top football stories monday 18 august 2014 Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed striker Edin Dzeko is on the verge of extending his contract with the club. Holger Badstuber played his first competitive game in more than 20 months as Bayern Munich easily beat minnows Preussen Munster in the German Cup. Manuel Pellegrini paid tribute to the character of his Manchester City side following their 2-0 victory over Newcastle United. Bayern Munich attacker Mario Gotze has admitted that his side are still not fully fit after their exploits in the World Cup this summer. Manchester United's Wayne Rooney has labelled last season's seventh-place finish a "disaster" - but says new boss Louis van Gaal will set things right. Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta says that Aaron Ramsey reminds him of Cesc Fabregas and feels that his team-mate will only keep improving. Manager Manuel Pellegrini is keen for Manchester City to avoid a repeat of the "disaster" they experienced after they first won the Premier League ...
I`M NOT A 25M PLAYER.Arteta. Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has criticised the club’s stance when it comes to contract renewals for players aged over 30, and concedes he is unsure about his future at the Emirates Stadium. Arteta, aged 32, will see his current deal expire next summer and will sit down with the club at the end of the season to *** his position. The Gunners have a policy whereby players of 30-years-old and over are offered only one-year contract extensions when their respective agreements expire - something that has led to the premature departures of a number of stars. This stance is set to see Bacary Sagna leave Arsenal this summer, with the French full-back set to accept a free transfer to Manchester City, with the Premier League champions prepared to offer him more secure and lucrative terms. And the prospects for Arteta do not appear to be particularly positive, despite being something of a mainstay in the Arsenal midfield, with the Spaniard likely to be more dispensable than Sagna .. ...
Five matches that decided the 2013-14 Premier League title By John Brewin | May 15, 2014 4:10:41 AM PDT After a 2013-14 Premier League title race of twists and turns, John Brewin selects the five most decisive games of the season as Manchester City ultimately claimed glory ahead of Liverpool on the final day. Manchester City 4-1 Manchester United, Sept. 22 This was the Sunday afternoon when it became clear that the champions would not be putting up a credible defence of their title. Three minutes either side of half-time crashingly delivered that message. David Moyes' Manchester United were destroyed by a City team that looked streets ahead. In the 17th minute, Sergio Aguero converted after attempts had rained down on David De Gea's goal. United's best hope was holding on for half-time and that Moyes might perform a tactical or motivational miracle. Yaya Toure's 45th-minute strike negated that, and whatever Moyes might have said had no effect as two quick goals by Aguero and Samir Nasri followed. Thereaft ...
Jamie Redknapp says Mathieu Flamini has proved he needs to play in more big games for Arsenal until Arsene Wenger signs a younger model. The Frenchman scored a surprise equaliser for the Gunners in their 1-1 draw with Premier League title favourites Manchester City and impressed in a midfield role alongside Mikel Arteta. Redknapp said Arsenal benefited from having two hard-working players in the centre of the pitch and called on Wenger to use that duo more often in crucial matches, at least until he signs a younger player who can do a similar job.
Chelsea vs. Arsenal: 6 Things We Learned from the Gunners' Embarrassing Defeat 1.Arsene Wenger Was Ready for the 'Game of the Season,' but His Team Weren't: Before the game, Arsene Wenger spoke to the media who were previewing his 1000th match. He talked of how tight things were in the four-horse title race. Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City's form and mental attitudes mean that no team can afford to slip up. He told the press conference, as per the Daily Mail: "It’s the game of the season for us because it will be against a direct opponent." Unfortunately for Le Prof, Chelsea were by far and away the better team long before the ragged Gunners resorted to damage limitation with 10 men. The complete and utter lack of pace in Arsenal's midfield meant that they were on the back foot right from the off. Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were bypassed time and time through central midfield. Perhaps the occasion of playing in their legendary manager's 1000th game was too much for certain players. ...
