What to watch in the leading soccer competitions in Europe this weekend:
After playing three games each inside 10 days, the Premier League teams are straight back in action as they enter the FA Cup.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United and Manchester City will not be sanctioned following a review into a melee involving players and coaches from both Premier League teams after the derby at Old Trafford this month.
After receiving evidence from both clubs and independent eyewitness accounts, the English Football Association said it will be taking "no formal action."
Two days after the Manchester derby skirmish in the tight Old Trafford tunnel, the managers of United and City went on the defensive on Tuesday.
Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola were separated by 10 miles (16 kilometers), staging near simultaneous news conferences, as they defended the conduct of their teams.
A tentative Mourinho was far less assertive than he was reported to be in the heat of Sunday's incident that further inflamed the rivalry between the English Premier League's top two.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Players and coaches of Manchester United and Manchester City were involved in a melee near the dressing rooms after a Premier League match, sparking an investigation by the Football Association on Monday.

What to watch in the leading soccer leagues in Europe this weekend:
The 12th round of the Premier League kicks off on Saturday with the north London derby, and a chance for Tottenham to validate its supremacy over Arsenal. For the first time in 22 years, Tottenham finished above its neighbor last season. Already, Mauricio Pochettino's second-place team has a four-point advantage over Arsene Wenger's Arsenal.
It was a 24-hour period at the start of November that really drove home the reality that Tottenham, after decades of playing second fiddle to Arsenal, was the new dominant force in north London.
A day after Tottenham achieved a coming-of-age 3-1 win over European champion Real Madrid in the Champions League in front of more than 80,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium, Arsenal was laboring to a 0-0 draw at home to Red Star Belgrade in the oft-maligned Europa League.

MILAN (AP) — Gonzalo Higuain celebrated his birthday weekend with two goals as he helped Juventus to a 3-1 victory at Torino in a thrilling derby match on Sunday.

DERBY, England (AP) — Former England coach Steve McClaren is back as manager of Derby County, 17 months after being fired by the club for failing to secure a return to the English Premier League.

After leaving Derby, McClaren was hired by Premier League club Newcastle but lasted just nine months before being sacked.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — With no European competitions clogging up their schedules, Chelsea and Liverpool are placing more importance on the English League Cup than usual this season.

American defender DeAndre Yedlin scored his first goal for Newcastle, striking in injury time in a 2-0 win at Derby on Saturday.
