Manchester City morning news: City with unique gesture for fans, Jenkinson confident

Etihad Stadium

A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester City.

Manchester City will seek compensation for their fans who lost money planning a trip to Russia for the game against CSKA Moscow, which they weren’t able to attend.

City are requesting compensation from UEFA after home fans were present during the game even though it was meant to be a behind closed doors match.

City fans were banned from going to the match as part of the punishment for CSKA with some planning arrangements before that decision was made by UEFA.

On loan West Ham defender Carl Jenkinson says he’s confident his loan side can beat Manchester City this weekend.

The Arsenal owned player cites West Ham’s performance against Liverpool as the reason for his confidence.

“I think we've shown we can beat the big clubs already this season with the Liverpool result. We know what we're capable of. Man City are flying at the moment, they're a world class team so nobody is kidding themselves because we know it is going to be a difficult game,” he said.

Pablo Zabaleta says Manchester City are a better team than they have shown so far this season.

City are chasing Chelsea in the Premier League and have just two points from three games in the Champions League.

“It’s not good enough for this team to only draw here. We are much better than we are showing in this competition. For us to go through now, it is very complicated. It will be hard for us to qualify for the round of 16,” said the Argentine.
