Augero 1st Appearance for Manchester City 2nd Goal Vs Swansea City

While still holding the position of the top English Premier League to reach her first title since 1968, but Manchester City and Manchester United's second rank (MU) has the same value, namely 45 points from 18 times a game. Manchester City still leads the league just because it scored more goals, with goal difference while Chelsea have 38 goal difference 33.

The pressure will be heavier for Roberto Mancini's team in January, where they will meet Manchester United in the third round FA Cup and League Cup Liverpool in the semi-finals.

MU will only meet the team at the bottom of Blackburn on Saturday, and almost certainly the City will fall into second place in early 2012 after acquiring the top of the standings throughout the season.

City goalkeeper Joe Hart said the team began to feel increasingly heavy pressure, while the captain Mancini said he was confident could perform well and strong enough to rival Manchester United.

Still from the world of football, the legendary Diego Maradona says he is open to train the national team United Arab Emirates. Maradona, who since May coached the UAE's Al Wasl, local media cited the potential since Srecko Katanec of Slovenia was fired as coach following a 3-1 defeat of Lebanon in September.

Maradona did not say Wednesday whether he had received an offer, but said that he would gladly accept it if offered.
