Alexis Sanchez to Man City off? Pep Guardiola plays down transfer talk

Alexis Sanchez to Man City off? Pep Guardiola plays down transfer talk

Ederson turned out to be Manchester City's saviour on New Year's eve with his stoppage time penalty save as Manchester City drew 0-0 with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

I admire Roy, at 70, to have the energy to put in front of the players, to have the adrenalin to know what's going to happen.

In the resulting break, Kevin De Bruyne was hacked down by Jason Puncheon.

"In two days, we have another game".

City won't play in the UEFA Champions League until February, so Gabriel Jesus could be back for that, but between now and then they will want to finish their title run off as soon as possible and keep on tearing the PL apart instead of worrying about losing one of Sterling, Sane or Aguero or tiring them out. "But now Alexis is an Arsenal player".

Afterwards Pep Guardiola said: "Gabriel Jesus is injured, he will be out for maybe one month or two months".

Guardiola added that he wants to see players better protected by referees.

"We were lucky (with challenges) in previous games".

"We were lucky against Tottenham, with Kevin, we were lucky against Newcastle, (with Ilkay) Gundogan; today we will see what happens".

With City 14 points clear atop the Premier League table, do they really need another attacking player for a few months? "Protect all the players please from situations that are unsafe". Maybe Arsene (Wenger) is anxious about that but I tell him many times that 2004 run is for him.

Despite those and seeing his team waste the chance to secure victory by missing a late penalty for the second time this month, Roy Hodgson insisted he took significant satisfaction from the draw. Why would you protect just the players we like the most?
