Hull 0-1 Man City Hull are camped on the edge of the Manchester City area now, but the visitors' 10 men are still holding out. They have got another free-kick to deal with, though, because Edin Dzeko has fouled Ahmed Elmohamady to the right of the area. Before he takes it, I should tell you that City brought on Joleon Lescott for Yaya Toure, just before Fernandinho missed that chance. Around the same time, Hull's Liam Rosenior was booked, for a foul on Pabo Zabaleta.
I shared a link earlier today to a piece by Guardian football writer Barney Ronay. It's probably a disservice to call him a football writer as if that were the only thing he could right about and because much sports journalism is, sadly, cliche and cheerleading. But outstanding sports writing is outstanding writing by any measure, and I think the man's an outstanding writer. This description of a Manchester City defender outplayed by the attacking skills of three Barcelona forwards is a jewel. "...it is probably worth noting that this could turn out to be the last time we ever get to see the three of them together very politely and insistently torturing some unfortunate Englishman – on this occasion Joleon Lescott, who despite an excellent showing by City overall seemed to be constantly flailing around in the vague vicinity of the ball at the Camp Nou, going about his business with all the assured defensive control of a drunken farmer who has just fallen off his tractor and is now engaged in thrashing . ...
Danny Mills on Manchester City... FINALLY the penny seems to be dropping,,, Lescott and Demichellis are a total waste of Space and Lescott should have gone 2 or 3 years ago City were knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona thanks in part to defensive errors from Martin Demichelis and Joleon Lescott. "Every City player is top drawer apart from the centre-half that plays alongside Vincent Kompany," said Mills. "They have all the money in the world but have not bought the right player."

On Saturday, needing a victory against Chelsea for psychological reasons, Manuel Pellegrini made three courageous decisions in the FA Cup 5th Round. Jose Mourinho’s mastery of Pellegrini required the Chilean to get one over on his Portuguese rival on this occasion. City won 2-0 on Saturday but only after the manager shook up his side with several changes. Manchester City was dominated less than two weeks earlier in the league by the same Chelsea side on the same pitch, thus Pellegrini made several controversial changes for this outing. Javi Garcia was inserted in central midfield where James Milner played versus Norwich while Milner was pushed forward in place of Jesus Navas who has given two consecutive subpar efforts as the Citizens have dropped points in the league. Perhaps most controversially, Joleon Lescott was recalled from a long exile to partner with Vincent Kompany at the heart of City’s defense. The recall of Lescott sent panic waves through many supporters when the team sheet was announced ...

CHELSEA SWEPT ASIDE AT ETIHAD HAS JUST BEEN PUBLISHED VIA UNPLUGGED SPORTS A first-half strike from Stevan Jovetic put last year's finalists a goal to the good, while Mourinho's men looked second-best throughout the contest. Samir Nasri doubled City's lead after the break and progression was all but sealed, with Joleon Lescott even having a goal disallowed for offside 15 minutes from time. Following a week in which Pellegrini and Mourinho had engaged in a war of words as the Premier League title race heats up, it was the City boss who won the argument in this fifth-round clash. VIEW FROM THE ETIHAD This was a very satisfying measure of revenge exacted by Manuel Pellegrini's side following their recent league defeat to the same opposition. Goals from Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri gave Manchester City the victory they deserved and the bragging rights over Jose Mourinho.

Norwich defender Ryan Bennett is a doubt after straining a thigh muscle in training so new signing Joseph Yobo could make his Canaries debut. Wes Hoolahan returns to the squad after his on-off transfer saga, but Michael Turner and Jonny Howson remain out.

James Milner is fit after a groin injury, and Edin Dzeko and Joleon Lescott have overcome ankle problems. Manchester City's 7-0 thrashing of Norwich saw one of the most inept performances witnessed in the Premier League. With four home wins already behind them, that victory heralded the start of Manchester City's fabulous goal glut at home with 29 coming in the next seven matches. They would have beaten any team that day, but there was still no excusing Norwich's surrender. It smacked of a team that thought it was beaten before a ball was kicked - a team haunted by the two hammerings dished out by the same opponents in 2011-12. Following Monday's defeat b ...

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.

