The hosts could justifiably claim victory was deserved after forcing veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer to make several fine saves. But the Foxes were denied three penalties – with two appeals looking particularly strong – and defeat was harsh on the hard-working bottom side. Luck was therefore on Pellegrini’s side after the build-up to the game had been dominated by criticism of his tactics in damaging losses to Barcelona and Liverpool and speculation over his future. The Chilean responded strongly to that by dropping captain Vincent Kompany to the bench while Samir Nasri and Fernandinho did not feature in the squad. Edin Dzeko and Pablo Zabaleta also found themselves among the substitutes in the reshuffle, while £25million January signing Wilfried Bony was handed his first start. The changes initially appeared to do little to fire up the side. No spark came from the crowd either with the atmosphere subdued following the last two dispiriting results. What flicker of life they did show in the opening stages came from Jesus Navas, who looked in the mood after being left out at Anfield on Sunday. But it was Leicester who threatened first, with Jeff Schlupp completely wrong-footing Eliaquim Mangala on the counter-attack. Martin Demichelis came across to help out his partner. Leicester then had their first two penalty appeals in quick succession. Schlupp was unlucky not to get a decision in his favour when it appeared he was impeded by Bony. Andrej Kramaric then went down as he raced with Joe Hart to meet Riyad Mahrez’s superb through-ball but the England goalkeeper did get a touch before the pair collided. Navas was berated by Yaya Toure after misplacing a pass but he was not deterred, firing in a good cross from which Bony forced Mark Schwarzer to block. Navas then tested Schwarzer himself with a good effort from the edge of the box before Silva teed up Bony with a clever ball, only for the Ivorian to slice high and wide. City were performing only in fits and starts but they seized the advantage on the stroke of half-time as Aleksandar Kolarov crossed from the left. Bony was unable to take advantage but Silva pounced, tapping in from close range after his initial effort was partially blocked by Wes Morgan. Bony made an even bigger mess of a chance early in the second half, racing into the perfect position to meet Navas’ pull-back but completely miscuing and hitting the corner flag. Leicester were again unlucky not to be awarded a penalty when Fernando brought Kramaric down, but referee Robert Madley ruled the offence just outside the area. Replays suggested it may have been just inside and Kramaric was denied again as his free-kick was deflected agonisingly wide. City wanted to kill off the game but Schwarzer kept the Foxes in it with a fine save to keep out a Sergio Aguero header and did even better to claw away a long-range Toure strike. The hosts had a let-off when Mahrez got away a shot and a slight deflection took it past Hart and onto the post but City responded with Toure and Kolarov going close. Bony’s frustrating debut had been brought to an end after 72 minutes and his replacement, Milner, did finally end the contest when he turned in a Navas cross in the closing moments. Silva pounced from close range to put City ahead after an unconvincing start at the Etihad Stadium and Milner came off the bench to settle nerves in the last minute. It was far from a fluent display from City but the result will at least take some of the heat off manager Manuel Pellegrini after a testing few days. Press Association David Silva and James Milner struck late in each half as under-fire reigning champions Manchester City grabbed a scrappy but much-needed 2-0 win over Leicester in the Barclays Premier League.

The deal would push forward Twitter’s music strategy, one that’s largely stagnated since the failure of Twitter #Music. SoundCloud, considered “YouTube for audio,” has 250 million monthly active listeners, a number comparable to Twitter’s user base. There’s undoubtedly some overlap there, but a SoundCloud acquisition could give Twitter an opportunity to diverge from its core product and provide a new sort of standalone social service without having to build it from scratch. SoundCloud is already the most popular music sharing service on Twitter, Recode notes. Twitter users share more links to SoundCloud than any other service, including Spotify. Both companies declined to comment. Update 5/20 1:30PM: The Wall Street Journal reports that Twitter backed out of the SoundCloud deal because “the numbers didn’t add up,” citing a person familiar with the matter.Image courtesy of Eric Wahlforss on Flickr

TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Newcastle offer Benitez new contractby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United have offered manager Rafa Benitez a new one-year contract offer.The Times says there has been fresh discussion about overcoming the current impasse, and a front runner is the possibility of a 12-month extension on the £6m-a-year deal the former Real Madrid and Liverpool manager signed in May 2016.Owner Mike Ashley, who is keen to sell the club and has called on would-be purchasers, including Peter Kenyon, to meet his asking price of between £280-£300m this month, remains unlikely to strengthen heavily during January without agreement.If Benitez agrees to the new deal then the tight hold on club’s finances is likely to be unlocked, although there remains a fundamental disagreement over how that money should be spent; Ashley wants young players whose value will rise and Benitez wants experience.However, without the confirmation of Benitez staying beyond the end of the season, Newcastle are unlikely to sanction the spending spree their supporters have been calling on for three transfer windows.

It was offside. Our camera was in line with Harry Kane.”Offside with the head, the knee. Offside. It was really important the linesman carried on running, he had a big impact on our defenders.”I don’t think English referees are able to use the system.”If you are not sure with the system, you have to follow the ball and at the end of the action decide. But he stopped it and didn’t follow the ball – for our defenders it was offside. I don’t know about the goalkeeper but sure the defenders.”I think they have to study the system.”It’s very strange in the Premier League there isn’t VAR and in Carabao Cup there is the system. It’s very strange for us, the players and referees.”
