Manchester City broke through Newport's stubborn defense in the second half to beat the fourth-tier side 4-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday, although the result wasn't as straightforward as the scoreline suggested.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Gabriel Jesus scored four goals in Manchester City's 9-0 win over third-tier Burton Albion on Wednesday in the first leg of an English League Cup semifinal that proved even more of a mismatch than anticipated.
Kevin De Bruyne, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Phil Foden, Kyle Walker and Riyad Mahrez also scored at Etihad Stadium for a result that virtually renders the second leg meaningless in two weeks.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City swept to its biggest win under Pep Guardiola with a 7-0 thrashing of second-tier Rotherham in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
There were seven different scorers at Etihad Stadium. Ilkay Gundogan wasn't one of them but he set up four goals.
WATFORD, England (AP) — Manchester City held off a late fightback from Watford to claim a 2-1 victory that moved the defending champion five points clear in the Premier League on Tuesday.
Leroy Sane showed improvisation by using his chest to score City's opening goal in the 40th minute. Riyad Mahrez, who swung in the cross for that goal, added a second for Pep Guardiola's side in the 51st minute.
LYON, France (AP) — Manchester City twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Lyon and secure a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League with a game to spare on Tuesday.
Sergio Aguero earned the point the English champions needed to guarantee a top-two finish in Group F, heading in a corner from Riyad Mahrez in the 83rd minute — just after Maxwel Cornet regained the lead for Lyon with his second goal of an end-to-end game.
Forget about Raheem Sterling tripping himself up and still winning a penalty. He's no longer the fall-guy at Manchester City.
In fact, the oft-criticized winger has become one of the most appreciated and important members of Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side and might be in the form of his career heading into the Manchester derby on Sunday.
LONDON (AP) — Riyad Mahrez paid tribute to the Leicester owner killed in a helicopter crash after scoring Manchester City's goal in a 1-0 win over Tottenham in the English Premier League on Monday.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Joe Hart endured a tough return to former club Manchester City as Burnley was thrashed 5-0 by the champions in the English Premier League on Saturday.
The former England goalkeeper earned a standing ovation at Etihad Stadium and made a series of fine saves on his first return to the club with whom he won two league titles in a decade of service.
LONDON (AP) — Premier League title favorites Liverpool and Manchester City can usually be relied on to provide open and expansive games with goals aplenty. Sunday's 0-0 draw at Anfield, however, was a drab affair that only came to life in the closing stages.
City substitute Leroy Sane was sent sprawling by Virgil van Dijk with five minutes remaining and, just when it seemed as though the visitors might snatch victory, Riyad Mahrez sent his penalty sailing way over the crossbar.
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Riyad Mahrez missed an 85th-minute penalty as Manchester City wasted a chance to move clear of Premier League title rival Liverpool following a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday.
The two teams started the highly anticipated encounter locked together at the top of the standings and City looked set to beat Juergen Klopp's Liverpool when Mahrez ballooned his spot kick way over the crossbar, after substitute Leroy Sane had been brought down by Virgil van Dijk.
CARDIFF, Wales (AP) — Sergio Aguero celebrated signing a new contract with Manchester City by scoring the opening goal in a 5-0 win over Cardiff in the English Premier League on Saturday.
The Argentina striker's fourth league goal of the season came on his 300th appearance for City, which bounced back from its surprise midweek loss to Lyon in the Champions League.
Manchester City delivered yet another reminder that it is the team to beat in the Premier League this season.
On Sunday's evidence, winning the league title looks beyond Manchester United.
A few hours after City thrashed Huddersfield 6-1 — mainly thanks to a hat trick by Sergio Aguero — United slumped to a 3-2 loss at Brighton after conceding three goals in a 20-minute span in the first half.
The transfer window has been shortened in the Premier League and will close on Thursday, before the season starts.
Here is the pick of the signings so far:
RIYAD MAHREZ (Manchester City)
Whether City needed another attacking midfield to complement Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Leroy Sane, David Silva and rising star Phil Foden is open to question.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City has signed Riyad Mahrez for a club-record 60 million pounds ($80 million) as it further strengthens its team after winning the Premier League title.
The 27-year-old Algeria winger was an integral part of Leicester's astonishing run to the title in 2016, but has been pushing to leave the central England club for a year.
Pep Guardiola's City, which won the league by 19 points in May, confirmed Tuesday evening that Mahrez has signed a five-year contract.
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Arsene Wenger will end his tenure at Arsenal without an away point in the Premier League in 2018 after his team lost 3-1 at Leicester on Wednesday.
It was the seventh straight loss on the road for Arsenal since the turn of the year, an embarrassing statistic for Wenger at the culmination of his reign of 22 years. Arsenal last had such a run of defeats in 1966.
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Southampton snapped a four-match losing run with a 0-0 draw at Leicester on Thursday but the result did little to ease the club's Premier League relegation fears.
Mark Hughes' team is four points adrift of fourth from bottom Swansea, which has played one game fewer, and five behind next best Crystal Palace.
"We will have to wait for the rest of the season to see if that's a significant point one way or the other," Hughes said.
WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) — Alan Pardew's future as West Bromwich Albion manager looks bleak after losing to Leicester 4-1 in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Jamie Vardy netted a volley and Riyad Mahrez, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Vicente Iborra also scored for eighth-place Leicester.
They cancelled out Salomon Rondon's early opener for the hosts.
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Riyad Mahrez saved Leicester from defeat with a last-gasp goal to salvage a point from a 1-1 Premier League draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.
It looked like Josh King's first-half penalty would be enough for the Cherries to take all three points at the King Power Stadium.
Leicester had chances to equalize but failed to break through until Mahrez struck from 25 yards (meters) out deep into injury time.
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland cost his team a precious victory in its fight against relegation from the Premier League by spilling the ball into his own net in a 1-1 draw at Leicester on Saturday.
The England international failed to hold onto Marc Albrighton's driven cross from the right, instead fumbling it sideways to gift Leicester a 70th-minute equalizer.
Back in favor at Leicester, Riyad Mahrez helped the team reach the FA Cup quarterfinals by resuming his lethal partnership with Jamie Vardy on Friday.
Vardy earned Leicester a 1-0 win over second-tier Sheffield United in the fifth round by heading in a cross from Mahrez, who was starting for the first time since the collapse of his move to Manchester City at the end of the January transfer window.
