EPL: Aguero discloses club that can beat Man City



Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has admitted that Liverpool is the only team that can “hurt” them in the Premier League this season.

In an interview with France Football, Aguero was asked about Liverpool usurping Manchester United as City’s main challengers in recent years.

Although he disagreed with the idea that Jurgen Klopp’s side are now City’s biggest antagonists – an accolade he still reserves for United – he did acknowledge that Liverpool are worthy title rivals.

“It may be the Clasico for television, but for us, the Clasico, it’s the match against United,” Aguero said in reference to City’s impending visit to Anfield.

“Liverpool has always been a tough opponent. But when I arrived, the team we were fighting for the title was United.

“Initially, it was something strange in [Manchester] that City competes against United. Then there was Chelsea. But these last four seasons, Liverpool have become a very strong team and are now fighting with us to win the Premier League.

“They are the only team in the league that can hurt us. They have been chasing a new league title for years.

“Last season, they didn’t go all the way, so they are very motivated. This year, they are in front of us and will try to go to the end.”

City travel to Anfield on Sunday, trailing Liverpool at the summit by six points.

PSG flays Zidane over comments on Mbappe



Paris Saint-Germain Sporting Director, Leonardo, has hit back at Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, after he spoke about Kylian Mbappe’s “dream” to play for the Spanish giants.

Zidane discussed Mbappe’s reported admiration ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Galatasaray, leaving Leonardo unimpressed.

“Honestly, it is a bit irritating.

“I think it is not the time to talk about it.

“First of all, Kylian is a player under contract with us for two and a half more years. Speaking all the time about dreams and will, I think it is time to stop a bit.

“Kylian is very important for us — he is the best young French player, a world champion and one of the best players in the world. This is not the time to knock him and destabilise him. Honestly, it is time for this to stop,” Leonardo told reporters, after PSG’s 1-0 win over Club Brugge.

EPL: Manchester United to be sold on one condition



Manchester United’s owners, the Glazer family, will sell the club on one condition, according to The Athletic.

The Glazer family will only sell the club if they receive a massive financial offer in the region of £4billion.

United supremos have been tipped to sell up with talk of a mega-money Saudi Arabia takeover from Mohammed bin Salman refusing to die down.

Manchester United chief Richard Arnold was pictured in the Middle East last week, posing with officials who even gave him his own Saudi jersey.

The newspaper reports they would only sell for a huge amount, potentially exceeding £4billion.

That would make any takeover the highest in Premier League history, dwarfing the £790million the Glazers paid to take control of the club in 2005.

Fenway Sports Group paid £280m to acquire Liverpool in 2010 and, two years before that, Sheik Mansour completed a £210m takeover of Manchester City.

Roman Abramovich paid £140m to take control of Chelsea in 2003, with the Russian then changing the landscape of English football.

EPL: Joe Cole explains why Man United lost 1-0 to Bournemouth



Former Chelsea winger, Joe Cole, has identified fatigue as the major reason Manchester United lost to Bournemouth on Saturday.

United travelled to the South Coast on Saturday buoyed from three consecutive away wins in all competitions.

Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side created some early chances but went into the break 1-0 down after some sloppy defending from Aaron Wan-Bissaka allowed Josh King to steer home a half-volley.

Bournemouth came out after the break a changed side, defending in a compact block and inviting United to try to break them down.

The Red Devils threw all they could at the Cherries but failed in their endeavours.

“I think there was a lack of movement,” Cole said on BT Sport.

“We’ve seen them in the last three games; Martial has been popping up on the left, Rashford’s been lively, James has come inside, people have been in the hole. A lot of good rotation.

“Today it was just straight lines. They looked a bit fatigued as well, I don’t think this team’s capable of playing three or four games in 10 days.

“I don’t think they’ve got the quality and depth,” the pundit added.

“The young lads, in particular, are going to find it difficult. As the years go by it will get easier.

“To play in Europe, play in the League Cup and then play today caught up with them.”
