Sergio Aguero gives Manuel Pellegrini a Roberto Mancini moment... and Manchester City's manager must capitalise IAN LADYMAN: Deep in to added time, Manuel Pellegrini was offered his Roberto Mancini moment. One chance for salvation, Sergio Aguero’s right foot. You know the story.
Black Friday was turned inky blue for one City super fan - after Sergio Aguero autographed his back so it could be turned into a tatoo. Alan Smith, 55, already has six tributes to his club emblazoned across his body, including a full back celebration of City’s 3-2 win against Queen Park Rangers in May 2012 - the result which gave the club its first Premier League title. The body art is topped by the City badge, complete with the Latin slogan ‘Superbia In Proelia’ - or ‘Pride in Battle’. It also features portraits of Aguero, skipper Vincent Kompany, ex-manager Roberto Mancini and keeper Joe Hart. So after the striker’s book signing became an impromptu back signing, Alan high-tailed it to the tattoo parlour - and Aguero’s name has been freshly tattooed alongside his famous face.
Sergio Aguero biography: 'Mario Balotelli and Roberto Mancini were like father and son...who would kick lumps out of each other'
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is out for a month with a hamstring injury he sustained in the midweek win at Tottenham Hotspur. Midfielders Samir Nasri and Javi Garcia are also unavailable, with knee and muscle injuries respectively. Chelsea will monitor the fitness of winger Mohamed Salah following his move from Basel. Salah missed Wednesday's derby against West Ham along with Fernando Torres, who is sidelined with a knee injury. It could be explosive. It's bound to be fascinating. Having been frustrated by West Ham's "19th Century football", Jose Mourinho now has to come up with a plan to counter football from another planet. Well, not quite, but football being played by "the best team on the planet", according to Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood. It's a match that pitches the Premier League's most potent attack against its tightest defence, which in itself shows the massive difference a change of coach can have on the ethos of a club. Last season Roberto Mancini's City were the most miserly team arou ...

A Carlos Tevez-inspired City are back at Wembley after ruthlessly casting aside Barnsley in a one-sided FA Cup quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium. The brilliant Tevez scored a hat-trick and set up goals for Aleks Kolarov and David Silva in the 5-0 win as the Blues booked their place in the semi-final in emphatic style. On this evidence, nobody will want to draw the Premier League champions - who are still yet to concede a goal in the competition so far - in tomorrow’s draw. Roberto Mancini took the opportunity to rest a number of key personnel for the visit of the Tykes. With Vincent Kompany, Jack Rodwell and Sergio Aguero still side-lined with injury, Javi Garcia, Gael Clichy, Matija Nastasic, Joe Hart and James Milner were all relegated to the bench.
BPL TOP 5 EXPENSIVE TEAMS: 1. Manchester City - £380m Manchester City spent a club record fee to complete the signing of Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero in the summer of 2011 and, after an instrumental role in delivering the title in his first season with the club, the Argentine remains the most highly-valued player on the books at the Etihad Stadium. According to Transfermarkt, Aguero's present market value of £39.5 million places him at the top of Manchester City's rankings, although he is closely followed by fleet-footed Spaniard David Silva. City spent £25 million to acquire Silva from Valencia, and his value has soared since his arrival in Manchester, with the 27-year-old worth 54 percent more now than he was upon arrival almost three years ago. Manchester City have two other players valued in excess of £30 million in Yaya Toure (£31.5m) and Vincent Kompany (£31m), making Roberto Mancini's squad the most valued in the Premier League. 2. Manchester United - £370m On Friday, Sir Alex Fergu ...
MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Manchester United's Champions League exit has made it harder for Manchester City to retain their Premier League title, the champions' manager Roberto Mancini said on Friday. Alex Ferguson's side, whose elimination by Real Madrid on Tuesday has left them with only domestic matters to focus on, had some unlikely supporters of their European campaign in Manchester City. "It's worse for us because I think now they put all their strength into the championship," Mancini, whose side trail United by 12 points, told a news conference. "I think for us it was better they stayed in the Champions League. They would have played an important game every three days, it is more difficult." Before the Manchester clubs get back to their league duel, they turn their attention to the FA Cup, with United hosting Chelsea in the quarter-finals on Sunday the day after City entertain Championship (second tier) Barnsley. Mancini will be without injured forward Sergio Aguero, who did not play in Monday ...

