Pep Guardiola says he can’t help John Stones’ push for Euro 2020

The England international has struggled to attain regular playing time with the Citizens over the past year and of late, there have been situations whereby he has been left on the bench or excluded from the matchday squad altogether.

It is simple, he is a young central defender. I want to make decisions that he likes but I have to make decisions to be honest with me. I know it is not easy for him.”

Maguire insists Jesse Lingard should have scored for Manchester United

England international Harry Maguire has said that compatriot Jesse Lingard should have found the net for Manchester United during the club’s 2-0 Premier League at Watford. The Red Devils had the chance to open the scoresheet early in the game but Lingard squandered a one-on-one with goalkeeper Ben Foster as he chipped his effort over the bar.


In the second half, the Hornets were the better team during the early stages but ultimately the Red Devils were the reason for their own downfall. A David de Gea blunder contributed to the opening goal and just five minutes later, they conceded a penalty which Troy Deeney comfortably slotted into the net.

He’s not had a new one, but it’s not flying along as much as we would want. It’s not for the want of trying, from everybody and Ruben himself of course. There’s nothing worse than being injured. “But at the moment we’re no closer to him being fit.”
