Guardiola reveals pride at securing the toughest Premier League title yet

Manchester City FC 11 May, 2021 - 08:09pm

It’s City’s third league title win in four seasons and the tenth major trophy won under Guardiola’s management.

Our first Premier League success under his leadership in 2017-18 saw us cruise to the title with an English football record 100 points as we finished 19 clear of second-placed Manchester United.

That was followed by a remarkable 98 points the following campaign as we edged out a superb Liverpool side to become the first team in 10 years to win back-to-back Premier League trophies.

But with the difficulties City have faced this term due to the global COVID-19 health pandemic, which has caused a truncated season and a relentless fixture schedule, Guardiola says this has been his hardest Premier League campaign to date.

“This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,” the City manager reflected. “This was the hardest one. We will always remember this season for the way that we won. I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players.

“They are so special. To come through this season – with all the restrictions and difficulties we’ve faced – and show the consistency we have is remarkable.

“It is relentless. Every single day, they are there, fighting for success, trying always to be better. They have been so, so resilient.

“That is equally true of each and every member of our backroom staff, who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that our players are fully equipped to take on the unexpected challenges and new routines throughout such a turbulent year.

“Not forgetting, of course, all of the staff across our organisation who work to make this club the success it is. Whether that’s been from the offices at CFA or working from home, the efforts of every employee in such trying circumstances have contributed to this achievement.”

City’s season could yet get even better.

Last week’s 2-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain in our UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg completed a 4-1 aggregate victory and saw us progress to our maiden final.

Should we go on to win Europe’s elite prize, it would see a beautiful new chapter in the Club’s history written.

But Guardiola says the Premier League title is always his team’s primary objective.

“At the start of every season, the Premier League is the most important title for us,” he said.

“This is the one where you have to be there every three days, playing all your rivals home and away.

“Only by being the very best, week in week out, can you win this competition. It is a huge success.”

The boss also sent a special message to the City fans, whose support from afar has helped his players get over the line.

Due to the restrictions caused by the Coronavirus outbreak, we have been without our fans all season, except for the 2,000 who cheered us on at Wembley as we won our fourth Carabao Cup in a row.

And in a year that saw us say goodbye to Club legend Colin Bell, Guardiola says this one is for Colin and his family.

“It is so important to say a huge thank to all our fans,” he added.

“In our toughest moments, we couldn’t hear the crowd get behind us as usual, but we know they are with us everywhere we go and that has lifted us.

“I promise them we sense their love, we appreciate it and we could not have done what we have done without it.

“I hope we can all celebrate together one day not too far away.

“It has been such a hard year for so many people. This one is really for our fans and for Colin Bell and all his family.”

Manchester United XI vs Liverpool: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup, latest injury updates

Yahoo Eurosport UK 11 May, 2021 - 02:49pm

The Old Trafford clash against Premier League champions Liverpool is the third of three games in five days for United following a fixture pile-up.

United beat Aston Villa 3-1 at Villa Park on Sunday to kickstart the run with a win, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - who was furious with the Premier League’s scheduling - made 10 changees for Tuesday’s home game against Leicester City.

Solskjaer named virtually a second-string XI featuring the likes of Amad Diallo, Anthony Elanga and Donny van de Beek, and Leicester left Old Trafford with a 2-1 win.

The upside to that result is that Solskjaer was able to rest near enough his whole starting lineup before the Liverpool game, meaning there will be wholesale changes again.

Dean Henderson will return in goal, as will Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw at wing-back - though Harry Maguire is out with ankle ligament damage.

With Victor Lindelof likely to return at centre-back, Solskjaer must pick either Eric Bailly or Axel Tuanzebe to partner him - and while the latter fared better against Leicester, Bailly should get the nod.

In midfield, Fred and Scott McTominay will come back in, while Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani are likely to start.

The key decision in attack will be whether Solskjaer opts for Mason Greenwood or Marcus Rashford on the right flank. Greenwood is in far better form, and the fact that he came off with time to spare against Leicester suggests that was a substitution to save him for this game.

As for injuries, Maguire joins Anthony Martial and Phil Jones on the sidelines.

Man Utd predicted XI: (4-2-3-1) Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Pogba; Cavani

Injury list: Maguire, Martial, Jones

The Catalan giants are now one point behind LaLiga leaders Atletico Madrid.

The value of the Red Devils’ social media channels is contingent on keeping supporters onside, an analyst has said.

The striker scored twice on his return from injury to set up a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Formula One's governing body has warned teams it will introduce new rear wing flexibility tests next month amid suspicions of rule bending. Mercedes' seven times world champion Lewis Hamilton flagged up the issue after qualifying for last weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, which he won. Red Bull team principal Christian Horner told reporters on Sunday his cars' rear wings had passed stringent tests and were legal.

The club are also focused on European glory.

Ronald Koeman’s side move second but Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have a game in hand.