Man City Team news: Maicon has been ruled out for a month after undergoing minor knee surgery, while Gareth Barry and Vincent Kompany both remain doubtful for the trip to Villa although Roberto Mancini was far more positive on Barry's chances of a return. The City boss must decide whether to maintain the recent 4-5-1 formation rolled out against Chelsea, which saw Yaya Toure tuck in behind Sergio Aguero, or move back to 4-4-2, with Carlos Tevez perhaps the favourite to get the nod to partner his compatriot. Barry's return could see Jack Rodwell dropped to the bench, while Kolo Toure could retain his start in defence should Kompany fail to make it - Joleon Lescott, benched against Chelsea, presents an alternative. admin "Amit"
Manchester - Manchester City galvanised their grip on second place in the English Premier League and trimmed Manchester United's lead back to 12 points with a 2-0 victory at home to nearest rivals Chelsea on Sunday. After Chelsea's Frank Lampard had seen a penalty saved by England colleague Joe Hart, City prevailed through a pair of fine second-half goals from man-of-the-match Yaya Toure and substitute Carlos Tevez. Although City's chances of retaining their league title remain decidedly slender, they now have a seven-point advantage over Chelsea, who could slip to fourth if Tottenham Hotspur overcome West Ham United on Monday. Both City Manager Roberto Mancini and his Chelsea counterpart Rafael Benitez flooded their sides with midfielders at the Etihad Stadium, while Benitez opted to leave John Terry and Fernando Torres on thebench. City deployed Sergio Aguero as a lone striker and although he had to plough a lone furrow, it was the hosts who dominated the firsthalf. Visiting goalkeeper Petr Cech had to ...
Hart save inspires City, Toon beat Saints Joe Hart produced a stunning penalty save to deny Frank Lampard as Manchester City kept neighbours United within 12 points by beating Chelsea on Sunday, while Newcastle eased their relegation fears with victory at home to Southampton.Roberto Mancini has been a heavy critic of Manchester City 'keeper Hart in recent weeks, but he delivered a monumental save at a crucial time to help the champions to a 2-0 triumph over Chelsea. The scores were goalless when Hart got a strong hand to Lampard's 52nd-minute spot-kick, and moments later Yaya Toure opened the scoring before Carlos Tevez wrapped things up. City - knowing they simply had to win to keep their title defence alive - started strongly on home soil, forcing a fine stop from Petr Cech as Matija Nastasic met an in-swinging corner from the right. Sergio Aguero then wasted another glorious opening when he found himself one-on-one with Cech, forcing the ball too wide when trying to round the keeper. Jack Rodwell was n ...

EPL SUPER SUNDAY PREVIEW: Manchester City vs CHELSEA Pressure will be on both teams when second-placed Manchester City host Chelsea who are third in the league table at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Roberto Mancini's City (15-8-3) trail league leaders Manchester United by 12 points with 12 games of the season remaining, and rumours are beginning to circulate about the manager's future at the club. However, star striker Sergio Aguero is hoping that the squad will be able to take inspiration from their 4-0 win over Leeds United in the FA Cup last weekend and mount a late title challenge. "The boost of winning well against Leeds and getting the Southampton defeat out of our system was just what we needed," said Aguero. "The chances of ending this championship in the best possible fashion have only improved, but we know what we are capable of and have done for a long time. This is a team that always goes for the win in every game. "We've got a squad littered with great players fully committed to the ...

Yaya Toure opened the scoring early on after a powerful run, before Sergio Aguero bagged from the spot to double the lead inside 15 minutes. Carlos Tevez’s early second-half goal and Aguero’s cool finish compounded Leeds’ miserable afternoon, and the 2011 winners will go into the last eight as one of the big favourites. Roberto Mancini rang in the changes, with only five of the starting line-up from the 3-1 defeat at Southampton keeping their place.

