Pep Guardiola: Man City boss says Blues chiefs have told him club will not be banned

Pep Guardiola: Man City boss says Blues chiefs have told him club will not be banned

 Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he has been assured by senior figures at the club that they will not be banned from European competition for Financial Fair Play irregularities.

A series of allegations were made in Der Spiegel last month after what City said were "leaks" and an "organised attempt" to smear the club were passed on by the Football Leaks organisation.

Reports this week suggested the claims could lead to City being banned should Uefa decide to take action, and a senior figure in European football told the BBC the entire credibility of FFP is at risk if Europe's governing body and the Premier League do not fully investigate the allegations.

However, after speaking to City chairman Khaldoon al-Mubarak and chief executive Ferran Soriano, Guardiola does not think the club have anything to fear.


Juve pull eight points clear as Napoli held by lowly Chievo

Juve pull eight points clear as Napoli held by lowly Chievo

Milan (AFP) - Juventus’ bid for an eighth consecutive Serie A title were boosted on Saturday after title-chasing Napoli’s ambitions took a knock with a goalless draw against bottom club Chievo.

Carlo Ancelotti’s second-placed side needed a win to maintain the six-point gap between them and leaders Juventus, but could not find a way past Chievo in the Stadio San Paulo just days before they host Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Napoli are now eight points behind Juventus, who beat SPAL 2-0 on Saturday with goals from in-form Cristiano Ronaldo and Mario Mandzukic.

“There’s no point looking at the Serie A table now. We’ll look and evaluate at the halfway point,” said Ancelotti.

Inter Milan are a further point back in third following their comfortable 3-0 win over second-from-bottom Frosinone.

Joaquin Correa snatched a last-gasp 1-1 draw with AC Milan for Lazio as both teams lost ground on the top three. The club from the capital are fourth but five points behind Inter, whose local rivals Milan are a further point back in fifth.

Ancelotti’s side were frustrated by the side from Verona, who were playing their first game under new coach Domenico Di Carlo. He is their third manager this season after Lorenzo D’Anna was sacked in October and before him, former Italy boss Gian Piero Ventura, who quit after just four games.

“We were too bland in everything we did today – in construction, ball recovery and finishing, which allowed Chievo to play a defensive game,” Ancelotti said.

“But it was a good test ahead of Wednesday’s match against the Red Star. The tactical theme against Red Star will be the same.”

Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino pulled off some fine saves, but was largely helped by Napoli’s wastefulness in front of goal.

A curling shot from Lorenzo Insigne hit the post after 75 minutes and towering Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly missed a chance to snatch a late winner when his overhead kick from a corner shot flew just wide.

“We’ve rediscovered the Chievo spirit,” said Di Carlo, whose side now have one point from 13 games after being deducted three for false accounting.

Correa came off the bench to slot home for Lazio four minutes into added time and cancel out Franck Kessie’s deflected 78th-minute opener.

Lazio had dominated the game in the Stadio Olimpico with Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma denying Ciro Immobile and Brazilian Wallace as the visitors struggled in the absence of suspended Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic netted after 28 minutes but it was ruled offside.

Milan thought they had grabbed the three points when they broke through 12 minutes from time, Kessie beating Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha with a shot which took a deflection off Wallace.

But Lazio stole a point in the final attack with Correa volleying a low angled shot past Donnarumma.

Mid-table Sampdoria held city rivals Genoa 1-1 in the first derby since the bridge disaster which killed 43 in August.

Juve pull eight points clear as Napoli held by lowly Chievo

Fabio Quagliarella headed in for Sampdoria after eight minutes before Poland’s Krzysztof Piatek equalised from the spot on 17 minutes, to overtake Ronaldo at the top of the Serie A scorers’ list with ten goals.

Earlier Parma, back in Serie A this season for the first time since 2015 after three straight promotions, beat Sassuolo 2-1 to overtake their local rivals in the table and move into the Europa League places in sixth with 20 points.

Gervinho opened the scoring at the Stadio Tardini, with Bruno Alves adding a second after 25 minutes.

Khouma Babacar pulled one back for Sassuolo from the spot after 36 minutes.

