JAMIE CARRAGHER labelled Harry Kane’s performance in Spurs’ dramatic 3-2 win over City as his best of the season.

The England forward was instrumental up-top for the North London club scoring two at the Etihad including a thrilling last minute winner.

Pep suggested that his failed summer transfer target is the reason why Spurs secured all three points.

Guardiola said: “Tottenham have a lot of quality, they give the ball to Harry Kane. They are really good up front.”

Having missed out on Kane, Barcelona wonderkid Nico Gonzalez is next on Guardiola’s shopping list.

The 20-year-old broke into the first team this season which has attracted the attention of the City boss, but his £500 million release clause could be a stumbling block in Pep’s pursuit.

Elsewhere, Marcelo Bielsa has decided he will walk away the moment he feels it is for the good of the club.

The Leeds boss is yet to be offered a new contract for the Yorkshire club leaving fears that his four-year-tenure at Leeds will soon come to an end.

    Never before, in nine previous meetings during Guardiola’s time in charge, has the star striker found the net.

    It also proved why the Spanish head coach was so keen to sign the England international last summer

  • Starting Au new

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored his first goal for Barcelona since joining from Arsenal.

    The 32-year-old Gabon international scampered onto a long ball over the top in the 23rd minute of a LaLiga game against Valencia on Sunday.

  • No Kidd-ing

    Kidderminster Harriers’ FA Cup hero Matt Preston is being treated in hospital after suffering a ‘serious injury’ during a game against Alfreton Town.

    The 26-year-old, who was named man of the match in Kidderminster’s 2-1 FA Cup fourth round defeat to West Ham two weeks ago, was injured following a challenge in the 25th minute of their National League North match on Saturday.

    Medics worked on him for 25 minutes on the pitch before the game was abandoned.

    Preston was then taken to hospital by ambulance as he received more treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

    X-rays later showed he has potentially suffered a double leg break.

    On Sunday afternoon Preston posted a picture of him giving a thumbs up from his hospital bed.

  • Ooh ahh Cantona

    Man United legend Roy Keane hilariously revealed Eric Cantona was ‘really good on a night out’ while live on air.

    Cantona played for both Manchester United and Leeds, with the two teams facing off in a grudge Premier League clash on Sunday.

    And during the build up to kick off Sky Sports showed a package of Cantona, in which the Frenchman was enjoying a cold pint.

    Keane though was surprised by his choice of drink, as he cracked a smile while sharing stories of their good times guzzling endless bottles of bubbly.

    He said: “As I said [he was] a brilliant personality in the dressing room, when you’re travelling with him. A good guy, classy guy.

    “And as I said, really, really good on a night out as well.

    “I’m surprised we saw him drinking a pint, when we used to go out there was always champagne, he’s obviously made a few bob in his time at United.”

  • James snubs Shaw’s handshake

    Leeds winger Dan James refused to shake hands with his old Manchester United pal Luke Shaw after the left-back checked up on him.

    With James down on the deck following a tackle during Leeds vs Manchester United, Shaw came over to offer his hand.

    But the Leeds man SNUBBED Shaw’s outstretched peace offering, much to the bemusement of the England star.

    James looked at his hand and chose not to take it, with Shaw left red-faced after being completely blanked by the Welsh winger.

    The 24-year-old, who spent two unsuccessful years at Old Trafford, simply turned away in spite after taking a blow to the face.

    He went down and it was immediately clear that a nasty gash had formed on his forehead.

    The Leeds medics raced on to treat him and Koch was able to carry on after having his head bandaged up.

    But not before he changed both his shirt AND shorts as blood had dripped onto them.

    Derek Chisora couldn’t resist taking a cheeky dig at Noel Gallagher at the Brook vs Khan fight after Man City lost to Tottenham.

    Gallagher was discussing the fight with talkSPORT when Chisora interjected and rubbed salt into Gallagher’s wounds by chanting “Tottenham” three times.

  • Schneiderlin expresses United regret

    Morgan Schneiderlin has expressed his regret at leaving Man United to join Everton.

    The midfielder wished persevered at Old Trafford like ex-United star Ander Herrera.

    Herrera battled for his spot and his performances earned him a move to PSG, while Schneiderlin went to Nice after a spell with the Toffees.

    He reflected to Sports Witness: “I regretted it very quickly. Even if it went very well at Everton, when you play for Manchester United, when you’re at a club like that, it’s not for a moment of doubt that you have to question everything.

    “Look at Ander Herrera: the first year I arrived, he was on the bench; he persevered, and today he is at PSG.”

  • Marc my words

    Leeds legend Tony Cascarino reckons the Whites’ boss Marco Bielsa is a great fit for Man United.

    He told talkSPORT: “I personally love his brand of football. I think he’d be an incredible fit at Manchester United.

    Cascarino’s theory will get put to the test today when the Yorkshire side take on the Red Devils.

  • Drop the mic

    Micah Richards told Jamie Carragher to ‘behave himself’ as the pair had a back and forth on Sky Sports last night.

    The pundit duo had just witnessed Tottenham’s stunning 3-2 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad.

    Coupled with Liverpool’s 3-1 win over strugglers Norwich earlier in the day, the result saw City fall to just six points above the Reds – with Jurgen Klopp’s side boasting a game in hand.

    With momentum threatening to shift, Sky host Kelly Cates asked Richards, 33, if yesterday’s matches had made him ‘feel differently’ about the state of the title race.