The irony of one of Liverpool's most battling displays of the season helping arch-rivals United end the weekend nine points clear following Saturday's 1-0 win at Fulham will not be lost of either set of fans but their draw was fully deserved. Second-placed City have dropped points twice in a week following a 0-0 draw at bottom side Queens Park Rangers and only the most avid fan will think the champions can overhaul United now despite last season's stunning fightback. "Liverpool played a good game but we conceded two goals, stupid goals for me," City boss Roberto Mancini told Sky. With 13 matches remain ...
MATCH PREVIEW Incredibly, the sale of Mario Balotelli means the reigning champions have virtually balanced their books in transfer dealings this season. But has Roberto Mancini got it right in depending on the current squad to retain the title? Balotelli's departure will leave a more harmonious dressing room. It'll also leave them short of striking cover at a time when goals have been hard to come by. Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez have just seven between them in the last nine league and cup games. LAWRO'S PREDICTION Image of Mark Lawrenson Mark Lawrenson Football Analyst "This will be a tight game, but there have to be worries over City's defence with Vincent Kompany out injured. If Matija Nastasic is not fit, then Javi Garcia will have to drop into defence again and, if they show any sort of weakness then Luis Suarez will take them apart. "I have to take my hat off to Suarez because he has dropped a little bit deeper since Daniel Sturridge arrived and taken a different role but he has been e ...
Daniel Sturridge is set to reach a personal milestone as he makes a return to former club Manchester City on Sunday. Liverpool's No.15 is set to play the 100th game of his league career so far on his reunion with City. The striker played 32 games for City in all competitions scoring six goals. He played for City against Liverpool in the 2006 FA Youth Cup Final scoring twice at the Etihad but Liverpool won the final on aggregate. His City league debut came six years ago today (Sunday) as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat by Reading. He has never scored against City since he left the club. Here are the rest of the facts and figures ahead of the clash with Roberto Mancini's side from club statto Ged Rea. Earlier this season the sides drew 2-2 at Anfield. Twice Liverpool led through Martin Skrtel and Luis Suarez but City hit back through Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez. On this ground last season City won 3-0 with goals from Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and James Milner (penalty). In between those two fixtures was the Re ...
Pablo Zabaleta scored a late winner to seal Manchester City's route to the FA Cup fifth round with victory at Stoke. The visitors could not capitalise on long spellsof pressure as David Silva hit the post with Carlos Tevez also drawing saves from ThomasSorenson. Stoke's chances were limited and Robert Huth went closest with a header. But just as the game looked like ending goalless, Zabaleta arrived at the back post to steer in Sergio Aguero's cross with five minutes remaining. Substitute Cameron Jerome could have forceda replay but fired over from 12 yards in stoppage time, while Peter Crouch also headed over late on. It was a largely forgettable game, with Stoke failing to fire, but the win was Manchester City's first at the Potters since 1999 when both teams were in Football League Division Two. And it continues a surge in form from Roberto Mancini's side, with this result their sixth consecutive win since losing to Sunderland on Boxing Da
La Liga giants lead race for Manchester City star La Liga duo Malaga and Sevilla are interested Manchester City striker John Guidetti, according to reports from Sky Sports. The Swedish international has been linked with a loan move to a number of Premier League clubs recently, with first-team opportunities at the Etihad Stadium limited. ... But, a switch to Spain now appears to be most likely, with Malaga and Sevilla both interested in the 20-year-old. City are believed to be willing to allow Guidetti to leave on a temporary basis in a bid to gain match experience. With the likes of Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli, Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko all competing for a starting spot, the youngster has been pushed aside by manager Roberto Mancini. The player himself is keen on a stint in Spain, although it is thought that a number of Italian sides as well as Newcastle and Sunderland are monitoring the situation. His representatives are believed to be in talks with City to discuss the best option for his developmen ...
Premier League ROUND UP SATURDAY MATCHES Golden Silva keeps pressure on leaders Manchester City cut the gap to rivals United at the top of the Premier League to four points on Saturday, while Liverpool hit five as they moved level with Arsenal in the hunt for European football. Newcastle's survival hopes were derailed by Reading, who moved out of the bottom three at the expense of Wigan. Roberto Mancini will hope for a favour from Tottenham after Manchester City did their job ahead of United's trip to White Hart Lane on Sunday, beating Fulham 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium. A brace from David Silva ensured pressure was applied by the champions as they attempt to hunt down their neighbours. Mancini does not expect any big-name signings in January, but he was boosted by the return of two important squad members as Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri took to the bench against Fulham. And the duo were treated to a goal after two minutes, as Silva pounced on Mark Schwarzer's parry after Edin Dzeko had fired at goal. Stev ...

Yet, an interesting sideshow has developed at Manchester City, with Mario Balotelli having a well-publicised bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini in training. As rumours persist that City are considering cutting their losses on the eccentric Italian, GiveMeFootball gives five reasons why keeping the 22-year-old striker at the Etihad Stadium would benefit Manchester City. 1. Undeniable talent If there's one thing we can be certain of, it's that Balotelli is a top quality footballer. He's got 20 league goals in 53 appearances for Manchester City, and bearing in mind that he's fourth-choice striker at a club which boasts the talents of Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, that is a very respectable statistic. Add to that five goals for his national team, 20 goals in the Serie A, and the controversial youngster has started to forge an impressive CV given his age. If that's not enough, then how about the masterclass he provided in the semi-final of Euro 2012, where he single-handedly destroyed tournamen ...
Manchester City 3-0 Stoke: Aguero wraps up comfortable win for champions Roberto Mancini's men ensured they kept pace at the top of the Premier League with an easy victory over a Potters side who struggled to create any chances of note Manchester City started the New Year in perfect fashion as they strolled past a resolute Stoke side with a comfortable 3-0 victory on Tuesday. Pablo Zabaleta opened the scoring after Asmir Begovic cleared a low cross into his path with 43 minutes on the clock before Edin Dzeko doubled the home side’s lead at the start of the second half. The win was secured in the 74th minute as Sergio Aguero fired home a controversial penalty after David Silva had been tripped by Steven N’Zonzi. Roberto Mancini gave Joleon Lescott his first start for a month alongside Vincent Kompany at the heart of the City defence and the Italian’s only other change saw James Milner replace the suspended Samir Nasri. Stoke made four changes to the side that drew with Southampton as Ryan Shawcross, ...
English Premier League Manchester City 3 (Zabaleta 43, Dzeko 56, Aguero pen 74) Stoke City 0 -By Tom Adams {EUROSPORT} 01-01-2013 Manchester City remain seven points behind leaders Manchester United after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium. Close-range finishes from Pablo Zabaleta and Edin Dzeko put City in firm control before Sergio Aguero completed the scoring with a penalty that was awarded despite Steven Nzonzi fouling David Silva outside the box after 73 minutes. However, Roberto Mancini's side lost the game's outstanding attacker, Aguero, to what appeared to be a hamstring injury, taking the shine off a fourth win in five games that keeps them in touch with their local rivals. Ryan Shawcross returned from suspension to strengthen the Premier League's meanest defence. For Manchester City, meanwhile, Samir Nasri started a three-game ban and was replaced by James Milner, with Joleon Lescott also in for Matija Nastasic. Dzeko retained his place after scoring twice against No ...

