Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho signs contract extension

Sergio Aguero and Pep Guardiola

Fernandinho has become the second Manchester City player in 24 hours to commit his future to the club after signing an extension which will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2020.

"My only aim is to help the team and give all I can for this Club".

Pep Guardiola's side have been almost unstoppable this season, sitting 12 points clear at the top of the table ahead of their crosstown rivals.

Benitez must be looking to add some steel to his midfield and Ndiaye certainly has the calibre to do the needful. You'd expect a lot more from him at home to Newcastle on Saturday though with the league leaders desperate for a result to reinforce their authority.

After the anarchy of Wednesday night's FA Cup third round replay against Norwich, Chelsea will be without Alvaro Morata and Pedro when they head to Brighton this Saturday.

The Argentine does enjoy playing the Magpies as well, as his five-goal haul against them two seasons ago would suggest.

Anyway ... Back to Man City's contract business.

Newcastle will actually enter this match having won their last two away Premier League matches, and they have some huge games coming up as they prepare to tackle the likes of Burnley and Crystal Palace over the next few weeks.

The absence of Santi Cazorla and the recent sale of Francis Coquelin means Arsenal have to look to the future of their midfield and add enough depth to be able to compete in a long season.

Pep Guardiola has always said as much, telling reporters as far back as November that it was premature to talk of lifting the title.

The mentality of Manchester City fans is something that could fascinate psychologists for eternity.

The Brazilian, whose contract was set to expire this summer, said, "The main thing for me is going to be to stay here and try to win as many trophies as we can".

Manchester City's unbeaten streak was ended last weekend by Liverpool.

Fabian Delph is sidelined for the clash, meaning Danilo will slot in at left-back, while Vincent Kompany, Gabriel Jesus, Benjamin Mendy and Phil Foden remain injured. By the end of the season they had 91 points - and won the league by eight points.
