Pep Guardiola insists he will adopt a game by game mentality as Manchester City continue to sweep all before them. The Spaniard has overseen 10 successive victories this season, including six Premier League wins, and he is already closing in on records. Guardiola has equalled former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti’s record of winning their first six Premier League games, while victory over Champions League opponents Celtic on Wednesday – and then Spurs at White Hart Lane next weekend – would set a new Manchester City record of 12 consecutive wins.
Pep Guardiola could find himself in court over his treatment of Yaya Toure . Toure has been told he will not play for Manchester City again unless his agent apologises for comments he about the way Guardiola axed the Ivorian from his Champions League squad. But while Toure’s outspoken adviser, Dimitri Seluk, has been scathing of the Catalan’s decision to ditch the 33-year-old from his Euro plans, the player himself has kept his counsel. And Seluk believes City are in breach of contract by standing by Guardiola’s banishment of the midfielder from his first-team squad.
Manchester City won the Women’s Super League title for the first time, with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea Ladies confirming them as champions. Unbeaten City just needed to avoid defeat to guarantee top spot. Chelsea captain Katie Chapman, under pressure from Jill Scott, diverted Toni Duggan’s corner into her own net 12 minutes before half-time. Duggan added the second from the penalty spot after full-back Lucy Bronze was fouled by Gilly Flaherty. City’s victory – in front of a crowd of more than 4,000 – took them 10 points clear of second-placed Chelsea, who will secure Champions League qualification if they take two points from their final two WSL games.
The Rangers International FC of Enugu this evening defeated Ikorodu United 2 – 1 at the MKO Abiola in Abeokuta to move closer to lifting the Nigerian League trophy after 34 years. The Flying Antelopes (as Enugu Rangers are also known) dominated the game and was almost finishing the game 2 – 0 until Ikorodu scored a late consolation goal. As things stand, a draw in Enugu in the final game of the season next Sunday will do the job for Enugu Rangers – the darling club of the Igbos. All roads lead to Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium Enugu, Nigeria next Sunday the 2nd of October to witness the history that would be made. Continue to see today’s results.
