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....

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.

Manchester City

Injury worries

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

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...

Van Gaal can instill confidence at United with Manchester derby result

Andy Cole has backed Wayne Rooney to return from suspension stronger for Manchester United in their derby against champions Manchester City.

The last time Manchester United won the Manchester derby was December 2012 and they had a knight of the realm in the dugout. As the Christmas lights go up in 2014, United fans are hoping a run of three decisive defeats comes to an end this Sunday and Louis van Gaal's record in derby matches stands them in good stead.

The Order of Orange-Nassau is the Dutch equivalent of a knighthood and is awarded to people who deserve "special appreciation for their work in Dutch society." Unlike its British...
