Hoffenheim v Manchester City

Adjust Comment Print

Aguero tried his luck again, a curling effort towards the top corner well saved by Oliver Baumann, before City's Fernandinho was booked for a foul as Hoffenheim mounted a foray forward.

Leroy Sané has overcome a hard period of his young career that saw him left out of Germany's World Cup squad, then apparently fall out of favour at Manchester City in the early weeks of the season. In the last two seasons we qualified quite comfortably.

"Under normal circumstances, this would be a banker home win for United, but these are worrying times at Old Trafford and I fancy the La Liga side might pick up a point in a low-scoring affair".

They have also failed to score in seven of these games, but perhaps, more worryingly for City fans, they have never kept a clean sheet in any of their 21 Premier League visits to Liverpool.

"I want to be on the bench with my players in the next game - on the bench".

Ishak Belfodil netted an early opener as he ran onto a good ball from Kerem Demirbay and slotted past Emerson, before Sergio Aguero levelled matters a few minutes later.

City beat Brighton 2-0 over the weekend with goals from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.

But it's not all doom and gloom for City, though.

Manchester City boss Guardiola never faced Nagelsmann during his time in the Bundesliga, with the latter taking over at Hoffenheim in February 2016 - just a couple of weeks after Bayern Munich had beaten them at the Allianz Arena. However one of their two defeats was against Liverpool at Anfield in January.

"We knew we had 15 points to fight for and we now have three".

First up on Super Sunday we go to St Mary's as Southampton take on Chelsea, where the Blues dramatically won 3-2 last season.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that 2018 World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe has emerged as a January transfer target for Premier League champions Manchester City.
