Paul Pogba has been under fire at Man United but remains one of the top central midfielders in the world.

Taylor Richards could be the next Manchester City youngster to break into Pep Guardiola's first team -- thanks to a little help from Paul Pogba.

Insiders have told ESPN FC that there is plenty of excitement around the 17-year-old midfielder, who has already been the subject of a bid from Ligue 1 side Monaco, according to reports in France.

Football Leaks paints Manchester City as money-grubbing cheaters

ESPN FC's Julien Laurens talks Financial Fair Play and the reported negotiations to keep PSG and Man City in the UEFA Champions League.
Pep Guardiola says he knows nothing about UEFA's investigation into Manchester City breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

If -- even for a short while -- you can suspend your allegiances, silence your biases and stow what you know and reject what you suspect, you can watch Manchester City and admire them as the highest expression of football, the perfect synthesis of style and functionality.

It's a tall order.

Most of those reading this will have allegiances, and they will be to teams other than City.

You may dislike City because you disagree with how their owners choose to run the country they rule (or possibly...

Man City's third goal vs. Man United was a two-minute demonstration of Pep Guardiola's stunning football

Steve Nicol and Craig Burley examine Manchester City's dominance of rivals Man United in a 3-1 derby win that showed the gulf between the two sides.

The move lasted exactly two minutes. When Manchester City scored for the final time that afternoon, lifting them to a 3-1 win over rivals Manchester United, the move to get them there featured a wondrous and uninterrupted sequence of possession. This was not a mere goal; this was a short film directed by Pep Guardiola.

Fittingly, given his stellar performance all afternoon, its main actor was David Silva.

Silva is 32 years old, a stage of career by which most footballers have become shadows...

Man United's late collapse the talking point vs. Man City. PLUS: Dortmund expose Bayern

It was by no means remarkable or unexpected that Manchester City should dominate the derby against United. The gulf in class is evident, and as Paul Scholes pointed out afterwards, his United side never faced a City team that was this good. Still, the fact that nine of United's starting XI predate Jose Mourinho at the club is an eyebrow-raiser and further confirmation of how much water has been treaded at Old Trafford. (The two who weren't, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic, aren't much to write...

Sergio Aguero shrugs off talk of an unbeaten Premier League season after Manchester City's victory over rivals Manchester United.

As if to rubber-stamp their derby day dominance, Manchester City wrapped up Sunday's 3-1 derby win over United with a devastating team goal in the closing stages at the Etihad Stadium.

Ilkay Gundogan was the man to apply the finishing touch to a sublime 44-pass manoeuvre that took City from their own half to the back of United's net over the course of one minute and 55 seconds.

To put that in some kind of perspective, here are some other things that can be done in that time, or even quicker.
