A simple guide to how UEFA's new financial regulations work.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is trying to keep things on an even keel despite victory over rivals Manchester City.
Manchester City travel to Anfield on Sunday in a showdown with Liverpool which could decide the Premier League title.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists he is not worried by the possibility of the club being sanctioned by UEFA for breaching financial fair play (FFP) rules.
City are among a number of clubs, including Paris St Germain, that are having their cases considered this week by UEFA's Club Financial Control Body's (CFCB) which will decide if they have committed breaches of the break-even rules.
Asked if he was worried about the possibility of sanctions, he said:
– MAN CITY MANAGER MANUEL PELLEGRINI.
No. First of all it is important to know what UEFA will have to say and then we can have an opinion.
It is important for the club but I am not the person in charge of those kinds of things.
Manchester City will find out this week whether they will face sanctions over possible breaches of new financial rules put in place by European football's governing body UEFA.
UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) will meet on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss 76 cases, including Manchester City.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that City will be found guilty by the CFCB. However, the club won't face a transfer ban, as the newspaper suggests. It is not one of the sanctions available to UEFA.
Any punishment would be decided in May.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini does not believe his team's controversial second goal against Southampton changed the outcome of the game.
The match officials failed to spot David Silva was in an offside position when he received the ball in the build up to Samir Nasri's goal.
City went on to score two more times at the Etihad Stadium as they won 4-1 in the Premier League.
Manchester City face Southampton in the early kick off at the Etihad Stadium without Sergio Aguero.
However the City manager Manuel Pellegrini says the striker should be back from injury for their next Premier League game against their title rivals Liverpool.
Manchester City's top scorer Sergio Aguero does not intend to take short cuts in his recovery from injury.
Aguero, who has scored 26 goals for City this term, has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in the Champions League loss at Barcelona on March 12.
It is his third setback of an otherwise outstanding season following previous calf and hamstring problems.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini hinted last week that Aguero could be fit to face Southampton this Saturday but the player himself - also crucial to Argentina's World Cup campaign - is cautious.
The 25-year-old told DirecTV: "With this recovery I am trying to do my best to be able to play again, but I cannot do it in a hurry.
"I do think to myself if something happens now, I will lose the rest of the Premier League season and the World Cup."
