Premier League table: City maintain eight-point lead ahead of Manchester derby


Matthew Upson has told Match of the Day 2, which was broadcast on BBC One on December 3rd, that he felt Declan Rice put in a brilliant performance for West Ham United against Manchester City yesterday.

The Hammers diligent, valiant performance at the Etihad could not prevent another defeat, as league leaders Manchester City secured a 2-1 comeback win with David Silva scoring another late victor for Pep Guardiola's side.

Angelo Ogbonna's opener for West Ham came directly from a corner, as did the goal that City conceded against Huddersfield last week, while Southampton troubled them from set pieces during the week.

Massive Chinese air drills warn U.S. 'not to provoke Pyongyang'
China's Air Force war gaming in the region involves surface-to-air missile forces, fighter jets and early warning aircraft. Other U.S. assets include two B-1B bombers and six Growler electronic warfare jets, as well as dozens of F-15s and F-16s.

But speaking in Tuesday's press conference ahead of City's Group F Champions League away clash against Shakhtar Donetsk, Guardiola expressed hope that the Spaniard recovers in time for the derby.

Defeat to group winners City would open the door for the Italians, who beat Shakhtar 3-0 last month and will be expected to see off Feyenoord in their last game. Our pace and pass were quicker and better. "I can promise you we are going to try to win this game".

"But you have ups and downs - what is important is that in the second half it was outstanding the way we played. But we got a point and need to look forward now".

Terrorist plot to kill British leader Theresa May reportedly foiled
The IRA had previously targeted prime minister Margaret Thatcher at the Conservative conference in Brighton in 1984. An official report into the attack released on Tuesday found opportunities to thwart it had been missed.

Pep Guardiola is considering dropping Aguero for Sunday's derby against Manchester United - believing the striker has struggled to replicate his early season form since fracturing a rib in a auto accident in September. "We were much, much better". I think he'll be watching not only our players but City's as well. The good news for Shakhtar is that they can replace Taison with Viktor Kovalenko, a really talented young midfielder who just can't get into the team because Taison, Bernard and Marlos are so good.

"I don't mind him admitting it but the fact that he booked me and can't get it rescinded, I'll miss the next game", he said.
