Manchester United, Manchester City 'to battle it out for Harry Maguire'


Manchester City is lucky to have star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, according to team-mate Sergio Aguero. "The most important thing for me is to keep Riyad, the club and the fans united and in a good way".

Despite returning to training with Leicester on Friday, meanwhile, Mahrez will not be considered for the squad for Saturday's Premier League clash with City at the Etihad Stadium. Often from set play, the Leicester City man is known for making his physical presence known; a trait which has secured him two goals and four assists this season.

Roma, who pursued Mahrez last summer, continue to have an interest in the player, but not at the price that Leicester quoted City last week.

Guardiola had mentioned that he didn't name any youth prospects on the bench as they played a game just 24 hours before on the Friday and that he didn't want to deprive any of the young players of game time.

"He needs to jump to a big club and I don't think he's going to be in this situation too long", the manager stated.

After failing to land Riyad Mahrez in January, Manchester City haven't given up talks with Leicester City.

That angered Mahrez and his response was to refuse to come in for training or play any games for the side.

Raheem Sterling got proceedings underway inside three minutes, and while Leicester were level for almost 25 minutes, there were two undoubted stars of the show.

The BBC reported the Premier League leaders have cited nine challenges they feel have not been sufficiently punished by referees in recent months to Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL).

Earlier, Kane's towering header four minutes into the second half earned Spurs a deserved derby win, as only some wayward finishing and stunning goalkeeping from Petr Cech saved Arsenal from further embarrassment in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222 at Wembley. "Apart from one or two players, they are mainly the same".

Under-fire Sam Allardyce's side have dramatically tailed off, winning just one of their last eight games, while Roy Hodgson has inspired the Eagles to resurgence since being parachuted in.

But the City boss insisted that he genuinely didn't have enough players and couldn't call on reinforcements from the lower teams. The best way is for him to come back and enjoy his football.
