The challenges awaiting City and United in the Manchester derby

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes looks back through Wayne Rooney's career against Manchester City as the Red Devils prepare to take on their rivals.

Manchester City and Manchester United have shared the last four Premier League titles, but both have major problems ahead of this weekend's derby. City have gone three games without a victory while United, though they are certainly improving, still aren't entirely convincing under Louis van Gaal.

Here are three pressing concerns for either side.

Injury worries

David Silva and Yaya Toure are doubtful with knee and groin problems, respectively, and, while the loss of either would be...

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 2-0 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 2-0 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.

Three Points: Man City deservedly knocked out of Capital One Cup

ESPN FC's Craig Burley questions Manchester City's recent form following their latest slip-up in a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup.

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.

What team do you think will win La Liga?

After a late goal by Robin van Persie helped Manchester...
