Manchester United Manager Louis van Gaal felt his team were on the receiving end of a tough call as the Red Devils were held to a draw by a Manchester City side that struggled to contribute anything offensively in one of the most boring Manchester derbies in recent memory.

Choosing not to be too harsh on Referee Mark Clattenburg, Van Gaal shared, "We should have had a penalty on Ander Herrera. It is easy to see for me but I have a replay. The referee has one second. I always say we need the modern technology but I am the only one in the desert calling for it."

On another night of pulsating Champions League action, both Manchester giants fought back from being a goal down to get something from their games on Matchday 3, ahead of their big derby clash in the Premier League this weekend.

Manchester City, hosting a very competitive Sevilla side at the Etihad Stadium, were second best for large periods of the game and went down to a Yehven Konoplyanka strike on the half-hour mark. The Citizens got a barely deserved equalizer after some good work from Yaya Toure saw Wilfried Bony's effort deflected into his own net by Adil Rami.

Manchester City showed that there are plenty of goals in the team even without the likes of Sergio Aguero and David Silva as the Premier League leaders hammered Bournemouth 5-1 at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a hat-trick from Raheem Sterling and a brace from Wilfried Bony.

Man City came into this game without plenty of first choice starters with Vincent Kompany and Aleksandr Kolarov also missing from their starting eleven, but were clinical enough to kill the game off as a contest by half-time and even withdrew Yaya Toure at that stage to rest the big Ivorian.

Manchester City might be top of the Premier League standings heading into the international break this October, but their title challenge may have suffered a massive blow without the team having kicked a ball in anger.

Star striker Sergio Aguero, who celebrated a return to form by smashing 5 goals past a beleaguered Newcastle United side last week, could miss upto a month of action after having suffered a hamstring injury while playing for Argentina against Ecuador.

Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero equaled the Premier League scoring record for most goals in a game by banging 5 past Newcastle United yesterday, but the Argentine superstar declared that while he was pleased with his own performance, what mattered most was the fact that the team picked up three much needed points.

Man City, who had lost back to back games in the Premier League after a blistering start to the campaign, also saw Aguero go through a personal drought with the Argentine having failed to score in the last 4 matches. That ended though in style against Newcastle yesterday as Aguero slammed home 5 goals in a 20 minute spell either side of the break.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini sang the praises of his players after they hammered Newcastle United 6-1 to reclaim top spot in the Premier League standings, bouncing back from back to back defeats.

A delighted Pellegrini told the press after the game, "I am very happy because that was the reaction of a team who normally wants to play in this style. We want to try to score the most amount of goals. I like to see my teams play in this way - not just score one goal or when we get the second just go back. I think it is important for fans to see a team scoring and enjoying the game."

Manchester City did it the hard way, but they did just enough in the end to pick up a key 2-1 win over German side Borussia Monchengladbach in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night to kickstart their campaign this season after a disappointing loss to Juventus on matchday 1.

Borussia took the lead in the game through Lars Stindl in the 54th minute, this after Joe Hart had saved a penalty in the first half, but Man City bounced back with a goal through Nicolas Otamendi seconds after Martin Demichelis had a goal disallowed in the same passage of play from a well worked corner.
