Manchester City fail to break Chelsea record & fall short of Bayern Munich streak with Crystal Palace draw

Manchester City ‘s remarkable winning run came to an end against Crystal Palace as Roy Hodgson‘s side held the Premier League leaders to a 0-0 draw.Pep Guardiola had guided his outfit to 18 victories in a row in the league since a 1-1 draw with Everton back in August but could not find a way through against a well-drilled Palace side.It was the first time in what’s been a tremendous season for the club that they’ve failed to find the back of the net in a domestic match and, in truth, clear chances were few and far between.As they failed to pick up three points, Guardiola fell short of matching a European record of 19 consecutive wins, that he’d set with Bayern Munich in the 2013/14 season, while also failing to break Chelsea’s Premier league record of 12 away wins on the spin.They did, however, cling on to hopes of matching Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ by going a whole season unbeaten but have Ederson to thank as he saved an injury time penalty against Luka Milivojevic.It was a frustrating…

Jabulani better than League Cup balls – Toure

English football chiefs on Wednesday defended the ball used in the League Cup after Manchester City’s Yaya Toure said it was worse than the much-maligned Jabulani used in the 2010 World Cup.
City and Championship club Wolves played with the Mitre Delta ball in Tuesday’s League Cup tie at the Etihad Stadium, with the hosts needing a penalty shootout to advance to the quarter-finals after the match finished goalless after 120 minutes.
“I don’t like it, to be honest,” said City and Ivory Coast midfielder Toure. “They can do better than that. It’s too light. Even in my country they can’t use those kind of balls.
“I think they have to be better than that because the ball was too soft. It’s rubbish but that’s fine. The World Cup one (Jabulani) was better than that one.”
Guardiola, whose team play with Nike balls in the Premier League and Adidas balls in the Champions League, lambasted the Mitre Delta, suggesting it was “not a serious ball for a professional game”.
“We play with a different…

Sergio Aguero scores hat trick as Man City ease past Gladbach in UCL

Sergio Aguero scored his second hat trick of the season as Manchester City overpowered Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 in their delayed Champions League Group C opener.
Kelechi Iheanacho also got on the scoresheet late on as City made up for lost time after torrential rain washed out the first attempt to play the fixture at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
Aguero, who is currently suspended from domestic action, opened the scoring after nine minutes, added a second from the penalty spot and completed his treble after 77 minutes before Iheanacho added a fourth.
It was another highly convincing performance by City, who did not even seem to get into top gear as they cruised to a seventh successive win under Pep Guardiola.
City, much like last weekend's derby against Manchester United, were superb in the first half, with their movement quick and passing crisp and this time maintained their domination for longer.

Manchester United failing on and off the pitch as decay sets in

Champions League place have bolstered their squads while United have dithered. It is difficult to shake the suspicion that United have become the one thing that they should fear above all -- they have become complacent.
The period of success under Sir Alex Ferguson was so prolonged that the boardroom probably still bears the scent of champagne, and the club's finances are in such rude health that they will give little hint that the party is over. There has been much talk of how Van Gaal is paving the way to the next successful manager to take over but who exactly would that be
Who is there in the immediate future, save a desperate lunge for Pep Guardiola, who could return the club to anything like the glory to which they have become accustomed? So many of the managers out there on the market are either inexperienced or merely very, very good -- meaning that there are no shortcuts to greatness, but rather that United must seek prominence the same way as every other big club, which…

Wenger critical of Guardiola decision to announce Bayern exit

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not believe Pep Guardiola has handled his imminent Bayern Munich departure correctly. The Spaniard announced on the weekend that he would be leaving the German champions at the end of the season, sparking plenty of interest from Premier League clubs Manchester City and Chelsea.

Glenn Hoddle: Pep Guardiola still has everything to prove

Pep Guardiola still has "everything to prove" as a manager and moving to the Barclays Premier League will be the "biggest test" of his career, Glenn Hoddle has claimed. Manchester City and Chelsea are both said to be pursuing the Bayern Munich boss after he announced he will end his spell with the German giants at the end of the season.


Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge thinks he knows Pep Guardiola's next club. Rummenigge refused to reveal the identity of the team, despite admitting Guardiola told him two weeks ago that he was leaving, because he believes it is not his place to say. Guardiola has been widely linked with a move to the Premier League with reported interest from both Manchester clubs and Chelsea. "I think I know where he is going," Rummenigge told Bild. "But I want to leave the announcement to him or his new employer. "At the Christmas party two weeks ago he came to me, he told me that he was looking for a new challenge and almost apologised. It was clearly difficult for him, I'm not disappointed in him." Rummenigge decided to instead focus on the talents of Carlo Ancelotti, who will take over at Bayern Munich when Guardiola leaves.
