Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus said on Wednesday that he had been “surprised” by his extraordinary start to life in the Premier League.

The Brazilian forward who has scored three goals in four games since completing his 27 million move from Brazilian side Palmeiras, has admitted that he is delighted with his strong start for the club, but is ‘very surprised’ at how fast it has happened.

The 19-year old rising star arrived in England last month after City agreed a deal with Brazilian side Palmeiras in pre-season.

While some overseas players take time to adjust to the physicality and pace of the Premier League, Jesus has settled in immediately with three goals in four appearances, including a double in Sunday’s 2-1 win at home to Swansea.

Such has been his impact, he has kept Argentina ace Sergio Aguero out of the side for the last two matches and Kelechi Iheanacho out of the squad altogether, which has in turn led to speculation about the future of both strikers at Manchester. Continue reading

Guardiola Confirms Vincent Kompany Remains Part of Plans

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that defender Vincent Kompany still remains in his plans despite the numerous injury problems faced by the Belgian international.

The last time the 30-year-old made more than 40 appearances in a single campaign across all competitions was back in the 2011-12 campaign. Since then, he has been plagued by a one injury after the other and it has especially become worse in the last couple of seasons. He made only 22 appearances last season and most were as a substitute, while the season he has suffered featured in only five games.

Kompany was expected to be an integral part of the Guardiola regime considering that he is one of the top ball-playing centre backs around. However, his injury concern is a major problem for the club considering that they have been struggling on a defensive front with the leadership skills of the Belgian.

Manuel Pellegrini worried about Points Table

Manuel Pellegrini believes that finishing in fifth spot of the Premier league will be a disaster come true for Manchester City.

The club were regarded as title contenders at the start of the campaign, but inconsistent form throughout the season has seen them slowly slip out of title contention. Now, they are in a position where they could realistically miss out on Champions League qualification for next season. They are fourth in the table, but Manchester United have reduced the deficit to City to just one point with two games left. City, worryingly, take on Arsenal away from home.

The gunners will be able to seal the third spot, which will guarantee automatic qualification to the Champions League, with a victory against City. This will be the foremost aim of Arsene Wenger’s team and it will not be easy to play against them at home. United seem to have the momentum and are favourites to win the remaining two matches. City have allowed themselves to be in this position after prioritising the Champions League semifinals over the league. Pellegrini, who will leave at the end of the campaign, seems to have desired going out on a high rather than ensuring top four finish since it will no longer be his problem come the end of the campaign.

“If you are not in the top four and in the Champions League the next year, to demonstrate you are one of the best teams in England, then for me it’s a disaster of a season.That’s why I always said last year, when we didn’t win any titles, that it was not a disaster. It was not a good season but a disaster is when you are not involved in the next season’s Champions League. That is a disaster for all the big teams,” saidPellegrini.

Liverpool’s disappointing start to the campaign

Liverpool’s disappointing start to the campaign went from bad to worse after a 1-1 draw against Norwich City at Anfield.

The club has scored only four goals in the league so far while managing only two wins from the opening six games. This disappointing run of form is already threatening to result in manager Brendan Rodgers losing his job. There has to be a quick turnaround of results, but Liverpool are in a dire situation and it will take a lot of effort to get a win with such low levels of confidence. However, first-team coach Gary McAllister believes that the discontent from fans will certainly help infuse some fighting spirit in the squad.

The club could not have asked before a much easier fixture in the form of Carlisle United at home in the League Cup. This provides a perfect platform for the Liverpool players to get the test of winning once again. The team is without a win in the last five matches. However, they opened their campaign with two back-to-back 1-0 victory. The upcoming game against Carlisle is one of the three home games on the bounce. At the moment, though, Liverpool players will be quite happy at playing away from Anfield due to the reduced pressure. Continue reading
