Manchester City are baffled by a Fifa investigation into the club, which is believed to be looking at the way they sign young players. Football's world governing body have revealed that they are looking into possible breaches of their rules by City but have refused to give any details of the subject. City have denied that they know anything about the matter and say they have not been approached by Fifa regarding any investigation.
So what does a manager do when his Manchester City team produces a brilliant six-goal attacking display, but in the next game Leroy Sane is simply sensational? The problem for Pep Guardiola does not come on Saturday, when Crystal Palace arrive at the Etihad Stadium, or even next Wednesday, with the visit of Shakhtar Donetsk. No, his real headache will kick in when he sits down to pick his eleven for the trip to Chelsea at the end of next week.
Manchester City received a huge boost as Ilkay Gundogan's knee injury was diagnosed as a sprain. Blues fans – and teammates – feared that the unlucky Germany international had suffered a severe setback during Wednesday night's Carabao Cup win over West Brom. But examinations today have revealed that he suffered a sprain to the left knee, which was not the one he seriously damaged last season. He is expected to return to training in a matter of days.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
