- Thu, 06 Oct 2022 23:01:41 +0000: Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend - Manchester City | The Guardian
Liverpool face a crunch trip to north London, Roberto De Zerbi meets Antonio Conte again and another big Monday clash
In recent years Arsenal, seemingly in constant recalibration, have reliably come off second-best to Liverpool. But the leaders will begin Sunday’s match at the Emirates 11 points clear of Jürgen Klopp’s side, albeit having played a game more, and face opponents who badly need to get on a run. Liverpool are the ones in flux, Sadio Mané’s departure appearing to have had a profound impact, and can no longer be sure of turning this season into a one-two with Manchester City. One remarkable stat is that Arsenal have not scored against Liverpool in their last six meetings across all competitions, but anyone watching Leandro Trossard plunder a hat-trick at Anfield last weekend would fear for the visitors’ defence against a rampant attack led by Gabriel Jesus. It has been well documented that second place looks up for grabs this time around: this could be the time Mikel Arteta and company begin the changing of the guard in earnest. Nick Ames

Sara Arfaoui told to branch out from ‘Instagrammable spots’ after saying city’s food was ‘horrible’
A Manchester City footballer’s wife has been told to get out more and to stop choosing restaurants on the basis of their Instagram appeal, after claiming food in her new northern English home town was “horrible” and “all frozen”.
Sara Arfaoui, an Italian model who married the Man City captain, İlkay Gündoğan, earlier this year, said in an Instagram Q&A that she had “tried so bad to find a good restaurant” but that Mancunian eateries were focused on “making money with drinks and shot[s] like a nightclub” instead of providing quality food.Continue reading...
- Thu, 06 Oct 2022 12:37:52 +0000: Kyle Walker faces World Cup fitness race after groin surgery - Manchester City | The Guardian
- Manchester City defender’s chances of being fit rated as slim
- Absence would be blow to Gareth Southgate and England
Kyle Walker has undergone groin surgery, leaving the Manchester City defender facing World Cup heartbreak. The 32-year-old suffered the injury in Sunday’s 6-3 home win over Manchester United and if it is a blow for his club it stands to be an even bigger one for Gareth Southgate and England.
Southgate will name his 26-man squad for the finals in Qatar on 10 November, although the final Fifa deadline is 14 November, meaning he would have scope for late adjustments if problems were to arise in the Premier League games on 12-13 November – the last weekend before the domestic season pauses. England kick off in Qatar against Iran on 21 November.Continue reading...

Alan Shearer, Andy Cole and Sergio Agüero will have their names replaced in the record books if Haaland keeps this up
You could say that Erling Haaland has hit the ground running. He has broken a few records already while dispelling any doubts about how quickly he would acclimatise to the rigours of the Premier League.
Haaland started slowly. He failed to make any impression in the Community Shield against Liverpool in July and was overshadowed by another debutant, Darwin Núñez, who came off the bench for Liverpool with 30 minutes remaining, won a penalty and scored a goal, prompting the feeling that he might adapt more quickly to his new environment.Continue reading...