EPL SATURDAY ROUND UP ARSENAL beat Newcastle 7v 3,Walcott make a case Plus Manchester clubs battle to victory Hard-fought wins for Manchester United and Manchester City maintained the status quo at the top of the Premier League table on Saturday, as Tottenham rose to third thanks to a come-from-behind win against Sunderland. Elsewhere, Aston Villa dropped to within one place of the relegation zone after a third successive heavy defeat, this time at the hands of fellow strugglers Wigan, while 10-man Stoke City grabbed a late draw with Southampton, Fulham succumbed to Swansea and Reading picked up a hard-fought win against West Ham. A classy finish from Sergio Aguero settled Manchester City's nerves against Norwich City, as Edin Dzeko scored twice and was instrumental in a third to help City secure a 4-3 win despite seeing Samir Nasri sent off towards the end of the first half at Carrow Road. Dzeko - handed a rare start by Roberto Mancini - rewarded his manager for the selection with two goals in the openin ...
Norwich City 3-4 Manchester City: Dzeko double enough for champions in end-of-year *** Roberto Mancini's side pick up the three points despite making the match a lot tougher than it needed to be, with Samir Nasri receiving a straight red card Manchester City have ended 2012 with three points after narrowly beating Norwich City 4-3 at Carrow Road in a fantastically entertaining encounter. City raced into a two-goal lead thanks to two Edin Dzeko goals, but Anthony Pilkington pulled one back before Sergio Aguero got the Blues’ third before half-time. Samir Nasri received a straight red card and Russell Martin got Norwich’s second, and later got a second of his own after Mark Bunn put the ball into his own goal and City got the three points. Despite losing to Chelsea last time out, Norwich fielded a very similar team as their only change saw the much-maligned Steve Morison started in place of Grant Holt, who picked up a late injury. Roberto Mancini, however, was understandably annoyed with his side’ ...
DAVID PLATT tips goal-shy Manchester City to reignite their title defence with a scoring romp. City trail neighbours United by seven points after netting just 34 times — whereas they led the table at the midway point last term when bagging 53 goals. And boss Roberto Mancini labelled his strikeforce as "maybe too soft" after dire finishing led to a 1-0 Boxing Day loss at Sunderland. But assistant Platt feels Mancini was criticising City's lack of a clinical touch — rather than a weakness in his players. Platt said: “I don't think he means soft — sometimes it can be lost in translation. "In the last few games we have produced enough efforts on goal but we should be scoring more. “These things have a habit of balancing out over the season." Platt admits front four Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli will be "disappointed" with their goal return so far. He added: "Goalscorers go through barren spells — we’re just unfortunate they’re all having one at the same time. "But ...
Roberto Mancini will gamble on the fragile temper of Mario Balotelli for the Manchester derby.

Divine intervention! Roberto Mancini believes Virgin Mary may have answered Manchester City title prayers Manchester Evening News, November 15, 2012 Stuart Brennan Roberto Mancini claims that when Sergio Aguero miraculously won the Premier League title, he got an assist from the Virgin Mary! The City boss has revealed how he feels a pilgrimage he took to a holy shrine in Bosnia-Herzegovina at the height of the title run-in may have turned the tide back in the Blues’ favour. And his belief is backed up by a strange set of circumstances which followed from his trip to the town of Medjugorje in March, just as United had seized the initiative at the top of the table. City had started to wobble in the race and lost top spot just as Mancini, along with wife Federica and daughter Camilla, took a two-day break and flew to the Balkans. At the time of his visit, devout Catholic Mancini denied that he was seeking divine help for the Blues, saying: “I think The Lord and Our Lady have more important things to worr ...
MATCH REPORT: CHELSEA 0 Manchester City 0 26-11-2012 It was a point apiece at the Bridgeas both Chelsea and Manchester City failed to find a breakthrough... Summary Rafael Benitez's reign as Chelsea interim manager saw the Blues and Manchester City play out a goalless draw, only the second occasion this season on which we've failed to score in the league. On reflection, it was probably a fair result, and while Roberto Mancini's side will feel they should have won it, Benitez will be pleased to have seen his men keep a clean sheet for the first time since the 4-0 win against Nordsjaelland at the beginning of last month. Pablo Zabaleta, David Silva and Sergio Aguero all wasted good chances for the away side in the first half, and after the break Ashley Cole cleared one off the line. Our best opportunity fell to Fernando Torres midway throughthe second half, but the striker fired over after a deflection had fallen kindly for him, while Joe Hart saved well to deny Cole. Attention now turns towards a crucial L ...

