1. Pellegrini is safe for now

Manchester City fans briefly sung Manuel Pellegrini's name in the opening exchanges. It may be deceptive. Some sections of the club's support would prefer he left, but this was not a day to revolt. West Ham were obliging opponents and City cruised to a forgettable win.

After six defeats in nine games, sticking plasters were applied...

A match with nine minutes of time added on actually stopped as a spectacle after 70, when Manchester City's David Silva received lengthy on-pitch treatment for a nasty face injury after being cuffed by West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate. Coincidentally, Silva himself had been booked for supposedly delivering the same treatment to Winston Reid a little earlier.

The difference was that Silva's arm had brushed the West Ham man's chest and Reid had descended dramatically to the floor holding his nose in...

Manchester rivals put differences aside for night on the town

Several members of both Manchester City and Manchester United's Argentina/Spain contingent defied the interclub blockade to go out for a pleasant meal in one another's company on Sunday evening.

Along with their significant others, United's Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Victor Valdes, and City's Martin Demichelis, Pablo Zabaleta and Willy Caballero tucked themselves into their glad rags and headed into Manchester together for a bite to eat.

So much hideous denim in these photos. So much.

Premier League Golden Boot, FA Cup final, Radamel Falcao, U.S.-Mexico

The Premier League Golden Boot is up for grabs and both Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero adding to their tally today to lead the top-scorers table at 20 goals each.

Who will win the Golden Boot?

Arsenal were expected to advance vs. Reading in the FA Cup semifinals. They did, 2-1. Liverpool were also a favourite, but things ended badly...

City need a big performance against West Ham to save Pellegrini

ESPN FC's Craig Burley sounds off on the Manchester City players who wore gloves during the Manchester derby, and believes Manuel Pellegrini's side need to toughen up in order to continue their push for the top four.

The last time West Ham visited Manchester City, the home side enjoyed a triumphant afternoon as they clinched the Premier League title.

At the final whistle on Sunday, whatever the outcome of the match, the mood will be vastly different. Back then, Manuel Pellegrini was revered, and now he's on the brink of losing his job. How times have changed.

Sum up Aguero's season

It's a 9/10. His 2014-15 has been heavily weighed down by the performances of the team he represents. It has been disappointing with a capital D at City and sadly for him, his fine contribution has been lost among the debris of a badly failed title defence.

His performance in City's 4-2 trouncing at Manchester...