TRANSFER UPDATE: Besiktas FC are in talks with Manchester City over a deal for Joleon Lescott.
The Northern Irishman questioned the decision to have referee Lee Mason, from Greater Manchester, take charge of the 2-1 defeat to City at the Etihad Stadium on Boxing Day Brendan Rodgers could be facing action from the FA after venting his frustration at the "horrendous" officials in Liverpool's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City. First-half goals from Vincent Kompany and Alvaro Negredo ended Liverpool's four-match winning run after Philippe Coutinho had put the visitors in front at the Etihad Stadium. The Merseyside outfit had their chances to secure at least a point in the second half, with Raheem Sterling wasting the best of them when he blazed over the crossbar from close range. The lively Sterling had been incorrectly flagged offside when he raced clear in the first half and Bolton-born referee Lee Mason turned down penalty appeals when Luis Suarez had his shirt pulled by Joleon Lescott late on. Rodgers said: "I was very proud of the players, I thought they were absolutely outstanding, but they had no he ...
According to Footy Latest, Joleon Lescott could move away from Manchester City as early as January.
3-0 second-half brace meant that Manchester City maintained their perfect home record in the with a 3-0 win over faithful might have had designs on a repeat of the recent 7-0 and 6-0 romps over and after Alvaro netted an eighth-minute free-kick, but Swansea more than matched Manuel men in the first period and Jonathan de Guzman could have equalised on the stroke of the interval. However, Nasri followed his midweek strike against Viktoria Plzen with two more, the second from a first-time finish that capped a sumptuous team move featuring James Milner and Pablo Zabaleta. The result moves Pellgrini’s men into third, six points shy of leaders Arsenal, while Swansea lie 13th. Joleon Lescott featured at centre-back in the absence of injury victim Matija Nastasic (calf), the only change to the Manchester City XI that thrashed Tottenham seven days ago. Gerhard Tremmel was preferred to Michel Vorm in goal for a Swansea team without Angel Rangel and Wilfried Bony due to respective calf and hamstring problems suff ...

Joleon Lescott 'not sure' why Manchester City are struggling away from home
5 Players Eagerly Waiting for the January Transfers! 1. Joleon Lescott With Javi Garcia and Martin Demichelis in the center defense has left out Joleon Lescott chances to make place in the team on regular basis. Lescott, who has been dropped by Hodgson even in the English team suspects that it is now time to move on to a new place. Manchester City, after they won their Premier League season conceding just 29 goals saw Lescott starting in 30 games the very season. A move to either Everton or Newcastle would be a perfect fit for his £90,000 a week wages. 2. Hugo Rodallega It might be difficult for Hugo Rodallega to get back to his impressive form that he had a few seasons back. Playing for struggling Wigan side right after he came to England, he scored 22 goals in a span of two and a half years starting in 89 games. In the year 2011/12, he had an average of a goal each 11 PL appearances. Moving to Fulham on a free transfer further ruined himself as he got behind Berbatov, Bent and Ruiz. It is time for him ...
The Five Top Worst Spending Sprees Based on the Following Season’s Results 1. Manchester City 2008 Man City, with Mark Hughes as manager, spent about a £140m in 2008 when they signed numerous players including Brazilian international Robinho for a £32.5m from Real Madrid. When the January Transfer Window opened they paid £18m for Nigel De Jong £12m for Wayne Bridge and another £14m for Craig Bellamy. The team ended the season in 10th place after buying a total of 13 players. 2. Manchester City 2009 After forking over £140m in transfer fees the previous year, City followed it up by spending another £130m in 2009. This time Hughes bought players such as Roque Santa Cruz for £18m and then paid £25m for Emmanuel Adebayor another £16m for Kolo Toure, £25.5m for Carlos Tevez and £24m for Joleon Lescott. Hughes took them to fifth place and was sacked. Roberto Mancini took over and they finished the campaign still in fifth. 3. Manchester United 2001 Man United shelled out a total of £75.5m in 2001 ...