Roberto Mancini admitted the foundations of Manchester City's early exit from the Champions League were built long before their 1-1 draw with Real Madrid. City took their points haul to only three from five games thanks to Sergio Aguero's penalty, but despite having a man advantage in the closing stages they were unable to stay alive with a winning goal. That leaves them needing to beat Borussia Dortmund in Germany next month to have any chance of a place in the Europa League, with their Champions League hopes over in the group stage for a second year running. "I think that the first half we played so-so, Real Madrid played better than us. Second half we played better, we had one or two chances to score. After we scored the penalty, well the result is correct," Mancini said. "The first chance they had, they scored. It was a mistake, we were five against two in the box and we concede a goal. When you start like this it is always difficult. "We were 1-0 down and we didn't have anything to lose in the second ...
Manchester City are out of the Champions League at the group stage for the second successive season after they were held to a draw by Real Madrid at the Etihad. Roberto Mancini's side needed victory to maintain any hope of progress but fell behind to Karim Benzema's early goal. Real threatened to run riot in the early stages as former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo - given a predictably hostile reception - saw an effort scrambled off the line and Sami Khedira wasted three opportunities. Mancini's three-man defensive system was being easily exploited by Real but City finally came into the game when the necessary alterations were made after the break. Sergio Aguero equalised from the spot after 74 minutes following a foul by Alvaro Arbeloa, who was sent off after receiving a second yellow card, but even a late rally could not bring the goal they needed. City are rooted to the bottom of Group D without a win and only three points from five games so the Premier League champions can have no complaint ...
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini felt his side showed glimpses of their best form as they thumped Aston Villa 5-0 to move top of the Premier League. City also beat Tottenham last week and Mancini thinks they are improving on their early-season performances. Mancini said: "We can do better but I hope we are starting to find the form of last season. "In the last two games I think we changed something. In our mind we found a good spirit, like last year." The victory took Mancini's side - the only remaining unbeaten team in the top flight - above neighbours United, who went on to lose at Norwich in the later kick-off. Champions City have conceded only 10 goals in 12 league matches and have the best defensive record in the division, as well as the best goal difference. Scoring goals has been more problematic of late and Mancini was pleased to see Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez grab two apiece against Villa, after Aguero and Edin Dzeko both netted against Spurs. "For us it is very important we start to p ...
Mario Balotelli Remains Fully Committed To Manchester City, According To His Agent 13 November, 2012 Sports Speculation regarding the Italy international's future has intensified on the back of his omission from City's matchday squad for Sunday's 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. photo Balotelli was forced to watch on from the stands as fellow forwards Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko found the target for the reigning Premier League champions. It is now being suggested that the 22-year-old is ready to cut short his time in England and head home, with former employers Inter Milan said to be keen on reacquiring his services. Balotelli is, however, contracted to City until June 2015 and his representative claims his client will see out that deal and force his way back into Roberto Mancini's plans. "There's no Italy and no plans to go there," said Mino Raiola. "He'll work until the end of his contract. He doesn't want to leave. "There's no player happy with not playing in a game, but he accepts it. "It's all pa ...

Roberto Mancini will not face disciplinary action after confronting the referee following his side's controversial 2-2 Champions League draw with Ajax. UEFA have confirmed that the incident was not reported by either Danish referee Peter Rasmussen or their match delegate at the Etihad Stadium. Mancini came onto the field after a stormy final few minutes in which Sergio Aguero had a goal disallowed and Mario Balotelli had a penalty appeal turned down. A UEFA spokesperson said: "Nothing was reported neither by the delegate nor by the referee. No disciplinary proceedings are opened."
Mancini rages at referee ESPN staff November 6, 2012 Roberto Mancini raged at referee Peter Rasmussen after Manchester City had a goal ruled out for offside and were denied a late penalty as their Champions League dream all but died with a 2-2 home draw against Ajax. - Jolly: City cornered - Tyler: Group of Death tightens hold - Curtis: 'Flinterdun' as City lights go out Sergio Aguero had a goal chalked off when the creator Aleksandr Kolarov was ruled offside when he seemed to be level from Edin Dzeko's pass, and Mario Balotelli appeared to have his shirt tugged by Ricardo Van Rhijn late on. City started the game terribly. Siem De Jong was left unchecked at two first- half corners, the Ajax captain able to head home a brace, forcing Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero to dig deep and score the goals needed to keep City within five points of the qualification spots in Group D. Ominously, City now need to beat both Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, who also drew 2-2 on Tuesday. Mancini, though, pulled no punches ...
Wayne Rooney is the only England star nominated for the Ballon D’Or. But FIFA’s 23-man list was a slap in the face for Chelsea, who do not have one nominee despite their first-ever European Cup triumph. Only Didier Drogba made the list — and he left Last Summer. Three-time winner Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also made the cut. Manchester City had Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Mario Balotelli nominated following their title triumph. Rooney’s United team-mate Robin Van Persie was listed for his goalscoring exploits with Arsenal before his transfer. Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is a contender for manager of the year alongside City’s Roberto Mancini and United’s Alex Ferguson.