Arteta: You need a big squad (PA) Tuesday 25 February 2014 Share Arsenal's strength in depth through midfield can give them an edge in the English Premier League title race, according to Mikel Arteta. While many pundits had predicted a new year collapse, the Gunners trail leaders Chelsea by just a point heading into the final dozen matches of the campaign, although third-place Manchester City have a game in hand. Much had been made of Arsenal's lack of attacking back-up for main frontman Olivier Giroud following the season-ending injury to Theo Walcott, but Arsene Wenger certainly has plenty of options in a supporting role. Arteta had returned to the starting XI in Saturday's 4-1 win over Sunderland following suspension for the UEFA Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich, with Mathieu Flamini on the bench. Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who had been in sublime form before a thigh injury sidelined him on Boxing Day, is close to a return - all of which will bolster Arsenal's selection choices for the run- ...
Five-star Liverpool thrash Arsenal 08 February By Reuters London - Liverpool crushed Premier League leaders Arsenal 5-1 with a stunning display of attacking football at Anfield on Saturday that revived their title hopes and raised doubts about the visitors' championship credentials. The first four goals came in the opening 20 minutes as Liverpool ripped a disorganised Arsenal side to shreds, turning what has long been regarded as a three-horse title race into a four-way battle with Liverpool back in the hunt. Two early goals from Martin Skrtel, a Raheem Sterling double and one from Daniel Sturridge lifted Liverpool to 50 points with 13 matches left to play, five points behind Arsenal and three behind Manchester City and Chelsea who are in action later. The only bright spot for the shell-shocked Gunners, who went into the match unbeaten in eight league games, came when Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta scored with a 69th minute penalty. It took Liverpool less than a minute to open the scoring when their Slov ...
Star Returns – Arsenal’s Likely XI vs Crystal Palace Arsenal lost their top spot to Manchester City after dropping points against Southampton in midweek. The gunners will hope to get back to winning ways when they face Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. As far as team news is concerned, Arsenal will again be without star midfielder Jack Wilshere because of injury, moreover Flamini is out through suspension. In such a scenario, it is expected that Czech star Rosikcy will return to the starting XI as a CM playing alongside Mikel Arteta. Wenger claimed: “We could have Rosicky back again for Sunday. He had problems after surgery on his nose. So we lose Flamini but we gain Rosicky.” On the other hand, Chamberlain was impressive after coming on against Southampton and should get deserved start ahead of Gnabry. Monreal was torrid in the last game and it is likely he will be benched to make way for Gibbs in the starting XI. Here is Arsenal’s likely XI vs Crystal Palace. SZCZESNY, SAGNA, M ...
Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has returned to training after a sprained ankle and is available for the visit of Coventry in the FA Cup fourth round. Midfield trio Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Aaron Ramsey remain sidelined but Alex Oxlade- Chamberlain could return. Coventry manager Steve Pressley expects Leon Clarke to play despite the striker handing in a transfer request. Fellow striker Callum Wilson misses out with a shoulder injury. Arsenal are a point clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League and the Friday scheduling of the visit of the Sky Blue gives them an extra days' rest before the trip to Southampton on Tuesday. As well as the league, Manager Arsene Wenger also recognises the FA Cup as a route to a first trophy since 2005 as he looks to avoid a repeat of last season's shock defeat by Championship side Blackburn. "We have to prepare seriously for this game, because we are on a good run and it will be really not welcome at all not to take this game seriously," said the Frenc ...
LONDON EVENING STANDARD Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta believes this is the toughest season in the history of the Premier League, but is confident his team are up to the challenge of winning the title. Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their bid to sign a striker this month after Real Madrid informed them they will not allow Alvaro Morata to leave the club. Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has urged Victor Moses to buck up his ideas or risk having his season-long loan move from Chelsea terminated. MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS David Moyes says he senses embattled Manchester United are about to turn a corner despite the Capital One Cup semi-final first leg defeat at Sunderland. Joleon Lescott's Manchester City future is in the balance with West Ham believed to be interested, while Blues boss Manuel Pellegrini is thought to be interested in Eliaquim Mangala.

