Manchester Is Blue: City rolls past United

Manchester Is Blue: City rolls past United

Jose Mourinho's side saw off Bournemouth and Juventus in the space of five days last week after going behind but they could not make it three out of three against Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions.

Indeed, the Citizens appeared to be on course to secure their third Premier League title with a win against Manchester United after goals from Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan in the first half. In truth, it was Ederson who handed them the initiative with a poor challenge to give United a penalty kick.

Mourinho was also adamant that United did not put in a poor display at the Etihad, highlighting his team had gone into the match on the back of a more gruelling week than their hosts.

Lukaku has been dropped by José Mourinho in recent weeks, with Alexis Sánchez stepping into a central role up top, and it looks as if Lukaku will start from the bench this afternoon.

However, United started with three defensively minded midfielders: Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.

Andre Russell out of T20I series against India
A very warm welcome to the live blog of the first T20I between India and West which will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Pant is expected to fulfil the wicket-keeping responsibilities while Karthik could take on one of the positions in the outfield.

Former Arsenal playmaker Merson believes Manchester City will beat Manchester United at The Etihad on Sunday. "They're the games that I love to be involved in".

United came from a goal down to win 2-1 in Turin on Wednesday, handing the Old Lady their first defeat of the season in all competitions. The Spaniard is often overlooked by Mourinho, but he can hold the ball, find gaps for his attacking teammates and provide the kind of invention that the starting team was so obviously lacking.

The best of the rest are doing all they can to keep up, but City are still ahead of the pack.

Fernandinho is 34 next May and his age has left Manchester City scouring the globe for a suitable replacement. We played two matches away, hard ones, the second was a final against one of the best teams in Europe (Juventus), which demanded everything we had to give, physically and mentally.

Manchester City will be looking to exact revenge on Manchester United after their humiliating 3-2 loss to Mourinho's side last term.
