Manchester United suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of arch rivals Manchester City in the derby between the two teams on Sunday. This match was expected to be the encounter David Moyes finally got his big win as Manchester United manager. This latest defeat means that he has now lost against three top teams. The result also leaves United five points adrift from the top of the table after having played just five matches. At one point in the match, it looked like City would go on and repeat the famous 6-1 score they achieved a few years ago.
However, United managed to improve slightly after the goal from Sergio Aguero that made it four, while the goal from Rooney near the end of the match gave the score some respectable outlook. Despite the goal, there has been a lot of criticism flowing in for manager Moyes. There was a lot of poor performances from big players like Michael Carrick, Antonio Valencia, and Ashley Young. New signing Marouane Fellaini was used in the midfield alongside Carrick and he was at fault for many goals.
After the match, Moyes was extremely furious with his players and he demanded an instant reaction from them. United’s next match will be against Liverpool in the League Cup.
“I’ve made them aware of that. But if ever there was a group of players I’d expect a reaction from it would be a group of Manchester United players. I think the way they have been brought up, the way they have been bred with the manager previously, they react, that’s what they do, and that’s what we will do here. I just told the players it the way I would have told players at any other club if I don’t think they are doing it,” said Moyes.

The top four seem to have stamped their authority on the 2013/14 season before a ball’s been kicked, largely due to the fact that Man City, Arsenal and Chelsea are keen to capitalise on Fergie’s retirement which has blown betting odds all over.
Many pundits are betting on Chelsea for the title in the wake of Mourinho’s return and the fact that players like Hazard and Oscar are a year more mature. Man City probably has the best squad in the league so they have a strong case for the 2013/14 title, but Arsenal could be the surprise package. Wenger’s team have pace, width, and strength in defence and at odds of around 10/1 at the online casino, they could be the best value bet. Continue reading

Manchester City summer signings Jesus Navas, who is believed to have been signed for around £ 18 million, has said that he turned down the opportunity to join Arsenal a few years ago. The former Sevilla winger has been one of the best players in Spanish football over the last five years. However, he has been unable to move away from Sevilla due to several reasons. Up until now, Navas has been suffering from home sickness and anxiety, which have prevented him from moving away from Sevilla. He has been extensively consulted by Manchester City before he completed the move to the Premier league.
Arsenal were interested in the winger several years ago, but they were unable to persuade the 27-year-old to join them. He has said that Sevilla were extremely successful back then by regularly qualify for the Champions League. Hence, he did not see any necessary to move away from this hometown club. He has said that the Premier league will certainly suit his style because he has always been a fan of fast football. Navas is going to be one of the quickest players in the Premier league. He has said that speed is his biggest asset and it helped him open up opposition.
He is expected to bring a new dimension to City’s play in the coming season.
“At that time, I was still winning and achieving things at Seville and therefore it wasn’t the right time to move. My time at Seville was great but we have not won anything for two or three years and I feel now is the right time to move on as I am ambitious to win things. I will always demand 100 per cent from myself so for that reason it was the right time to go. It was a few years ago now and it’s all in the past and I’ve moved on. Otherwise I wouldn’t be here now,” said Navas.