Liverpool will be top of the Premier League on Christmas Day after Arsenal and Chelsea played out a goalless draw in driving rain at the Emirates Stadium. Jose Mourinho's men wasted the two best chances of a cagey first half, with Frank Lampard striking the underside of the crossbar with a fierce volley and Willian forcing a low save from Wojciech Szczesny. Clear chances remained at a premium after the break, but Olivier Giroud spurned two big opportunities for either side on the night and Cesar Azpilicueta cleared Bacary Sagna's header off the line late on. Jose Mourinho made it 10 matches against Arsene Wenger as Blues manager without suffering defeat as the Gunners saw their winless Premier League run extended to three games. Wenger made four changes from the side beaten 6-3 by Manchester City last time out, Thomas Vermaelen replacing the injured Laurent Koscielny in defence, while Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta came in for the suspended Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini in midfield. Frank Lampard was ...
Arsene Wenger’s men dropped to third in the table following wins for Liverpool and Manchester City on Saturday so the north Londoners will be looking for a win to regain top spot. But they will have to do it without the services of defender Laurent Koscielny after the Frenchman was ruled out with a nasty cut to his knee suffered during last weeks defeat to Man City. Thomas Vermaelen will continue to deputise at the back. The big decision for Wenger will be who to start in the centre of midfield. Mikel Arteta seems likely to return which may see Mathieu Flamini drop out with Aaron Ramsey keeping his place in the starting eleven. Jack Wilshere starts his two-match ban for making an obscene gesture towards the City fans last week. Theo Walcott should start having scored two goals last time out while Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil are likely to make up the attack behind Olivier Giroud. As for Chelsea, Jose Mourinho is expected to make some changes to the side that crashed out of the Capital One Cup to Sunderl ...
Andre Villas-Boas has seven games to convince the board he is the man to take Tottenham forward. Jordan Henderson admits he is glad he turned down Fulham and stayed at Liverpool to keep learning from role model Steven Gerrard. After making a return from injury against West Brom, Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has admitted he must avoid rushing back in future. David Moyes' use of Shinji Kagawa on the left has attracted criticism, but the Japan international has insisted he is used to the position. Everton captain Phil Jagielka has backed David Moyes to come good after a difficult start to his career at Old Trafford. Liverpool are set to make a January bid for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka as Brendan Rodgers plans for life after Steven Gerrard. Raheem Sterling is set to remain at Anfield despite prior reports suggesting he may be loaned out in January. Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta is in no doubt Everton deserve their place at the top end of the Premier League, but will be out ...
Former Gunner and Chelsea star could make return to Arsenal in January transfer window, but Manchester City may attempt to hijack deal. Arsenal will battle Manchester City in January for the right to sign Lassana Diarra from Lokomotiv Moscow, according to the Daily Mirror. The former Chelsea midfielder has greatly impressed in the Russian side's ranks since moving to the capital in August, and both Arsene Wenger and Manuel Pellegrini are on the lookout for a defensive midfielder. Diarra also previously played for Arsenal in 2007, but was rarely given a first team opportunity by Wenger, and had more success with Chelsea and Portsmouth. He signed for Real Madrid in 2009 before again moving on. Diarra is tenacious in the tackle, athletic, and a fine passer of the ball, and at 28 he is younger than both Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta, while not likely to cost the earth.

Football News; Midfielder Mathieu Flamini misses the Emirates Stadium clash due to a groin injury. Mikel Arteta is suspended following his sending-off in Saturday's win at Crystal Palace, but Jack Wilshere (ankle) is fit. Serge Gnabry will be involved, if he can shake off an ankle knock ,along with Isaac Hayden and Ryo Miyaichi, but Theo Walcott (abdominal), Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) are all still out. Mourinho will give his fringe players an opportunity in Chelsea's second match in three days. The players who featured in Sunday's Premier League defeat of Manchester City will be rested, with a similar side selected to the one which won the previous round of the League Cup at Swindon. World Cup winner Juan Mata, Brazil defender David Luiz, Senegal striker Demba Ba, Ghana midfielder Michael Essien and Belgium forward Kevin de Bruyne are among those set for an opportunity, along with Australia goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer. Birmingham's Chr ...
a, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs Wilshere, Diaby Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski Walcott Chelsea have an almost fully fit squad to choose from, with Oriol Romeu (knee) the only long-term absentee. John Terry has returned to fitness but is unlikely to start. Nigerian duo Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel have both travelled to South Africa for the Africa Cup of Nations so are unavailable for selection. Branislav Ivanovic was rested against Southampton but should return to the starting XI in place of Gary Cahill, while Demba Ba is expected to continue up front. Arsene Wenger is still without Mikel Arteta (calf), who has been sidelined until the end of the month, so Abou Diaby is likely to continue in midfield in his absence. Laurent Koscielny has served the one-match suspension he picked up against Manchester City, and could return to defence ahead of Per Mertesacker. Gervinho is on Africa Cup of Nations duty with the Ivory Coast, while Tomas Rosicky (calf) has been ruled out of Sunday’s derby. DID YOU ...
