City vs United: Predicting the Manchester United XI for the derby

It was honours even between Huddersfield Town and West Ham United, and Southampton and Watford, while Leicester City' first home match since the death of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha ended in a goalless draw with Burnley.

"The first half was not so good, we played like we didn't want to lose the ball i I don't want to lose the ball, but I want to keep it with the intention to do something". Once again on top of the Premier League, a goal difference of plus 29 to United's plus one tells the story of both sides contrasting fortunes so far this season.

Walker's post followed Man City's 3-1 derby win over their crosstown rivals.

He added: "We had some ups and downs in our relationship and, just before he left [in 2012], he said something that really hurt me". They beat AC Milan 2-0 at the San Siro, thanks to goals from Mario Mandzukic and, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Xherdan Shaqiri doubled Liverpool's lead in the 53rd minute, a cushioned volley into the corner from Andrew Robertson's deep cross, as last-place Fulham slumped to a seventh straight loss in all competitions.

"At other clubs I have been, at Juventus, at Barca, we had two "ships", one for the domestic league, and another for the Champions League", said Alves.

But the victory never looked in any serious doubt and four minutes from the end, the superb Bernardo picked out sub Ilkay Gundogan in the box and the German had time to control and then prod home the decider. Romelu Lukaku spent only 30 seconds on the pitch after replacing pale Jesse Lingard, and yet he managed to make trouble for City.

The distance between the two teams is already 12 points, an insurmountable obstacle for the Red Devils, and we are only in mid-November.

The defending champions have shown no signs of slowing down.

"We need to have his (Vichai's) dream in our heads but also professional attitudes, every day hard work in the training sessions all the time and to give our best", he said.

Tireless shift by the City play-maker who claimed an assist for the first and third goals was involved in the second, too.

"Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, they have numbers to be champion".

Liverpool is right behind them with two points fewer, and it seems that this Premier League campaign is going to be a bit more interesting than the previous one.

"We started the game moving the ball very slowly so it was impossible for us to be risky and easy for Everton to defend", he said.

The period from the turn of the century to Sir Alex Ferguson's final game - aptly enough, the only 5-5 draw in Premier League history - saw United and Arsenal level on 28 each.
