Can Guardiola salvage Man City’s season?

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola conceded the Premier League title to Liverpool long ago, but his side’s profligate attack and porous defence are becoming worrying trends. A sixth defeat of the campaign, at Tottenham on Sunday, means City have now lost as many times this season as in their previous 84 league games under Guardiola and are relying on cup competitions to salvage their season. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are 22 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool Guardiola’s men are into a third consecutive League Cup final, where they will be heavy favourites to beat Aston Villa on March 1. They face Sheffield Wednesday in the fifth round of the FA Cup. However, City’s season will now be judged on how they fare in the Champions League, with the might of 13-time winners Real Madrid awaiting them in the last 16. An inability to progress beyond the quarter-finals in Guardiola’s three seasons at City so far has been the major disappointment of an otherwise hugely successful reign. “I will be judged, if we don’t win it in my final period here, that I will be a failure here. I know that,” said the City boss ahead of this weekend. Relying on Laporte Read Also: EPL: Steven Bergwijn delighted after debut goal for Tottenham “Maybe one day we make a click and we change it. I think the team is good, I like the way my team play but it is not enough.” Guardiola has garnered a reputation as one of football’s all-time great coaches after winning 28 trophies in three different countries with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and City. A true test of that greatness will be whether he can turn the tide in the next few weeks to avoid City’s season ending limply. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 If they are to be crowned European champions, City need major improvements at both ends of the pitch, but tightening up at the back is the most pressing priority. In their back-to-back title winning campaigns, Guardiola’s men conceded 27 goals in 2017⁄18 and 23 last season. With 13 games still to play this season, they have already conceded 29. The loss of Aymeric Laporte for most of the season with a serious knee injury and failure to replace the departed Vincent Kompany has left Guardiola short on reliable centre-backs due to the erratic form of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi. Laporte is back fit, although he has been bedded in slowly after making his return in a 1-0 win at Sheffield United nearly two weeks ago. Aymeric Laporte made his return from a long-term knee injury two weeks ago Sergio Aguero (left) and Ilkay Gundogan (bottom) missed huge chances for Manchester City in a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham The 2-0 defeat in north London on Sunday was only the second time City have failed to score in the league this season. They have still scored five more goals in the league than Liverpool, who are 22 points clear at the top and streaking towards the title. However, a failure to take their chances has also been a recurring theme of City’s season. Against Spurs they had 18 shots to Tottenham’s three, missed a penalty and a series of other sitters. “Always I believe and, today more than ever, you are closer to win the games when you create more chances and concede few,” insisted Guardiola. The Frenchman still has another three weeks to get up to speed before City visit Madrid on February 26, but needs to get back close to his best if the visitors are to escape from the Bernabeu unscathed. Guardiola also has to decide who he trusts to start at left-back against Madrid. Oleksandr Zinchenko cost his side the game at Tottenham by getting sent off for a second yellow card with half an hour to play. Benjamin Mendy has not won back Guardiola’s trust in another season dogged by fitness problems and poor form, while Angelino, who started some of City’s biggest games of the season, against Liverpool and Manchester United, was shipped out on loan to Leipzig last week.

Pellegrini pleased to add pace

first_img Pellegrini added: “He will provide a variety of attacking options for us and he can also score goals as well as create them for others. He is an excellent signing for the club. “Jesus is a world and European champion and a regular squad member in a very special Spain team.” Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho has been brought in from Shakhtar Donetsk and Pellegrini said the 28-year-old was one of his major summer targets. “I made Fernandinho one of the top priorities. He has impressed me on a number of occasions over the past few years and is another player I’ve taken a keen interest in,” the Blues boss told mcfc.co.uk. “He is an experienced international who will further strengthen our midfield and I think he will be well suited to the Premier League. He is a superb athlete with a wide range of passing, can score goals and most importantly, can quickly turn defence into attack. “Both Jesus and Fernandinho add pace and skill to what is already a very talented and successful squad. I am looking forward to working with both our new signings and to working with the players who have already won a Premier League title together. “We have a very strong pool and together we aim to achieve great things.” New Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini believes adding more pace to his squad puts them in better shape to regain their Premier League title. The Chilean has spoken of speed being a key component in the armoury of the club’s two summer signings Jesus Navas and Fernandinho. Pellegrini is looking to add more before the start of the season, but appears to be losing the battle to be reunited with Isco, whom he coached at former club Malaga. Nevertheless Pellegrini is delighted by the two acquisitions already made. “Jesus is a player I know well from La Liga and he is someone I have admired for a long time,” he said. “He is quick, has excellent technique and I think the City fans will enjoy watching him play.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Pierluigi Collina uses Luke Shaw injury to highlight the need for safety first

