buy amoxil australia Former Arsenal forward Paul Mariner breaks down how Manchester City were able to dominate the Gunners while urging patience with Unai Emery's side. Last September, we looked at the most important players at Manchester City. With the new season underway, who are the risers and fallers?

Performance, potential, the ability to make an impact and influence the course of a game, other options in that area of the field, the ability or inability to replace them and market value have all played a part in revising...

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 07:34:00 PDT

follow Manchester City picked up where they left off last season with a dominant performance to win 2-0 at Arsenal. It is worth noting that the defending Premier League champions unpicked the opposition on Unai Emery's debut without Gabriel Jesus, Fabian Delph, Leroy Sane, David Silva, Nicolas Otamendi and Kevin De Bruyne in the starting lineup. In other words, six of their 11 most frequently used players from last season were missing, when they set a new Premier League points total with 100. The scary...

Craig Burley and Paul Mariner believe Arsenal will have to be judged against the rest of the Prem because the gulf in quality against Man City was too great. Former Arsenal forward Paul Mariner breaks down how Manchester City were able to dominate the Gunners while urging patience with Unai Emery's side. On Sunday afternoon at the Emirates, we were supposed to discover about Arsenal's new approach under their new Spanish manager Unai Emery. Instead, we learned about Manchester City's new approach under their "old" Spanish manager, Pep Guardiola. Arsenal have a fresh manager, but City have fresher ideas, and this match could prove more significant in signalling the away side's intentions for this season. A new manager's first starting XI is considered the template the manager's future tactical approach....

Pep Guardiola takes jab at Benjamin Mendy and his hilarious Twitter account

Sun, 12 Aug 2018 02:07:00 PDT

costco childrens motrin Benjamin Mendy's witty Twitter account has landed him in a bit of trouble with Pep Guardiola. It has been quite an eventful year for Manchester City left-back Benjamin Mendy. From moving from Monaco to City, to suffering an ACL rupture, to winning both the Premier League and the World Cup, it certainly has been a whirlwind 12 months for the Frenchman.  Despite playing just seven times last season for City, the Frenchman was ever-present thanks in large part to his vibrant presence on social media. Mendy became an instant hit last season in England with fans for his witty and quite...

You could be forgiven for thinking the Premier League had never been away. Manchester City picked up where they left off at the end of their record-breaking season and, despite having tired legs and personnel that had missed most of preseason, took a comfortable victory at Arsenal. The shape of the team was different, but the outcome was the same -- and the signs are this could be another exciting campaign. Positives City looked rusty. But despite that, they were able to keep Arsenal at arm's...

Man City's win over Arsenal suggests they can get even better in title-defending season

Sun, 12 Aug 2018 10:09:00 PDT

Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva provided the goals to help Manchester City begin their title defense with a 2-0 win over Arsenal. LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Manchester City's 2-0 Premier League win over Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday. 1. City demonstrate they're prepared to title defence Not since 2008-09 has the Premier League title been retained, but it's difficult to remember any previous champions looking as dominant as this Manchester City at the start of the following campaign. There is serious competition at the top of the division this season: Liverpool will improve from last term, Chelsea have...

Arsenal's Unai Emery and Man City's Pep Guardiola set to renew tactical chess game in England

Fri, 10 Aug 2018 01:30:00 PDT

Pep Guardiola explains why Manchester City were not more active in the summer transfer window, only adding Riyad Mahrez for a club-record fee. Despite Unai Emery's fresh ideas at Arsenal, ESPN FC's Craig Burley isn't so sure the Gunners will secure a top four spot. When Arsenal were building the Emirates, Arsene Wenger wanted the Gunners' new stadium to be like the Mestalla. On previous visits with Arsenal, he'd been struck by the steepness of Valencia's ground. Would it be possible, Wenger enquired, for the Emirates to mimic the claustrophobic Mestalla, complete with steep stands that felt like four vertical walls? Alas, building regulations in Britain differ from those in Spain, and Arsenal were forced to settle for a significantly lesser gradient -- 7.5...

Things have happened very quickly for Daniel Arzani. At the start of this year, he was virtually unknown even in Australia. Now, just a few months later, he is considered one of the brightest prospects Australia has produced in years, made a positive impression as the youngest player at the World Cup in Russia, signed for Manchester City and prepares to start an exciting adventure on loan at Celtic. At the current rate of progress, the sky is the limit for the Iranian-born prodigy -- yet everything...