Roberto Mancini and Mario Balotelli were involved in a tunnel confrontation after Laurent Koscielny had secured a point with a late equaliser for Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium yesterday. Balotelli, forced to watch last week's Champions League defeat against Real Madrid from the stands at Santiago Bernabeu after being omitted from Mancini's match-day squad, was involved for just five minutes against Arsenal, introduced as an 85th-minute replacement for Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine has been sidelined with a knee injury since the Premier League champions’ opening-day victory over Southampton, and was not risked for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Stoke. Despite concerns still remaining over Aguero’s fitness, Mancini is set to gamble on the 24-year-old making a full recovery in time for Tuesday’s tie, and even hinte

Manchester City lead Chelsea in £47m race for Falcao A summer move failed to materialise as the club were unable to offload Edin Dzeko despite interest from AC Milan and Bayern Munich, while Carlos Tevez's return to form saw him return to favour under Roberto Mancini. Chelsea are also huge admirers of Falcao, who has scored 42 goals in 53 appearances for Atletico Madrid including a stunning hat-trick against the Blues in his side's Uefa Supercup victory in Monaco last Friday. But City are confident of landing their man after a 12-month long pursuit with Atletico's recent financial struggles ensuring they must listen to big-money offers for their star player. Falcao has a €60m (£47m) release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract and City believe their strong relationship with the Spanish club will help to facilitate a deal. City eased Atletico's financial difficulties last year by paying £38m to sign Sergio Aguero, from under the noses of their great rivals Real Madrid, with most of the transfer fee ...

There was some bad news for Roberto Mancini's men, however, as Sergio Aguero was stretchered off with a knee problem. The hosts wasted a glut of chances at the beginning of the second half, and were punished when substitute Rickie Lambert equalised with a composed first-time strike. Southampton went into dreamland shortly afterwards when, following a mistake from City debutant Jack Rodwell, Steven Davis found the net at the end of a counter- attack. But City, who left it so late before beating QPR 3-2 to take the Premier League title ...
Football shared the following link: City Manager Roberto Mancini faces a nervous wait to discover how long he will be without Sergio Aguero after the Argentina striker suffered a knee injury in Sunday's 3-2 win over Southampton.
After being absolutely spoilt for sport over the summer, the Premier League is back this weekend and fans will return to cheering on a new multi-million-pound signing rather than those who could go faster, higher, stronger in Stratford. Thanks to Euro 2012, the cricket Test series between England and South Africa, and, of course, the Olympics, the swing of Sergio Aguero's boot which so dramatically won the title for Manchester City just more than three months ago still seems like only yesterday. However, almost under the radar, much has changed in the world of the Premier League and many questions are surrounding the 2012/13 kick-off. Can City defend their title? Will Robin Van Persie make the difference for Manchester United? Has Chelsea's spending turned them into contenders? Is Brendan Rodgers the right man for Liverpool? Who will be relegated? In short, welcome back. Roberto Mancini's Manchester City begin the defence of their title by hosting Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. The reigning ...
Reigning champions Chelsea and Premier League runners-up Manchester United have the best chance of the four English teams, according to the poll, while the league champions, Manchester City, haven’t got a hope, with just 1% of supporters backing Roberto Mancini to guide City to their first Champions League trophy. The Premier League champions certainly have the squad to win the continental competition, with Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez among Europe’s best strikers. But their lack of discipline and European experience counted against them last season, and may do again during the next campaign. Mancini’s side crashed out in the group stages last season, with one particularly miserable night in Munich responsible for Carlos Tevez’s five month exclusion from the City squad. Mancini will be hopeful of more successful – and less stressful – campaign this time around, although the fans are doubtful. While City were hit by misfortune and misery, Roberto Di Matteo’s side shocked Eu ...
Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has warned manager Roberto Mancini that he may leave the club if he is not handed more first team opportunities. The 26-year-old former Wolfsburg striker joined the Premier League champion for 27 million pounds in January of last year. However the Bosnian started just 16 Premier League games last season, despite scoring an impressive 14 goals, including the injury time equalizer against Queens Park Rangers on the final day of last season which set up City's fairytale title triumph. He told The Sun: “In the second half of last season, I suddenly got to start far fewer games — and I’ve got no idea why. “I lost my rhythm. I joined City in order to play in matches. “I never imagined that things would turn out the way they have. “I am too good for the bench. If I continue to sit matches out, then anything is possible.” Dzeko began the season as one of Mancini's preferred strikers but soon fell behind Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and later Carlos Tevez in the p ...

Sergio Aguero and captain Vincent Kompany were on target as Roberto Mancini's men cruised to a comfortable 2-0 victory against Besiktas
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini says his striker Sergio Aguero, 23, can be like Lionel Messi and score in every game.
Sergio Aguero's winner against QPR in the fourth minute of added-on time - just over a minute after Edin Dzeko scored an equaliser - secured City's first league crown in 44 years on the final day of the season. Sir Alex, frustrated by the way his team conceded an eight-point lead in the final weeks of the season, could now face a probe from the authorities after he suggested Rangers “quit” once they knew they had avoided relegation. "Queens Park Rangers did very well until they found out they were safe, and I think, as Mark Hughes has said, they quit,” said Ferguson in the club's Inside United magazine. “That was disappointing. It's hard to digest because we played so well at Sunderland. "Obviously we knew that QPR were in front, we all thought we had done it, then the Sunderland fans all started cheering and we knew they'd scored again. I said to Mike Phelan a couple of times that if QPR were leading and City equalised, they'd get a big impetus from that, and that's what happened. "Everyone expec ...
Real Madrid are ready to test Manchester City's resolve for Sergio Aguero. The Sunday Mirror says Real boss Jose Mourinho now wants to bring him to the Bernabeu. City signed Aguero for £35 million a year ago from Real’s rivals Atletico Madrid. The Argentinian had been coveted by Real for some time – but Atletico were reluctant to deal directly with their bitter rivals from across the city. City Manager Roberto Mancini wants to bolster rather than weaken his squad but if Aguero wanted to return to Spain it might prove to be difficult to hang on to the front man.
On May 13, Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United had their 13th Premier League title in their grasp for 13 seconds. During that time, Sergio Aguero was careering towards ending that sliver of hope with the type of finish a £38 million signing should deliver. It was a climax as thrilling as any in the Premier League era, and only added to the opinion that this had been the greatest of all seasons. Well, since football began in 1992 anyway. Perhaps that cool finish was the moment that consigned the phrase "typical City" to the dustbin, chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak suggested. The old Manchester City did not have £930 million to spend on a "project" to bear the fruit of victory in first the FA Cup and then the Premier League. And they did not have a manager like Roberto Mancini. Though he understandably lost his cool when all seemed lost on Sunday, Mancini's self-assurance has been City's guiding light. Al-Mubarak suggested that "what Roberto did magnificently was to take the pressure off the entire team" ...

