Manchester City 2-0 Fulham There are no guarantees Brahim Diaz will still be at Manchester City beyond next summer but the Spain Under-21 winger offered a glimpse of what the club will be losing if he does depart for Real Madrid. His first and second goals in City colours were enough to consign Fulham to a fifth successive defeat and secure a place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the competition’s holders. While Fulham named almost a full-strength side, they were no match for a youthful City. Yet Pep Guardiola’s delight at Diaz’s performance, a similarly enterprising display from another brilliant teenage talent, Phil Foden, and a debut for youngster Claudio Gomes will have been tempered by the sight of Kevin De Bruyne limping off five minutes from the end. De Bruyne appeared to flex his left knee after Fulham defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, on loan from Manchester United, landed heavily on the legs of the Belgian, who was sat in an upright … [Read more...] about Manchester City stroll past Fulham with Brahim Diaz double but Kevin De Bruyne limps off

A Manchester City fan has gone viral after he filmed himself reacting to Riyad Mahrez's penalty miss against Liverpool at the wekeend. Twitter user Lawrence Bury was at Anfield on Sunday afternoon and filmed his reactions throughout the match as he watched on from the packed away end, as you can see in the video above. One clip in particular shows the supporter filming his reaction as Mahrez stepped up for the decisive spot-kick late on at Anfield. The penalty was agonising to watch and the anguish etched across the face of the City fan summed it all up as he saw his dreams of an away win crushed in front of him. "Riyad, please hit the target mate," the video clip begins. "13 years of hurt waiting at Anfield for a league win. 13 years." We suppose we can forgive the dramatic finale to the match as an excuse for him wrongly forgetting it is actually 15 years since City last recorded an away with at Liverpool. As Mahrez placed the ball down on the penalty spot, the social media user … [Read more...] about Watch Man City fan’s incredible reaction to Riyad Mahrez penalty vs Liverpool
A deal for Manchester City to sign Jorginho could be agreed at any moment, according to the player's agent. Pep Guardiola was hopeful of securing the midfielder's signature prior to the start of the World Cup but that didn't materialise and negotiations have now rumbled on for weeks. However, an end to the saga could be near if Joao Santos' most recent comments are anything to go by. "Manchester City are working to close the deal with Napoli - any moment could be the right one," Santos told Radio Kiss Kiss. "The player is in Brazil. "I'm in my house in England, waiting for a call from [sporting director Cristiano] Giuntoli or [owner Aurelio] De Laurentiis. When it arrives, I will go to meet the leadership of Manchester City." City are currently only targeting two summer additions - Jorginho and the Leicester forward Riyad Mahrez - though they have taken the stance that they won't pay over the odds for either player. City and Napoli are currently haggling over performance-related … [Read more...] about Jorginho agent gives Man City transfer update

If Leicester City fail to overtake Burnley and snatch seventh place, and a possible Europa League place, it will be disappointing for everyone associated with the club. But can the season really be seen as a failure? After dropping into the bottom three following a particularly difficult opening eight games, Claude Puel has lifted City up to eighth in the Premier League and City have reached the quarter finals in both the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, going out after penalties to Manchester City and after extra time to Chelsea respectively. However, after Saturday's defeat to Newcastle United City's chances of catching Burnley and finishing seventh look slim. This weekend's trip to Turf Moor has now taken on even greater importance because defeat could see City's season fizzle out. If that happens there will not be a shortage of City fans who will take to social media to vent their frustration. There have even been those who now think Puel is not the man to take the club forward. It is a … [Read more...] about Are Leicester City providing value for money this season?
