Press Association Mark Hughes suggested Manchester City may have paid the price for taking Stoke too lightly after the Potters frustrated Manuel Pellegrini’s men at the Britannia Stadium. Hughes said: “In terms of chances created I thought we certainly had the better of those. “It was probably the only thing missing from our performance, the ability to covert a chance. We created enough of them. “But overall we are happy with our performance. If we keep our performance at that level we will have a good season. “Our performances have improved steadily as the season has gone on. “It is still early days, so we have got to maintain it but we have got a lot of confidence because what we are trying is working.” Hughes refused to criticise Walters, who glanced his headed chance wide after being picked out by a fine cross from the superb Charlie Adam. He said: “I’ve been a striker, I have been in those situations – do you let the ball just hit your head or do you try to guide it? “Sometimes they come off, other times they don’t. “Unfortunately it just went past the far post but I thought Jon was great today. He put in a real shift for us and was unlucky.” Pellegrini tried to paint the result in a positive light for City. Since opening the season with an emphatic victory over Newcastle, City have been unconvincing but Pellegrini claimed to be pleased with the point. The Chilean said said: “I am not disappointed with the performance but we didn’t have many chances to score. “When you play away and you can’t win at least you must not lose. “We didn’t have the players to work much, they were all with their national squad and we had four or five injuries. “We have a complete back four out, [David] Silva out and we have the Champions League next Tuesday so I think it is a good point for us.” Pellegrini was unhappy with the suggestion that after spending more than £90million over the summer City should always be expected to win. He said: “I don’t think you must expect to win every match. “Of course we want to win every game but it is impossible to do it. “I will not always be happy when we draw away but for this match I think it was a good draw. “I don’t believe because we made changes we didn’t play well. “Stoke also played a good match and that is also why we didn’t have clear chances to score.” Pellegrini was forced to settle for a goalless draw after a City side showing six changes failed to impose themselves in their latest Barclays Premier League outing. Stoke even had the better of the game and went closest to scoring when Jonathan Walters headed a good chance wide and Joe Hart produced a good save to prevent a Matija Nastasic own goal. Stoke manager Hughes said: “I think we are disappointed we haven’t won, so that’s an illustration of how we feel the game went. “City have got big games coming up, it is a busy period. Maybe they picked a team they felt could win against us, given the Champions League game in midweek. “Maybe they prioritised the wrong game. “They have got a huge squad and you have to use your resources in the right way and get the combination right. “That is the balance you have to make when you have got riches like Man City have. “They didn’t quite get that right before the game. That probably helped us, looking at the teamsheet.” Stoke have made an encouraging start under Hughes, having performed well in defeat at Liverpool in the opening game and then beaten Crystal Palace and West Ham prior to City’s visit. Hughes is trying to change perceptions of Stoke as a physical and direct team and his influence was evident as they played the better football throughout. read more

For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Liverpool can extend their lead over Manchester City to seven points.Liverpool take on Leicester City, the 2015/16 Champions.Sergio Aguero scored his 100th goal in the Premier League. Newcastle: Manchester City handed the advantage firmly to Liverpool in the Premier League title race as they surrendered the lead in a stunning 2-1 loss away to Newcastle United on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola’s second-placed side looked likely to keep the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s leaders as Sergio Aguero got them off to an ideal start in the Spaniard’s 100th league game in charge by scoring the fastest goal of the season just seconds into the action at St James’ Park. But Newcastle staged an unlikely comeback to ease their relegation fears thanks to Salomon Rondon’s 66th-minute equaliser, the first goal City had conceded for more than 10 hours, before Matt Ritchie struck the winner from the penalty spot with 10 minutes remaining after Fernandinho’s foul on youngster Sean Longstaff. It means Liverpool, who could have been only a point ahead of their main rivals on their return to action, can extend their lead at the top to an imposing seven points with victory over Leicester at Anfield on Wednesday. Such a scenario looked unlikely when Aguero continued his amazing scoring record against the Tyneside club with his 15th goal in 13 games against the Magpies, more than any player has scored against an opponent for a single club in the Premier League. Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez made no apologies for setting out to ‘park the bus’ against free-scoring opponents, even at home, but the Spaniard’s plans to frustrate Guardiola’s side were left in tatters when the visitors took the lead with their first attack. United failed to deal with Raheem Sterling’s centre from the right, and although David Silva slipped as he met the cross at the far post, the midfielder did enough to redirect the ball into the path of the lurking Aguero, who found the net for the third successive match with a close-range finish past goalkeeper Martin Dubravka when there were just 24 seconds on the clock.The Argentina international was denied a second inside opening 20 minutes when he deftly glanced home Kevin De Bruyne quickly-taken free-kick, only for play to be brought back as the midfielder was cautioned for curling in the set-piece before referee Paul Tierney had signalled play could recommence. Thankless task Belgium star De Bruyne was fortunate not to earn a second yellow card on the hour when clumsily fouling Ritchie as City’s evening began to unravel. Silva, who posed a constant threat, saw a close-range header cleared off the line by Fabian Schar as City pushed for a decisive second goal, which should have arrived when Sterling failed to make sufficient connection to a Leroy Sane cross shortly after the re-start. Rondon stuck to his largely thankless task as Newcastle’s lone forward, and was rewarded for his efforts with the leveller midway through the second period. City failed to deal with Ritchie’s cross, Isaac Hayden heading the ball back into the box to allow Rondon to strike with a firm volley past a stranded Ederson. Worse was to follow for a City side that had won their previous seven games, as Newcastle sealed a first league victory against the reigning English champions since 2005. The usually reliable Fernandinho was at fault as the Brazilian fouled Longstaff after being dispossessed in the area by the Newcastle midfielder. Ritchie kept his composure after lengthy treatment for an injury to Ederson, finding the net despite the Brazilian getting a hand to the Scotland international’s spot-kick to seal a memorable night for the hosts. highlights read more

By Fisayo DairoThere is this compelling belief that the joy of claiming the bragging rights in a local derby is most felt by indigenous players of the victorious side. To such, appearance in the derby alone comes with the glowing pride of defending their team’s colours in front of friends and family members, usually on a stage they used to be as a spectator in the past, but now as one of the actors and how much more ending on the winning side on the day?For Plateau United utility star Benjamin Turba, the quest for more knowledge and education as well as careful planning towards a better future motivated him to join the newly promoted side from El-Kanemi Warriors before the start of the season. But a little much more is the temptation of going back to his beloved town of birth, Jos and also a likely participation in league derbies against privately-owned Giwa FC. His aspirations could not have been actualized more earlier than this. Turba could not have hoped for a better time to open his goalscoring account for Plateau United and establish himself as a Jos cult hero than the Match Day 11 clash with Giwa FC at the famous Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos. He broke the resistance of the Giwa Elephants after over an hour of tenacious hostilities with a fine goal right in front of thousands of spectators including his childhood playmates and family members.“Scoring in the derby means a lot to me,” the former Enyimba midfielder told www.npfl.ng“It’s like one defending his family because all my family members and some of my friends while growing up were all there at the stadium.” added TurbaAfter a two-year stint in Maiduguri with El-Kanemi despite the growing security concerns, Turba found a return home a perfect move for him as it well aligns with his ambitions.“I was planning to enroll on a diploma programme since I’m still playing in the country. And all thanks to God Almighty, my state team got promoted to the Premier League. I was so happy and so came home to play and school.” he enthusiastically explained.The easy-going star has since begun his Diploma programme in Psychology at the Plateau State Polytechnic in Jos, effectively combining schooling with playing in Nigeria’s elite league. Born in the heart of Jos principality, one experience that this soon-to-be husband will not forget his is experience in Maiduguri while playing for the Warriors between late 2014 and early 2016. It was however not as fearful as many have always thought.“It wasn’t easy (the stay in Maiduguri) but the state government was solidly behind the team so our safety was assured despite all the problems. We were based in the capital city while traveling for our home and away games.” he recalled.The widely travelled attacking midfielder who can also play in attack was an integral part of the star-studded Kaduna United side that won the FA Cup in 2010 and also Enyimba in 2012 and for one that has tasted success before, he retains the hope that Plateau United will be a success story.“Our fans are expecting a lot from th e team, not just to remain in the Premier League but to bring something to the state. So we are working hard to make sure we deliver nothing less than a continental ticket. This I also help the team to achieve as my personal ticket.” he loftily concluded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram read more
