In two seasons at Manchester United, Carlos Tevez won two league titles, the Champions League, the League Cup and the Club World Cup.

He then left for City, after United opted not to make his loan move permanent, spending four years there, winning one league title and one FA Cup. In his penultimate season he refused to play for City in September, then returned to Argentina for six months to play golf.

When Marcus Rashford slid the ball past Joe Hart in the derby it was the composed finished of a seasoned striker, not a teenager with less than a dozen senior appearances under his belt.

It's safe to say Rashford has exploded onto the Premiership scene, with goals against bitter rivals City and Arsenal he could not have had a better start to his United career.

They've concentrated on eight clubs, including United and City, and have had made some fairly surprising discoveries, and some not so surprising.

Chelsea are a couple of days into Pre Season, a week behind most of the Premier League clubs around the country and although things have only just started, I am wondering if Chelsea have somewhat of a psychological advantage over our rivals already?

Let's face it, Manchester United fans AND Manchester City fans have to be honest right now and admit they are unsure, uncertain of how well their new managers will perform in their new roles after the success of Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini.

It was interesting to see Roberto Mancini claim that United's 15 point lead was down to being "lucky".

Gary Neville, in his column in the Telegraph, has discussed Sunday's derby and how FFP may stop City's progression.

Not since the 1989-90 season has the PFA Team of the Year failed to include a player from United or City, so the fact that only De Gea makes my team offers an indication of the state of both clubs as they prepare to meet at Old Trafford.

Last week Roberto Mancini comically claimed that United had been lucky this season, as they had won games they didn't deserve to, whilst City had dropped points in games they deserved to win.

On RoM we addressed this comment, pointing out the difference between United and City wasn't anything to do with luck, but our winning mentality.

Ahead of the international friendly fixtures, Patrice Evra has been asked about the rivalry between United and City.

Evra claims that City winning the title last season doesn't change the fact that United are superior to them.

The Christmas period in the Premier League is one of the busiest times of the season and a time where the League Table begins to take shape as an indication for the remainder of the season.

Chelsea Boss Jose Mourinho Targets Both Manchester Clubs in Mind Games

For the last three years, there has been a Manchester monopoly at the top of the Premier league, with either United or City taking the title. In the last two seasons, they have finished one and two, with few surprised that they left the rest trailing behind.

However, the idea that the Premiership race is little more than a private contest to see whether it is red or blue ticker tape filling the air in Albert Square in May is about to face a stern challenge.

Half and half scarves and a wasted chance.

Both United and City saw their team lose earlier this week in Europe, but whilst we had confirmed our place at the top of the group after four games, the blues confirmed themselves as the worst performing English team in the history of Champions League football. There's no denying they were in a ridiculously tough group but there's no real excuse or explanation for their drab performances in Europe.
