Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and Leroy Sane speak after their side moved to the top of the table with a derby win over Manchester United.

More than an hour after Manchester City's exit from the Champions League last week, Sergio Aguero was sitting in the dressing room still wearing his kit.

With Paul Pogba's future at Man United hanging in the balance, ESPN FC's Mark Ogden explains why he expects the Frenchman will depart this summer.

The 178th Manchester derby between United and City, on Wednesday at Old Trafford, will be crucial in deciding the outcome of this season's Premier League title race, but the result of this game will mean as much in Liverpool as it does in Manchester.
