Manchester City will be looking to draw on their domestic cup form when they host League One outfit Burton Albion in the first-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday night. The Blues, who face Burton as holders of the Carabao Cup, put seven unanswered goals past Rotherham in the FA Cup third-round at the weekend to earn a fourth-round date with Burnley. Pep Guardiola named a strong side against the Millers and looks set to do the same against the Brewers at the Etihad. "We want to become a top, top club. You cannot drop any competition," the City boss, who oversaw the Blues' win against Arsenal in last season's League Cup final, said. "I don't know how far we are going to go because maybe not playing the Carabao Cup would be easier for our recovery but we are going to play the next game like a final."

Manchester City will be looking to navigate themselves back on course in the Premier League title race against Southampton on Sunday afternoon after slipping to back-to-back defeats against Crystal Palace and Leicester. The Blues have looked a shadow of the side that strolled to the league title with 100 points last season over the Christmas period, with injuries to David Silva and Fernandinho playing a considerable part in City's struggles. Pep Guardiola's side have now lost three of their last four league games - as many as they lost in their previous 70 in the competition - though the City boss has only lost three consecutive league games once in his career, backing in May 2015 with Bayern Munich. Despite the dip in form, Guardiola remains convinced that his side will return to winning ways. "There is always a belief to win," he said ahead of the Blues' fixture against the Premier League's 16th-placed side. "I will continue that way. The games speak for themselves and we are not … [Read more...] about What TV channel is Southampton vs Man City on?
Manchester United will be looking to make it three wins in a row under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when Bournemouth are the visitors to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. The Reds' caretaker boss oversaw wins against Cardiff and Huddersfield in his first two games in charge, with his side scoring eight goals in the process. Paul Pogba has started to show form befitting of a World Cup winner with two goals in as many appearances under Solskjaer, and the Norwegian believes Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku should follow the Frenchman's lead as they return to contention. "I cannot do anything for their performances on the pitch," he said in the build up to the fixture against Bournemouth, who sit 12th in the Premier League table with just two wins since October. "Paul has done it himself, the players have done the performances. "My chats with Anthony [Martial], Romelu, Alexis, whoever has not felt they have produced their best football, I'm here to guide them, help them on the path and it's up … [Read more...] about What TV channel is Manchester United vs Bournemouth on?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will lead Manchester United out at Old Trafford for the first time on Boxing Day when the Reds host Huddersfield. The Norwegian's temporary reign as United manager got off to the perfect start on Saturday, with his side scoring five goals for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's final game in charge back in 2013. Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard were all on target as United's front three ran riot in the Welsh capital. "I'm pleased with all of them, every single one of them," Solskjaer beamed afterwards. "But of course it's a threat [to have such players]. When you've got Martial and Jesse Lingard down either side, Rashford up top with Paul [Pogba] supporting them, it's exhilarating to watch and as long as we keep that standard up we'll keep up picking points. "When you're a Man United player, you want the ball and that’s only of the things you say to them: 'Go and get on the ball’."