Training the Pep Guardiola way: A day with Manchester City

Tue, 7 Aug 2018 12:42:00 PDT

After a record-breaking campaign in 2017-18, the FC crew assess the expectations for Manchester City in the Premier League this season. "When I have the ball, I have the chance to score a goal," Pep Guardiola once said, explaining why all the teams he has managed place such emphasis on keeping the ball. Last season, Manchester City set a Premier League record for possession and that transferred itself more league-high marks, including points (100), goals (106) and winning margin (19 points). While the philosophy might be simple -- Get the ball, keep the ball, pass the ball and when the time is right, score -- there is much more...

Bernardo Silva 9/10 as Man City stroll to shield win vs. Chelsea

Sun, 5 Aug 2018 10:53:00 PDT

Steve Nicol lauds the Man City attack and inclusion of Riyad Mahrez, while expressing concern over the work ahead for Maurizio Sarri and Chelsea. Sergio Aguero scored twice, including his 200th goal with Manchester City, to lead his club to a 2-0 win over Chelsea and win the Community Shield. An absolutely fabulous 2017-18 does not seem to have dulled the spirit as City set about an experimental Chelsea side with vim and vigour. By the end, a master-class by Willy Caballero against his old teammates was the only thing hindering Man City from running up a cricket score as they settled for a 2-0 victory. Positives The sun-drenched stroll afforded Pep Guardiola the chance to blood some of the club's promising youngsters as the second half wound down in simple fashion. Negatives Chances...

Sun, 5 Aug 2018 09:30:00 PDT

Sergio Aguero scored twice, including his 200th goal with Manchester City, to lead his club to a 2-0 win over Chelsea and win the Community Shield. LONDON -- Three points from Man City's comfortable 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Community Shield. 1. Man City cruise to easy victory Ultimately, Sunday's victory wasn't a massive shock, as it was expected that last season's Premier League champions, with a settled squad and genius of a manager, would easily beat a side who started preseason training with the old coach in charge and have thus barely had time to get used to their new manager, Maurizio Sarri. Still, Manchester City's amble to...

Man City record breaker Sergio Aguero deserves more recognition

Sun, 5 Aug 2018 07:36:00 PDT

FA Community Shield: Sergio Aguero (13') Chelsea 0-1 Manchester City Manuel Pellegrini claimed he was capable of challenging Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to become the best player in the world; Pep Guardiola said he should be doing more. But throughout his Manchester City career, Sergio Aguero has continued to do what he does best: score goals. Aguero scored his first of the season in Sunday's Community Shield clash with Chelsea, but more significantly his 200th goal. The Argentina international is now in his eighth season at the Etihad Stadium and has already...

Thu, 2 Aug 2018 11:57:00 PDT

Pep Gaurdiola and Maurizio Sarri dished out the compliments ahead of Manchester City and Chelsea's Community Shield clash. Paul Mariner says it's imperative for new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to convince Willian to stay. Time moves fast in football. In the short term, it's remarkable that we're already preparing for Sunday's Community Shield between Manchester City and Chelsea at Wembley (10 a.m. ET, ESPN+), just three weeks after France were holding the World Cup trophy aloft in Moscow. In the longer term, it's incredible that Pep Guardiola is now a decade into his managerial career. Other revolutionary managers find themselves washed up 10 years after their "defining" campaign, as Guardiola's 2008-09 season should...

Neymar says he is staying at PSG this season, but Shaka Hislop explains how Kylian Mbappe's rise could affect the Brazilian's future. Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has revealed his son is a huge fan of Paris Saint-Germain teenager Kylian Mbappe. Aguero was asked by a supporter on Instagram who his son Benjamin's favourite footballers are.

Following his exclusive interview with ESPN FC, Mark Ogden tries to decode the two positions Jose Mourinho might like to reinforce this transfer window. Robert Lewandowski, Arturo Vidal and others make up today's Transfer Rater, but who's most likely to make a move before the summer window closes? Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino feels English sides are at a disadvantage to European clubs due to the transfer window closing earlier. Former Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson reflects on the Gunners' dealings in January and how the pieces fit together. There's just a week to go until the transfer window closes, and while Jose Mourinho is angry with Manchester United's lack of business, Liverpool have spent big as they look to catch Manchester City. The champions have added Riyad Mahrez to a squad that finished 19 points clear last term, and Arsenal start a new era with Unai Emery and Chelsea have Maurizio Sarri.
