MANCHESTER, England -- The reality of life after Alex Ferguson is really kicking in at Manchester United, which is languishing in mid-table after a painful 4-1 loss to its local rival. Michael Brockers Rams Jersey . To chants of "Easy! Easy!" Manchester City ripped United apart at Etihad Stadium to leave the champions staring at a five-point gap to early pacesetters Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday. "Its horrible to lose the derby -- its always horrible. Its worse when you lose in this way," said United captain Nemanja Vidic, whose team was four goals down after 50 minutes. Arsenal leads on goal difference from Spurs after Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil, making his home debut, set up all his teams goals in a 3-1 win over Stoke, while Tottenham needed a strike in the third minute of stoppage time by Brazil midfielder Paulinho to snatch a 1-0 win at Cardiff. Both north London clubs have won four of their opening five matches and have overhauled Liverpool, which lost 1-0 to Southampton on Saturday. "The only thing of our position at the moment is that we are in a position where we can focus on improvement in a stable environment, so thats a good basis," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Swansea beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the other match, with Spanish forward Michu scoring for the third straight match this week. It is Uniteds worst start to a Premier League campaign since the 2004-05 season. And after a testing first five league matches where the team has picked up just one point from matches against Liverpool, Chelsea and City, it doesnt get any easier for Moyes. On Wednesday, Liverpool will visit Old Trafford for a League Cup third-round match with Luis Suarez back from a 10-match ban and likely to play a full-strength team with no European football to worry about this season. "Ive made them aware of what I think," Moyes said, when asked if he had given the team the "hairdryer treatment" Ferguson was famous for at halftime intervals. United was all over the place against City, its defence overpowered by the strength of Alvaro Negredo and the darting runs of Sergio Aguero, who opened the scoring in the 16th minute with an acrobatic volley and scored two minutes after the break to make it 3-0. Yaya Toure had doubled Citys lead in first-half injury time and Samir Nasri lifted an already-euphoric atmosphere inside the Etihad up a notch by volleying home in the 50th minute. Wayne Rooneys superb, curling free kick in the 87th minute was a consolation for United, which hasnt scored in open play in the league since the opening-day 4-1 victory at Swansea. Robin van Persie was missing for United because of a groin injury, a telling blow with the Dutchman having linked up so well with Rooney in recent matches. "The start to the season could be a lot better," Moyes said. "We did say it could be difficult start." Citys off-season spending of around 90 million pounds (now $144 million) is starting to reap its rewards, with the team now two points behind Arsenal and Spurs after its best performance of the season. "Its an important game for the team," City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "And for the fans they will be happy for the month now." At Arsenal, the in-form Aaron Ramsey opened the scoring in the fifth minute after Ozils free kick was parried by goalkeeper Asmir Begovic before Geoff Cameron equalized for Stoke. Per Mertesacker restored Arsenals lead in the 36th minute by darting in to meet Ozils corner with a header and Bacary Sagna was on the end of another Ozil set piece in the 72nd, heading in from a free kick. Spurs left it late in south Wales, gaining the win they deserved when Paulinho tapped in Erik Lamelas pass from close range for his first Premier League goal. "We played so much football it would have been unfair to leave here with only one point," Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said. Nathan Dyer added to Michus early strike for Swansea, completing a satisfying week for the Welsh club after beating Valencia 3-0 in the Europa League on Thursday. Eric Dickerson Rams Jersey . The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. Greg Zuerlein Jersey . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. http://www.laramsfansshop.com/c-36-rams-alec-ogletree-jersey.aspx . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday.BIRMINGHAM, England -- Arsenal scored two goals in the space of 59 seconds on its way to a 2-1 win over Aston Villa that put the visitors back on top of the Premier League on Monday. Jack Wilsheres 34th-minute opener was quickly followed by a well-taken goal by Olivier Giroud, which proved to be enough to lift Arsenal back above Manchester City and Chelsea after their victories at the weekend. Belgium striker Christian Benteke scored his first goal since mid-September to give Villa hope in the 76th minute but the home side couldnt find an equalizer despite late pressure. "The first half was more about playing, and the second half was more about fighting," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. With its fourth straight league win, Arsenal restored its one-point lead over City after 21 matches. To cap another disappointing result at Villa Park for the mid-table hosts, Villa defender Nathan Baker was carried off on a stretcher in the 21st minute after briefly losing consciousness when he was hit straight in the face by a shot from Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry. Baker required oxygen and a neck brace after being treated on the field for seven minutes. He was later diagnosed with mild concussion, according to broadcaster Sky Sports. The pressure was on Arsenal after seeing the rest of the top seven all pick up victories by two-goal margins over the weekend. However, save for a worrying last 15 minutes when Villaa rallied gamely, the Gunners passed the ball much better and always looked the likely winners. Quinton Coples Jersey. Wilsheres goal came when he ran onto a cut-back from left back Nacho Monreal, took a touch and shot low in to the bottom corner to the left of goalkeeper Brad Guzan. Just seventeen seconds after the restart, the ball hit the back of the net again. This time Wilshere was the provider, the England midfielder collecting a loose ball and playing a sublime pass through to Giroud, who brought the ball down well and fired across Guzan into the corner. It was the France strikers ninth league goal of the season on his return to the first team after a spell out through injury and illness. Villa had only scored seven goals in its previous 10 home games this season so a comeback was unlikely, even if memories were relatively fresh of a surprise win at Arsenal on the first day of the season. However, when Benteke stooped to head in Matthew Lowtons fine cross at full stretch after Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla sloppily gave possession away, it was all to play for with 14 minutes left. Bentekes downward header, saved comfortably by Wojciech Szczesny, was the closest Villa came to earning a point. "Its a massive three points, especially because we dropped a bit in the second half," Wilshere said. "We have done that a few times, letting teams come on to us, but we dealt well with it."
