Match Preview John Stones Manchester City 2018-19In the unusual position of playing catch up, Pep Guardiola said earlier this week that he wants his Manchester City players to ignore what Liverpool are doing and simply concentrate on their own job.A seven-point gap has now opened between the teams, however, and if the Citizens fail to respond to the form of their opponents, it would deal a major blow to their hopes of defending their Premier League crown.“I’ve told them, don’t look and be scared, don’t watch the calendar for the Liverpool games, forget about them,” he said. “Normally when that happens you lose your games, in my experience. If you think they are going to lose in that game or that game, you are distracted and you lose your games. And after, it’s over.”City have just fallen a touch short of the almost flawless form that they showed throughout the whole of last season. Indeed, they would have to win all of their remaining 16 matches if they were to hit the heights of their record-breaking form of 2017-18, when they struck 100 points.Midfielder Bernardo Silva, however, remains upbeat about the situation , especially as Guardiola is nearing a fully fit squad.“It is good finally to be back together and until this moment of the season we have had so many injured players,” he said.“We have never played with the whole squad so to have almost everyone available is fantastic for us and it is very good to try and go for all the competitions.”Mark Hudson, who is in temporary charge of Huddersfield, meanwhile, wants to see unity from his men as they battle apparently insurmountable odds.“My side will be full of intent, aggressive and work hard for each other. A real togetherness is something I really believe in, you can’t get any result without being together,” he said. “Everyone has to work as hard as they can for each other as part of the team.“Man City are a world-class team with a world-class manager, but we’ve just got to look forward to it.“We have to show intent, it’s all about us, what we can do this week on the training field and go into the game with real intent to try and pose them as many problems as we can.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more


Pakistan rules out shifting of Davis Cup tie against India to neutral venue

first_imgPakistan rules out shifting of Davis Cup tie against India to neutral venuePakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) chief Saleem Saifullah told that the federation was making all the preparations to host the tie at the Islamabad Sports Complex.advertisement Press Trust of India KarachiAugust 11, 2019UPDATED: August 11, 2019 18:55 IST Pakistan rules out shifting of Davis Cup tie against India to neutral venue (IANS Photo)HIGHLIGHTSPTF chief Saleem Saifullah told PTI that the federation was making all the preparations to host the tiePTF chief Saifullah said the Indian tennis team will be perfectly safe in PakistanITF said it will ask the International Tennis Federation to move the Davis Cup tie to a neutral venueThe Pakistan Tennis Federation (PTF) Sunday ruled out shifting of the Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Group-1 tie against India to be played in Islamabad on September 14-15 to a neutral venue.PTF chief Saleem Saifullah told PTI that the federation was making all the preparations to host the tie at the Islamabad Sports Complex.”We are sticking to our original programme of hosting the tie on 14-15 September and I don’t see any problem or reason for the Indian team to feel unsafe to come to Islamabad,” Saifullah said.The escalating tension between the two countries in the aftermath of Indian government’s scrapping of Article 370 which had accorded special status to Jammu and Kashmir has made the tie uncertain.The Indian Tennis Federation has said it will ask the International Tennis Federation to move the Davis Cup tie to a neutral venue.But Saifullah said the Indian tennis team will be perfectly safe in Pakistan.”They will stay for four days in Islamabad which is a safe city. We have made top-level security arrangements for them at their hotel and at the venue. So what is the problem for them to play in Islamabad? If they want, we will not even have spectators for the tie,” he said.Saifullah said the ITF has not yet contacted the PTF on shifting the tie to a neutral venue.He said the tie was very important for Pakistan in terms of promoting tennis in the country and earning revenues.He said the PTF was in already in touch with concerned ministries to ensure the Davis Cup tie was held on schedule in Islamabad.advertisement”As it is after a long time we have started hosting our Davis Cup ties at home,” the PTF chief noted.The Indian tennis federation on Saturday confirmed that it will approach world governing body ITF, seeking a neutral venue for the Davis Cup tie against Pakistan, saying it’s not an “unreasonable request” considering the escalating tension between the two nations.”We have assessed the situation and feel that the atmosphere is not conducive to play in Pakistan. We have decided to write to the ITF on Monday to provide a neutral venue for the tie,” AITA secretary general Hironmoy Chatterjee had told PTI.”It’s now up to the ITF. They will put it before the Davis Cup committee but it’s likely that they will accept our request. We are not making an unreasonable request. It’s a genuine request. In current circumstances, it is not conducive to play there,” he said.Read more | Rogers Cup: Rohan Bopanna and Denis Shapovalov crash out semi-finalsAlso see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