First England, now the world: Champions Manchester City set for a decade of global dominance after 44 years in the shadows Roberto Mancini's squad are perfectly placed to build a dynasty after Sergio Aguero's goal sealed their first Premier League title in the most dramatic fashion imaginable May 14, 2012 8:08:00 AM COMMENT By Greg Stobart at Etihad Stadium Sat in front of his television in the Abu Dhabi Royal Palace was Sheikh Mansour, the man who spent the best part of £1 billion to make it all possible. So busy is his diary that he was unable to fly over to witness Manchester City being crowned Premier League champions on Sunday in the most thrilling of circumstances. It was a day that ended the 44-year wait for the title, more than four decades of hurt; a day that confirmed the club’s transformation from mid-table mediocrity to a genuine force. For Sheikh Mansour, it is the first return on his eye-watering investment, a step towards domination of European football in ‘the project’ to make City ...
Manchester City FC clinched their first EPL title today May 13, 2012 after 44 years of wait. The title was decided at exactly 93rd minutes when Sergio Aguero drilled in a crucial goal against Queens Park Rangers (QPR). Manchester United scored first at 20 minutes into the game through Wayne Rooney assisted by Phil Jones while Pablo Zabaleta drilled in a goal at 39 minutes for Manchester City in a separate game. QPR then equalised some minutes into second half after captain Joey Barton’s red card and later doubled the lead to keep Manchester United a favourite for the title. After 93 minutes of play, Manchester United assumed the winner of the league with two minutes left for Manchester City. But as Manchester United prepared to celebrate their fourth consecutive EPL win, snatching a 20th league title following their 1-0 win at Sunderland, Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero struck twice in two minutes to seal the most enthralling title duel in years for Roberto Mancini side. Manchester City coach, Mancini said ...
Manchester City snatches EPL crown Sergio Aguero ended Manchester City's 44-year search for a title in extraordinary fashion as two goals in stoppage-time gave Roberto Mancini's men a scarcely-believable 3-2 win over 10-man Queens Park Rangers. The title looked certain to be heading for the red side of the city for the 20th time as Wayne Rooney gave Manchester United a 1-0 win at Sunderland and City trailed 2-1 heading into the last minute. But substitute Edin Dzeko headed an equaliser with 91 minutes on the clock then Aguero fired home three minutes later to send a disbelieving Etihad Stadium into rapture. Knowing a win would almost certainly be enough to end the long wait, City went ahead through Pablo Zabaleta's 39th-minute strike before the home side were stunned by a 48th-minute equaliser from Djibril Cisse. Despite the ridiculous sending-off of former City man Joey Barton on 55 minutes for an elbow behind the play on Carlos Tevez, QPR went ahead through Jamie Mackie in the 66th minute - and looked s ...
Roberto Mancini's side seemed to be destined for second place for much of the afternoon as Queens Park Rangers produced a display of resilience to thwart their opponents. The situation was desperate as the match at the Etihad Stadium moved into injury time. QPR, down to 10 men for the final 35 minutes of the match after Joey Barton's red card, were winning 2-1 and set to become the first side this season to beat City on their own patch. More significantly, Manchester United were winning 1-0 at Sunderland thanks to Wayne Rooney's header - which meant City had to secure victory to win their first title in 44 years. With 75 seconds of the five minutes of injury time elapsed Edin Dzeko fired in to level the match and set the tone for an astonishing finale. And with less than two minutes remaining, Sergio Aguero fired past Paddy Kenny from close range to spark massive celebrations in the stadium. Dramatic twist For much of the afternoon, United looked set fair for their 13th Premier League crown. Rooney's goal ...

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini revelled in his side's Premier League title triumph after they beat QPR to pip rivals Manchester United. The Blues appeared to have blown their chances of a first championship since 1968 as Djibril Cisse and Jamie Mackie overturned Pablo Zabaleta's first-half strike. But Edin Dzeko rose to give City fresh hope before Sergio Aguero drove home the goal that won City the title
I love Manchester City as they got many best players this seasons.. David Silva, Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri, Yaya Toure and the unforgettable one Carlos Tevez who is always make controversy..

