Man City stagnation hits home in season of underachievement

Substitute Fernandinho struck a late winner as Manchester City killed off an Aston Villa comeback to claim a frantic 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

On Monday morning, Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City sit in second place in the Premier League table -- level on points with Arsenal but ahead on goal difference, albeit one game behind. After seeing off Aston Villa 3-2 at the weekend, just, the Chilean was then widely quoted as saying: "It is no shame if City finish second."

Indeed, City have spent the majority of the season in second. Even during a brief spell at Christmas when they caught leaders Chelsea and -- with identical points, goal difference...

MANCHESTER, England -- Three observations from the Etihad where Manchester City emerged victorious 3-2 over Aston Villa in an error-prone affair.

1. City win calamitous game

Four goalkeeping errors, and the winner scored after abject failure to clear a corner. This was no game for defensive purists. Jose Mourinho should scoff at the organisational chaos on show.

Fernandinho's acrobatic winner put Manchester City within two wins of reaching next season's Champions League, while Aston Villa...

Chelsea and Man City players to watch during FA Youth Cup final second leg

Boga's drive and dynamism makes him one of Chelsea's biggest up and coming stars.

Chelsea will be confident of defending their 3-1 first leg advantage when they take on Manchester City in the return leg of the 2015 FA Youth Cup final at Stamford Bridge on Monday. Here are three players to look out for from each side ahead of what is likely to be an entertaining encounter.

Premier League's best court Gareth Bale, more on Memphis Depay's future

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves deeper into reported Manchester United targets Memphis Depay and Ilkay Gundogan.

The rumours are gaining steam and, in many instances, credibility. It's the sweet spot for Transfer Talk, where anything is possible as the summer window nears.

Bale, Reus and Hummels in the balance?

Louis van Gaal's noncommittal response to questions regarding Memphis Depay could, of course, be because he has his eyes on a bigger prize: Gareth Bale. United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all lining up £75 million bids for the Real Madrid star, according to the Mail. The paper reports...

Fernandinho bails out an otherwise lacklustre Man City against Aston Villa

Substitute Fernandinho struck a late winner as Manchester City killed off an Aston Villa comeback to claim a frantic 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

If ever there was a game that summed up what's been wrong with Manchester City this season, it was their 3-2 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday. The club somehow came away with all of the points despite looking second best for the most part, as Tim Sherwood's visiting side pressed and the hosts looked like they'd buckle.

In truth, Manuel Pellegrini's team hasn't had too many answers when put under pressure this campaign and that they threw away a two-goal lead came more as a damning inevitability...

Villa deserve their day in FA Cup sun, but City must be ruthless

Napoli manager Rafael Benitez says he's fully focused on doing well with the club, and denies any offer from Manchester City.

When Aston Villa fans emptied out onto the Villa Park pitch in celebration after an unexceptional FA Cup quarterfinal defeat of local rivals West Brom, some laughed at their over-exuberance. When the same Villa side then disposed of favourites Liverpool in the semifinals to seal a place in the Wembley final, the watching world continued to poke fun as some of their fans burst into spontaneous fits of tears.

But Man City fans know exactly how they are feeling in Birmingham at the moment. Their own...
