  • Gary Neville calls Pep Guardiola's controversial decision for Burnley game a 'joke'

However, many football fans appear to have little sympathy for Pep Guardiola's team, as City are one of the richest clubs in the world, they're 15 points clear at the top of the table, and injuries are a problem for all sides at this stage of the season.

It means City have to settle for only extending their lead to 16 points at the Premier League summit. Newly minted due to their takeover by the Abu Dhabi group, City swooped in with a massive £32.5m and snapped up the Brazilian from under Chelsea's nose - even Robinho himself seemed surprised by the move, as evidenced by his confusion in the press conference that saw him unveiled.

He later met up with David Beckham's eldest son Brooklyn in the evening as the £52million summer signing, who has become a fan-favourite at City, ensured it was not all work and no play.

"Forget the second team. I could call one of the second team but they play for the second team on Friday", he said. "In my experience until everything is done, you have to be prepared for anything to happen".

"We played good. I think to come here and play the way we played, maybe you don't realise, but the way we played was nearly ideal".

Three Indian Army Soldiers Killed In Avalanche In IHK
Earlier in the month, as many as 11 people were killed after the Tangdhar avalanche hit the Kupwara-Tangdhar road in the state. A search operation was started immediately, and all the four soldiers trapped under snow were evacuated.


"We didn't really play with the quality needed in the first half".

Yet, it appears Guardiola is so depleted of first-team options, that he has been unable to name a full squad for the trip to Burnley on Saturday.

City also failed to purchase attacking reinforcements in January, with long-term target Alexis Sanchez joining rivals Manchester United and Leicester standing firm on Mahrez.

"Rather than saying in an interview "I haven't got the players", he could say he's brought a young player from the youth team who has been wonderful this season. It is poor to not bring a young player, it is really poor". And I can guarantee you the youth team coach and reserve team coach at Man City will feel disheartened by him having six players on the bench.
