Twitter explodes as Aguero's quadruple helps Manchester City destroy Leicester 5-1

Twitter explodes as Aguero's quadruple helps Manchester City destroy Leicester 5-1

Riyad Mahrez ended a 10-day standoff with Leicester City on Friday by training with his team mates ahead of Saturday's Premier League match at Manchester City.

Despite a second transfer request from Mahrez in eight months, Leicester reportedly held out for a deal worth £80 million ($112 million, 91 million euros), with even City's cash-rich Abu Dhabi owners unwilling to go beyond a reported £50 million plus an unnamed player they valued at £15 million. Get the app and get the game. "It is important he comes back".

Most importantly, Mahrez has detailed his explanation for going on strike at the club.

Mahrez, 26, has not even trained with the mid-table Foxes since his dream move to the Premier League leaders collapsed.

The Catalan coach's decision brought some stinging criticism, particularly from Sky pundit and former Manchester United captain Gary Neville, who believed Guardiola should have offered the chance of a matchday experience on the bench to one of City's many talented academy prospects.

"My goals have always been the same and I have always given my full 100 percent when I play for the club the fans and my teammates". I am happy for him as well.

Defender John Stones and midfielder Phil Foden are both available again following spells on the sidelines.

"We will have 18 players tomorrow, so Gary Neville can be happy", added Guardiola.

Is this the end for John Kelly?
Trump, for his part, has repeatedly defended Porter without expressing sympathy toward domestic violence victims in the past week. No action was taken to remove him from the staff, and instead, Kelly and others oversaw an elevation in Porter's standing.

Sergio Aguero was at his supreme best as his four goals, all coming in the second half, helped City to a rather comfortable win after it was all square at 1-1 with everything to play for at the end of the first half.

He said: "We will see". If we win, it's good, and if not then people will ask why did we do it.

"We've had a lot of games since August, with just one midweek off".

He said: "I would like to give him a rest sometimes but he's the only striker that we have". We have had three training sessions and we are ready to come back now.

"He has maintained good fitness to come back quickly".

Puel had said on Thursday that Mahrez would not play at the Etihad Stadium but named him on the bench and brought him on with almost half an hour to play, although it was to no avail as the Foxes were heavily beaten - although Jamie Vardy was our early victor.
