Pep Guardiola enjoying his 'Fergie time'


The Premier League's gold standard when it comes to late goals and drama has always been Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United, but Pep Guardiola's extraordinary Manchester City side could challenge that this season.

West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta had a special message for fans of Manchester City as he made his return to the Etihad Stadium to play against his former club on Sunday.

Free-scoring City found it hard to break down the well-organised Hammers after Angelo Ogbonnna's shock opener just before half-time, but they kept their heads and equalised through Nicolas Otamendi 12 minutes after the break before David Silva volleyed a fine victor with seven minutes left.

"United will be confident going into the game because of what has happened this weekend for City, even though it has been a good week for City too, as they've scored three late winners and have taken maximum points".

"We started really well but we lost our patience". It's a big victory.

"You have to try to solve it (when teams pack the defence). I think not only Shakhtar's supporters but all Ukrainians have to be proud of our team". We had two strikers in the second half and that helped, it was a big lesson for me.

The groups plan to slash costs, offload at least £2bn worth of assets and target high growth markets such as Spain and Ireland. Shares in Hammerson were down 1.45% to 526.75p on Wednesday morning, while Intu's were up 20% to 238.54p by 1100 GMT.

"We spoke a lot about defending set-pieces but they are taller", he said of West Ham.

Guardiola said he would have preferred winning before the last moments.

David Moyes' side began to tire and City's persistence paid off with just seven minutes remaining when Silva acrobatically volleyed Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant, lofted pass into the far corner of the net, giving the recalled Adrian no chance. "We showed much better discipline as a team and now we need to move on". It's complicated for us, and they obviously hold the game, and try to take advantage from a set piece.
