Manchester City are 'highly likely' to receive a Premier League points deduction as further punishment for their "serious breaches" of UEFA Financial Fair Play regulations.

On Friday night, the Premier League champions were hit with a two-season ban from European competition having committed offences in relation to Financial Fair Play and UEFA's club licensing.

According to The Independent, the decision is expected to force the Premier League to hand out a punishment of their own due to licensing issues, meaning that a points deduction in England's top flight is likely to occur.

Pep Guardiola's side are currently 22 points behind leaders Liverpool in the Premier League table, while they sit one point clear of third-placed Leicester City.

Should the Citizens be unsuccessful in overturning their Champions League suspension then Pep Guardiola will allegedly review his position as head coach, while Belgian attacker Kevin De Bruyne could also reportedly seek an exit.

The four-time Premier League champions will be looking to bounce back from successive defeats to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur when they welcome West Ham United on February 19.

Inter Milan 'want Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to play alongside Romelu Lukaku'

Inter Milan are reportedly interested in a summer deal for Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The 30-year-old will see his contract at the Emirates Stadium expire at the end of next season, and it has been widely suggested that the Gabon international wants to seek pastures new this summer.

Barcelona have been strongly linked with the attacker, but Inter's Lautaro Martinez has allegedly now emerged as the Spanish club's leading target in the final third of the field.

Martinez's expected exit will open up a spot alongside Romelu Lukaku at San Siro, and according to The Mirror, I Nerazzurri boss Antonio Conte is determined to bring Aubameyang to the club.

The report, however, claims that the Gunners are likely to demand £70m for the former Borussia Dortmund forward this summer despite the fact that he will be out of contract in 2021.

Aubameyang has scored 16 times in 27 appearances for Mikel Arteta's side this season, including 14 in 23 Premier League outings during a strong campaign.

Charlie Nicholas expects Manchester United to lose at Chelsea

Former Arsenal forward Charlie Nicholas has backed Chelsea to overcome Manchester United in Monday's key Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League table, six points ahead of eighth-placed United, who have only picked up one league success since the turn of the year.

Nicholas has said that Frank Lampard's side will need to 'get the basics right' on Monday evening if they are to triumph but has predicted a 2-1 success for the capital outfit.

"Manchester United will have got some of their players fit during the break. They were excellent when they went to Manchester City twice, but they are showing no consistency. This is why people are still backing, and hoping for, Mauricio Pochettino to come in," Nicholas told Sky Sports News.

"I do think Chelsea will have enough, but they will need to focus on getting their style right and doing the basics effectively."

United have already beaten the Blues twice this season, following a 4-0 success on the opening weekend of the 2019-20 Premier League season with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup.
