Old boy news

His Leicester side may have secured their play-off place on Saturday, but today wasn't a good day for Nobby Solano, arrested in Gosforth in the early hours of the morning on suspicion of rape.

To add injury to insult, he dislocated his shoulder at Arsenal and has been ruled out for City's crucial run-in.

In happier news, Villa's James Milner - scorer of a disputed winner in Sunday's Second City derby from the penalty spot - has been named as the PFA's Young Player of the Year.
