Manuel Pellegrini targeting West Ham top-six finish next season

West Ham have named Andy Carroll as captain against Man City

The Chilean said: "To be generous, (it was) a little soft but (that is being) too generous". In the other box Manuel Lanzini had exactly the same and he didn't throw (himself) to the floor.

"The win gives us more confidence", said Senegalese striker Sadio Mane who scored twice.

However, when asked if he could confirm where Wilshere would be out for the season, Pellegrini said: "No, because I'm not a doctor".

The 27-year-old was expected to return soon and went back to light training but he has felt pain in his ankle joint.

City, who won the Carabao Cup last weekend, are still in contention for an unprecedented quadruple and are trying to balance the title chase with involvement in the Champions League and FA Cup. Now, Pep Guardiola's side will have a quick turnaround as its focus returns to the Premier League.

"When you have such a bad injury maybe you are not so comfortable in the first games, you are anxious, you don't trust too much in yourself to tackle or make good passes".

"We created an incredible amount of chances, in the first five minutes it could be 2-0".

"They didn't score another goal and we defended very well".

United States seeks UN vote for new Venezuela election and needed aid
The United States is leading a push for recognition of Guaido, who heads the National Assembly, backed by about 50 countries . A resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain and the United States to pass.

"So after 120 minutes (on Sunday) we made an incredible performance".

"We played two and a half days ago, a hard game, and we performed well again tonight".

City stay a point behind leaders Liverpool, who hammered Watford 5-0 at Anfield.

And De Bruyne has warned that City players are at the wrong club if they are not ready to step up to the challenge.

"But we did well, really, honestly".

The North London derby may not have title implications, after Tottenham's defeats to Burnley and Chelsea left them nine points off top, but with fourth-placed Arsenal just four points behind Mauricio Pochettino's side there is plenty at stake.

Guardiola said of the title race: "We know with 10 games (to go) many things is going to happen".

"We must wait for Jack when he comes back and see how he feels". Key players like Miguel Almiron, Salomon Rondon and Sean Longstaff will be pivotal for Newcastle, and if they have big games then the Magpies will have a good chance of winning.