Man City v NORWICH PREVIEW Barclays Premier League Date: Saturday, 2nd November Kick off: 15:00 GMT Venue: Etihad Stadium Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon will make his Premier League debut in place of Joe Hart, who has been dropped after a series of high-profile mistakes. Stevan Jovetic and Javi Garcia suffered injuries in midweek, while Vincent Kompany (thigh) remains sidelined. Norwich pair Alexander Tettey and Ricky van Wolfswinkel miss out with respective knee and foot injuries. Robert Snodgrass (concussion) and Nathan Redmond (hip) are also doubts. Close Match preview Even Norwich die-hards must be fearing a Manchester City backlash after Manuel Pellegrini ripped into his team following the careless defeat at Chelsea. City must stop making the sort of basic defensive mistakes that have cost five goals so far. They looked subdued in the midweek Capital One Cup win at Newcastle and they really need a convincing league victory. They're facing Norwich at just the right time for that. Chris H ...
Paper Round: Keane to return to Ireland set-up Roy Keane is on the verge of returning to the Ireland fold; Joe Hart has lost his place in Manchester City's starting XI; and Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal's bid for Luis Suarez was flawed - here are the stories making headlines in today's newspapers. Keane set for Ireland return: Roy Keane is poised to make a sensational return to football as Martin O'Neill's number two with the Republic of Ireland. The Daily Mirror is one of several papers to report that O'Neill will be confirmed as Giovanni Trapattoni’s successor next week, with Manchester United legend Keane wanted as his assistant. The paper adds that a deal is yet to be struck, but an O'Neill-Keane partnership should be in place by the time Latvia visit Dublin for a friendly on November 15. Paper Round's view: While the photo and accompanying headline on the Mirror's back page are, for some reason, terrifying, this can only be good news for the Irish. A good cop-bad cop combo at the helm could be just ...
England goalkeeper Joe Hart has paid the price for a series of recent mistakes by being dropped by Manchester City for Saturday's home game against Norwich City. City Manager Manuel Pellegrini broke the news to Hart directly on Friday, explaining that he thought it was time for a change in goal. Romania keeper Costel Pantilimon will deputise against Norwich after keeping a clean sheet in midweek against Newcastle in the Capital One Cup. Error: A mix-up between Joe Hart and Matija Nastasic saw Fernando Torres steal in to grab the crucial winner Although disappointed by the decision, Hart appreciated Pellegrini for explaining man to man and he has a much better relationship with the Chilean than previous manager Roberto Mancini. However Hart, 26, did not feel mentally affected by criticism for rushing out of his goal in the final minute at Chelsea last Sunday, which allowed Fernando Torres to score the winning goal after Hart’s mix-up with defender Nastasic. Hart has been encouraged by City’s coaches th ...
Newcastle 0 - 2 Manchester City Scorers: - Negredo 99′ Dzeko 105′ Alvardo Negredo and Edin Dzeko struck in extra time to book Manchester City's place in the last 8 of the Capital One Cup, while Costel Pantilimon kept a clean sheet to keep the pressure on Joe Hart. Newcastle deservedly took Manuel Pellegrini's side to added time and probably had the better of things over 90 minutes, but they couls not break the deadlock and instead left St James' Park digesting an unflattering 2-0 defeat. And while City's strike pair must take their share of the praise for neat finishes in the 99th and 115th minutes, Pantilimon also did everything that was asked of him. City made 10 changes from the side that was beaten by Chelsea at the weekend, the least surprising of which involved the struggling Hart stepping down. Natural rest and rotation meant that he was always likely to be excused duty but recent errors made the evening seem like an audition for his deputy. A 1st half save from Shola Ameobi, when partially uns ...

