Three Players Bound To Leave If Man City’s Champions’ League Ban is Upheld

Players Bound to Leave Man City

Manchester City had to endure a big hit when it was made known that UEFA is looking to ban the club from the Champions League for two years. We are yet to see how this saga will unfold and whether Guardiola’s team will actually receive an effective punishment. How ever this all pans out, though, it’s certain that at least a few players are already looking to move on. Liverpool has established itself as a huge hegemon on the domestic scene and if the access to the top European club…

Southampton vs Manchester City – Betting Tips and Predictions

Southampton will put an end to a remarkable season with a home game against Manchester City on Sunday. The Saints have engineered a miraculous escape from relegation in last few weeks, and we expect an upbeat atmosphere at St Mary’s Stadium.

Manchester City vs Swansea City – Betting Tips and Predictions

Reports: Manchester City to once again break the bank in the summer

Manchester City spent an astronomical amount of money on signings last summer. The impact of a fruitful summer was obvious for everyone as the Citizens comfortably lifted the Premier League title this week. Under the current ownership, City have won three league titles, but European success has eluded them. Pep Guardiola was signed to fix that, but the Spaniard too has failed in first two attempts. However, City’s ownership hasn’t given up on the Spaniard, and they are prepared to bankroll another busy summer for their manager. According to the…
