The 34-year-old, who is in talks with City over an extension, shone as a holding midfielder in City’s title-winning campaigns but has been forced to reinvent himself as a centre-back this season due to the team’s injury problems. He has won the Premier League three times since joining City from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013 and his selfless displays during his time at the Etihad Stadium have left Guardiola hoping their relationship can continue. “Of course (I’d like him to stay). I’m so confident and I’m so delighted with the three-and-a-half years we’ve had together,” Guardiola told reporters. “He does not have to convince me to stay longer, he convinced me on day one. He knows exactly the opinion we have about what he’s done at the club for many years. “He is one of the greatest players this club has had in its whole history.” Fernandinho switched to defence after an injury to Aymeric Laporte left Guardiola short at the back. John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi have also missed games and lacked form, leaving Fernandinho as clear first choice in the position.last_img read more

Players pay tribute to O’Neill

first_img And he finally got his moment in the sun when Martin Paterson rose to nod home Niall McGinn’s fine one-touch cross to establish a first-half lead Russia were unable to respond to. McGinn, who was the goalscorer and star of the show in the previous high point of the O’Neill era – a 1-1 draw in Portugal – was delighted to finally give the former Shamrock Rovers coach three points to celebrate. “That was for the boss,” said the Aberdeen forward. “We had massive belief going into the match, although few people gave us any hope. “The boss has waited a long time for a victory so that was for him. It was an unbelievable night, played in an electric atmosphere. There is a great togetherness in the squad, demonstrated with our reaction afterwards. “We got together in a huddle just to congratulate each other.” Huddersfield striker Paterson, who put in a wonderful shift leading the line and was rewarded with his first competitive international goal, echoed those sentiments. “The win was much needed for Michael,” he said. Press Association Northern Ireland’s match-winners dedicated the defeat of Russia to long-suffering manager Michael O’Neill. The 1-0 victory over Fabio Capello’s side at Windsor Park marked O’Neill’s first success on the international stage – ending a 20-month wait that had previously yielded five draws and four defeats. During those tough times the players spoke frequently and passionately of their support for O’Neill, who has worked diligently behind the scenes since replacing Nigel Worthington at the helm. “With the performances and the way we’ve played he deserves that victory, and I think he deserves it for the way he has stuck by how he wants us to play. “I think the group is only going to get better too.” Beating a Russia side ranked 16th in the world by FIFA, 93 places above Northern Ireland, was an even tougher task without senior players such as Jonny Evans, Chris Brunt, Kyle Lafferty and Chris Baird – absent for a variety of fitness and suspension issues. But having watched stand-ins such as Paterson, Jamie Ward, Craig Cathcart and Oliver Norwood excel, O’Neill warned that the established pecking order could be due a shake-up. Any of the four would be unlucky to be dropped for the home clash against Portugal next month, leaving him with the kind of selection dilemma managers crave. “I’ve been in the game long enough to not get carried away and say it is a new day but I know what we have in this squad,” he said. “In the past period I don’t think we’ve had enough pressure put on those (experienced) players in terms of staying in the team and keeping the jersey. “The onus now is on these players, instead of people thinking they have the right to play you need to be picking from a healthier base. “Hopefully you’re seeing the the shape of a team that can continue to develop. “Nights like this are invaluable in terms of giving the the players the belief they can play at the top level. “They can compete and show quality and they showed that really well in possession and defended exceptionally well.” Northern Ireland have no realistic prospect of qualifying from Group F, but the forthcoming double header against Portugal and Luxembourg offers a chance to build on the best result of their recent history. last_img read more