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 ...
Manuel Pellegrini insists Jack Rodwell, Joleon Lescott and Micah Richards must focus on Manchester City rather than thinking about breaking back into the World Cup squad WN
Liverpool go top, Man City back on track October 5, 2013 by AGENCE FRANCE PRESSE STURRIDGE-PALACE LONDON, England, October 5 – Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday after a 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace, while Manchester City climbed to third by beating Everton. Luis Suarez was making his first Anfield appearance since completing a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last season and with new-born son Benjamin in attendance, he broke the deadlock in the 14th minute. The goal showcased the Uruguayan’s flair for improvisation, as he hooked the ball into the net from a prone position after slipping as he shaped to shoot. Top scorer Daniel Sturridge added a second three minutes later, turning Damien Delaney inside out before lashing home his fifth league goal of the season. Captain Steven Gerrard made it 3-0 with a 38th-minute penalty, taking his tally of Premier League goals to 99, before substitute Dwight Gayle replied for the visitors with a late glan ...
Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott says his team never doubted the ability of under-fire goalkeeper Joe Hart.
match day info Man City vs Everton 17′ - Assist - Yaya Touré (Manchester City) 17′ - Goal - Negredo (Manchester City) GOAL! Just one minute later and Negredo manages to mimick Lukaku's efforts at the other end. This time it's Toure who puts him through as the striker manages to smuggle the ball under Howard in a similar manner to that which damned Hart a minute earlier. A smart finish and it's 1-1 after a topsy-turvy couple of minutes! 16′ - Assist - Phil Jagielka (Everton) 16′ - Goal - Romelu Lukaku (Everton) GOAL! Lukaku scores a wondergoal! The Belgian adroitly steps beyond Lescott with consummate ease after a forward ball by Jagielka, before striking beyond the despairing Joe Hart. It went under the goalkeeper so his contribution to the goal was questionable but the real blame has to lie with Lescott - that was a tame challenge. Nonetheless, an excellent goal from Lukaku to put Everton 1-0 up! 15′ - Everton counter once again and cause Man City and Joe Hart problems through the partnership ...
Manchester City team news v Everton Joe Hart keeps his place as the number one goalkeeper while David Silva and Joleon Lescott are also in the starting line-up.
Preview: Man City v Everton, Sat. 12:45pm, Etihad Stadium Billed as: Inconsistent City host unbeaten Everton as several players face their former club, including Jack Rodwell, Joleon Lescott and Gareth Barry The lowdown Wednesday’s meeting with Bayern Munich was humbling for Manchester City, who lost 3-1 yet could have gone down by four or five if the visitors hadn’t decided to play nice for the last half an hour and Alvaro Negredo hadn’t unleashed a strike sweeter than sugar. City were outplayed, out-passed and out-thought, but in Manuel Pellegrini they have a manager who knows how to put such a result in context. His team played poorly, it’s true, but against surely the best team in the world. The match only served to display the current gap in quality between City and Pep Guardiola’s men, not expose a team who will never perform in the Champions League. Certainly the argument to drop the clangerrific Joe Hart has a whiff of baby and bathwater about it. Manchester City would love a win over .. ...
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini defended his line-up after their derby thumping of Manchester United. City started the game with ten foreign outfield players. "There is room for English players in the team," claimed Pellegrini after strikes from Sergio Aguero (2), Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri blew United away. "We have four or five English players and I hope Micah Richards will play in the Capital One Cup," he added. "Milner usually plays, we have Joe Hart, and we also have Jack Rodwell and Joleon Lescott."
Kenwyne Jones will be in his element without Vincent Kompany in the Man City defence ALL Stokies should be jumping for joy at the absence of Manchester City skipper and defender Vincent Kompany... especially Kenwyne Jones. Kenwyne comes into the game in fine form and confidence judging by his three goals for Trinidad over the past week. And the injured Kompany will be a huge miss for City. Stoke have done so well against Man City at the Britannia that this game is no longer seen as a bonus fixture. Manuel Pellegrini's team have made a mediocre start and Kompany's injury has left them with a soft under belly in the centre of their defence. I feel that with Kenwyne on top of his game at the moment he can cause problems for Joleon Lescott and whoever plays alongside him. Kompany brings out the best in his partner and as Cardiff's 3-2 win over City showed three weeks ago, you can get at this current team. For me, tomorrow is about Stoke doing the ugly things well and not letting City settle on the ball to pre ...
Three free agent centre-backs Manchester City could consider Manchester City are light at centre-back, could they look at any of these three players? Central defence is becoming an increasing concern at Manchester City, with captain Vincent Kompany ruled out for the next month at least. The man brought in shortly before deadline, Martin Demichelis, has since injured his knee and also faces weeks on the sidelines leaving Matija Nastasic and Joleon Lescott as the only fit centre-backs, with Karim Rekik sent out on loan to the Russian Premier League. There are still a handful of free agents left on the market, so could any of them fit the bill and do a job for City as a stop-gap?