Empoli came from two goals down to end Atalanta’s four-match winning streak with a last-gasp 3-2 win which moves them out of the relegation zone at the expense of Bologna, who held Fiorentina 0-0.

Tide defense powers team to victory, shuts out LSU at Tiger Stadium

LSU asked for all the smoke, and boy did it get it.

Alabama rendered the Tigers’ pedestrian offense scoreless, while allowing it to total 196 yards on 60 plays from scrimmage. Quarterback Joe Burrow was in fear for his life all game long, especially with Quinnen Williams, Isaiah Buggs, Christian Miller and Anfernee Jennings in his face.

He was sacked five times, with two of them coming via Williams.

With quite a few National Football League scouts in attendance at Tiger Stadium, the Birmingham native is looking like a concrete first-round pick for next year’s draft.

Williams, a redshirt sophomore, is now at four sacks and 12 tackles for loss (team-high) through nine regular season games. He led the Crimson Tide’s charge in tackles with 10, while Dylan Moses finished with six stops – including a shared tackle for loss. The duo of cornerbacks Saivion Smith and Shyheim Carter came up huge for Alabama, as both had five tackles each.

In his return to Death Valley, Smith recorded two pass breakups.

Despite him not recording a sack of Burrow, junior defensive end Raekown Davis constantly brought pressure and was one of three players to have at least four tackles. Junior inside linebacker Mack Wilson, who suffered an injury last year against the Tigers, posted four tackles and sealed the game with an interception.

While its offense generated 576 yards, the Tide’s defense proved it is still college football’s gold standard.

Alabama will return home next week for the first time in a month to face Mississippi State, following its 29-0 win over the Tigers.

Juventus v Cagliari 3-1 Dybala and Ronaldo inspire Juventus win

Juventus v Cagliari 3-1

Juventus v Cagliari 3-1 Dybala and Ronaldo inspire Juventus win
Paulo Dybala scored after 44 seconds for Juventus but they were made to struggle in a 3-1 win over a brave Cagliari team as they stayed six points clear in Serie A on Saturday. 

Juventus have now won 10 of their 11 league games but they needed the help of an own goal by Filip Bradaric after Joao Pedro had equalised for Cagliari. 

Dybala gave Juve the perfect start when he received a pass on the edge of the penalty area, twisted one way and then the other and, despite slipping as he struck the ball, scored with a right-foot shot past Alessio Cragno. 

Cagliari fought back and, after having a penalty appeal for handball turned down following a VAR review, forced Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny into a point-blank save to block a Leonardo Pavoletti volley.

The Sardinian side deservedly levelled in the 36th minute when Joao Pedro controlled Darijo Srna's cross with an excellent first touch before beating Szczesny with a low drive. But Juve were gifted a goal less than two minutes later by Bradaric who, under no immediate pressure, slid in and diverted Douglas Costa's low cross into the net. 

Cristiano Ronaldo, who hit the post on the stroke of halftime, laid the third on a plate for Juan Cuadrado with three minutes left after Cagliari were exposed on the counter-attack. 

Juve have 31 points out of a possible 33 with Inter Milan, who beat Genoa 5-0 earlier on Saturday, and Napoli, 5-1 winners over Empoli on Friday, both on 25.

Royal Bank of Scotland lifts profits, cautious on outlook

RBS reported stronger third quarter earnsing but said the outlook was more uncertain as Brexit early next year looms on the horizon

London (AFP) - Royal Bank of Scotland on Friday announced a 14-percent rise in quarterly net profit but warned of a “more uncertain outlook” as Britain’s struggles to strike a Brexit deal.

Profit after tax rose to £448 million ($574 million, 505 million euros) in the third quarter to September compared to the same period in 2017, RBS said as it continues to recover after a record government bailout a decade ago at the height of the financial crisis.

RBS announced also that bad loans had increased by £100 million, “reflecting the more uncertain economic outlook”.

Chief executive Ross McEwan warned earlier this month that a no-deal Brexit risks sending the British economy into recession in 2019.

