Manchester City vs Watford 6-0 Highlights Download 18 May 2019 F.A Cup Final

Manchester City are taking this final seriously. They make only one change from the starting XI that secured the Premier League title against Brighton last week as Guardiola gives Jesus the nod up front over Aguero. Ederson, Walker and Jesus all make their 100th appearance for the club. Gracia stays loyal to the players from Watford’s final day drubbing by West Ham as cup keeper Gomes starts in their only change. Holebas can play as his unfair red card in that game was rescinded.

WATFORD SUBS: Ben Foster, Daryl Janmaat, Adam Masina, Christian Kabasele, Tom Cleverley, Isaac Success, Andre Gray.

WATFORD (4-2-2-2): Heurelho Gomes; Kiko Femenia, Adrian Mariappa, Craig Cathcart, Jose Holebas; Abdoulaye Doucoure, Etienne Capoue; Will Hughes, Roberto Pereyra; Troy Deeney (c), Gerard Deulofeu.

MAN CITY SUBS: Arijanet Muric, Danilo, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero.

MANCHESTER CITY (4-3-3): Ederson; Kyle Walker, Vincent Kompany (c), Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan, David Silva; Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling.


change up front could be on the cards at Old Trafford as they seek to sell off Lukaku and bring in a sharper striker. 

Romelu Lukaku and Moussa Dembele


Manchester United are considering a swoop for Lyon striker Moussa Dembele, with Romelu Lukaku nearing the exit door at Old Trafford.


According to The Sun, the 22-year-old is worth around £40m ($51m) and would fit United's new policy of targeting promising young players over marquee names.


Lukaku, meanwhile, has been heavily linked with Paris Saint Germain and Inter after a mediocre season for the Red Devils.


Arsenal and Manchester City are both interested in signing Charlton midfielder Joe Aribo - according to The Sun. 


The 22-year-old will become a free agent this summer and although the Addicks are keen to tie him down to a new deal, speculation is mounting over his future.


Aribo has been vital to Charlton's promotion push in League One, scoring ten goals in 37 appearances.


Gremio defender Walter Kannemann is the subject of interest from Arsenal, according to Calcio Mercato.


The 28-year-old is also a target for Sampdoria but the Gunners are hoping to secure his services with a €12m (£10m, $13m) bid this summer.


Kannemann joined Gremio in 2016 and has since managed to earn five caps for Argentina.


Arsenal are ready to step up their interest in Getafe defender Djene Dakonam, claims France Football.


The Togolese centre-half is said to be a top target for Unai Emery and is believed to have a release clause in his contract of around €35 million (£31m/$39m).

City may be forced to sell the German star, Leroy Sane if he does not agree a new contract which is on the table. 

Leroy Sane


Bayern Munich have opened talks with Manchester City over a move for Leroy Sane, the Daily Record reports. 


Sane was often left out of Pep Guardiola's starting XI this season, and City have given Bayern permission to speak with the German's representatives over contract terms. 


City may feel that selling Sane is the best option, with the 23-year-old so far rejecting the club's offers to extend a contract that runs out in 2021. 


Keylor Navas looks set to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season and Paris Saint-Germain could be the destination.


Reports in France suggest the Ligue 1 giants are on the hunt for a new shot stopper amid Gianluigi Buffon's disappointing turnout in the Champions League.


Navas has been dropped to the bench since Thibaut Courtois' arrival and is looking for first-team football. He could find it in the French capital.


Neymar is trying to convince his team Paris Saint-Germain to go after his national team-mate Philippe Coutinho, Sport claims.


The Brazilian pair have a close friendship and are eager to play alongside each other at club level. Coutinho is already being linked with a move away from Barcelona in the near future and Neymar hopes the ex-Liverpool star follows his lead in leaving Camp Nou for the French capital.

Manchester United could be forced to pay Alexis Sanchez £12 million to play for another team next season. 


The Mirror reports that Inter are in for the Chile international, but the Serie A side would only be willing to pay half of his wages. 


