West Brom 0-3 Manchester City – Sterling Makes Debut But Toure Brace Earns City Dominant Win

11th August 2015, 17:43:32

Nigel French/EMPICS Sport The Sky Blues start the new season in style as they fight to get their crown back.

All eyes were on Raheem Sterling as Manchester City travelled to the Hawthorns but it was the familiar talent of Yaya Toure that inspired the away side to a dominate victory. The Ivorian's shot after just nine minutes got Manuel Pellegrini's side off to a roaring start as it glanced off David Silva and trundled past Boaz Myhill. Fifteen minutes later and the 32-year-old had grabbed his second, nonchalantly curling a shot into the top corner to extend City's lead. Skipper, Vincent Kompany  put the game out of the Baggies reach and headed in from a corner as City delivered an early statement of Premier League title intent. Debutant Raheem Sterling missed the chance to score on his debut after breaking clear on goal only to see his shot saved by Myhill. West Brom's only real chance fell to James Morrison who headed straight at Joe Hart from a Chris Brunt cross.

Nick Potts/EMPICS Sport Louis van Gaal is trying to lure the City starlet to Old Trafford.

16-year-old Cameron Humphreys started for Manchester City last Friday as Manuel Pellegrini's side faced Real Madrid. He astonishingly walked out of the MCG cricket ground in Melbourne alongside Yaya Toure, David Silva and Raheem Sterling but perhaps more amazingly was that he was then expected to mark Madrid's fearsome front-line of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.


5 Things Manchester City Fans Can Expect From Raheem Sterling

20th July 2015, 14:28:54

Sky Sports Can the 20-year-old bring the title back to the Etihad?

As a Manchester City fan I spent much of last season asking questions that went, mostly, unanswered. Why did we not buy better players in the close season? Why is Yaya Toure seem to be so lazy? Will Kompany ever be the dominant player he used to be again? Will we ever score from a corner again? Why does Navas only run down the wing and kick the ball into defenders’ legs? And why the hell do we keep getting Barcelona in the European Champions League?

The rise to prominence of Manchester City in recent years has been one of the biggest stories in English football.

30th June 2015, 17:08:55

Marco Vasini/AP But the deal will not go through until the summer of 2016.

Barcelona have reportedly agreed a £64 million deal to sign Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. The transfer which will not go through until July 2016 was allegedly made during a lunch held between officials from the two clubs. The fee for the France international is reported to be around £57 million with £7 million in add-ons but due to Barcelona's transfer embargo it will not go through until next summer. Pogba who helped Juventus to reaching a Champions League final last season has been sought after by a number of top european sides, including, Manchester City and Manchester United. The deal will mean that the central midfielder will stay in Turin for one more season before making his dream move to Catalonia. Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta said he felt the key to signing Pogba is agent Mino Raiola who he felt Barcelona had a strong relationship with. He said: "We carried out negotiations with him [Mino] for the deals involving Maxwell and Zlatan Ibrahimovic."
