Champions League spot within Manchester City's grasp

Champions League spot within Manchester City's grasp

Zabaleta, who is a much-loved cult hero among the City fans, admitted it had been hard to say goodbye.

Pablo Zabaleta's final home match as a Manchester City player is set to be an emotional occasion, with video montages, tributes, and a post-match presentation commemorating one of the most important figures in the club's recent history.

Manchester City moved back into third place and nearly guaranteed Champions League qualification thanks to a 3-1 home victory against West Bromwich Albion yesterday at the Etihad Stadium.

Meanwhile Reading edged into the Championship playoff final with a narrow 1-0 home win against Fulham on Tuesday, moving through 2-1 on aggregate.

PABLO Zabaleta will rightly get a hero's reception as he bids farewell to his adoring Manchester City fans at the Etihad Stadium tonight.

City and United are local rivals and have enjoyed a healthy hostility in the nine years Zabaleta has been at the club.

"Now we are in third and it's in our hands to finish third", said City manager Guardiola. "We will see what happens at the end of the season", he added.




So unless we go goal insane while winning the last two games against Sunderland and Everton, I see Man City as being the team to catch.

Manchester City centre back John Stones is fit to face West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Tuesday after recovering from a muscular problem that has kept him out of action since April 8, manager Pep Guardiola said. Dropping or drawing this game to the Baggies could cost them their UCL chances, so expect City to leave nothing on the field. It's my first year here but when I saw what I saw tonight I see what an impact he has had for this club.

Manager Tony Pulis said: "The lads have got two days off now, they need that to clear their minds".

"I will try with the club, with the players, with the staff, with the chairman, with the sporting director, to do it".

City will play Real Madrid in Los Angeles and tackle Tottenham Hotspur in Nashville.

"But the fact I have been here from day one is something that has made me very proud".
