Manchester City got a stunning 1-6 win at Old Trafford
This is the worst day in Manchester United's history. Their local rival, Manchester City, crushed Ferguson's side with an impressive 1-6 victory. Mario Balotelli, Agüero, Dzeko and Silva scored for the "Citizens". Fletcher netted the only goal for United, but it was just not enough.
Italian striker Mario Balotelli proved to be the most dangerous weapon in Mancini's squad. He netted twice and showed a shirt with the phrase "Why always me?". Edin Dzeko and David Silva were also extremely important in this unexpected victory.
As for the "Red Devils", they had a hard time in terms of posession and shots on goals. Wayne Rooney was not the different player that saved his team in the past. And the red card for Jonathan Evans, only in the first minutes of the second half, allowed City to display a great game.
Manchester City is the leader of the Premier League with 25 pts. while United remains in the second place with 20.

"Chicharito" saved the day for Manchester United in 1-1 draw against Liverpool
The 2011/2012 season in the Premier League will not be an easy one for Manchester United. Rivals are stronger this time, and if Ferguson leaves some of his stars on the bench, bad things can happen.
Indeed, Ferguson sidelined Wayne Rooney, "Chicharito" Hernandez and Nani in order to allow players rotation. The starting team against Liverpool included then Park Ji-Sung, Danny Welbeck and Ashley Young in the frontline, but Kenny Dalglish's side was too dangerous to be underestimated.
Captain Steven Gerrard scored the first one for Liverpool, and even Lebron James - who was attending the game - celebrated with euphoria. After the 1-0, Ferguson sent on Rooney, Hernandez and Nani to save the situation.
And it was the mexican striker who scored the equalizer with a late header, at the 81st minute.

City defeated United and reached the FA Cup final
Yayá Toure scored the only goal in Manchester City's 1-0 win over classic rival Manchester United. The "citizens" reached the FA Cup final and will have the chance to win a title for the first time in 35 years.
Manchester United used their most important players except for Rooney, sidelined due to yellow cards accumulation. Carlos Tevez - City's best striker - was not fit for the game either, which makes this win even more important for Mancini's team.
The blue team could not dominate the game in the first part. But once they gain confidence, City started creating really dangerous situations with Silva and Toure. Ferguson had troubles in his front line, but used "Chicharito" Hernandez only in the last ten minutes. Clearly a late move.
Ferguson blamed the lost to a "slack defense and not scoring in key moments of the game".
