Two hat-trick heroes and two more comprehensive wins for Manchester City and Manchester United last weekend meant that the two clubs continue to occupy the top two places in the Premier League, with unbeaten records and goal differences which make them daunting prospects for any opponent.
However, both teams only mustered lacklustre draws in the UEFA Champions League this week, and all eyes will be on whether or not they can bounce back to their devastating best.
City travel to 18th-placed Fulham while United have an appetising clash with previous champions Chelsea, for whom £50-million striker Fernando Torres (pictured) has begun to show improving form.

Last weekend, I suffered my first predictions defeat at the hands of Neri Stein, who scored a credible seven points to my four. Congratulations to Neri!
