Now they will have to do it without De Bruyne. City will be without their star until the end of February, at least, due to a muscle injury. The great moment of names like Gündogan or Phil Foden, top scorer so far this season with 9 goals, should help make up for the Belgian’s absence.

West Brom is not going through its best moment, before last with 11 points and six from salvation, but the ‘baggies’ already know what it is to score against City. They drew a draw from their last visit to the Etihad. Even so, they have won only one of their last nine Premier matches, and accumulate 18 matches in a row without beating the Mancunians. 

Guardiola does not rule out that Eric Garcia will come before the summer

Sam Allardyce will recover Grant and Phillipps, while City could have Walker again, but will have in Aguero his other big loss. What Guardiola’s men will not lack will be motivation. Scoring in The Hawthorns would allow them to sleep, at least one day, at the head of the Premier League.

Arsenal seek revenge

Three days after meeting in the Fa Cup, Arsenal and Southampton meet again, this time in a Premier League match. Again at St. Mary’s Stadium. Mikel Arteta’s men succumbed by the minimum in the fourth round of the cup tournament in a match where they enjoyed several opportunities to tie Gabriel’s own goal. The Spanish coach remains in doubt as to whether he can count on Aubameyang. 

Probable lineups

West Bromwich: Johnstone; O’Shea, Ajayi, Bartley, Gibbs; Livermore, Sawyers; Snodgrass, Pereira, Gallagher; Robinson. 

Manchester City: Ederson; Cancello, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; Gündogan, Rodri, Foden; Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva.

Southampton: McCarthy; Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Vokins; Walcott, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; Ings, Adams

Fenerbahçe promotes a crowdfunding campaign to help pay Özil

Arsenal: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette

Max Noble is putting the entire system of formative football in England in check. This former player from the Fulham academy, alleges having suffered abuse and threats during his time at the West London club and claims that 150 other people have contacted him to report similar treatment in different English football clubs.

The former player told it in the British newspaper ‘The i’, where he went on to reveal how he went from being a promising winger in the quarry of the cottagers and the lower categories of the Welsh national team, to becoming a young man with many problems to fight against the anxiety and depression that he still suffers today and that led him to consider suicide: "I had depression, anxiety, all that trauma, it almost killed me. I got really depressed. I became so reclusive that I didn’t want to talk to any of my friends"

Noble said that Fulham threatened to discard him if he did not sign with an agent recommended by the club and that he was given pain relievers so that he could train and play. He also alleges that the club refused to pay for a knee operation just before his scholarship ended, and asks that clubs and football authorities ensure aftercare for the academy players who are released.

Finally, Noble even denounced racism at the Fulham Academy. The young man spoke of preferential treatment towards white soccer players and said that blacks were forced to eat lunch in a dirty locker room instead of in the canteen.

"The only thing I want to change is that if you take a boy out of school you owe him aftercare. That is all. You can’t promise them the world and then ignore them when they’re down or going through what I had to go through. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. The academy system is failing, it can be seen only by the numbers, it is failing completely" says Noble.

"Having an adult lie to children, entangle them to do something, and then suddenly withdraw all their support and say, ‘It’s your fault you didn’t make it, you didn’t work hard enough, you didn’t listen, you didn’t stay in training camp long enough, you didn’t even get there early enough … it’s a abuse scandal"he insists.

Leadership in sight without De Bruyne; Arsenal seek revenge

Noble’s intention is to end these abuses and that no child has to go through what he went through, like so many others, in England. Fulham, for their part, has already responded to the accusations by announcing that they have begun to investigate it internally: "We condemn harassment, racism and discrimination in any form and we work hard to ensure that they do not take place here. The club will investigate historical claims and contact all relevant parties" read the statement released by the West London club.

Next Tuesday at 9:15 p.m. the match of the twentieth day of the Premier League will be played, which will be measured by Southampton and Arsenal at St.
