Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock compares Salah to Olympic diver

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock compares Salah to Olympic diver

The Manchester United players have been heavily criticised and rightly so for their performance against Everton in their league clash at the weekend.

The momentum and feel good factor built up by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first few months in charge has gone. Each of the stadiums has their own deep-rooted heritage similar to our own and we'll face three great opposition teams in Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP.

However, he is clinging to the hope that those he now has to call on will be shocked into a short-term response.

Gini Wijnaldum opened the scoring for Liverpool in the second half before James Milner sealed the win with a late penalty after Sean Morrisson fouled Salah in the box. I never saw Liverpool's glory days but even during the 90s City were never a threat, it was only probably around 2009 or 2010 that they started becoming serious rivals.

Yet, there is a dilemma even for United fans keen to halt City's rise.

After a rare setback on clay, an honest Nadal praised Fognini while admitting "everything" had gone wrong for him. It could have been an all-Serb semi but Medvedev knocked out top-ranked Novak Djokovic in Friday's quarterfinals.

Liverpool's bid to be crowned champions for the first time since 1990 rests on City dropping points in their remaining four games of the season. They are in 18th place, three points behind Brighton & Hove Albion - who they beat 2-0 last week - and have just three games left to save their skin.

He has scored 19 Premier League goals this season. Neither side is showing signs of blinking, and they have both been ruthlessly consistent in recent weeks, with Liverpool staying alive and keeping pace with City by winning their past six league games.

"I love my team being there", added Guardiola. "We've still got some tough games ourselves, and we have to win those and keep the pressure up". He also added that dry pitches can be unsafe for players as can cause injuries but that they were prepared as they trained on a dry pitch to get used to it before heading to Wales. We have to want to overtake them, not because it's City and Liverpool. And when people expect them to do it, it's harder to do it.

City gained a small measure of revenge on Spurs with a 1-0 league win on Saturday, but victory came at a cost with Kevin de Bruyne unlikely to play again this season due to a hamstring injury.