Jack Wilshere will play for Arsenal in FA Cup replay against Swansea. THE GUARDIAN. Arsène Wenger will select Jack Wilshere for the replay against Swansea but has acknowledged the England midfielder will need to be rested over the second half of the season if he is to retain his zest across a cluttered schedule. Wilshere returned to the first-team after a 17-month absence with ankle and knee complaints in late October and has started all but two of the domestic fixtures for which he has been available since. He was Arsenal's most industrious player in Sunday's home defeat to Manchester City, a game in which the hosts were forced to play with 10 men for 80 minutes, though Wenger will be reliant upon the 21-year-old for the foreseeable future with Mikel Arteta expected to miss the next fortnight with a calf injury. Asked whether he would look to rest Wilshere with an awkward trip to Chelsea looming on Sunday and the resumption of the Champions League, against Bayern Munich, to come next month, Wenger said: ...

Thomas Vermaelen thinks "World Class" Jack Wilshere can save Arsenal's season. The Gunners face a huge game with Swansea on Wednesday, because the FA Cup is their most realistic hope of silverware this season with their chances of reaching the top four in the balance and a tough Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich looming. Wednesday's replay against a side that has already won at the Emirates this season will be a test of Arsenal's character, and their big players will have to stand up to be counted - especially with key midfielder Mikel Arteta out with a calf injury. But captain Vermaelen reckons they can put their faith in Wilshere and claims they are thankful that the Swansea game comes just three days after Sunday's devastating defeat to Manchester City. Arsenal are facing a run of games which will define their season, with Swansea, Chelsea, West Ham and Liverpool all before the end of January. Vermaelen said: "Jack will be important in the next three weeks, absolutely. You can see sinc ...

Downing shines; Barry rescues City * Stewart Downing was the star for Liverpool as they ran out 4-0 winners against Fulham while a last-gasp strike from Gareth Barry gave City a point against Reading. Barry's late goal spared Manchester City's blushes as they edged out bottom side Reading 1-0 at a relieved Etihad Stadium. Roberto Mancini's side trailed local rivals and current league leaders Manchester United by six points in the title race heading into this weekend, and they appeared to be at risk of losing more ground thanks to a dogged defensive effort from the Royals. But Barry rose to head home in stoppage time from David Silva's cross to trim United's lead to three points before their clash with Swansea on Sunday. In the early game, Mikel Arteta's penalty proved enough for Arsenal to defeat Wigan 1-0 and make it three Premier League victories in a row for the first time since March. There was very little between the sides and it was the hosts who had the best chance of the first half but it was wast ...
Premier League ROUND-UP Manchester City left it late to beat Reading, Everton moved into the top four, while Liverpool thrashed Fulham. Newcastle got the better of Queens Park Rangers, West Brom ended Norwich's long unbeaten run, Tottenham were held to a goalless draw by Stoke and Sunderland boosted their survival hopes with a 1-0 win at Southampton Gareth Barry's last-gasp goal earned Manchester City a dramatic 1-0 win over battling Reading at the Etihad Stadium. City dominated for long periods of the game, but they could not find a way past a resolute Reading defence. Reading had strong claims for a penalty waved away in the second half when Jay Tabb appeared to be fouled by City defender Karim Rekik. It looked like City were going to drop two crucial points in the race for the title race until Barry popped up in the closing seconds to head home David Silva's cross to break Reading's hearts. Arsenal made it three Premier League wins on the trot with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Wigan. Mikel Arteta's sec ...
