Manchester City under pressure against Manchester United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley questions Manchester City's recent form following their latest slip up in a 2-nil loss to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup.

How quickly things can change. Ten days ago, Manchester United were the listing ship heading for stormy waters. Having required a late Daley Blind goal to salvage a point against West Bromwich Albion, what possible hope did they have against Chelsea and then Manchester City?

City had just annihilated Tottenham and, while they suffered the indignity of allowing a two goal lead to slip in Russia that ended in a 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, they had West Ham and Newcastle as...

Manchester United fan carves Louis van Gaal, Manuel Pellegrini pumpkins

With both Halloween and, more importantly, the first Manchester derby of the season now within spitting distance, a football fan from Lancashire has successfully spliced the two together like some kind of ungodly lab experiment gone awry.

Simon McMinnis, who comes down firmly on the United side of the Manc divide, has spent the majority of his week so far creating jack-o'-lantern effigies of the two managers going head-to-head at the Etihad on Sunday using two enormous 15kg pumpkins he purchased...

Ineffectual across the board, Man City falter in the Capital One Cup

ESPN FC's Craig Burley questions Manchester City's recent form following their latest slip up in a 2-nil loss to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup.

Manchester City followed up a dreary second half in Moscow and a shambolic performance at West Ham by producing something even less appetizing to go out of the Capital One Cup that they won in such captivating style last season. With Manchester United on the threshold, City have chosen the worst possible moment to display that they are only human after all.

1. City deserved to go out

The previous team to retain the League Cup, in its many guises, came from Manchester. Now Manchester City cannot strip Manchester United of that distinction. The holders are out, and deservedly. Newcastle may have lulled everyone into a false sense of security by naming a second-string side, but City were decidedly second-best in...

Even with the return of Luis Suarez for Barcelona, Real Madrid dominated to win the season's first Clasico 3-1. Atletico continued their winning ways versus Getafe and are also firmly in La Liga title picture.

League Cup gives Manchester City the chance to stabilise a stuttering start

Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini spoke to press following his side's surprising loss to West Ham United and noted that his side had their chances and were unlucky not to come away with the win.

It's been a bit of a stuttered start for Manchester City as defending champions. It might be too early to draw comparisons to their 2012-13 season, but there are one or two alarm bells starting to be dusted off and ready to be sounded. Although that's easily true of any campaign at the Etihad, it's probably fair to say Blues fans are worriers.

That said, the start to the season wouldn't have been stuttered but for the defeats to both Stoke and West Ham. Away from those two matches, the opening to...