That would leave the Old Trafford outfit on the hook for £12m ($15m) over the course of the season if they want to get him out of the club. 


Gareth Bale is set to snub a potential move to Tottenham as he waits for a solution from Real Madrid. 


The Mirror reports that the winger is being pushed out by the Spanish giants, but won't agree to leave without his contract, which earns him over £600,000-a-week​, being honoured. 

The Brazil international is keen to remain at Camp Nou, but with fans turning on him there is a feeling inside the club that he is dispensable. 


Phillipe Coutinho


Barcelona's hierarchy are bracing themselves for interest from Chelsea in Philippe Coutinho as the Blues go in search of a replacement for Eden Hazard.


Goal  understands that even though Coutinho wants to remain at Camp Nou despite a disappointing first full campaign, some members of the Blaugrana's board of directors are keen to sell this summer.


The Brazil international has failed to impress since arriving from Liverpool in a £105 million ($135m) deal in January 2018, despite playing his part in two Liga title wins.


And while he has struggled to fully win over supporters in Catalunya, their relationship has suffered in recent weeks after his celebration after scoring against Manchester United in the Champions League.


Fans were unhappy at him placing his fingers in his ears so as to drown out his critics following his long-range strike against the Red Devils, and jeers from the stands have become more prevalent as a result.


A disappointing performance against his former club at Anfield as Barca crashed out of Europe saw further questions asked of the 26-year-old, and the number of dissenting voices inside the club are now growing.


Chelsea, meanwhile, look set to lose Hazard this summer, with the forward having dropped his biggest hint yet that he wants to join Real Madrid .


Though the two clubs are still a long way apart on a final fee, talks are ongoing, and the Blues are expected to earn at least €100m (£90m/$118m) from the sale of the Belgium international.


Given Hazard's importance to Maurizio Sarri's side - he scored 16 goals and laid on 15 assists in the Premier League alone in 2018-19 - a replacement is highly likely to be sought should their FIFA-inflicted transfer ban be delayed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).


It is understood that a decision on the two-window long suspension for registering senior players will be made before the closure of the upcoming transfer window, meaning a potential swoop for Coutinho would be viable.


Sarri is yet to speak to Chelsea's hierarchy regarding transfer targets for the summer, given the Blues still have the Europa League final to play on May 29 as well as the potential for them not being able to make any new additions to their squad until 2020.


But it is likely that both Sarri and the club will have their own targets, and Barca are of the belief that Coutinho will be on at least one of those lists given his experience of the Premier League and ability to play a similar role to that of Hazard.


Should an offer be forthcoming for the playmaker, there will certainly be those inside the Barcelona boardroom who would consider allowing the third-most expensive footballer of all time to leave the club.


Coutinho's potential departure could be one of a number of big name sales at Barcelona this summer, with Ivan Rakitic close to agreeing a €50m (£43m/$56m) move to Inter while Samuel Umtiti is being pushed towards the exits after an injury-hit campaign.

Christine Lampard made her first public appearance with her baby Patricia as they supported her husband Frank's football win on Sunday.

The Loose Women panellist, 40, brought her little girl along to watch Frank's team Derby thrash West Bromwich Albion 3-1 at at Pride Park Stadium, in Derby on Sunday.

Beaming Christine showed off her bundle of joy, seven months old, when she headed onto the pitch to congratulate her football manager husband, also 40.

Patricia was dressed for the special occasion in a pink crocheted cardigan, matching knitted hat and a lace-edged bib.

The footballer's daughter was delighted to see Frank on the pitch and Christine passed her over to her dad following his club's win.

It has been seven months since Christine welcomed her little cherub into the world; Frank's win at Derby's home game marked Patricia's first public outing.

The Spaniard has been Manchester United's best player for the past five years - but there are now calls for him to be dropped after a series of errors. 


David De Gea


They have been the most uncharacteristic of mistakes.


A tame Lionel Messi shot from 20 yards went right under his body, Leroy Sane’s near-post effort found him flat-footed, and a pot-shot from distance was spilled straight into the path of Marcos Alonso.


