Manchester City

A novel idea to solve Manchester City's striker crisis: Play without a striker

Sergio Aguero's injury has left Manchester City with a problem in attack ahead of the busy Christmas period.

As Manchester City head into a hectic run of fixtures over Christmas with no strikers available, conjecture mounts as to what they will do about it. With precious little on offer until the transfer window opens, City have little time to prepare their strategy before the games come thick and fast.

While my colleague David Mooney has put forward the unlikely credentials of Scott Sinclair, it's fair to say Manuel Pellegrini is unlikely to put his faith in the forgotten man.

In all probability, Pellegrini...

Forgotten man Scott Sinclair could be worth a gamble at Manchester City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was left to rue injuries to captain Vincent Kompany and Edin Dzeko, adding a sour note to their 1-0 win at Leicester in the Premier League.

In the aftermath of Manchester City's 1-0 victory over Leicester last Saturday, boss Manuel Pellegrini didn't face too many questions about the performance or the game itself. In fact, in his postmatch news conference, discussion of the fixture took up something in the region of one or two minutes and nothing more.

It was pretty much a sideshow to the bigger issue that faces the Blues ahead of one of the busiest periods of the season.

After Edin Dzeko limped out of the warm-up, the manager was left...

Sergio Aguero should be back for Man City in January, says Manuel Pellegrini

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Stuart Holden examine Manchester City's chances of getting revenge against Barcelona in their Round of 16 Champions League tie.

Manuel Pellegrini is optimistic Sergio Aguero will be fit to return to the Manchester City team in January.

The City manager first feared Aguero, 26, could be ruled out for up to eight weeks after he suffered a knee ligament injury in the 1-0 win over Everton on Dec. 6, which would have kept him sidelined until February.

However, he has now suggested that the Argentina international is making a swift recovery and could be in contention to feature in the return game against Everton on Jan. 10 or the...

Bacary Sagna: I can step in for Vincent Kompany at Manchester City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was left to rue injuries to captain Vincent Kompany and Edin Dzeko, adding a sour note to their 1-0 win at Leicester in the Premier League.

Bacary Sagna has volunteered to fill the void left by injured captain Vincent Kompany in the centre of the Manchester City defence.

Belgium international Kompany limped off during Saturday's 1-0 victory at Leicester with a hamstring problem, and City are waiting to discover when their skipper will be able to return.

Eliaquim Mangala and Martin Demichelis, Kompany's two regular partners, are likely to be chosen as the centre-back duo in the Premier League match at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Manchester City's problems and reasons for festive cheer

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Stuart Holden examine Manchester City's chances of getting revenge against Barcelona in their Round of 16 Champions League tie.

With the enticing prospect of a two-game rematch with "old foes" Barcelona in the Champions League to look forward to, Blues fans can now start the run-up to the New Year in earnest.

There are a host of Premier League points on offer during the Christmas period, so what positives can City take from the season so far? And what might put a spanner in the works before the dreams of the fans can be realised?

As usual -- and entirely understandable if you follow Manchester City -- we start with the problems:
