    Sergio Aguero was withdrawn in the 57th minute (Picture: Getty) Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is hopeful that Sergio Aguero avoided injury against Fulham but says the striker will have to be assessed in the next 24 hours. Aguero set-up Bernardo Silva to score City’s opener at Craven Cottage and then doubled his side lead on the half-hour mark. However, Aguero was withdrawn in the 57th minute and he walked slowly off the field to be replaced by Gabriel Jesus. City must tackle a hectic fixture list as they look to win an unprecedented quadruple and can ill-afford to lose ... more
  • 3 weeks When is the new Brexit leave date after Theresa May’s deal was voted down yet again? Metro
    Theresa May has had a lot on her plate to say the least (Picture: Jack Taylor/Getty Images) Another day, another dose of Brexit chaos, as Theresa May is now apparently looking at possibly putting her thrice defeated Brexit deal to a Parliamentary vote once again. Third time is famously supposed to be the charm, but apparently that does not apply to the PM, as neither her promises to resign should her deal pass, nor the EU’s guarantee of an extended deadline for triggering Article 50 were enough to entice enough MPs to vote for her Withdrawal Agreement. To add insult ... more

  • 3 weeks What is the Settled Status scheme and how to apply Metro
    (Picture: Getty) As you’ll be aware if you’ve not been living under a rock, Britain were supposed to officially exit the EU yesterday. Things haven’t quite gone to plan on that front, so it’ll bit longer, but it seems (at least at the moment) we will definitely be leaving. EU, EEA and Swiss citizens currently living here in the UK will need to apply through the Settled Status scheme post-Brexit, and applications are already open. This scheme will allow these people to continue living in the UK, working in the UK, and using the NHS and benefits system. Those who ... more
  • 3 weeks Drake swaps stadiums for Leicester nightclub to make up for cancelling 2017 gig Metro -10Ment

Drake made the stop after his Birmingham show, appearing on the club’s small stage at around 1:20 am. Making the night his official after party, Drizzy performed a slew of his recent hits including God’s Plan, Nonstop and ... more

    Bernardo Silva piled the pressure back in Liverpool (Picture: Getty) In a team boasting the likes of Lionel Messi, Xaxi and Andres Iniesta at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola had his own personal favourite in Pedro. Guardiola rejected advice from the club’s technical staff to keep Pedro at the Camp Nou and integrated him into the first-team when he made the step-up to first team manager in 2008. Pedro, bound to Guardiola by the faith shown in him when few others were willing to cast him off, was a symbol of the manager’s philosophy and repaid the manager’s loyalty by sticking almost ... more