Martinez opens striker search

first_img While the arrival of Aiden McGeady from Spartak Moscow has boosted their attacking capabilities Martinez does not want to leave his side short up front. On-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is the stand-out first-choice but with Arouna Kone likely to be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury the Toffees boss knows he has to find a back-up to help maintain, if not improve, their fifth-place position. Everton manager Roberto Martinez is actively seeking a replacement for Nikica Jelavic after the Croatia international completed his move to Hull. Despite the Spaniard’s reluctance to talk about a new deal for the England left-back Press Association Sport understands there has been considerable groundwork done over the last couple of months. That appears to have paved the way for the club to be optimistic the 29-year-old, whose current contract expires in 17 months, will agree to extend his stay. Having fended off bids from former Toffees boss David Moyes at Manchester United in the summer Martinez said they wanted to reward Baines’ loyalty with an improved deal but the Spaniard has been wary over speaking publicly about negotiations. Keeping Baines out of the hands of United would be a major coup for Everton and a sign of how Martinez’s arrival in the summer as Moyes’ successor has had a huge effect. The club sit just one point behind fourth-placed Merseyside rivals Liverpool and have lost just twice all season as the Spaniard’s change in style has reaped instant rewards. Martinez significantly gave youngster Ross Barkley a key role in his midfield and has seen the 20-year-old blossom as a result, winning his first senior England cap and putting himself in with a good chance of securing a place in Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad. Barkley is currently contracted until 2016, having signed a long-term deal in December 2011, but could also be in line for a new contract in line with his rising importance in the side. The midfielder travelled to Tenerife with the rest of the squad for a warm-weather training break despite being ruled out for possibly three weeks with a broken toe. “What is important is that Aiden McGeady arriving has given us a bit more strength in the wide areas and there are many flexible players who can fill in to that number nine position,” Martinez told evertonfc.com. “But it would be an area that we are looking at before the window closes. “We are looking at the options to see if there is a player with the right profile who would fit into the squad.” Such was the form of Lukaku, Jelavic barely got a chance in the first team and Martinez felt with the player due to go to the World Cup it was in everyone’s best interests to allow him to leave. “We agreed the deal (with Hull) and it was down to Nikica to make his decision,” he added. “I do believe when I spoke to Niki that he was clear that he wanted to join Hull. “He felt he would get the opportunity to play the games he needs ahead of the World Cup.” Martinez is more concerned with keeping players than bringing in new ones in January and it appears he will be able to plan for a long-term future with Leighton Baines after making significant inroads over contract negotiations.

Potters fight back to win

first_img The action switched to the other end again as Steven Nzonzi’s shot was blocked and from the resulting corner, Marc Wilson sent an effort goalwards that went behind off Odemwingie. Stoke were forced into a substitution just before the quarter-hour mark as Erik Pieters went off for Marc Muniesa, and the game then reduced in tempo somewhat after its frantic opening. Arnautovic earned a corner with an ambitious effort, and Crouch then did the same, leading to the Potter’s leveller. From Ireland’s corner, Crouch nodded the ball into the ground and onto the bar, and then reacted quickly to volley it back goalwards. It struck Odemwingie, who was on the line, before going in, but Crouch might feel the goal should be his. Carroll was still on the hunt and cracked a shot over the bar as half-time approached, before Ireland failed to make the most of being put through on goal, shooting straight at Adrian. Shortly after the restart Nolan headed Mohamed Diame’s cross wide from a good position and Crouch then just failed to make connection with a clever through-ball as he tried to nick it past Adrian. Carroll was next to find himself in space in front of goal, but saw his shot divert over via Begovic’s foot. Then came the offside decision, as Begovic punched the ball out, it came back into the box to Nolan and he guided it into the net. Much to his dismay, the flag was up. Stoke soon capitalised after surviving that scare, as Arnautovic collected the ball, squeezed into the box past several West Ham men and beat Adrian. And after West ham had had a couple of handball claims waved away, Odemwingie made the three points safe with a goal that was certainly his, smashing in emphatically from Ireland’s pass as Stoke surged forward on the break. Stoke bounced back from conceding early on to see off West Ham 3-1 at the Britannia Stadium. Kevin Nolan thought he had made it 2-1 to the visitors when he put the ball in the net in the 61st minute, but the effort was ruled out for offside. And Stoke subsequently went on to wrap up victory, with Marko Arnautovic getting through a crowd of players and slotting in on 69 minutes before Odemwingie finished a Potters counter-attack by lashing home with 11 minutes to go. Early on, it appeared as if the day might belong to Carroll. Since becoming West Ham’s record signing last summer, Carroll has endured a frustrating campaign, missing much of it due to a foot injury and then, after finally regaining his fitness, being hit with a three-match suspension for a red card in February. He is still hoping to make England’s squad for this summer’s World Cup, though, and on what was his first start since his sending-off and only his seventh appearance of the season, he looked like a man on a mission as this game got under way. The 25-year-old, who was on loan with West Ham from Liverpool last term and last scored in April, had already had a shot blocked when he headed the Hammers into the lead Carroll connected with Mark Noble’s floated free-kick as his marker Crouch and Begovic got in each other’s way. Stoke were almost level immediately as Adrian tipped a Stephen Ireland effort around the post, but Carroll was soon threatening again, bringing a save out of Begovic. Hammers striker Andy Carroll opened the scoring in the fifth minute of Barclays Premier League contest with his first goal of the season, rising above Peter Crouch and crashing a header past Asmir Begovic, who had rushed off his line to try to punch the ball away. The hosts equalised in the 32nd minute when Crouch, following up his own header that had hit the bar, saw his acrobatic effort go in off the shoulder of Peter Odemwingie.