David de Gea’s desperately poor run of form has been depicted by three errors in four games and now many people are calling for him to be dropped, with some even suggesting that an exit to Real Madrid this summer would be no great loss after all.

Such is the life of a goalkeeper, even the one who has been Manchester United’s indisputable Player of the Year in four of the previous five seasons.


His record over 360 games in the United goal is of no import anymore; it’s only the last four matches that matter to the armchair managers who deal only in superlatives and absolutes. To them, he has become a figure of fun rather than the sport’s best shot-stopper, as he was almost unanimously acclaimed until very recently.


The Spain No.1 is clearly in a rut. The string of mistakes he has made say as much, and his run of 12 appearances without a clean sheet is the longest such streak of his United career.


But to look at previous such spells is to uncover a trend which sees the 28-year-old struggling amid uncertainty.


De Gea failed to record a shut-out in 11 straight games in the 2012-13 season shortly after being deposed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s first-choice by Anders Lindegaard.


The Dane had been picked for four straight Premier League games before De Gea came in for a 3-0 win at Newcastle but his next 11 matches would be interspersed with six appearances for Lindegaard as Ferguson failed to nail down an undisputed No.1 during a spell in which United conceded 29 goals in 17 games.

The Spaniard would again go 11 games without keeping the opposition out in 2015 either side of his near-miss transfer to Real Madrid.


He had gone seven without a shut-out at the end of the 2014-15 campaign and then was party to an eighth when being substituted due to a hamstring injury against Arsenal on a day when the Old Trafford crowd spent much of their afternoon begging him not to head to the Santiago Bernabeu.


After Louis van Gaal had decided to leave out the ‘distracted’ De Gea at the start of the following season, the failed move to Madrid saw the goalkeeper sign a new deal and he returned to the starting line-up against Liverpool in the September, going three more matches before recording a clean sheet.


It has been during periods when clarity has been missing in his personal situation that De Gea has struggled the most in his eight-year spell at United, and as such it comes as no surprise that he has been far from his best of late.


With his contract approaching its final 12 months, United have so far refused to meet his wage demands.


The talk is that De Gea and his agent Jorge Mendes are insisting that the No.1’s new deal reflects the higher pay threshold established when Alexis Sanchez arrived at Old Trafford for a back-busting £390,000 a week in January 2018. United, though, don’t want that to become the norm.


In the meantime, uncertainty reigns, and it can hardly have helped matters that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made multiple changes to his defensive line of late. Only in the first two matches of the recent 12-game spell have United retained the same back-line in front of De Gea, with a total of 10 different defensive selections in the dozen matches in question.


Solskjaer rightly remains adamant that De Gea will not be dropped.


“David has been unbelievable. We support each other,” the manager said after the draw with Chelsea. “There is no chance anyone can blame him for losing points, he knows he could have had that shot but that is football.


"David is someone who likes to play games and I will have chats with him and he will respond in the right way.”


Meanwhile, with his future still not sorted, United now risk losing their best player and creating an issue for themselves in the one department on the pitch which has been of no concern until recently.


While there has been much talk of Sergio Romero’s quality as a back-up keeper, the Argentine has hardly been infallible when he has had a run in the side during his four years at the club.


The truth of the matter is that De Gea is not just the best option United have, he remains among the very best in the world.


He has made vital errors in games of late but so did Lev Yashin and Dino Zoff and Gordon Banks. Just because their careers didn’t occur during the Twitter generation, with every piece of action being analysed on repeat for a week at a time, that doesn’t mean they were infallible.


As former Liverpool boss Graeme Souness so succinctly put it to Sky Sports on Sunday: “If you leave him out, you lose him forever,” and it is time United put an end to the lingering doubts and backed their greatest player of the post-Ferguson era.


Give him the contract he deserves, put the uncertainty in the past, and let him go out onto the pitch with a clear head and a secure future.


That’s the way to get the best out of David de Gea, and having the best David de Gea is a luxury few clubs could dream of.
