Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool missed out on adding the Community Shield to their list of honours as Manchester City reclaimed their title on Sunday. Pep Guardiola's side won 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 stalemate took the annual curtain raiser straight to a shootout. The Reds had initially struggled to get a grip on Man City who dominated possession in the first half, and took the lead through Raheem Sterling. David Silva provided the sublime knock-on which Sterling tapped home past a flummoxed Alisson - the England international scoring his first ever goal against his former club.

After nine months of football and the top of the league position changing hand dozens of times it all comes down to one Sunday afternoon on the seaside.

It has been a horrid year and a half for Alexis Sanchez following his move to Manchester United. The Chilean forward has struggled to establish himself at Old Trafford since joining from Arsenal last year and now he has reached an all new low. Sanchez featured as a late second-half substitute during the derby defeat to Man City on Wednesday night and he did not have the impact on the match which he would have liked. Goals from Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane had given City a two-goal advantage prior to Sanchez's inclusion from the bench. The former Arsenal man entered the playing field with 12 minutes left to play, but what followed only added to the misery of the night. During his brief cameo at Old Trafford the 30-year-old managed just one touch of the ball as United slumped to their seventh defeat in their last nine games. United's latest defeat means they are in desperate need of win when they face Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend, and speaking after the game Solskjaer … [Read more...] about The damning Alexis Sanchez stat after Manchester United defeat to Man City
Marcus Rashford gave an honest assessment of Manchester United's derby day defeat to Manchester City and told his teammates to forget about Champions League. The forward was one of United's brightest players in the 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford and came out after the game to apologise for the display. "It was clear the difference between the two teams. We didn’t play like Manchester United. It’s not felt like Manchester United, we’ve not played like Manchester United – that’s not right," the forward told Sky Sports. "Bare minimum should be to give your all and work hard for the badge and the fans and just for the club. It’s important to do it for yourself it's been a tough road to get to where we are. "We were never expected to be in this position but we got there and To be not putting in the same performances we were doing at the start of January is disappointing for the players."

Manchester United need to put in a much-improved performance on Wednesday after the weekend horror show at Everton. United were second best in every aspect at Goodison Park, and have now conceded seven goals without reply in their last two games. However, with Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea all dropping points this weekend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are still in the race for a top four finish. But in order to finish the season strongly, they must improve markedly on recent performances, and that could mean a shake-up of personnel following an abject performance from many first team regulars. Ashley Young, Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial came in for particular criticism from fans for their performances at Goodison Park, but with such a free-scoring City team in opposition, Solskjaer may think twice before making wholesale changes. In defence, Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof are likely to be the only fit centre-backs with Phil Jones an injury doubt. Lindelof has been deployed … [Read more...] about Man Utd team vs Man City predicted
