Former Premier League player Shaun Wright-Phillips has revealed when the Manchester power shift happened. He made this known in a chat with The Sun. According to the former Chelsea and Manchester City winger, the power shift from Manchester United to Manchester City happened when the Red Devils were beaten in the 2011 FA Cup semi-finals. Manchester City legend Yaya Toure scored the only goal of the game to lead the Citizens to a slender 1-0 win over Manchester United. Shaun Wright-Phillips said that match was the beginning of the Manchester City dominance till this day. Manchester City have been the dominant force in Manchester at the expense of Manchester United for over a decade.



Ex-Chelsea and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has criticised new West Ham United player Jesse Lingard after his penalty antics during the win over bottom team Sheffield United on Monday night in the Premier League. Shaun Wright-Phillips was on Premier League TV in the company of Alan Shearer for the game between West Ham United and Sheffield United at the London Stadium and for the game between Chelsea and Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

Jesse Lingard created a little scene when he won a penalty towards the end of the first half. The Manchester United loanee wanted to take the penalty he had won before he was stopped by the captain for the day, Declan Rice who also doubles as the designated penalty taker. Long serving player Mark Noble is the West Ham United but he’s not a regular in the starting XI. In his place, vice-captain Declan Rice is always the captain during games in the Premier League. In the end, Jesse Lingard left the penalty for Declan Rice, who scored to give his team a 1-0 lead at the break. (more…)
