Manchester City

Fragile champions Manchester City to be dethroned before trip to Tottenham

The ESPN FC panel assess whether or not the SPI is correct to favour Manchester City over Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

When it comes to hoodoos, Tottenham used to be able to boast one of the biggest over Manchester City.

For years, any fan in blue travelling down to White Hart Lane could tell the story of the game before it kicked off. It'd be dominated by the home side and the visitors would roll over and concede defeat, usually by a 2-1 scoreline.

For a long time, City's away losses to Spurs were shocking: At one point they had just one win in 14 top flight visits to north London. Kevin Keegan's 2003 triumph was...

Frank Lampard's extended Manchester City stay has proved to be a disaster

The ESPN FC panel assess whether or not the SPI is correct to favour Manchester City over Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard and Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard were honoured to receive Merit awards by the PFA for their stellar careers.
Frank Lampard has been a bit player for Manuel Pellegrini since the start of the year.

When the news was announced on New Year's Eve, it arrived as little surprise: Frank Lampard would be staying on as a Manchester City player after all. As 2015 began, a Lampard winner against Sunderland took City dead-level at the top of the Premier League with Chelsea on points, goal difference and goals scored.

As a footballing decision, keeping the 36-year-old until the end of the season paid instant dividends. What soon followed, though, registered as a significant reverse to the umbrella...

Barcelona join Paul Pogba fray, Yaya Toure closer to Inter Milan move

ESPN FC's Craig Burley presents his worst Premier League transfers this season, highlighted by Falcao and Angel Di Maria for Manchester United and the forwards of Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli for Liverpool.

The rumours are gaining momentum and, in many instances, credibility. Transfer Talk has the latest news as the summer window nears.

Pogba to Barcelona, it's complicated

With just about every team on the planet expressing some kind of interest in Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, why shouldn't Barcelona join the fray? Well, a pesky transfer ban that prohibits them from any activity until 2016 for one.

Transfer ban be damned, there are ways, according to quotes from Barcelona sporting director...

Three years on from beating United to the title, City are limp and gutless

After a run of six defeats in eight games Manchester City have stopped the rot with two wins on the spin against West Ham and Aston Villa.
Vincent Kompany headed home as Manchester City beat Manchester United 1-0 in 2012.

Exactly three years ago, Manchester City's Vincent Kompany headed home David Silva's corner to defeat Manchester United 1-0, taking a giant stride to the 2011-12 Premier League title in the process.

There's enough contrast with that moment and this season to make your eyes water. Firstly, City have not had a properly fit captain to rely upon for months. Secondly, scoring from a corner has become a long-playing joke among City supporters. These two items of peripheral interest are, of course, just...

Time for Stevan Jovetic to move on after failing to shine at Man City

Stevan Jovetic has never been able to match his performance against Liverpool.

The final nail was probably slammed into the coffin of Stevan Jovetic's Manchester City career when he was excluded from the club's Champions League squad in order to make way for January signing Wilfried Bony. The Montenegro striker said the decision "killed" him and that it was an indication that manager Manuel Pellegrini had put other players ahead of him in the pecking order.

It's hard to argue otherwise, though it's also worth noting that Pellegrini probably already had Jovetic quite low down...

Man City to offer £30 million for Jack Wilshere, Bebe's return to England

The ESPN FC team discuss who, if anyone, can challenge Chelsea for the Premier League title next season. Ian Darke believes Arsenal may be best fit to challenge.

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

Citizens circling

Despite Arsene Wenger's best efforts to quash any sort of speculation that Jack Wilshere will be swapping the Emirates for the Etihad this summer, talk of a move will not go away.

The Mirror reports that Manchester City are desperate to add more homegrown talent to their squad and are preparing a £30 million...
