If there is one thing that still riles Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, it is the suggestion that his English Premier League success is down to money.Manchester City were cleared on Monday of breaking UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The court overturned the club’s two-year European ban.But the club’s manager was in a fiery mood as he railed against the idea that cash was behind the club’s two Premier League titles.For the Spaniard, who won back-to-back titles in 2018 and 2019, Manchester City are by no means unusual when it comes to spending big on players.Guardiola, whose side are still fighting this season for their first UEFA Champions League title, said Manchester United and Arsenal had also invested heavily to win previous Premier League titles.“When Chelsea start (started) to win Premier Leagues, they (had) invested more money than the other ones,” he told reporters. “I’m a good manager, but I don’t win titles if I don’t have good players and good players are expensive. But all the clubs spend a lot of money.”Manchester City have spent more than a billion pounds on acquiring players since the club was bought by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan in 2008.Guardiola took over the team in 2016 and has spent heavily in the transfer market, including nine players who cost more than 45 million pounds ($56.46 million) each.He said: “We can spend as much money as our chairman or our owners want, but always, always in the Financial Fair Play rules and we show it, we were there.“We were exonerated for something we were accused of, all the time. That is the reality. “When we won, it was on the pitch. All the good things we have done, all the bad things we have done it was on the pitch, in the grass, in the green, there.”Guardiola pointed out that neighbours Manchester United outbid them to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and Harry Maguire from Leicester City and highlighted big-spending from other eras.The former FC Barcelona manager said the pressure of the UEFA investigation had brought him closer to Manchester City.He said: “I love this club. I love, because I know the people here and I’m working (with them) for a long time. We have our history.RelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says “I don’t know if it’s better or worse, it doesn’t matter, it’s our history.

“We’re going through a patch where it’s a bit more difficult, but part of a successful season is how you deal with that,” the Frenchman said. “The spirit of the players is unbelievably focused. There’s a great desire. “But let’s be serious: if after the first game against Aston Villa I’d told you we’d be top of the league at Christmas, you’d have told me I was absolutely mad. “We are where we are. The last three games have been a bit more difficult, but we have played Everton, Man City and Chelsea.” Arsenal were unable to break down a stubborn Chelsea and Wenger believes the 6-3 loss at Manchester City played on his players’ minds. “We have to find a way to sort that problem out,” Wenger said. “I feel we were a bit edgy because we conceded six goals at Man City and it played a part in our heads at the start of the game. “The fact that Chelsea gave us that problem, we want to be strong enough to deal with that.” Arsene Wenger is content with Arsenal’s Christmas Day position level on points with Barclays Premier League leaders Liverpool despite being frustrated by the goalless draw with Chelsea which ended the Gunners’ hopes of taking sole possession of top spot. Press Association Decisions went against Arsenal as John Obi Mikel and Ramires escaped serious punishment for high tackles on the ankle of Mikel Arteta. Mourinho believes referee Mike Dean had a good game; Wenger disagreed. The Arsenal boss said: “I don’t think he had a great game at all.” Wenger declined the opportunity to elaborate and did not criticise Dean for failing to take clear action on Mikel’s tackle. “I have to watch that again on television,” Wenger said. “On the pitch it looked bad, but the referee was in a good position.” Wenger felt Arsenal deserved a spot-kick in the first half when Willian appeared to trip Theo Walcott. He said: “I think it was a penalty. Honestly. If I’m wrong, I apologise. “I’ve not seen it again, but it looked like a penalty. They defended well, were well organised, and we didn’t find our zippy movements to play between the lines as we can.” Mourinho was content with a point, but Wenger wanted more. He added: “Overall, they were happy with a point and we weren’t. But we couldn’t take our few chances we created. “We dropped two points tonight and that’s what we want to focus, to win the next game (at West Ham) on Boxing Day.” Arsenal began their league campaign with a 3-1 home loss to Aston Villa which saw Wenger’s position come under scrutiny. Wenger’s men are now without a win in four games, but trail Liverpool in the standings only on goal difference.
“The owners have been very sporting,” said McCreery. “She seems in good form and the conditions won’t bother her. “I don’t particularly think she needs soft ground ground to be seen at her best, but she seems to handle it a lot better than others. “It could be very tacky by the weekend and we know she goes through it. “We don’t know that much about her sire as yet, but I’ve a few and they seem like milers to me. “She was staying on strongly the other day, though, and later in the season she might get a bit further than that. “We’ll see how she gets on this weekend and then take it from there.” David Wachman’s Legatissimo and Jim Bolger’s Lucida, first and second in the Guineas at Newmarket, were among the fillies taken out at the forfeit stage. Press Association The Fast Company filly has been second on both of her outings in Group Three company this season and, in an open year, connections felt it was worth taking the plunge. Having chased home Dermot Weld’s Stormfly over seven furlongs in April, she turned that form around but was beaten by Kissed By Angels a month later. A total of 21 fillies are still in contention, including Aidan O’Brien’s Kissed By Angels. O’Brien could also run Found, Outstanding, Qualify and Wedding Vow. Jessica Harrington has two strong candidates in Jack Naylor and Bocca Baciata while Jim Bolger has left in Pleascach, Mainicin and Steip Amach. Mick Channon’s Malabar ran well to finish fourth at Newmarket while Mick Halford’s Raydara was one of the best juveniles last season. Dermot Weld has a couple of interesting contenders in Joailliere and Stormfly. James Given’s pair of Pastoral Girl and Russian Punch and the Clive Brittain-trained Teosroyal are others still engaged. Willie McCreery feels Devonshire deserves her place in the line up after she was supplemented by Godolphin for Sunday’s Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas at the Curragh.