Plenty of Everton fans are recalling then manager David Moyes's furious reaction to Manchester City's tactics when they signed Joleon Lescott as he now tries to take Leighton Baines from Goodison Park to Old Trafford. Everton instantly rejected Manchester United's opening £12m bid for Baines - but you can be certain they will return swiftly with an improved offer. Moyes is unlikely to want this to develop into a saga, and certainly not an acrimonious one that might damage the warmth and respect he was shown by Everton supporters after he announced he was ending his 11-year tenure to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at United. It would be no surprise if Everton felt tempted to revisit Moyes' response to City's Lescott bids if the Baines situation is not resolved quickly. Everton's response will be to table an improved contract offer to Baines. The more likely developing scenario is Everton owner Bill Kenwright having to show real resolve to ensure he gets the best price possible for the 28-year-old England defen ...

Following the arrival of Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, Sky Sports takes a look at the issues which need to be addressed at the Etihad Stadium. Roberto Mancini's man-management skills were thought to be slightly strained and so there are plenty of bridges to build. Pellegrini also needs to address who he wants to be in his squad along with embracing City's desire for a 'holistic' approach. Can he prove a success? Time will tell. Resolve contract issues one way or the other Carlos Tevez had a turbulent relationship with Roberto Mancini Carlos Tevez, Gareth Barry and Joleon Lescott all have a year left on their contracts, so will Pellegrini make them part of his plans by offering them new deals, recoup some money for the club now or let them wind down and leave for free next year? Tevez's difficult relationship with Mancini was mostly put to one side last season, with the Argentine chipping in with 16 goals in all competitions. Some big European names are said to be circling Tevez, but his on-field e ...
LISBON, Portugal -- Sporting Lisbon defender Xandao scored with an audacious back-heeled shot in a 1-0 win over Manchester City on Thursday in the first leg of the last 16 of the Europa League. Glean Hall Jersey . Xandao pounced in the 51st minute in a goalmouth scramble after keeper Joe Hart had failed to hold Matias Fernandezs dipping free kick or palm it safely out. Sporting, lying fourth in its domestic championship and playing under its second manager this season, proved to be a tough adversary and had Man City on the ropes for long spells. City tried to slow the pace of the game in the first half, but after falling behind the Premier League leaders sharpened their attack by introducing Samir Nasri and Mario Balotelli, who hit the goal frame with a late header. City had an early setback when central defender Vincent Kompany went off injured within the first 10 minutes and was replaced by Joleon Lescott. Hart blocked Joao Pereiras early effort as Sporting pressed forward. But at the other end, goalkee ...

Man City planning massive clearout to make room for big money deals Manchester City are ready for a massive squad overhaul this season. The Daily Star Sunday says City will return to their big spending ways in the summer, though will adhere to UEFA's draconian financial fair play laws. They are planning to raise cash through sales and slash £50m from the wage bill. Mario Balotelli has already gone for almost £20m and the futures of Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez, Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Scott Sinclair and Maicon are all in doubt. In addition, Kolo Toure and two players out on loan – Roque Santa Cruz and Wayne Bridge – are out of contract. There could be other casualties, too. The message is loud and clear – stand by for a summer of stunning transfer ­activity at City.

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.

