MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK] Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson once described modern Manchester City as being "all talk," but last weekend his team was trounced at home, 6-1, by its city rival.

Mario Balotelli opened the scoring in the 22nd minute and after Man United defender Jonny Evans was ejected in the 47th minute for fouling Balotelli on an obvious scoring opportunity, the floodgates opened.

Balotelli again in the 60th minute, Sergio Aguero struck in the 69th, and after Darren Fletcher pulled one back for the hosts, Edin Dzeko scored in the 89th, and added a second stoppage time goal after David Silva's 91st minute goal.

    Man City fans should not be carried away. Before the send off Man U had more possession and greater number of corners . A one goal lead would not been enough. The send off changed the game. I think Sir Alex got his tactics wrong. No Hernandez, no Smith and no Giggs ?

    Man City is the real deal, so long as Mancini can keep the egos quenched. Silva is brilliant distributing and Nasri is no slack either, and they have so many horses to feed...really dangerous. No fan of the best team money can buy, but I wouldn't bet against them. Agree that the sending off changed the whole game, but City had U's number regardless.
