ease the process for both individuals." Who is Damien Comolli? Damien Comolli 1996: Joined Arsenal as a European scout and is credited with discovering Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Eboue and Gael Clichy. 2005: After a spell at Saint-Etienne, joined Tottenham and signed players including Gareth Bale, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Heurelho Gomes before being sacked in 2008. 2010: After another stint at Saint-Etienne, he joined Liverpool and helped the club sign Luis Suarez, ...
Szczesny propelled himself across to parry clear. It is this decisive intervention that earned him the nod from Paul Mariner and Gab Marcotti, who notes the 23-year-old has transformed himself from being seen in many quarters as a liability into a consistent performer in a short space of time. Right-back: These are the games Seamus Coleman was built for, according to Gab Marcotti. With Stoke strolling into town Coleman could all but abandon his defensive duties and operate as the wing-back his manager wants him to be to devastating effect. With Everton pouring forward at every opportunity, Coleman was in the thick of the action, claiming a slightly fortuitous goal with a left-footed slice that was just reward for a display Steve Nicol described as "flawless". Left-back: There's a three-way split at left-back: Steve Nicol suggested Maynor Figueroa and Gab Marcotti put forward Gael Clichy, but for the sake of uniformity I've sided with Paul Mariner and gone for a chap Coleman should know well -- teammate Br ...

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.

Franck Ribery gave Bayern the lead after six minutes when his powerful shot beat Joe Hart at his near post, with the City goalkeeper getting a strong hand onto the effort but being unable to prevent the ball from hitting the back of the net.

Manchester City suffered a dismal 3-1 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich during tonight's Champions League group game. Bayern, who are the tournaments current holders, were always expected to be tough opposition, but few will have expected them to deal with City in such a comfortable manner at the Etihad. It took just seven minutes for City, who had made four changes to the team that lost to Aston Villa at the weekend, to concede, with Franck Ribery finding the net with a shot that in truth, Joe Hart should have saved. From there on in things only got worse for the Manchester side, as Pep Guardiola's Bayern, despite not fielding a striker, treated fans to a masterclass. After the break things seemed to perk up for City as Bayern momentarily took their feet off the peddle, but with 56 minutes gone the German champions doubled their lead, Thomas Muller this time finding the target after losing Gael Clichy with alarming ease. Four minutes later former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben smashed home an effort at J ...
