Manchester United vs Manchester City: Paul Pogba is a problem, I don't believe a word he says, claims Roy Keane
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has claimed Paul Pogba is “a problem” at the club, and that he doesn't believe a word the French World Cup-winner says. United host Manchester City at Old Trafford on the back of six defeats in their last eight games, but have the chance to derail their rival's title charge. During their recent slump under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, hallmarks of the collapse under Jose Mourinho have reemerged, with the Norwegian questioned if some of his players “care enough”.

Guardiola's Man City raise the bar as Man Utd fall behind
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his side have raised the bar in the Premier League after edging one point back ahead of Liverpool in a titanic title race with a 2-0 win at Manchester United on Wednesday. Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane struck for the visitors in 12 second-half minutes at Old Trafford to inflict a seventh defeat in nine games on United, who remain three points adrift of the top four. City cannot match their record 100 points tally in romping to the title last season, but victories over Burnley, Leicester and Brighton will clinch the title on 98 points and ensure Liverpool's 29-year wait to win the league continues despite already posting a club record points tally in the Premier League era.

Man City underline dominance over fading Man Utd
Manchester City are closing in on becoming the first side since Manchester United a decade ago to retain the Premier League title after they gave their rivals a stark reminder that they now rule the city. City were once described by former Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson as the "noisy neighbours" in the early days of their spending splurge after the club's Abu Dhabi owners took charge in 2008. But since Ferguson's retirement in 2013, when they were last crowned champions, United have not finished above City.

Paul Ince said he is "sick and tired" of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's nostalgic approach, insisting the Manchester United manager must get over Alex Ferguson in a stinging attack. Solskjaer was permanently appointed manager last month following an impressive interim spell following Jose Mourinho's December sacking but seven defeats in nine games has raised doubts. United were swept aside 2-0 by neighbours and Premier League champions Manchester City on Wednesday, leaving the Red Devils three points adrift of the top four.

'His season is a masterpiece' – Guardiola lauds Bernardo Silva as one of Europe's best
Pep Guardiola applauded Bernardo Silva for his performance in Manchester City's 2-0 derby win over Manchester United and heralded the Portuguese midfielder as one of Europe's best players. Silva joined City ahead of the 2017-18 campaign from Monaco to much fanfare and had a solid, if unspectacular, debut campaign, often finding himself used as a substitute. But this term he has truly raised his game to another level, finding himself involved in 14 Premier League goals – including a strike against United on Wednesday – and impressing with his all-around play.

Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku has admitted that it would be a “dream” to play in Serie A at some point in his career. The Belgium international left his homeland for a career in England as a teenager in 2011 and represented Chelsea and Everton, as well as having a productive loan spell at West Bromwich Albion, prior to moving to United in 2017. At some point the 25-year-old would like to test himself in Italy, but Lukaku insists he is only thinking about his future at Old Trafford for the time being.

MILAN (AP) - AC Milan defender Davide Calabria will miss the rest of the season because of a fractured bone in his left leg. Calabria had to be substituted shortly before halftime in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Lazio in the Italian Cup semifinals. Milan says tests “have revealed a compound fracture of the left fibula.” The club adds that “a new scan is scheduled to take place in about a month.” Milan has five matches left this season. Calabria is also likely to miss the European under-21 championship, which takes place from June 16-30. He has made 15 appearances for Italy's under-21 team.

Liverpool acting like a club that belongs at the top – Henderson
Liverpool's mentality this season is like that of a club that belongs at the top and challenging for major titles, according to captain Jordan Henderson. Jurgen Klopp's men are enjoying one of their best campaigns in a generation, as they remain in the Premier League title race with three games to go and are in the Champions League semi-finals. Even if the Reds do not end up topping the table, they will almost certainly break the record for most points won by a team finishing second in the Premier League, as they are just one away from equalling Manchester United's haul of 89 from 2011-12.

Report: Batshuayi struggling at Crystal Palace, unwanted back at Chelsea
Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi started out well enough in his latest loan spell, getting his first goal in his first start for Crystal Palace, then adding second two starts later, and finding the back of the net in the FA Cup as well, albeit in a losing effort. According to Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad (via Sport Witness), problems on and off the pitch have affected Michy during his time in South London, and have led to his dropping by manager Roy Hodgson. Palace's playing style is seen as a problem, as it does not fit Michy's skills (which seems to be a common theme for him England). Michy had great success at Borussia Dortmund thanks to their attacking style, but Palace are on the opposite side of the spectrum and it's affecting his numbers and quality of play.

The struggling New York Red Bulls got a major let-off Wednesday with the news that Kaku would only be suspended two more matches for blasting a ball into a group of fans. It's a total of three matches away from the Red Bulls after the incident, which occurred against Sporting KC on April 14. Someone must have convinced the league that Kaku's intent was to smash the ball into the advertising boards and not the fans, and injuring a spectator certainly could've carried a much longer suspension than three matches.

Arsenal are interested in signing Andre Gomes this summer, according to sources from ESPN FC. The Barcelona midfielder has been on a season long loan at Everton.

Gomes has been a regular player for Everton, making 26 appearances and logging 1961 minutes. He has played as part of a double pivot, next to the more defensive minded Idrissa Gueye. His top line statistics are not all that impressive for a player who the reports say is an Aaron Ramsey replacement, with 1 goal and 1 assist and just 1 shot added per 90 minutes.