first_img “We want to have the players playing and not players recovering from long-term injuries. “We certainly reminded our referees to be very, very careful with this matter. “We would like also to remind players to be very careful when they make challenges. We would like to convince them that getting the football is not everything. “If a player hits the ball and then endangers the opponent, he is convinced that the job was done correctly.” UEFA chief refereeing officer Pierluigi Collina has reminded officials of their responsibility to player safety after Luke Shaw’s nasty leg break. A little more than three weeks have passed since the 20-year-old left-back’s fine start to the season was brought to an abrupt halt in Manchester United’s Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven. Shaw suffered a double leg break in a tackle by Hector Moreno, leading to two operations and a lengthy spell on the sidelines that could end extinguish his Euro 2016 hopes. Press Association Collina found it “tough” it to watch and was disappointed by the reaction of referee Nicola Rizzoli as well as the players. “If you see the clip in PSV v Man United when Shaw was heavily injured and (had his) leg broken, the defender played ball and legs,” the UEFA refereeing chief said, speaking at the Leaders in Sport Business Summit 2015. “On the field, nobody reacted because what was perceived, even by players on the field of play, was that the ball was played. “This is the thought of many: if the ball is played, it is not even a foul. “We need to make people, even the football community, aware that if you want to protect the safety of the player, even challenges on the ball but risking in terms of endangering safety of an opponent can be punished, should be punished. “Football is not everything, safety comes more than the football itself.” Collina said Moreno’s challenge “should have been punished” and that incident, along with one which saw Barcelona’s Rafinha seriously hurt, led UEFA to contact its officials. “We immediately reminded all of our referees how it is important to be careful in assessing those challenges that can be rated as reckless or even a serious problem,” he said. last_img read more

Romelu Lukaku’s red-hot form takes him to seven goals in six for Everton

first_img DECEMBER 1 v MIDDLESBROUGH Lukaku’s purple patch stretched from November into December as he doubled the Toffees’ advantage in a 2-0 Capital One Cup win over Middlesbrough to send the Merseysiders through to the semi-finals. No prizes for guessing who supplied the cross as Lukaku glanced Deulofeu’s fine near-post delivery into the far corner in a manner reminiscent of his first goal against Aston Villa. DECEMBER 7 v CRYSTAL PALACE It had looked like being one of those nights for both Lukaku and Everton as they failed to convert their second-half dominance into goals. The hosts’ centre-forward had hit a post and the crossbar either side of Scott Dann’s headed opener, but when Deulofeu drilled a ball across the six-yard box, Lukaku was on hand to turn home from close range to keep the streak alive and score his 50th Toffees goal in his 100th outing for the club. NOVEMBER 1 v SUNDERLAND Lukaku was part of a brilliant performance in a 6-2 victory over Sam Allardyce’s Black Cats at Goodison. Strike partner Arouna Kone grabbed the headlines with a hat-trick but Lukaku, who would have flicked in the third had Sebastian Coates not beaten him to it, got in on the act to score the fourth. He collected Gerard Deulofeu’s defence-splitting pass, knocked it around Costel Pantilimon and rolled into the net. NOVEMBER 7 v WEST HAM Prior to this trip to London, Lukaku had scored in each of his previous six games against the Hammers as an Everton player. Roberto Martinez’s side were trailing to a classy finish from Manuel Lanzini but they were able to rely on their big Belgian to produce the goods again in a 1-1 draw. It was a carbon copy of his strike against Sunderland, Deulofeu again supplying the pass as Adrian was the goalkeeper made to look foolish this time. NOVEMBER 21 v ASTON VILLA The only double of Lukaku’s scoring run came against Aston Villa on an afternoon when Ross Barkley also bagged a brace as the Toffees routed the struggling midlands club 4-0. Lukaku’s first was a header directed into the far corner from Seamus Coleman’s right-wing cross and he rounded off a brilliant team move, involving both Deulofeu and Barkley, to stroke in his second and Everton’s fourth. NOVEMBER 28 v BOURNEMOUTH It was the Deulofeu-and-Lukaku connection again on the south coast to put the visitors 2-0 up in a thrilling contest that would end 3-3 following dramatic late goals at either end. The Barcelona graduate spotted Lukaku’s run off Steve Cook and the Belgian took one touch, continued to hold off the defender and rifled in a near-post finish past Australia international Adam Federici in the Bournemouth goal. Romelu Lukaku’s red-hot form continued on Monday night as the Everton forward netted for the sixth successive match in all competitions. The Belgian rescued a point for the Toffees with an 81st-minute finish against Crystal Palace at Goodison Park to take his tally for the calendar year to 27 goals, while it was also his 50th Everton goal in 100 appearances. Here, Press Association Sport details his current scoring streak. Press Associationlast_img read more
