0Shares0000Pep Guardiola saw his Manchester City side thrash Schalke 7-0 on TuesdaySWANSEA, United Kingdom, Mar 15 – Pep Guardiola remains coy about Manchester City’s chances of winning the quadruple, but his side face Swansea in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday standing just 16 games away from a clean sweep of all four major trophies.Guardiola’s team moved closer to the unprecedented silverware haul on Tuesday as they advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 7-0 demolition of Schalke in the last 16, second leg. City have already won the League Cup, beating Chelsea in last month’s final, but that has not quenched Guardiola’s thirst for more success.A victory at second-tier Swansea would see City move into the FA Cup semi-finals, with the Premier League title race set to go down to the wire.City are one point clear of second-placed Liverpool and although the reigning champions would be knocked off top spot if the Reds win at Fulham on Sunday, they will have a game in hand.In a bid to keep the pressure off his players, Guardiola has tried to talk down the possibility of City winning all four trophies, something that no team in the history of the English game has managed.“I said so many times, and I know you are generous and thank you so much guys, but every time you make that comment we lose a competition, so I think you provoke me in that way so, the next one we will see,” joked Guardiola recently when asked about the prospect of a quadruple.Swansea, currently mid-table in the Championship, are not expected to pose a major threat to City, but sterner tests lie in wait in what promises to a be a dramatic finale to the season.The Champions League has provided some painful moments for Guardiola, who won the tournament twice as Barcelona boss but has not lifted the trophy since 2011.– Traditional powers –Pep Guardiola celebrates as goal hero Riyad Mahrez looks onYet with English clubs constituting half of the eight teams in the Champions League quarter-finals, there are few opponents remaining who can intimidate City, especially with traditional powers such as Real Madrid and Bayern Munich having already exited the competition.Even so, given the magnitude of the achievement City are chasing, the hype surrounding his team at present appears muted.The last — and, so far, only — English club to win the treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League was Manchester United under Alex Ferguson in 1999.Guardiola himself achieved the equivalent in Spain with Barcelona in 2008-09.Yet, Guardiola has done such a good job of playing down expectations in almost every scenario in which City have found themselves this season that the issue of a possible quadruple has barely been on the news agenda.On the occasions that he has been asked about such a possibility, Guardiola has claimed that, to be considered among Europe’s elite, City first have to ensure they are regularly competing in the latter stages of the big competitions.“The big clubs, that is the big difference, as I said many times –- what is the best clubs in the last decade? Juventus, Bayern Munich, Barcelona — these are the best three teams in the last decade in Europe,” said the Spaniard.“Why? Because every season they win the league, every season they win the cups, every season they are there, because they are the best.“It’s difficult to imitate them, being in the competition, it doesn’t matter which one –- until the last stages.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
1 Steven Gerrard is fit again for Liverpool 1 GoalkeeperSimon Mignolet’s change in fortunes since being dropped a few months ago have been promising, but the lack of competition for a spot in goal means there is little choice for Rodgers.DefenceEmre Can is likely to return to the back three, having been deployed in midfield last time out against Blackburn. Skrtel’s recovery from a nasty looking head injury means he is pretty much nailed-on to start, while Rodgers will have a decision to make over whether to select Sakho or Dejan Lovren as the third centre-back. We’re backing the Frenchman to get the nod.MidfieldGerrard’s return to fitness means it will be a straight fight between him and Joe Allen for a spot alongside Jordan Henderson. Despite the club legend’s days coming to an end, sentimentality will not enter Rodgers’ mind. Latest reports suggest that Allen will continue in the middle, with Gerrard on the bench. Alberto Moreno will start at wing-back, with Lazar Markovic and Raheem Sterling the two choices on the opposite flank. Sterling has operated in this position over the past two outings, so don’t be surprised to him there again.AttackWith Sterling tipped to start at wing-back, it seems as though it will be business at usual at the other end of the pitch. Daniel Sturridge is nearing his best again, while behind him Philippe Coutinho has been in excellent form and Adam Lallana is looking like a solid signing.Liverpool fans, how do you think you’ll line-up? Comment below… The race for a top four spot took on a new dimension over the weekend, and for Liverpool, they can throw themselves even deeper into the mix with victory on Monday evening.First though, the Redmen need to get past a Swansea City team in mixed form, but following an eight-day break, Brendan Rodgers’ side will certainly fancy their chances.Liverpool’s resurgence over the second half of the season has been something to behold, with the Merseysiders unbeaten in their last 12 league matches, and given their recent run of seven victories from eight suggests they enter this clash as huge favourites.The big news, though, surrounds talismanic captain Steven Gerrard, who is available once again having missed seven games with a hamstring injury.Whether Rodgers will offer a return to action for the club hero remains to be seen, however, there doesn’t appear to be anywhere near the same level of debate over his other fit-again stars.Martin Skrtel is available, despite being stretchered off with a head injury against Blackburn. Also back in the fray is Mamadou Sakho, but both Lucas Leiva and Jordon Ibe remain absent.Below is how Liverpool could line up:
Regarding the tackle that led to it all, Palmer said Kimo von Oelhoffen did nothing. “I don’t know Kimo personally,” Palmer said. “From what I’ve heard, he’s a classy guy. Football is football. I don’t think it was malicious at all.” HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Looking to replace Herman Edwards, the New York Jets are talking to Jim Haslett, Mike Tice and Joe Vitt, all of whom were head coaches in the NFL this season. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ASHBURN, Va. – Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was fined $17,000 Monday by the NFL for spitting in the face of Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Michael Pittman. Taylor was ejected and penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct for spitting at Pittman in the third quarter of Saturday’s playoff game. The offense was considered so egregious that Pittman wasn’t penalized for slapping Taylor in the helmet in retaliation.

Barber said after the game that the Giants were outcoached by Carolina’s John Fox, a former Giants defensive coordinator. Coughlin was clearly displeased with the comments, and expressed that on Monday after taking the unusual step of calling Barber in to look at game films of the 23-0 loss.
