Manchester: 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.

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.

"It's horrible to lose the derby — it's always horrible. It's worse when you lose in this way," said United captain Nemanja Vidic, whose team was four goals down after 50 minutes. (Match in pics)
