Manchester derby: History of cup clashes

Real Madrid go top in the Power Rankings; Sevilla second, Benfica third

The key stats ahead of the weekend's La Liga action, including an impressive unbeaten run for Zidane's Real Madrid.
Real Madrid's flurry of goals and wins make them a perfect choice to top our ranks this week.

Real Madrid's ruthless week of goals and glory makes them our new No. 1 in Shaka Hislop's Power Rankings, with Sevilla leaping up to second place.

1. Real Madrid (+3)

It's been a good week for Zinedine Zidane's side. After four consecutive draws from Sept. 21 to Oct. 2, Los Blancos have racked up four straight wins. In the past seven days, Cristiano Ronaldo & Co. notched a 2-1 home win vs. the always difficult Athletic Bilbao before putting SEVEN goals past Cultural Leonesa in the Copa...

Benfica continue to set records in Portugal, here's how they're doing it

Coach Rui Vitoria was on the verge of being fired in 2015 but has turned Benfica around in the past year.

On Sunday night Benfica made the short trip to Belenenses, winning 2-0 to break the all-time record for consecutive away victories in the Portuguese top flight. It was the 16th straight triumph for the Eagles on the road, toppling a record that had dated back to Jimmy Hagan's Benfica side of 1973, a team powered by goal-scoring extraordinaire Eusebio who had 40 league goals in that campaign. Today's Benfica has no Eusebio but their level of dominance, especially against the weaker sides in the...

West Ham's London Stadium issues laid bare after Chelsea trouble

Liam Twomey describes the scenes at London Stadium after violence escalated between West Ham and Chelsea supporters in the EFL Cup.

The London Stadium's first major test collapsed into near-chaos. West Ham's 2-1 win over Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night saw Slaven Bilic's team put in their best performance at their new home and yet the club was left defending a night of ugly crowd scenes -- with seven arrests made so far and a Football Association investigation launched.

Without the outbreak of violence that took place in the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand as Chelsea fans made for the exit just before full-time, the evening...

Former title rivals Spurs, Leicester face off in clash of contrasting centre-backs

ESPN FC's Stewart Robson and Steve Nicol say Spurs are struggling to score without Harry Kane in the lineup.

They meet as opposites and equivalents. When Tottenham host Leicester on Saturday, it is not merely a reunion of the 2015-16 Premier League title rivals. It's a clash of ideas about how to prevent goals from being scored. The match should offer an example of completely contrasting centre-backs, but with the caveat that last season showed that very different methods can both be successful.

Leicester's Wes Morgan and Robert Huth are the throwback duo, all brawn and bulk. Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld...

Manchester derby: Cup clashes since 2010 between United and City

The ESPN FC crew break down how important the EFL Round of 16 match is for both Manchester United and Manchester City.

The Manchester derby has seen some great games outside the Premier League in recent years. Here are five since 2010 when United and City went toe-to-toe.

Jan. 19, 2010 - League Cup semifinal, first leg: Manchester City 2-1 Manchester United

Carlos Tevez tormented his old club (and former teammate Gary Neville in particular) as City looked to end their 34-year wait for silverware. Neville had criticised the Argentina forward in the build-up after he had moved across the city in the summer, saying...

Manchester United vs. Manchester City: Derby day tale of the tape

The ESPN FC crew break down how important the EFL Round of 16 match is for both Manchester United and Manchester City.

Manchester's expected dominance of English football is not going to plan. United are licking their wounds after a 4-0 thrashing at Chelsea, while City's 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday followed their own 4-0 humbling, suffered at Barcelona last Wednesday. Pep Guardiola's City have now gone five matches without a win, while Jose Mourinho's United have won just one of their last four.

At such a troubled time, perhaps the last thing either manager wants is to come up against their arch-rival, and...
