Manchester City to return to United States for pre-season games

Manchester City to return to United States for pre-season games

Jose Mourinho admits Manchester City are uncatchable in the Premier League title race but remains desperate to finish ahead of the chasing pack.

City had dominated possession throughout most of the game, which they strolled through for large spells, but after taking the lead with a handsome strike from Brazilian Danilo in the 22nd minute, they failed to press home their advantage.

Mourinho will hope his players can pick themselves up on Saturday when they welcome Huddersfield on what will be an emotional occasion at Old Trafford marking the 60th anniversary of the 1958 Munich air disaster.

Guardiola's options have been depleted by injury, but vast sums have been invested by the Premier League leaders in bringing through potential stars of tomorrow. I thought we handled every game against Burnley so far well. We have one goalkeeper and five players.

He added: "I don't think the news is very good, he has a problem in his knee, it is the same knee but not the same locality - it was internal, now external, so let's wait a couple of more days". I'm not sure why he is peddling this theme. He's an absolutely incredible manager, the work that he has done with this team is unbelievable, and the team performance is absolutely outstanding, it really is. But things like that let you down, he doesn't need to do that.

Raheem Sterling has taken his game to the next level this season under Pep Guardiola. That may haven't been the case this time around, but Sean Dyche's men are going to make life hard for City, without a question.

Last year, when Trump addressed his first joint session of Congress, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin filled the position. According to the Senate Historical Office, the practice dates to at least the early 1960s "and perhaps much earlier".


"In the second-half I decided to make a change and bring (Marouane) Fellaini with different qualities than him, to try to be stronger in midfield with Fellaini and (Nemanja) Matic because I wanted Alexis to play as a second striker with (Romelu) Lukaku". And I can guarantee you the youth team coach and reserve team coach at Man City will feel disheartened by him having six players on the bench.

Influential midfielder, Steven Defour, requires knee surgery and may not play again this season so he joins Tom Heaton on the long-term injury list and it's no coincidence that the Clarets haven't won since Stephen Ward picked up an injury in the 1-0 win over Stoke in December.

However perhaps for the first time this season Guardiola was being roundly criticised. "The quality was on show and it was a fantastic goal, so overall a odd kind of game which you can have against these because they're so dominant with the ball so I'm very very pleased to come away with a point".