Fernando Torres scored twice as Chelsea warmed up for the Club World Cup with a 3-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Rafa Benitez had insisted ahead of kick-off that he had not given up hope of winning the Premier League title and his players responded with a stylish performance as the Blues closed the gap on second-placed Manchester City to four points. Torres was the star of the show with two goals in the first half, while Juan Mata added a third early in the second half and Adam Johnson's fantastic strike proved to be little more than a consolation for Sunderland Beleaguered Arsenal ended a miserable week with victory but it took a penalty that never was to set up a 2-0 win over stuttering West Brom. Santi Cazorla's dive made for an unsatisfying opener but Mikel Arteta converted a second spot-kick after the break to give an irritable Arsene Wenger a first win in five.

Comedy Gold: Santi Cazorla and Mikel Arteta mock Manchester City and Arsene Wenger in Spanish interview: via
Arsenal were left 10 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after being stunned by Norwich, who won their first top-flight game of the season. Grant Holt put the home side ahead when he slotted in after keeper Vito Mannone had parried Alexander Tettey's shot. Michael Turner headed wide for the Canaries as the subdued Gunners struggled to create chances. Mikel Arteta had a late shot saved by John Ruddy but Norwich held firm to secure the victory. Arsenal had seen Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United win before their game at Carrow Road but could not match the results of their rivals as they dropped further off the Premier League pace. Manager Arsene Wenger's desperation to shake his side out of their stupor even stretched to giving attacking midfielder Serge Gnabry, 17, his league debut, although the move proved in vain as his side suffered their first away defeat this season. Wenger left Jack Wilshere on the bench on his return from 14 months out with ankle and knee injuries, and his side ...
Jack Wilshere’s return to the Arsenal squad is the best news for a team that is trying to play smart football. As written here before – Arsenal, in the age of expensive superstars of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, can only win the league (or any other trophies) by having the smartest team on the field. Arsenal can no longer compete for the stars and therefore cannot play with the most talented individuals. However, with Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere Arsenal have one of the smartest midfield-trios in the world. They have the ability to hold onto the ball with their passing ability and intelligent movement. Arsenal can now win games much like Spain won their titles, not by being the fastest or the strongest, but by being smart, patient and calculated – Spain took the sting out of the rivals’ strength and energy. They beat them with their brains. Arsenal, with Wilshere and Cazorla as “Xavi and Iniesta” and Arteta as “Sergio Busquets”, can now be smart, patient ...
Arsenal announce pre-tax profit of €46m for 2011-12 Arsenal have announced a pre-tax profit of €46 million on turnover of €306m for 2011-12. The club also confirm player trading profit of€33m following the sale of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri to Barcelona and Manchester City respectively. After a summer that saw the arrival of Mikel Arteta, Per Mertesacker, Yossi Benayoun, Gervinho, Park Chu-Young, Andre Santos and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the north Londoners have also seen their wage bill jump from €157m to €181m, leaving only City, Chelsea and Manchester United ahead ofthem. Arsene Wenger spoke about the club’s financial position – something he has kept a keen interest in during his time at the club. He told reporters: “We want to spend our money in the right way. We are not scared tospend the money. “With some clubs we can’t compete on certain players – and for the rest, we only want to bring in players who add somethingto our squad and give a chance as well to the young player ...
Arsenal’s worst fear has come true TERRY WON'T PLAY- IS NOT KIND OF RELEVANT THOUGH... BUT ARSENAL POINT OF DUTY TOMORROW IS? RSI (C) -; CHELSEA advantage is four points but it would be a massive boost for GUNNERS and big blow for CHELSEA if ARSENAL win. Good news: Drogba won’t play for them. Bad news: John Terry probably won’t play as well. CHELSEA signed some great talents like Hazard, Oscar, Moses and Marin in order to look watchable. After they conceded two goals against Reading, they kept a clean sheet in four matches in the Premiership. Despite their leading position they have been far from brilliant. In two tough matches against Manchester City in the Community Shield and Champions’ League opener against Juventus they failed to win. It should be said they managed to score twice in both of those matches but they also conceded five goals in process. + There is certainly lack of depth in their attack since Fernando Torres is the only natural striker in THEIR team but their attacking midfielder ...

Mikel Arteta believes Arsenal's 1-1 draw against current champions Manchester City proves they can challenge for the Premier League title.