Barcelona twice threw away the lead to draw 3-3 at Levante on Tuesday in a potentially fatal blow to their chances of winning the La Liga title. The draw took Barca into second place in the standings on 76 points, one behind leaders Atletico Madrid and one ahead of third-placed Real Madrid, who both have a game in hand. Lionel Messi put a dominant Barca in front after 26 minutes and then played a part in Pedri tapping in their second goal in the 34th after a sweeping team move.

Title rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid have the chance to open a lead over the coming days.

LISBON (Reuters) -Thousands of emotional Sporting fans shook off the pandemic blues and took over Lisbon's streets on Tuesday evening to celebrate their club being crowned Portuguese champions for the first time in nearly two decades. Ruben Amorim's side saw out the win to claim the club's 19th league title and end rivals Porto and Benfica's 19-year stranglehold on the championship. Sporting, who are still unbeaten with two games left, have 82 points after 32 matches, an unassailable eight-point advantage over second-placed Porto.

The Saints, who no longer have the threat of the drop hanging over them following Fulham's relegation on Monday, went behind in the second minute when Christian Benteke out-muscled their defence to score with a thumping left-footed shot. Ings, who had been out of action since tweaking a hamstring against Tottenham Hotspur in late April, levelled in the 19th minute, catching the Palace defence flat-footed as he controlled the ball before swivelling to fire home. Nathan Redmond upended Wilfried Zaha to concede a penalty just before the break, but Southampton keeper Fraser Forster dived smartly to his left to keep out the resulting spot kick from Luka Milivojevic.

(Reuters) -Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit, the Bob Baffert-trained horse which failed a drug test after its May 1 triumph, is eligible to compete in Saturday's Preakness Stakes, the Maryland Jockey Club said on Tuesday. If the horse's positive test for the anti-inflammatory drug betamethasone is confirmed, Churchill Downs said it will strip Medina Spirit of its Kentucky Derby win and the racetrack has already banned Baffert from entering horses there. The controversy surrounding Medina Spirit's positive test raised questions about whether the three-year-old colt would be allowed to compete in the second leg of the Triple Crown.

Hideki Matsuyama said on Tuesday that the two-week COVID-19 quarantine he underwent upon his return to Japan after his Masters triumph last month allowed him a chance to absorb the magnitude of his momentous victory. Matsuyama, making his much-anticipated return to action at this week's PGA Tour event in Texas, said being in quarantine freed him up to read probably every newspaper and magazine story about him becoming the first Japanese man to win a major. "Seeing how the Masters win was portrayed in Japan was great, really unforgettable, and that really stands out for my trip back to Japan," Matsuyama said ahead of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.

Big wins against Chelsea and Liverpool played a part.

Zack Steffen becomes first United States international to win Premier League

Yahoo Finance UK 11 May, 2021 - 02:48pm

One of them can finally lay claim to the title of champion.

Goalkeeper Zack Steffen became the first American to win the Premier League on Tuesday after Manchester City clinched the title. He appeared in one game this season, a 3-1 win over Chelsea on January 3, and mainly served as the backup to Ederson.

The closest any American had come before to winning the EPL was Tim Howard, who spent four years at Manchester United. The Red Devils didn't win the league his first three seasons there, and he was loaned to Everton in the fourth, where he signed a permanent contract during the winter transfer window in 2007. So he never played for United that campaign, which ended in the club reclaiming the league title.

Steffen is the first-choice keeper for the USMNT, and he signed with Man City two summers ago, spending the 2019-20 season on loan with Fortuna Düsseldorf in the German Bundesliga.

The 26-year-old Pennsylvania native has primarily played this season in the FA Cup and the League Cup, which are both domestic tournaments in England, making 10 total appearances and helping City win the League Cup on April 25. Steffen also started the last game of the Champions League group stage in December, a 3-0 win over Marseille.

He has a chance to become the first American male to play in the Champions League final later this month, although it's expected Ederson will start that match against Chelsea on May 29. Steffen is just one year younger than Ederson, which means continued playing time at City could be hard to come by.

Whatever his future, Steffen is already in the record books.

More than 40% of the members of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong plan to or are considering leaving the financial hub, with most citing discomfort with a sweeping national security law as one reason, a survey showed on Wednesday.

Peru's Health Ministry said Tuesday it is investigating nurses who are accused of trying to inoculate patients with empty syringes during the country's coronavirus vaccination campaign. “These three cases are fully identified, both the people and the places,” said Health Ministry spokesman Arturo Granados. Authorities haven't provided a motive for the allegedly flawed vaccinations, though President Francisco Sagasti said Tuesday that it “is something very worrisome and could even be criminal in some cases.”

Concerns have been raised over a rise in the number of children swallowing potentially harmful magnets. In a letter published in the Archives of Disease in Childhood, paediatricians from some of the top hospitals in London said that children under the age of four commonly swallow “foreign bodies” without it causing any damage. There has recently been a focus on the harms which can be caused by button batteries when swallowed, but the authors of the letter said that other objects can cause harm as well.