In the face of Brexit uncertainty, RBS lending was becoming more cautious while companies were delaying investment decisions, McEwan said.

The bank has said that it is planning for the worst amid increasing worries that Britain will exit the European Union in March without a deal in place with Brussels.

RBS is meanwhile looking to set up a European subsidiary in Amsterdam to serve customers on the continent.

The lender remains majority-owned by the British government after it was saved with £45.5 billion of taxpayers’ cash at the height of the global financial crisis in 2008.

Britain in June resumed privatisation of the Royal Bank of Scotland and the Conservative government led by Prime Minister Theresa May is seeking to sell two-thirds of its stake for roughly £15 billion over a five-year period.

RBS was fined $4.9 billion by the US Justice Department over its role in the subprime housing crisis which sparked the 2008 meltdown... read more ultrasurfing

Loftus-Cheek treble fuels Chelsea as Arsenal streak hits 11

Ruben Loftus-Cheek gave manager Maurizio Sarri a reminder of his ability with a hat-trick against BATE

Paris (AFP) - Ruben Loftus-Cheek capitalised on a rare start for Chelsea by scoring a hat-trick in Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League victory over BATE of Belarus, while Arsenal extended their winning run to 11 games away to Sporting Lisbon.

Loftus-Cheek, part of England’s World Cup squad in Russia, started for just the second time this season under Maurizio Sarri and struck twice inside the opening eight minutes as Chelsea dominated at Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old midfielder drilled in a low Davide Zappacosta cross as the Blues led after two minutes, and Loftus-Cheek doubled his tally when he hooked in from a corner.

He completed his hat-trick with a side-footed effort from the edge of the area on 54 minutes, although BATE left with a consolation goal after an unmarked Aleksei Rios turned in from a late free-kick.

“It feels really good,” Loftus Cheek told BT Sport after he became the first Chelsea player to score a hat-trick in Europe since Didier Drogba 12 years ago.

“It’s up there, it’s my first hat-trick in a while, even since playing for the youth team. It feels nice.

“Any player will tell you it’s nice to score a hat-trick and it feels good, I’ll get the ball signed and put in a glass box. Hopefully there are many more to come.”

Three wins from three in Group L have Chelsea poised to reach the last 32 of the competition, with Unai Emery’s Arsenal set to join them following a 1-0 victory in Portugal.

Danny Welbeck celebrates netting the winner for Arsenal in Lisbon

Danny Welbeck pounced on a defensive lapse by former Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates on 78 minutes to keep Arsenal on maximum points in Group E and prolong the club’s best run since 2007.

- AC Milan, Marseille lose -

Seven-time European champions AC Milan crashed to a 2-1 home defeat by Real Betis as Gennaro Gattuso’s team dropped their first points in Group F.

Goals from Antonio Sanabria and Giovani Lo Celso, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, earned group leaders Betis a memorable win at the San Siro.

Patrick Cutrone grabbed a consolation for Milan who finished the game with 10 men after Samuel Castillejo saw red for the hosts in injury time.

Olympiakos beat Dudelange of Luxembourg 2-0 in the group’s other fixture, while there was more misery for Brendan Rodgers and Scottish champions Celtic in Germany.

Brazilian striker Matheus Cunha and Portugal winger Bruma, who scored against Scotland in a friendly this month, were both on target in the first half as RB Leipzig won 2-0.

Salzburg picked up a third successive victory to stay top of Group B as Munas Dabbur netted twice in a 3-0 defeat of bottom side Rosenborg.

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers remain unbeaten in Group G but were left frustrated after a 0-0 draw against an understrength Spartak Moscow, who left a number of first-choice players behind in Russia.

“We are making huge strides from where we were,” said Gerrard.

“We came close but it wasn’t to be. It could be a valuable point at the end of the day.

“It shows just how far we’ve come when we are disappointed to take a point off a Champions League team.”

Rangers are level on five points with Villarreal at the top after the Spaniards hammered Rapid Vienna 5-0.

Last season’s runners-up Marseille are in danger of an early exit after losing 3-1 at home to Lazio, while five-time champions Sevilla thrashed Turkish club Akhisar 6-0.