Arteta - I’m totally happy with new role Mikel Arteta says he’s enjoying his new role in the heart of Arsenal’s midfield. The Spanish playmaker has had to curb his attacking instincts this season, with Arsène Wenger deploying him as part of a two-man shield in front of the defence. And Arteta is happy to play in a deeper position if doing so helps the team. “It is a big transition but it is more a mental thing. The boss is convinced that is the best thing for the team and I am too, so let’s do it,” he told Arsenal Player. “If it works, and in games like that where you probably think you need a more physical presence but you still create and are able to match the physical ability and the way they play, it reinforces your belief. I am totally happy that is a good way to play.” A late Laurent Koscielny equaliser preserved Arsenal’s unbeaten start to the season against Manchester City on Sunday. Arteta believes the resilience and attitude of the team has been a catalyst for their solid form ...

Man City want £10M for QPR, Arsenal target De JongArsenal prepare bid for Man City midfielder De Jong Submitted by tribalfootball.com on Mon, 06/11/2012 - 03:59 Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eyeing Manchester City midfielder Nigel De Jong.

The Arsenal boss is looking to get his shopping done early this year and needs to fill holes in his midfield after injuries to Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta.
Van Persie wins Goal of the Season award Robin Van Persie's sensational match-winning volley against Everton has been voted as Arsenal's goal of the season. The striker latched on to Alex Song's ball over the top before firing past Tim Howard with an exquisite finish. In the Dutchman's 37-goal haul for the season, this was the best of the lot and picked up 49 per cent of the votes cast in our fans' poll. Mikel Arteta's late winner against Manchester City ran in second with 12 per cent of the votes. The midfielder won the ball in midfield before driving forward and planting an unstoppable effort past Joe Hart in the dying moments. In third place we had a tie. Nobody could settle between Van Persie's brilliant equaliser in the 5-2 win over Tottenham or Thierry Henry's fairytale return strike against Leeds. Both goals earned 10 per cent of the votes each.

7 things learnt from Arsenal 1-0 Manchester City 1) Manchester City’s title challenge is all but over. Mikel Arteta may have putthe final nail in the coffin, but Mario Balotelli was equally instrumental in his sides downfall. It is looking increasingly likely that Manchester United will clinch their 12th league title at Eastlands in three weeks time. 2) Mario Balotelli will not play for Manchester City again. Mario shouldhave received multiple red-cards inhis disgusting display against Arsenal. His challenge on Alex Song was awful and he has created a huge amount of tension in the City dressing room. The hapless Italian was eventually sent off shortly after Mikel Arteta’s goal and will subsequently serve at 1-match ban. However, you imagine that a few games will be added to that once the FA look at his tackle onSong. Mancini also seemed to be suggesting that he wouldn’t play him forthe remaining 6 games of the season anyway. 3) Roberto Mancini will be looking for another job at the end of the season ...

Mikel Arteta scored a *** late on to hand three points to Arsenal and effectively end ten man Man City's title hopes. Mario Balotelli commits
RECAP: Massive goal. Absolutely massive. It has been coming. Mikel Arteta robs David Pizarro in midfield and drives towards the box before unleashing a shot that beats Joe Hart to his left and finds the bottom corner of the net. Manchester City's title challenge is crumbling... That young lad with his banner may feel like reassessing his decision not to cry now.
Result: Arsenal 1-0 Manchester City That's the end, and that is the end for Manchester City. They've blown it, blown up, imploded, gone to pieces, narked it right up. Remember the 6-1 at Old Trafford, when the rest of the Premier League was running scared of them? When some observers were already queuing up to place the crown on their heads? Instead, here are their last five games: lost, won, drawn, drawn, lost. Ten points dropped at a time when Manchester United have been churning out victories like cheap toys off a production line. Their time will come again, surely. The glum faces of Sheikh Mansour on the Emirates balcony are also defiant faces, and you can be sure they are already identifying summer transfer targets. Whether Roberto Mancini will still be there to manage them is anybody's guess. I've not mentioned Balotelli, the man who will surely share the headlines with Mikel Arteta tomorrow. Whether Balotelli's misdirected rage has been a symptom or the cause of City's slump, his display today was ...
