Manchester Derby 50-50 Challenge: Man City vs. Man United

The ESPN FC panel discuss about which side needs the victory more ahead of the Manchester derby this weekend.

1. Assess your squad's form going into this one

David Mooney: When it comes to form, one of the most frequent demonstrations of how good Manchester City have been in recent years is the good old "it's been 18 months since the Blues didn't win in three games." That marker's been destroyed this season, since a failure to win the Manchester derby on Sunday will be the second spell of four games without a victory for 2014-15.

Since winning the league last May, City's form has dropped off a cliff. It...

Manchester United rue failure to land Man City star Vincent Kompany

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has signed a new five-year contract with the Premier League champions, while Javi Garcia is reportedly on his way to Zenit St. Petersburg.
Vincent Kompany and Manchester City look to defend their Prem title.
Vincent Kompany has become one of the finest defenders in the world at City.

Back in 2008, Manchester United legend Mark Hughes handed local rivals City one of their greatest ever players when he signed a 22-year-old Vincent Kompany for what now seems a laughable sum of just six million pounds.

When you consider that Brazilian striker Jo (now back in his homeland with Atletico Mineiro) had arrived for a fee of around 19 million pounds a month or so previous, the Kompany coup was a rare bargain at a time when Hughes spent almost 300 million pounds on players in a just year-and-a-half....

Vote for your Man City-Man Utd XI

Sunday sees two of the Premier League's most expensive and best sides, Manchester City and Manchester United, face off in a derby at the Etihad. Both squads possess a wealth of talent, but if you could pick from both teams to build your ideal XI, whom would you choose? And who would be patrolling the sidelines?

Who should play as goalkeeper?

Who should play as right-back?

Who should play as left-back?

Who should play as centre-back (1)?

Who should play as centre-back (2)?

Who should play in central midfield (1)?

Who should play in central midfield (2)?

Newcastle vs. Liverpool pits lucky Pardew against luckless Rodgers

Mario Balotelli scored for the first time in eight matches against Swansea in the Capital One Cup, but is that enough to get him firing again?

If there is one thing, just at the moment, that Alan Pardew seems to have and Brendan Rodgers appears to lack, it is good fortune.

That sounds like the faintest of praise for the Newcastle manager, but it is not meant to be. It sounds, too, like a defence of his Liverpool counterpart -- a whitewashing, an excuse -- but it is not meant to be that, either. A good manager is a lucky manager, runs the cliché. Maybe it is true, too, but it is not quite as simple as that. Football is all about...

Weekend battle: Manchester derby

Manchester City should win the majority of their games. This is because their team is better than most other teams. The romance-shattering truth is that football matches invariably end with the expected result. The moments that leave our hearts aflutter are the exception rather than the rule -- it's just that our brains rightly...

Three Points: Wright-Phillips, Red Bulls knock out Sporting KC

Bradley Wright-Phillips scored the winning goal over Sporting KC as the New York Red Bulls advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Here are three thoughts following the New York Red Bulls' impressive come-from-behind 2-1 win over defending MLS Cup champion Sporting Kansas City.

1. That's Not So Metro

The reputation of the New York MLS franchise as postseason chokers is well-earned. History does not speak well of New York playoff efforts, but this win will help salve some of that old pain. Three gilt-edge first-half chances went begging, all three of them on the head or foot of a Red Bulls player you'd expect to score --Tim...
