Manchester City vs. Manchester United: Who Has the Better Squad and Why

As if there weren't already enough talking points to wade through following the fiery-as-ever Manchester derby from the weekend, Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has gone and muddied the waters with a comment that his team are better than their United rivals—despite losing 3-2 at home to them.

United have more experience but we have a much better team and play much better football.

The Italian manager will no doubt be disappointed, then, that his men offered scant evidence to back up his claims during the 90 minutes at the Etihad Stadium.

A one-off fixture, while exciting and important in its own right, perhaps doesn't offer too much insight as to the validity of those claims. An analysis of the entire squad from both clubs will help to determine if the claim was merely bluster after a painful late defeat, or realistic talk from the boss of the champions.
