Fergie has defensive concerns

Alex Ferguson is worried that Manchester United's terrible defensive record this season will come back to haunt them in this weekend's top of the table clash against Manchester City.

Alex Ferguson: Hands up if you have defensive concerns

The Red Devils travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday with a three point advantage in the Premier League table - although City have a superior goal difference.

United have already conceded 32 goals this season, in all competitions, including three at Reading last Saturday.

Skipper and central defender Nemanja Vidic is unlikely to return from injury and Fergie is certainly a worried manager heading into this important derby match.

He said: "If we perform like that (Reading match) on Sunday then God knows what's going to happen to us.

"We've lost 32 goals already and I can't remember us losing so many goals before Christmas.

"Saturday was like Cartoon Cavalcade and when you see City have Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko - really tall players - it's going to be a big challenge. It's a concern."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
