Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has spoken of the comparison between Sergio Aguero and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah ahead of the clash between the two clubs on Sunday.

He described the Liverpool player as being an excellent one but is not convinced he falls in the ranks where his player belongs.

Guardiola noted that Aguero has shown consistency over a long period and that must be seen of the Egyptian before he can earn a comparison with the Argentine striker.

Both players have got themselves firing for their various sides over the years but much has not been seen of the Liverpool striker who has been goal shy so far in the current campaign.

Salah scored 44 times in all competitions for the Reds earning him the golden boot last season while Aguero is the second highest scoring foreign player in the history of the Premier League and he is currently ranked amongst the first 10 highest goal scorers of all time.

This made the former Barcelona manager to hold the opinion that former Chelsea star must earn some level of consistency to be able to match up.

He, however, gave Salah the chance to achieve more feats in the league owing to his younger age and the ability he has in scoring goals.

Guardiola is not bothered but only confident that the Egyptian will still score despite living in his shadows this season without convincing performance yet.

No Van Dijk? This Liverpool’s predicted line-up will crush Chelsea if used by Klopp.

It seems United fans are beginning to see the end of their team’s recent unimpressive performances after Solskjaer’s men put up a commendable display in yesterday’s 1-1 stalemate with Liverpool at Old Trafford.

If they maintain such performance throughout the remaining matches in the season, they will definitely be among the top-four clubs.

To some off-the-pitch issues, young midfielder Angel Gomes is closed to extending his stay with the 20-time Premier League champions following his promotion to the first-team squad.

Loading...

The midfielder was involved in United’s pre-season tour prior to the start of the season and Solskjaer decided not to loan him to interested suitors.

The player, who made his senior debut at the age of 16, has played just three games this season in all competitions and the Red Devils are set to award a new deal.

According to a well-known journalist Fabrizio Romano via his Twitter account, the Red Devils hierarchy are in talks with the youngster and he could be awarded a new deal in the coming days.

“He’s close to extending his contract with Man United__ more on next days… #MUFC” he wrote on his verified Twitter account.

However, it remains to be seen if the youngster won’t be sent on a loan deal in January as he might find it hard to get regular game-time under Solskjaer should United sign new midfielders in the winter transfer window.