Why City want Varane - Many have pointed out Manchester City's defensive frailties this season, despite the Premier League champions conceding just 21 goals in the Premier League this year – the lowest in the league. Nevertheless, with the future of Joleon Lescott yet to be decided, not to mention injury to Vincent Kompany, defensive reinforcements have been mooted.
Roberto Mancini's Manchester City job safe for time being as manager prepares to swing axe for Leeds FA Cup tie Translatin Sendiri !!! Roberto Mancini is planning wholesale changes to his Manchester City team for Sunday’s FA Cup tie with Leeds as he attempts to reassert his authority on an increasingly disgruntled squad at the Etihad Stadium. Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Gareth Barry and Javi García are all under threat of losing their place. Goalkeeper Joe Hart is likely to be rested in favour of Romanian goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon, as has been the case in the FA Cup this season. Mancini, who flew to Italy without speaking to his players following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Southampton, has done little in recent weeks to ease the tensions within his squad that have been present for much of this campaign.
Premier League - Comedy of errors as Southampton shock City - Southampton 3 Manchester City 1 Manchester City's title challenge suffered near-fatal damage in a calamitous 3-1 defeat to Southampton that witnessed a hilarious own goal from Gareth Barry and a terrible error from Joe Hart. City went behind after only seven minutes when Jason Puncheon profited from a Barry mistake but it was the nature of the following two goals that ensured the champions' trip to St Mary's would be remembered as a comedy of errors. Hart embarrassingly let a shot slip out of his hands after 22 minutes, allowing Steven Davis to tap home from close range, before Barry then met a Rickie Lambert cross in the second half with a perfect, measured side-footed finish into the corner of his own goal. City had already pulled one back when Edin Dzeko started and finished a fine breakaway goal, but an insipid performance meant they could not prevent a first Premier League victory for Mauricio Pochettino which takes Southampton 15th, six p ...
Man City keen on Real Madrid starlet The Daily Express is reporting that Manchester City will keep tabs on Real Madrid’s talented defender, Raphael Varane, and might look to bring him to the Etihad Stadium in the summer Transfer Window. The Frenchman has earned a number of starts for the La Liga champions this campaign and showed how good he is in the Copa del Rey semi-final against Barcelona, scoring in the 1-1 draw. Unsurprisingly, this performance has caught the attention of some of the richest clubs in Europe, with Paris Saint Germain and City both keen on the 19-year-old. However, it looks as though the English Premier League outfit might be leading the way at the moment and Roberto Mancini does want to add to his back four in the summer. If Varane was to join, then Joleon Lescott might be allowed to leave the club and search for first-team football elsewhere. The defender might weigh up his options in the coming months though and if he wants to stay at Real, then it is likely he will as they are n ...
Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane has been linked with a summer transfer to Manchester City
Top four is still possible if Liverpool FC cut out sloppy errors. THERE were loads of positives to take from two really tough away games but I’m gutted that Liverpool FC don’t have more to show for those performances. We could have picked up six points but ended up with just two after conceding leads against both Arsenal and Manchester City. I’m convinced we’re moving in the right direction but we still lack that ruthless streak. Individual errors have cost us massively this season and it was the same at the Etihad. But there are real signs of improvement and I’m optimistic about the rest of the season. Steven Gerrard is right in saying that fourth place is still a realistic target. Those people who write us off don’t know anything about football. Liverpool produced the greatest comeback in history back in 2005 and making up nine points on Tottenham is certainly possible. Spurs have lost Jermain Defoe and if Gareth Bale got injured they would be in real trouble. The only games we’ve got left ...

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini tonight hit out at Liverpool and the match officials for failing to stop play after a Daniel Agger foul in the potentially pivotal incident of the game which saw his club drop a further two points behind Manchester United at the top of the Premier League. Mancini was incandescent after an awkward challenge on Edin Dzeko by Agger, half an hour into the match, went undetected by fourth official Andy Halliday, meaning that referee Anthony Taylor allowed Liverpool to advance up the field in the counter-attacking move which saw Sturridge score his fourth goal in six games since arriving at Liverpool. Mancini has felt for some time that City are not getting the decisions from referees that other clubs enjoy and before flying out of Manchester to Italy last night he repeated that allegation. "Sometimes it can be normal, people make mistakes, but referee makes mistakes every game," he said. "Liverpool should probably have stopped. Dzeko was on the floor. We didn't know what ...
THE post-Mario Balotelli era at Manchester City began in lacklustre fashion as it was held to a 0-0 draw at Queens Park Rangers today that prevented it from making up ground on Manchester United. Victory for City would have cut United's lead to just two points, but instead Alex Ferguson's side will tackle Southampton tomorrow with an opportunity to re-open a seven-point lead at the English Premier League summit. The troublesome Italian striker is expected to complete a switch to AC Milan tomorrow, and City could have done with some extra firepower at Loftus Road. An injury to Vincent Kompany obliged the champion to start with Spanish midfielder Javi Garcia at centre-back, but it began with both Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero in attack as they sought to exploit bottom club QPR's defensive frailties. Joleon Lescott blazed an early chance over the crossbar from close range, while Pablo Zabaleta headed against the bar from a David Silva cross and Aguero had a goal ruled out for offside.
QPR v Manchester CiTY City are without captain Vincent Kompany, meaning a probable start for Joleon Lescott. Ryan Nelsen is set for his final QPR appearance. Aston Villa v NEWCASTLE January signings Moussa Sissoko, Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mniwa and Yoan Gouffran could all be in the Newcastle squad. SUNDERLAND v SWANSEA Neither manager can call on any reinforcements, ­ but Michael Laudrup is likely to recall Michel Vorm in place of Swansea's 'cup keeper' Gerhard Tremmel. Stoke City v WIGAN Glenn Whelan is free to play for Stoke after avoiding punishment for his FA Cup challenge on Manchester City's Javi Garcia.

