News England - Cesc Fabregas claims he has a gash on his leg which proves he too fell victim to his former team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor's violent conduct. The Arsenal captain has spoken out over Adebayor's dangerous play in last weekend's Barclays Premier League match between the latter's new club Manchester City and his old one at Eastlands last Saturday. "I think this is a red card here," said Fabregas, reportedly gesturing to his leg and claiming the injury was suffered in an Adebayor challenge studied by the Football Association on Thursday before they banned the City striker for three matches for stamping on Robin van Persie's head in the same match. - Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has branded rivals Manchester City ''cocky'' ahead of Sunday's eagerly-anticipated derby clash at Old Trafford. Ferguson hit out at his local rivals after their 100% start to the season and warned opposite number Mark Hughes he must win the Premier League title to justify his £200 million spending spree. 'The rivalry has gone up a notch in the last few months, with them signing all those players and then coming up with that advert and all their posters about Carlos Tevez. They've been a bit, how can I put it, cocky. Yes, a bit cocky. They've got seven centre forwards now, which is crazy, just amazing.'' - Emmanuel Adebayor has launched a staunch defence of the actions that saw him face two FA charges for his conduct against former club Arsenal. Adebayor, who admitted the charge of violent conduct, defended his actions with passion, telling the the Sun: "People talk about us as being football players and the money we earn, but just because we are fortunate it does not mean we need to take abuse. If you were to abuse a man in the street for over an hour he would react and it would be a worse reaction than a goal celebration! There is only so much abuse a man can take until he reaches breaking point. I was being abused by people who six months ago were singing my name and the abuse was for no reason. I scored and I wanted to show people it is not a good idea to abuse me. I really didn't understand it at all. They were clapping Kolo but they were shouting personal abuse at me before the match even kicked off." - Match Previews and Injury Reports: Injury Reports Liverpool v West Ham United Italy - Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro is set to miss Juventus' Champions League visit to Bayern Munich on September 30 because of a thigh muscle injury which will sideline him for up to three weeks.
