This is not a drill! The newly minted Premier League champs Liverpool were hosted at the Etihad Thursday night by the former champions Manchester City. Pep Guardiola had confirmed that his side will give the guard of honour to the Reds. They did rightly so but what happened next remains shocking.
flogged Liverpool 4-0, leaving everyone including themselves shocked at the scoreline. Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bryne pretty much ran the show, and they were clinical!The English winger won a controversial penalty against Joe Gomez which the Belgian converted from the spot in the 25th minute.
Barcelona have emerged as a serious contender for the signature of teen star Cesar Gelabert. In a twist of events the Blaugrana have now declared their interest in the highly rated academy product of their old rivals Real Madrid.
The youngster is in loggerhead with parent club Real Madrid over a long-term contract extension. The future of the player is uncertain, and Barcelona are watching the player’s contract issue with keen interest. The club is ready to make the move for the player as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
After a vehement Liverpool fan made a Twitter post that displayed the footage made by Babel’s Romeo Di Marzio, several comments arose from other fans of Liverpool and Ryan Babel of course. The footage was in mockery of the injured opponent in Ajax’s Europa League game against Getafe where they had a 2-0 win. The post also put out a question to the general public asking if it was right for Babel to make fun of the player or not. The first option held, “Yes, he was faking it” while the second was on the opposing side of, “No, he was bang out of order”.
Below the post were several responses and comments from fans and supporters for either of the comments. In the footage, one could clearly see Babel mockingly imitating an opponent for the Getafe side who had gone down to the floor in an apparent injury.
Manchester City attacker Bernardo Silva has talked about the prospect of Manchester City going all the way and winning their maiden Champions League crown. The Citizens have endured a difficult Premier League campaign where they have been brushed aside by Liverpool during the first half of the season and they are already 14 points behind the Reds at the top of the table, having played an extra game more.
As a result, their prospects of retaining the league title for the third year running seem non-existent at the moment and Silva has acknowledged the same. However, the Portuguese footballer has started the club can still defend the FA Cup and League Cup titles from the previous year and while challenging for the Champions League crown where they have disappointingly fallen short over the past few years.
Manchester City have been good this season but not necessarily at their best with some poor results which has seen them lose pace with leaders Liverpool. However, Pep Guardiola has a growing problem in the attack which has been on for the past three seasons.
The choice between Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus has been one that has plagued the Spaniard since the arrival of the Brazilian three seasons ago. Initially, Gabriel Jesus had the edge with the Brazilian, high pressing a major factor in Guardiola’s decision.
Aguero is relaxing the Champions League clash in City. He is in a great form and hoping to surprise match followers this as well just like his last performances. But right now he is relaxing with his love Sofia Calzetti, who is a model and a student. Sergio Aguero has photographed with his girl Ibiza recently ahead of Champions League clash that will take place in the City itself. The couple was captured soaking up in the sun before today’s side match played against Shakhtar Donetsk. They seem to enjoy each other’s company.
Sofia Calzetti shared Formentera’s snap as they looked in front of the sunset into the distance; she has posted this picture on her Instagram account. Smitten Sofia posted the picture with the caption: “I love him.” At the beginning of this year, the Argentinean player Sergio Aguero started dating Sofia last year. It is being one year they are in this relationship. Sofia who is a model confirmed that she is in love with Aguero in the month of May.
Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero are the two veterans are now busy in making up for squad’ struggles in the tournament before the beginning of quarter-final opposite Venezuela.
This was the welcoming gesture for the squad of Argentine. When the team reached in Rio de Janeiro before the Copa America knockout stage, fabled club a famous club of the host city, Fluminense, had the set of shirts that are a replica and was kept as a gift.
Sergio Aguero’s place on the list as the greatest striker to play for Manchester City is without doubt as he holds the all-time scoring record at the club. However, the forward would add more history to his stay at the club if he can lead the team past a trying week.
Manchester City have a series of fixtures that could have a huge bearing on their season as they face Tottenham at home in quick succession before making the trip to Old Trafford. The Argentine was partly at fault for the poor first leg result at White Hart Lane last Tuesday as he missed an early penalty for the Citizens.
Gael Clichy is a French professional footballer plays as a left-back in the defending position. He had served for Arsenal since 2004-2011 after which he was transferred to Man city in 2011. Both of which times he had a remarkable fee for himself i.e. £338k and £6.98m respectively.
But recently when he was transferred to Basaksehir it was literally for free. But it seems that his current market value had been reduced to £2.25m only which reached its peak at £14.45m once too. He is a very experienced and professional player and served both the teams with his all. He had an injury in August 2018 but recovered from it quite well, however again an injury was followed on the 9th of Feb due to which he has been excluded from the Basaksehir who went up against the Antalyaspor.
Injuries to the primary midfielder have left the manager of the team with a selection problem before the midweek European clash. Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City manager has claimed that he has 15 available senior players for the Champions League game against Hoffenheim after Frenandinho and David Silva were injured.
Silva is going to be out for several weeks after he sustained an apparent injury in the hamstring in loss of Man City by 2-1 at Chelsea. Fernandinho completed the first league defeat of the team of their defense for the title. However, they weren’t comfortable at the end of ninety minutes.