Manchester City are looking to add new depth to their central defense this January whether they want to or not. While the absence of Vincent Kompany has been avoided and the club are glad to have seen him escape his red card after it was overturned, the club have to look at that potential crisis as a warning that they need more first team central defenders. According to the Mirror, Manchester City are looking to try to pry away one of Borussia Dortmund's two star center halves before the end of January. Both 24-year-old's, Neven Subotic and Mats Hummels are two of the hottest properties on multiple club's want lists, but can Manchester City get one, and why could they be forced to at least try to splash their cash in hopes of Dortmund accepting. Vincent Kompany Red Card, Crisis Averted or Foreshadowing Vincent Kompany's red card against Arsenal has seen the central defensive crisis at Manchester City go into overdrive. Despite it being rescinded, how bad would it have been without him? At the current mome ...
SAMF: The assistant referee who told Joleon Lescott to thank the Manchester City fans at the Emirates on Sunday has been removed from duty for Tuesday's FA Cup third-round replay between West Bromwich Albion and Queen's Park Rangers as punishment by referees' officials. John Brooks captured the imagination of fans when he was caught on camera telling Lescott that the City fans deserved to be thanked because of the high ticket prices they had paid to watch the Premier League game at the Emirates. During the post-match handshakes, the Sky Sports microphones broadcast Brooks saying to Lescott: "They've paid 62 quid over there, go and see them".
Football - Premier League Kompany has Arsenal red card rescinded Manchester City have successfully appealed against the sending off of captain Vincent Kompany during the 2-0 win at Arsenal. The Belgian centre-back was shown a straight red card by referee Mike Dean for a challenge on Jack Wilshere with 14 minutes remaining at the Emirates Stadium. City were quick to announce their intention to appeal and, following a Football Association disciplinary hearing, have now confirmed their claim for wrongful dismissal has been upheld. The FA has also released a statement which reads: "An independent regulatory commission has today upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal regarding Manchester City's Vincent Kompany. "The defender was dismissed for serious foul play during his side's match against Arsenal on Sunday, January 13, 2013. As a result, Kompany's three-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect." Had the appeal failed, Kompany, 26, would have been banned for Premier League games against Fulham ...

Manchester City clinched an eventful win at Arsenal to keep up the pressure on leaders Manchester United. The Gunners had Laurent Koscielny sent off after 10 minutes for hauling down Edin Dzeko in the box, but Dzeko saw the resulting penalty saved. City poured forward and James Milner put them ahead with an angled finish. Dzeko made it 2-0 from close range but Arsenal dug in after half-time and Vincent Kompany's late red card meant both sides finished with 10 men. Kompany will feel the decision, for what referee Mike Dean adjudged to be a reckless tackle on Jack Wilshere, was harsh but it gave the Gunners hope in the last 15 minutes. Even then, the home side struggled to create chances, and their first serious shot on target came in the 90th minute when Theo Walcott beat Joe Hart but saw Joleon Lescott clear off the line. City's win did not end up being as resounding as it had threatened to be, but it was still a crucial result in the title race. Manchester United's victory over Liverpool earlier on Sunda ...

Everton What they need in a nutshell: To lock up Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini until 1 February. Window shopping: Their aim for January has to be keeping Fellaini and Baines more than signing anyone. David Moyes will not discuss a new contract until the window closes and, in terms of his future as their manager, it is important they don't sell either of them. They might also need a new centre-back. Sylvain Distin has come back into the picture because Johnny Heitinga has not had a great season but Distin is 35 now. Joleon Lescott would be ideal if they could take him on loan and do a deal with Manchester City about his wages.