    He replied: “Well, everyone kept asking me… it’s never over.”

    Jubilant Carragher then cheekily cut in: “You said it was over weeks ago!”

    Laughing at the interruption, Richards hit back: “Behave yourself, Jamie!”

  • What a surprise

    Blackburn’s clash with Millwall was called off to the surprise of the players who were already warming up, writes ALAN NIXON.

    Ref Geoff Eltringham ruled the pitch was not fit to use at 2.15 after sleet fell for a couple of hours.

    The Ewood Park surface had been cleared earlier ahead of a 12.30 inspection, but the official felt there was too much risk in the build-up to kick-off.

    Fans from both clubs were at the ground and had to head home in disbelief.

    Rovers chief executive Steve Waggott said: “I’m so disappointed. It was all hands to the pump and we cleared the pitch.

    “The ref thought it was playable at 12.30 if we got the snow off. We thought we had done enough.”

  • Bielsa’s future in doubt

    Marcelo Bielsa will walk away from Leeds the moment he decides it is for the good of the club, writes PHIL THOMAS.

    And there are fears the Argentine manager has already decided to end his four-year Elland Road reign in just three months’ time.

    Bielsa insists he will know when to go while club insiders acknowledge a noticeable change recently.

    He has yet to be offered another one-year contract and on Friday he again dodged questions about his plans, saying: “It is not a subject we should talk about at this moment.”

    Yet, while he remains as committed as ever to securing Leeds’ place in the Premier League, sources close to Bielsa hint this will be his final campaign in charge.

    Bielsa has a reputation for driving his players to the limit in training and is one of the most meticulous bosses in football.

    Players who have worked with him admit his methods are brutal and the most demanding in the game but they also have a shelf life.

  • Gon the move

    Pep Guardiola eye on wonderkid Nico Gonzalez, whose dad used to be a youth coach at Manchester City, writes PHIL THOMAS.

    Gonzalez, 20, who broke into the Barcelona first team this season, has a huge £500million release clause but only earns around £10,000-a-week.

    Barca are not out of the woods financially and have delayed a number of contract renewals — including Gonzalez.

    The midfielder’s father Fran is pals with Pep from their LaLiga playing days while the clubs are on good terms after Ferran Torres’ move from City to Barca in December.

    Gonzalez has 20 monthsleft on his deal and City are poised if Barca elect to cash in this summer.

  • Toon legend passes away

    Former Newcastle coach Steve Black has passed away aged 64.

    Blackie played a big role in the psychology side of Kevin Keegan’s Entertainers era and iconically trained the players on Tynemouth beach. 

    He was also part of the club’s backroom staff during the 2015/16 season.

    The Geordie also had a stint in Premiership rugby with the Newcastle Falcons, where he helped mentor World Cup-winning England fly-half Jonny Wilkinson.

    In his time at the Falcons, he played a leading role in Newcastle’s promotion to the Premiership in 1996 and their title win in 1998.

    Black’s all-round skillset also led to him being offered a job by Graham Henry, New Zealand’s World Cup-winning coach who was in charge of Wales at the time.

  • Ed-ing for a clash

    Edinson Cavani could’ve bumped into his Man City rivals Jack Grealish and John Stones while watching the Brook vs Khan spectacle.

  • Arsenal show Morata interest

    The former Chelsea forward is currently on loan at Juventus, who are not looking at a permanent switch.

    And according to Tuttomercarto, the Gunners have made him one of their targets going into the summer.

  • Man United open to Ronaldo exit

    Man United will NOT stand in Cristiano Ronaldo’s way if he demands to quit this summer.

    The Red Devils face a huge battle to even reach the Champions League during another disappointing season.

    Ronaldo has made it clear of his frustrations over their inability to fight for the Premier League title.

    And according to the Mirror, United will now not stand in his way if he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.

    The 37-year-old would still have one-year left on his Red Devils’ contract, but would still let him go.

  • Man of the hour

    Man United will have to offer Monaco at least £40m to regain pole position in the race to sign Benoit Badiashile.

    United had a £22m bid for the France Under-21 defender rejected in the summer of 2020.

    The Old Trafford club remain interested in Badiashile but now face stiffer competition and Monaco can be confident of generating a bidding war for their latest young star.

    West Ham approached the Ligue 1 club about the 6ft 4ins centre back in January.

    Then Newcastle failed to persuade Monaco to sell with an offer of £33m for the 20 year old.

  • Man United plan Carvalho swoop

    Man United are reportedly planning to hijack rivals Liverpool’s transfer pursuit of Fulham star Fabio Carvalho.

    The Reds seemed certain to clinch the defender’s signature in January’s transfer window but a move fell through at the last minute.

    And the Red Devils are eager to pounce on the Reds’ fumble this summer, according to the Daily Star.

    The Star claim United sent scouts to watch Carvalho in action in the Cottager’s fourth round tie against Man City.

    And there were so impressed by the 19-year-old that they viewed him twice more after with the hopes of bringing him to Old Trafford when the season ends.

  • Rolling back the years

    Rio Ferdinand’s preparing for Man United’s game against Leeds today by watching highlights of his two former sides playing each other when he was a Red Devil.

    The former England star moved to Elland Road from West Ham in 2000, spending two years in Yorkshire before departing for Old Trafford.

    In the footage, the defender’s seen donning United’s black and red kit when they were sponsored by Vodafone while comfortably driving the ball forward towards his team-mates under no pressure.