What a fitting finale to the 2011-12 season of Barclays Premier League... kudos to Manchester City! That is the spirit of being Champions of the world's best league .. Coming back from 1-2 to clinch a goal with the last kick to win the championship deserves credit. It is very different from the manipulative mind games that we have been seeing win trophies for the last 2 decades. Step aside Manchester United! The 'noisy neighbors' have dismantled the abominable gum chewing old hag... Hats off to Roberto Mancini, Vincent Kompany and team (special mention of Ya Ya Toure, Sergio Aguero, Joe Hart and David Silva) ... Welcome to a new Era in football, and more importantly, goodbye to a bygone era of winning through manipulation and bad influence..!
In the derby, which gave City a sliver of an advantage with two games to go, Yaya Toure was probably the man of the match. He started as the deepest midfielder, alongside Gareth Barry, who is to registas what white males are to dancing. But with a one-goal lead in the second half, Roberto Mancini pushed Toure forward into a plunging role with Nigel De Jong entering as a substitute. The Ivorian used his 6-foot-3, 200 pound frame and intimidating physicality to disrupt the passing of midfield tandem of Scholes and Michael Carrick. Within 10 minutes, Sir Alex Ferguson withdrew Scholes for the more direct Antonio Valencia. United didn't put a shot on target. Last season, before Sergio Aguero commanded much of the space between the lines, Toure featured frequently as a plunger, with Barry and De Jong behind. The stodgy, suffocating midfield stabilized the perennially underachieving side. City conceded a league-low 33 goals (tied with Chelsea) and won the FA Cup, with Toure scoring one of his 13 goals in the se ...
Manchester City have taken a huge step towards winning the Premier League title with a 2-0 victory at Newcastle United. - Palmer: Spurs fail to seize chance - Arsenal 3-3 Norwich City Yaya Toure's brace saw City defeat Champions League-chasing Newcastle - a result that, in the opinion of both Roberto Mancini and Sir Alex Ferguson ahead of the match, would be decisive in the title race. After a goalless first-half, Mancini brought on Nigel De Jong on for Samir Nasri, allowing Toure to move into a more advanced role. It proved to be a masterstroke, as the Ivorian played a one-two with Sergio Aguero before curling a first-time strike past a diving Krul. Sergio Aguero missed a gilt-edged opportunity to put the result beyond Newcastle after being released by David Silva, and Toure then missed two chances to double his goal tally - his glancing header flashing wide before slipping when one-on-one with Tim Krul. However, he sealed the win two minutes from time with a cool finish. The result saw City move three p ...
Manchester City have identified Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie as the man to lead their attack next season and are reportedly prepared to pay him £250,000-a-week. The Dutch international has only a year left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium, leading to speculationover where his future may lie. Robin Van Persie is set to be a wanted man this summer (PA) City are already blessed with talented options in their forward line, with boss Roberto Mancini able to call upon the services of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli. But the Italian may feel his table toppers would be strengthened with 37-goal forward Van Persie to call upon next season. According to the Daily Star, they are prepared to pay him a quarter of a million pounds each week - which equates to £12 million a year - in order to make the switch to the Etihad Stadium. Arsenal are sure not to let him go without a fight, despite having signed Germany international Lukas Podolski toadd to their own group of strikers. Ta ...
How will Roberto Mancini's men approach this game? Well, they will give ultimate respect to Newcastle and will see what they have got in the first half an hour before they start to turn the screw. If they get good service to Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez, then I think that will be good enough to see City through. Prediction: Nwcastle 1- Man City 2 - Mark Lawrenson BBC
Manchester City 1-0 Manchester United: Kompany header settles derby as Mancini's men leapfrog the champions.The defender converted David Silva's corner in first half added time in order to secure three points as the home side edge closer to their first ever Premier League title Vincent Kompany's header in first half added time earned Roberto Mancini's team the points and catapulted them above United and into top spot on goal difference. City now need only to match the results of their Manchester rivals in the final two games of the league campaign in order to pip Sir Alex Ferguson's men to the trophy. City had scored 12 goals in three matches prior to this fixture and as a result Roberto Mancini opted to stick with the side that had relegated Wolves eight days earlier. That meant that Carlos Tevez faced his former club alongside Sergio Aguero in attack, with David Silva and Samir Nasri in support. Antonio Valencia was surprisingly omitted from the United starting XI, with Park Ji-Sung and Ryan Giggs joini ...

Manchester City closed the gap on leaders Manchester United to three points and doomed Wolves to relegation with a 2-0 victory in the Barclays Premier League clash at Molineux. Roberto Mancini's side capitalised on the title life-line handed to them via United's shock 4-4 home draw with Everton earlier in the afternoon, while Terry Connor's side became the first side to drop out of the top flight this season. Goals from Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri sealed victory for the visitors who now have their fate back in their own hands ahead of next Monday's derby with United. City have a superior goal difference to United and, if they win their last three games, they will claim the title. There was little doubt about the outcome at Molineux once Aguero had broken the deadlock just before the half-hour mark. Wolves showed plenty of spirit but defeat has brought an end to their three-year tenure in the top flight after a dreadful campaign. They briefly led the division after collecting seven points from the openin ...
