Guardiola refuses to throw in the towel after Newcastle defeat

Aymeric Laporte has urged Manchester City to make Arsenal pay for their shock defeat at Newcastle as they attempt to keep their Premier League title challenge alive.

The Ajax midfielder has agreed a deal to join Barca for the 2019-20 season in an €86 million (£75m/$98m) deal, but De Jong confirmed in an interview he held talks with both Paris Saint-Germain and City manager Guardiola before choosing LaLiga's leaders. Aguero pounced on the loose ball to poke home from close range for his 17th goal of the season. Man City took an early lead through Sergio Agüero before Salomon Rondon and the Ritchie secured the three points for the Magpies.

There was worse to come for City in the 80th minute.

"It wasn't our best. I don't have a clue where I was 29 years ago, but a lot of people dream of that and that's what we try to deliver".

Instead, it turned into the mystifying ordeal of a wholly unexpected 2-1 defeat at St James' Park that leaves the brilliant Spanish coach facing the toughest challenge of his City stewardship as he sees their title slipping away. "The advantage is not there, but we need to continue".

Kompany, whose contract ends this season, has missed numerous games due to muscle injuries in the past few seasons and Guardiola said a contract extension is something the club will have to discuss with the player and his agent.

Andy Reid has the most to gain, lose in conference championship games
The Chiefs allowed 5.0 yards per carry against opposing offenses this year, second-worst in the league. Just like in that matchup, I believe the total has been set too high in tonight's AFC title game.

"But we are in January, so we have a lot of titles and games still to play". "There are still many games and anything can happen", he said. Being in the competition until the last stages.

He lost that ideal streak, but still finished impressed by United's never-say-die spirit at Old Trafford.

The Clarets doubled their lead 30 minutes later with a header by an unmarked Chris Wood from a cross by Ashley Westwood. And their former boss was the subject of their affection.

The home side got off to the flawless start when Sadio Mane put them ahead after only two minutes, but they failed to capitalise.

United poured forward and Victor Lindelof snatched the equalizer in the final seconds. As far as future goalkeeper cover goes, the club's parent company City Football Group have signed the American Zack Steffen from Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, to arrive in July.

Puel managed Van Dijk during his year-long spell in charge of Southampton during the 2016-17 campaign and felt then that the centre-back was among the best, although a little rough around the edges.
