The Manchester derby

The best images from Old Trafford where Manchester City thrashed rivals Manchester United in a match which may signal a new era of Premier League dominance














It's City who score first when Balotelli deftly slots the ball into the corner of David De Gea's net with a first time shot. It's a goal of nonchalance and class ...






The Italian is once again a nuisance to United at the start of the second half as he bursts through the centre and tangles with Jonny Evans. The United defender is caught the wrong side of his man and intentionally bundles Balotelli to the floor



Evans was the last man and, predictably, the referee Mark Clattenburg shows him a straight red card

United's players protest but there's little use as that was well worthy of a red



It takes another quarter of an hour for City to exploit their numerical dominance. On the hour mark, Balotelli arrives at the back stick to tap home an enticing low cross from James Milner. David Silva was the architect of the chance, twisting his marker of the corner of the box before freeing Milner with a weighted pass

Mr Lick 24-10-2011 08:05 AM



AgŁero then prods home a third goal nine minutes later. It's a strike which bears similarity to Balotelli's second, the main difference being that Micah Richards supplied the final incisive pass



Now there's a sight Sir Alex Ferguson would have hoped not to see, City fans doing the Poznan at Old Trafford






However, Darren Fletcher scores a delightful goal - sweeping the ball into the top corner - to give United a slender degree of hope



City are unperturbed, though, and just as the 90 minutes are up Edin Dzeko bags a fourth goal courtesy of his knee



Moments later David Silva adds a fifth by slotting the ball between De Gea's legs. How humiliating is this for United?



And then a sixth! Dzeko collects Silva's fine pass and rams the ball home to complete a stunning rout



Just look at that final score. That's United's worst home defeat in over 50 years and, more importantly, it has lifted City five points clear of their neighbours at the top of the Premier League table

A man pushes his boat with a passenger past a shop selling Buddha images in Bangkok, Thailand, Monday, Oct. 24. Bangkok Gov. Sukhumbhand Paribatra issued a dramatic warning to residents of the Thai capital to prepare for floodwaters to roll deeper into the city from suburban areas already choking under the deluge.






Thai volunteers set the place for flood affected people residing at Sports Science Centre inside The Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, Oct. 24. Some 3,500 flood affected people will be moved from Thammasat University Rangsit campus to Ratchamangkala Stadium, as the university is under water and power and tap water supplies have been cut. Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra warned people in parts of Bangkok to expect floods as water from northern provinces had reached the capital
