North Melbourne have continued their rollercoaster ride on the injury front, the Roos welcoming back a key trio the same day Mason Wood was ruled out for up to two months.Jarrad Waite, Daniel Wells and Nick Dal Santo have all been passed fit to return this week, while Wood has undergone knee surgery.The emerging forward injured his left knee in the Kangaroos loss to West Coast and coach Brad Scott confirmed on Thursday he would miss six to eight weeks.They repaired the medial ligament, and also tidied up some other things in the knee, Scott said.Were expecting about a six-to-eight week recovery, which will put him pretty close to the bye before the finals, so its going to be a tight run back.But our attitude as a club is to do everything we can to try to get him back, potentially for a finals series. Well just have to rehab it as best we can.Wood has emerged as an important part of the Roos forward set-up, with his loss another setback for a team that has struggled under the weight of a lengthy injury list of late.North have been in free fall recently, losing five of six games to go from top of the ladder after 12 rounds to eighth heading into round 17.The Roos face an improving Port Adelaide at Etihad Stadium on Saturday, with the Power, their nearest challenger three games behind in ninth.Its important and to be perfectly honest were not burying our head in the sand, Scott said of the key encounter.We understand the situation with the state of the ladder and the tightness of the competition. But really our main focus is just on rediscovering our best footy.Weve been thereabouts in terms of a lot of things weve been trying to do but they havent been polished performances and they havent been good enough to get us the win.So were just really focused on getting back to our best and the rest will take care of itself.Scott dismissed calls for out-of-form forward Drew Petrie to be dropped as irrelevant, adding he had not for one second considered sending the veteran back to the VFL.

Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. MANCHESTER, England -- It was bad enough for Jose Mourinho that his first Manchester derby ended in defeat.That the architects of the loss were Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne might have been even tougher for the Manchester United manager to digest.In a resumption of the often-feisty rivalry between soccers two most coveted coaches, Guardiola got the better of Mourinho as Man City beat Man United 2-1 in the biggest match of the English Premier League so far.Citys fourth straight win to open the season was inspired by De Bruyne, a player deemed not good enough and discarded by Mourinho when both were at Chelsea.De Bruyne scored the opening goal in the 15th minute and played a big role in the second goal in the 36th, sending in a shot that thumped the post and rebounded back to Kelechi Iheanacho to tap in.Kevin had an amazing, amazing game, Guardiola said.With its crisp passing and movement, City delivered a footballing clinic in the first half at Old Trafford to humiliate United and Mourinho, who acknowledged that he couldnt wait for halftime to come. By then, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had reduced the deficit against the run of play, volleying home after City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo -- making his debut -- dropped a free kick.United couldnt cap an improved second-half display with an equalizer, leaving Mourinho with just one win over Guardiola in his last 10 attempts, and only three in a total of 17 games against Guardiolas teams.There was no sign of the bitterness that marked their meetings in Spanish football when in charge of Barcelona and Real Madrid, with Mourinho and Guardiola shaking hands and even sharing a hug before kickoff and at fulltime.I didnt come here to see about the rivalry, Guardiola said. He wants to win, I want to win. He beats me and I beat him in the future. Its as siimple as that.ddddddddddddAfter three straight wins, United dropped its first points of the season. Chelsea is the only team apart from City to have a 100 percent winning start, and plays its fourth game at Swansea on Sunday.Heres what else happened in the Premier League:---LEICESTERIt doesnt look like Leicester will deliver another fairytale title success this season.The champions were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool and have lost two of their four games so far. Leicester lost only three games last season.Perhaps Liverpool could be the unlikely title challenger this time round. Roberto Firmino scored twice while Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana also scored at Anfield, which hosted its first game of the season following the completion of work to expand the clubs main stand.Liverpool has already beaten Arsenal and Leicester this season, and drawn at Tottenham.Next up for Leicester: A break from league play and its first ever match in the Champions League, against Club Brugge on Wednesday.CONTRASTING WINSArsenal left it late. Tottenham had it easy.The two north London rivals had contrasting victories, with Arsenal needing an injury-time penalty converted by Santi Cazorla to seal a 2-1 win over Southampton at home.Spurs eased to a 4-0 win at Stoke, with forward Son Heung-min scoring twice and Harry Kane netting his first goal of the season.Its early in the season but the top six in the league has a typical look: City, Chelsea, United, Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal.OTHER RESULTSWatford came from two goals behind to beat West Ham 4-2 at the Olympic Stadium, Bournemouth beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0, Crystal Palace won 2-1 at Middlesbrough, while Burnley and Hull drew 1-1.
